If you take a quick look at business offices online, you’ll notice that they have a lot in common; they’re streamlined and clean, sometimes perhaps verging on clinical. A great first impression is vital when it comes to a long-standing relationship with clients.
But to achieve that, you don’t have to go with bright white office furniture which seems devoid of all personality. Making a statement with colour and quirky furniture, especially if your business presents itself as fresh and modern, may be just as effective when it comes to first impressions.
We’ve recently expanded our aircraft inspired Aviator range, which we think is absolutely perfect if you’re looking for industrial style furniture with wow-factor which is still tremendously practical.
Arguably, having enough space to work at is the most important thing when it comes to furnishing an office. These days, there are plenty of ways of doing it.
Of course, you can opt for a standard single-desk arrangement (these Aviator Half Wing Desks would look incredible lining each side of an office in a smaller company). However, this is potentially an expensive way of doing things if you need to buy a lot of desks.
At Modish Living, we’re big fans of the community culture which a conference table inspires. Something like the Aviator boardroom table is absolutely perfect to sit lots of staff around (particularly great if you operate a hot desk system). If you need to sit a lot of people, you could even push two of these tables together to create a great team working atmosphere.
The new brass colour available in the Aviator collection is stunning when paired with leather. The warmth in the metal is really brought out by the rich colour of brown leather and makes for a truly spectacular pairing.
A comfortable leather office chair is great for creating a stylish space which is also uber practical. After all, there’s nothing worse than spending 8 hours sat on the world’s most uncomfortable chair!
However, additionally, if you often have clients popping in for a chat, a small seating area is a great idea; a couple of the brown leather armchairs look fantastically impressive and they are wonderfully comfortable. Perhaps you could even pair with the Aviator Coffee Table to create a snug area in your office where you can converse with clients over a cup of tea and a biscuit or two.
The industrial furniture collection also looks fantastic as home office furniture, creating an inspiring workspace you won’t mind being in for many hours at a time. Paired with more traditional furniture pieces, one or two items from the Aviator collection is set to become a fantastic centrepiece.
Creating the Look
When it comes to decorating an office, it’s important you consider the image you want to create when anyone walks through the door. With pieces as statement as the Aviator collection, you may wish to keep it simple with the rest of the space; think wooden flooring, soft grey walls and minimal decorations.
Alternatively, to really amp up the industrial styling, a faux brick on one wall of your office would look fantastic. Perhaps you could even add those industrial lights which spell out the name of your company along the wall or add a collection of unique, second-hand mirrors to create a stunning feature.
