A new addition to our office furniture and desks range!

May I present...
                                    the X2 Desking Range!

At present, we are very busy preparing our new furniture catalogue for 2011, but to give you a little peek, I thought I'd present one of our newest ranges of system desking!  The X2 range has been designed solely for its flexibility, as a system that can be used for anything from one desk to an entire workspace.  

The desks can be arranged and altered easily as and when is needed by your business, making the system practical.  The desks come in a range of different melamine or glass finishes, including wengĂ©, walnut or white glass.  

Our favourite finish is the white glass finish, because it adds an extremely sleek and contemporary style to the desk systems- though they all look fantastic!  The bases of the desks are slim and compliment the desk's modern style very well.

There are so many options available with this range.  You could have stand-alone desks, bench desking, and modular formations.  There are also matching under-desk pedestals and other storage solutions available, which compliment the desks, as well as stylish desk-dividing screens.

Why not go and see for yourself?  Take a look at the range and the various options it offers on our website.  You won't be disappointed!

Specialist Furniture for car showrooms, car dealerships and autosales!

Specialist Desks for Car Showrooms, Car Dealerships and Autosales!

Car dealerships and showrooms require 
a lot of contact with the customers- after all, when it comes down to it, we all know that it is the salesman's approach that sells a car, rather than the furniture they are sitting at!

However, we have a fantastic selection of office furniture which is specifically designed to accommodate face-to-face interaction with the customer.

We can offer 
desks with shaped tops and integral pedestals, which incorporate cable management for computers and telephones.  The desks are available in either 1500mm or 1700mm widths.   

The worktops provide more space so that they can accommodate two people sitting opposite the salesperson- they come in a range of desktop shapes so that you can choose the option that will be most helpful for your business.  

There are a range of different finishes to choose from, including Oak, Beech, Cherry, Maple and Grey MFC or veneer finishes, with slate or zinc trims.  The choice is yours!  

The retail price for this desk in an MFC finish is normally £497+VAT.  Depending on your individual needs, we can offer this desk from the special price of £347.90+VAT.

Why not have a look at our website and see what we can do for your business?

How office chairs and seating have progressed within the design world.

Design: Moving the Future Forward

'Our way of life is inflicting damage on the natural environment.  A designer's key concern should be to modify the destruction of the environment.' -Robin Day

There are so many different elements that designers consider when designing new products, including aesthetics, ergonomics, function, materials, manufacturing processes and environmental impacts.  

Designers have the difficult task of producing ideas which are innovative and set their products against the rest, whether it be through the experimentation with new materials or providing a vastly different aesthetic design.  They are always looking for ways to drive the design world forward.

How do designers move design and manufacturing processes forward?

One particular example of how an invention paved the way within the design world was the invention of the Polyprop chair.  I know that these chairs don't look like much to look at, but they were extremely influential to the design world when they were first introduced.

During the 1960s, Robin Day developed a one piece moulded polypropylene seat, which combined relatively new materials, new manufacturing technologies and had great potential for mass production.  The product is designed for its cost effectiveness and extreme durability rather than its aesthetic appeal, but if you have a look in public places you will find examples of the Polyprop chair everywhere.  

When it was launched, the product was received brilliantly- particularly by the public sector; over 14 million Polyprops have been sold worldwide, and are still used consistently today.  The polypropylene chairs and bench systems are most often seen in schools, canteens, hospitals, restaurants and train stations due to their extreme durability and functionality.

Given today's current climate, there is an immense pressure upon designers and manufacturers to produce ideas which are environmentally friendly and sustainable.  One of the most recent achievements in terms of environmentally friendly furniture is that of the 'Is' chair.  

The 'Is' chair was designed in 2008 as a solution to the need for an ergonomic, affordable chair but it went a step further- as well as being designed to accommodate its user comfortably for long periods of time, the chair is 100% recyclable.  The chair is composed from 65% recycled materials, and comes with all of the mod cons you would expect from a good ergonomic operator chair. These include:

  • Height adjustable arms as standard.
  • Width adjustable arms option.
  • Standard black base / polished base option.
  • Black moulded back / fully upholstered.
  • Synchro (with forward tilt mechanism) / dynamic mechanism.
  • Headrest option.

The creators of the 'is chair have now launched a new version of the 'is' chair with a mesh back.  The special mesh back provides ultimate lumbar support for the user whilst also offering complete ventilation.  

The low environmental impact of these wonderful chairs makes them extremely useful within office environments.  They are remarkably easy to use with fully adjustable features, simple to refurbish if you want a change, and can be fully recycled when you want to get rid of them. This would prevent an enormous amount of office waste from ending up in a landfill.
