Celebrate Arbor Day with these benefits of wood office furniture

April 29th is Arbor Day — a day to plant a tree, hug a tree, or at least think about trees a little more than you usually do. It may seem counterintuitive to celebrate Arbor Day this way, but we figure that celebrating our fallen arboreal friends is at least a step in the right direction.

Productive home office

Your home office should have plenty of function while still incorporating your personal touch.

The workplace is rapidly changing in the 2016. One of the biggest changes is the increasing prominence of the “telecommuter.” With so much focus being placed currently on the concept of “work-life balance,” telecommuting allows employees to, well, balance work and life.
