Contemporary office furniture has experienced an upsurge in popularity in recent years. This popularity has resulted in more than anything else from a change in the way people perceive the workplace. In the time of our grandparents, the phrase “work is work” was common. To people of that generation, this was another way of saying that work is seldom fun, nor should it be considered fun. Work back then meant doing something you may not enjoy doing so you can make the money you need to pursue your own interests in your free time.

Few people today, however, view work in the same harsh terms. Countless studies have been conducted in the past 3 decades that indicate that productivity actual suffers when workers develop poor morale. Experts have found that working hard does not always produce higher quality or larger profit margins. Rather, it often produces manufacturing flaws, bad customer service, attrition, and delayed deliverables. To avoid this, companies have begun looking for ways to make the workplace a positive, stimulating environment. That’s where contemporary office furniture has come to play such a significant role in today’s workplace.

The highly eclectic aesthetic that characterizes today’s modern office allows for great freedom of design. Traditional desks, casegoods, and tables were limited to strict rules of proportion which often dictated both the dimension and the geometry of a piece. While this resulted in a very stylish, elegant look, ergonomics were typically ignored. Furniture that looked great to people standing in front of it became a source of agitation, moodiness, aches, and pains after workers sat in for more than a few hours. We don’t have this problem with contemporary office furniture because we can build it with ergonomics in mind, allowing the function to determine the geometry and size of the desk, table, or workstation we are designing.

With greater freedom of form now available, office furniture manufacturers like Cubiture also have greater freedom of design. Since we are no longer limited to wood, we can construct workstations out of other materials such as laminates, glass, veneers, and brightly colored fabrics. Both the constitution and the color of material contributes to the overall aesthetic of its surroundings. By carefully selecting these elements and creating the right color scheme an office furniture designer can generate an optimal mental and emotional state in which workers can feel—and perform—at their very best.

Contemporary office furniture is also a lot easier to configure and reconfigure than traditional desks and casegoods. Because the emphasis is on function and geometry more than decorative embellishment, it is easier to cluster contemporary pieces around workflow simply by selecting pieces that compliment (but do not have to necessarily match) surrounding elements in the room. Also, since many contemporary workstations are modular in nature, they can be altered or expanded simply by removing or adding individual key components.

Companies who are looking to grow should seriously consider contemporary office furniture because it will retain its appeal and its resale value much longer than traditional furnishings will. Not everyone likes traditional furniture, so the resale market for older looking pieces is significantly smaller than that for more modern styles. Furnishings made from quality laminates and glass retain their appearance longer if properly cared for, so contemporary pieces often weather usage much better than those made from wood-based materials. This is not a hard-fast rule but is more often the case than not.

Consider both the long-term financial benefits of buying furniture that ill remain in style, retain its luster, and performs exceptionally well in the ergonomic arena.
