Can the Right Office Furniture Make You More Productive?
When you really think about it, it should come as no surprise that the condition of your workspace can dramatically affect your mental state and productivity level. If you’re continually working in an uncomfortable office, for example, this won’t only take its toll on your physical state, but will also adversely affect everything from your mood to your creativity. Therefore, having the right home office furniture, as well as the ideal layout and organisational system in place, will greatly increase the odds that you’ll be centred, focused, and ready to get to work.
Choose Comfortable Desk Chairs
You’re going to spend hours at your desk, so the first step in making your time as productive as possible is finding the most comfortable chair. If you find that you have poor posture or back and neck pain in your current chair, you may be surprised by how things change for the better when you simply swap it out for an ergonomic one that really fits your body and makes you feel at ease. You’ll be able to focus more on your work rather than on the pain or stiffness you feel. And you’ll have more energy at the end of the workday as well.
Add Rounded Furniture to Boost Creativity
Choose furniture and design a layout that focuses on rounded rather than sharp corners. In addition to reducing the risk of accidentally knocking into a sharp edge and hurting yourself, this type of furniture can boost creativity and productivity by enhancing positive emotions.
Accessorise Your Furniture with Colour and Light
The right lighting in the form of desk lamps, as well as colours that can be added in the form of desk accessories and décor can also boost creativity, mood, and productivity. If you’re in a position in which you need to continually generate new ideas, stick with blues and greens. If you need to focus a lot of attention on details, go with reds, such as cherry wood desks. And if you tend to think in an analytical manner, make sure there’s plenty of bright light on your work area. On the other hand, opt for a dimmer lamp if you need to generate creativity.

Pedder and Summer bring to the office furniture business what is often lacking in business, a real service commitment in not only providing a cost competitive price package but also providing that before and after sales care which is so important to the customer.
We have worked closely with Donnie and his team over many years for the supply of office furniture and our latest project was creating a bespoke office environment at our new corporate headquarters in Milton Keynes for over 100 people.
The design brief included wanting to source product from a UK manufacturer which also depicted our engineering heritage and requiring the use of our corporate paint scheme on the furniture to promote our company identity.
