Choosing designer up-market pieces lets you create a high-end look whether your office is traditional, modern, industrial, eclectic or minimalistic. Regardless of the style you are after, up-market office furniture is a great way to enhance your business and send a positive message to staff and clients.
In order to get the most out of your budget – no matter how big or small – you will want to choose designer office furniture carefully. Some up-market designers specialize in a particular aesthetic, and this design style is often one of the most important factors in which pieces you select. Up-market furniture is an investment; in order to get the most value, choose furniture that will last. Classic pieces, those that will increase in value, and those that mesh with your long-term vision for your office space or for your company as it grows and changes are always sound choices. Overly trendy pieces or those that are poorly constructed aren’t likely to stand the test of time, even if your office refurbishment is decidedly contemporary.
Choose to spend the most on significant pieces that aren’t easily replaced: desks, ergonomic chairs, conference tables, luxury appliances or office equipment. With these foundation pieces, you can easily and affordably change the look of your office space by switching out artwork, light fixtures and decor as needed.
Where you shop for designer office furniture will depend largely on your budget.
If you are lucky enough to be planning an office redesign where money is no object, you are likely to spare no expense when it comes to your office furniture. You may shop directly from top of the line furniture houses or commission local artisans or designers to create one-of-a-kind pieces for your office. Working with a professional decorator who specializes in office interiors is also an excellent way to get just the right luxury furniture, as these professionals will have access to all the latest and best products.
Even if you are working on a tight budget, you can still select a few designer pieces that will complement more ordinary office furniture. You may be able to find high-end luxury pieces at resale shops, discount outlets or purchase discontinued styles directly from the manufacturer. You can also sometimes find good deals on designer furniture from emerging design houses looking to establish their business; these new manufacturers are often more willing to negotiate prices in order to have their pieces seen and help build their reputation. Taking the extra time to find great deals on up-market office furniture is well worth the effort, as these timeless pieces will lend an air of sophistication and polish to your workspace.
You will pay higher prices for luxury furniture, but this is often one of the best investments your company can make. Filling your workspace with tasteful up-market furniture – even if it is only a few pieces – makes a strong first impression on new clients and gives a sense of reassurance to existing customers. Confident clients are happy clients, and are more likely to come back to you time and again.
