We spend a lot of time in our offices so why not create an environment that inspires you and your work. Blah offices are not visually stimulating, in fact most consist of the following:
- one black chair that claims to be ergonomic.
- one black or gray waste paper basket.
- one gray desk.
- 3 gray walls. Ugh.
One thing you'll need is a place to sit, have some lunch, maybe read a book. This is where the Bibliochaise comes in handy. It's a chair which holds books, 5 meters to be exact. Its' cushions come in a wide range of colors and the exterior (book case part) comes in white, black, or aubergine (also available in other colors upon request). If you want to ramp it up even more, they also make Bibliochaise + which is veneered in oak tinted wenge or tinted black, with a wax finish and removable leather cushions in tons of colors!!! This is one of the coolest chairs I've seen.
Another cool idea is to invest in a really nice office chair. Here is an excerpt from office chair maker Herman Miller:
What do we do every day? We sit. We sit in the office and at home. Staring at our computer screens moving nothing but our fingers. We get stiff and tired.
This has now become a fact. We sit and stare in front of computers ALL DAY LONG. Humans were not meant to sit all day but we have to and we do so why not enjoy it while you can. Check out the Embody Chair by Herman Miller. It's pretty cool and comes in 13 colors!
Most likely your office floor is made of old tile or beige carpet. To remedy this atrocity, I would install FLOR carpet tiles. FLOR is the company that makes modular carpet tiles which come in many different designs, colors, and textures. It's also made from recycled and renewable material. I have it all over my house and it's one of the greatest inventions ever. If you spill something on one of the tiles all you need to do is send in the tile, they'll recycle it, and send you another one (cost of tile + shipping fee). If you have an oddly shaped room, you simply cut down the squares to fit! Check out their website: FLOR.
