2019 Trends

Whether you’ve made a space your own at work, dressed up a cubicle, spread out on a desk or consider a home study your place to be most productive – these are trends that apply to everyone working at a desk.

Growing trends suggest that people want comfort and practicality – what feels good to sit on for 7 hours a day, plus moves with the body and can be adjusted to suit individual needs? Most chairs on the market do the standard alterations – seat moving forwards or backwards, chair rising or descending to suit leg length, optional arms etc. But what differentiates a GOOD chair from a GREAT one?

We now understand and appreciate ergonomics more than ever, realizing the importance of being supported correctly throughout the day. Ergonomically-designed chairs and desks are on the rise for a great reason and once people understand the benefits, they’re willing to pay, for having the right office set-up means prolonged productivity and increased health and wellbeing. Who doesn’t want that? Check out the Nicholas Chair to see what we mean.

This line of thinking is also crucial for the health and wellbeing of our children, who are spending more and more time on computers, or in seated positions playing on iPads or mobile phones. Bad posture can develop early, and potentially lead to back alignment issues in the future. Purchasing an ergonomically-designed chair for the family computer could be a great way to reduce these risks, ensuring that if your kids do end up spending 5 hours on the computer over the weekend (hopefully doing a bit of study, as well as playing games) then at least their backs are genuinely supported!

But it’s not a ‘one size fits all’ game. You must try a few options to find the perfect one for your body and needs. That’s where Flair office Furniture can help.

Also, there are so many colour options these days! Ensuring the chair, desk or other equipment blends seamlessly into your chosen interior isn’t a hassle anymore. Plus, making a space inviting and pleasant to be in will help your work ethic and overall mood. So, considering colours, shapes, lighting, the general materials used and accessories such as plants are all elements of a positive and great office space. These are the trends we are definitely seeing more of.

Plants are a hot item right now, and it’s funny considering we’ve always known they’re natural air purifiers and have been proven to boost positive moods. So why all of a sudden are they ‘cool’? Well, they’re cheap to buy nowadays, and there are so many species out there! Don’t get much sun at your desk, or any at all? Try Dracaenas, a Snake Plant or a Maidenhair Fern. Artificial plants are also growing in popularity, proving that the positive effects of having greenery in any office space are recognized and increasingly put into practice, with plants trending this year.

Bright colours also brighten people’s days, but you may not want a blazing orange desk or chair in your home office, especially if it’s part of the living space. Why not incorporate a colourful lamp or keyboard? Try a patterned rug or mousepad. There are many ways to bring come colour into your everyday and keep that productive mood flowing.

There are also understandable trends towards modern desk technology, for the new designs can accommodate for workers sitting and standing, which allows the body posture to change, increased blood flow through the legs and the option to alter positions through the day. Our height adjustable desk range offer perfect examples of this great technology!

So many trends, so little time. Unless you’re on your lunch break, then it’s the perfect time to check out the Flair Office Furniture range! Take a browse through our great products now.
