Edwards & Hill Office Furniture makes headlines in the Monday Morning Quarterback Magazine

Interior design projects

Great news for Edwards & Hill Office Furniture! Founders Tony Hill and Hans Edwards have been featured in the Monday Morning Quarterback magazine.

This publication is primarily focused on the commercial furniture industry. In the magazine Tony and Hans are recognized for their 15+ years of hard work and success growing Edwards & Hill Office Furniture.

Tony and Hans office furniture dealership has no alignment with any major manufacturer and that comes with many advantages.

Early on in their business ventures, Tony and Hans never imagined they would be office furniture dealers. They originally owned a Maryland communications company called Edwards & Hill Communications. The communications company focused on event management for corporate clients.

The young entrepreneurs got into the office furniture industry in an unexpected way. They ordered six-chairs for the U.S. Army.

This happened 12 years ago. Since then, Tony and Hans have managed a thriving office furniture dealership in Maryland.

This Friday September 27th, Tony and Hans will move their company to a new, bigger and state of the art, showroom and warehouse in Annapolis Junction, Maryland.

This expansion was possible because of their hard work and utmost level of professionalism, but could not have been accomplished without the great staff at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture.

The two business leaders have been involved with some of the largest interior design projects in the region, such as the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. During this project, Edwards & Hill Office Furniture installed 2,000 guest rooms with furniture, fixtures and equipment.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture can offer your business interior design services, furniture and installations no matter where your business is located in the United States.

Tony and Hans humble beginnings allowed them to successfully carve out their own niche. They have fresh eyes for every interior design project.

Just take a look at the Maryland Live! Casino back of house furniture Tony and Hans led the team as they supplied and installed the furniture in record time.  This is just one example of the excellent customer service Edwards & Hill Office Furniture provides time and time again to their clients.

When things need to be done, Tony and Hans get them done because they are customer focused. They want to make a difference to their customers by providing them the best interior design experiences.

As the years have gone by, that customer focus has helped Tony and Hans expand their list of suppliers. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture specializes in Office, hospitality and healthcare furniture projects.

The big move to the new facility happens this Friday. The place is a 7,200 square foot location that features a working showroom, dedicated showroom, library and warehouse.

How to revamp your Office Reception Area

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

reception area designs

Is your office reception area looking a bit rundown? Is the hideous office design scaring away your clients?

Then it’s time to revamp your office reception area.

An office reception area is the first impression your clients have about your business services and level of professionalism.

When clients walk into your business, you want them to have positive vibes about your business brand.

You can create these positive vibes with great office furniture and a stylish interior design.

But where do you start?

First, decide on your color theme. You can start to brainstorm about the colors you will use for the reception area based on popular color themes used in your industry. Tie those color themes with your business brand colors and you will have a unique design. When in doubt, go for neutral colors such as gray, cream and blue. Neutral colors will help you create an illusion of a more spacious reception area because light reflects off of neutral colors.

If you prefer a more modern look, go for brighter colors rather than dark colors.

Remember, your color theme should be warm and inviting to your clients as well as your staff of employees.

Next, you should create a list of furniture items that will increase your work productivity while enhancing the comfort of clients and employees alike. People return to environments that make them feel good.

Here is a list of essential reception area furniture items:

  • The reception desk. The best reception desks have curved countertops to give receptionists a great overview of the office space and help clients easily place documents on the desks without taking up space for your staff of receptionists. Your staff can also assist more than one client at a time with such a design. The most popular reception desks for modern office spaces are rectangular office desks and L-shaped desks.

  • Reception area seating. When it comes to seating in the reception area, you should furnish the office with ergonomic chairs and sofas that maximize space and comfort. It is important that clients have plenty of space between each other to prevent aggravation during long waiting periods. The best reception lounge chairs are those that feature cushioned seating and offer plenty of back support.

  • File Cabinets /Storage furniture items. Receptionists can never have enough storage because filing is part of their daily work routine. Purchase vertical and horizontal filing cabinets to make the most of your storage area. When your staff has the appropriate storage, you can de-clutter your office and make it more welcoming to your clients. If the receptionist area is well organized, clients will get the impression that your business services will keep their private matters in order. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture recommends storage for magazines as well as brochures for those visiting your office.

The Benefits of Ergonomic Computer Furniture

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

ergonomic office furniture

Summer is over and you will be spending more time at the office for business. No matter your job, it’s important that your office is designed to be as comfortable as possible.

Studies have shown that offices furnished with ergonomic furniture can help workers focus more on the tasks at hand and help them be more productive.  It may also reduce missed time from work.

If you want a work space that offers great comfort, you should purchase ergonomic furniture and accessories.

What is ergonomic Computer furniture?

Ergonomic Computer furniture is office furniture designed to reduce neck pain and lower the risk of work injury by positioning computer screens at proper height.

Anytime an office desk is setup for computer usage, the computer should be set at the eye level of the worker.

This means no need for the worker to bend his or her neck or have the need to look lower to properly do computer tasks.

When a computer is improperly positioned on a desk, a worker can also experience chronic joint and muscular pains from locking his/ her wrist/ forearm to operate the computer mouse or keyboard.

To ensure comfort at the desk, you have to go beyond simply purchasing ergonomic seating. You will need both an ergonomic chair and desk.

The ergonomic desk will have a design that keeps your computer at eye level at all times.  This can be accomplished with a height adjustable desk or accessories like an adjustable computer monitor arm.

The standard ergonomic computer desk can offer a shelf that allows the user to adjust the computer to a comfortable height.  An ergonomic keyboard tray will help with tension in the arms, hand and shoulders.

Never again will you have to strain your neck to see your computer screen. Never again will tension build up in your wrist or forearm.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture we have all kinds of ergonomic furniture solutions – ergonomic chairs, ergonomic desks, ergonomic gel pads and other ergonomic furniture.

Here are some features you should look for while shopping for ergonomic computer furniture:

  • Adjustable keyboards as well as detachable keyboards

  • A computer screen that can be adjusted by tilting up or down

  • An ergonomic chair that permits your feet to rest completely on the floor while assisting your body to properly circulate blood in the legs and feet.

  • Armrests that appropriately support your lower arms and upper arms.

  • Good backrest  and lumbar support to maintain a healthy and comfortable posture.

Our bodies frequently move when we try to force ourselves to sit or stand in a fixed position for an extended period of time.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture we have ergonomic furniture that will support you, relieve your body of physical pains and truly help you get work done without sacrificing comfort.

At Edwards & Hill Office Furniture we have available ergonomic in a variety of colors and designs.

Have a look at our ergonomic furniture items to enhance your workspace comfort today.
