Stuck for Space?

We all know how quickly paperwork and files build up until you suddenly can't see your desk anymore...The question is how can we tackle this?  Well, we have an answer!  

Mobile storage solutions can save a huge amount of space within your building, whether you need to store files in your office, stock in the warehouse or skeletons in the cupboard- the capacity of these things is amazing!  You don’t have to be a professional wrestler to move them either!  With the clever technology, you can move tons of paper (literally) with just one finger!  

The storage options can be any size and for any use, but how does it all work?

Side to Side Storage

The side-to-side storage option consists of four fixed shelving units at the back of the system, with two groups of three shelving units placed in front- these front shelving units are placed on special runners so that you can just slide the units along in order to gain access to the shelves that you desire. 

Side-to-side storage maximises narrow, alcove and wall space, providing you with the maximum storage space with minimum movement required.  We recommend that the slide away storage is composed of units up to three bays deep for total storage efficiency; the storage units are demountable and relocatable.  

This option is light, quick, easy to use and certainly makes the paperwork look a lot tidier!

Mobile Storage

These storage options are particularly popular within libraries.  They comprise of several shelving units which are set on runners.  

Each unit has a handle, which enables you to steer along the units in order to find a specific shelf.  The handles also incorporate a locking system which enables you to lock the units in place whilst you are using a particular unit- it also prevents others from trying to move the shelves whilst you are using them!

In most circumstances, mobile shelving will increase capacity by up to 80% or reduce floor space by 30%, to provide an excellent capital spend.

There is such a wide array of shelving accessories to help to organise your storage systems.  This includes:-

  • Pull out drawers

They don't make furniture like they used to...or do they?

With the advances of computer aided manufacture and mass production, it has become very easy for manufacturers to focus upon the rapid production of products whilst forgetting to focus on quality- you will often find people berating the state of consumerism, comparing it to the more idyllic days where production was a lot more hands on.  It becomes increasingly difficult to find more unique products which are of a high quality.  

At Verve Workspace, we really care about the quality of our products, and offer ranges of reproduction furniture that is manufactured to the highest quality.  In the above photo, for example, you will see a beautiful chest which is currently being carved in one of our factories, ready for a castle in Scotland.  

The chest has been carved completely by hand (or chisel, and has taken two months to complete so far- that's dedication!  If you look closely, the detail and craftsmanship of the chest is absolutely phenomenal- and it has involved no machinery to cut corners, which is rare in this day and age.  

We offer a wide variety of reproduction furniture covering many different eras- from William and Mary solid oak pieces to Edwardian styles of the 1900s.  We take great care with the proportions of these pieces as well as the amalgamation of traditional construction methods with modern techniques and materials.  

However, we can also make subtle functional changes to many pieces, so that they are able to accommodate modern technology.  This desk, for example, is designed to accommodate computer equipment effectively, without compromising the aesthetics of this classic style.

There are so many options available from writing tables to armchairs and Chesterfield sofas, and it is also often possible to change dimensions to create furniture options that are more bespoke for your company.  

If you have any queries about reproduction furniture, or would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact us on: 08450 69 79 89, and we'll be happy to help you.
