If you want to create a chic, contemporary office, look no further. You can blend modernly–styled furniture, lighting, desk accessories, and office supplies in ways that won't break the bank.
For a coordinated office, choose an executive desk ensemble. If you like modern details, you'll appreciate the Somerset Collection's rich maple finish and clean lines, as well as its frosted glass doors and tapered metallic legs. In addition to being stylish, it's also roomy. The L–shaped desk with its concealed vertical computer compartment, coupled with the mounted hutch, provides generous storage and work areas, and storage options can be augmented with the two–drawer lateral file and five–shelf bookcase.
You won't have to sacrifice style for comfort with a mesh manager's chair that's both ergonomic and attractive. It has a double–wrapped mesh back with padded outer frame in breathable AirSeat® fabric and a contoured over–size seat in coordinated fabric for optimum comfort, as well as padded armrests on Euro–styled metal frames. A number of other ergonomic, yet modern–looking chairs are also available in a variety of colors and upholstery.
If you're tight on space, a sleek computer cart with rounded edges and plenty of storage could be just the piece your office needs. Keep computer equipment close at hand and all together with a cart featuring a contemporary maple finish and a silver mesh metal frame, or pick one of the many other fresh styles. Most carts feature casters for mobility, a pull–out keyboard tray, a compact work surface, and platform shelves for your computer monitor, CPU, printer, supplies, and accessories.
Illuminate your work space with a modish desktop lamp. Choose the brushed steel pharmacy lamp, a classic that's been updated with a contemporary flair. It features a brushed steel base, a height adjustable arm, and a white frosted glass shade that provides muted, yet adequate lighting. Or perhaps an art deco lamp, with sturdy weighted base, wide shade, and a reflector to cut down on glare and increase illumination, would be just the thing to make your office ensemble glow.
Add a fashion statement to your desktop with wood or wire desk accessories. Solid wood mail sorters, business card holders, picture frames, and supply bins with rounded corners create an elegant flair to your office. Some wooden desk sets have a touch of glass for a refreshingly new twist. Or, choose wire mesh pieces such as desk shelves, pencil cups, and tier shelves in silver, black, or pewter for a minimalist look.
There's no rule that says your office supplies can't reflect your personal style. If you're into ultramodern designs, you'll enjoy making your mark with the Ion gel pen. You'll admire its futuristic lines and appreciate the soft–touch grip that helps keep your hand from tiring. Its black ink is refillable and the pen barrel comes in three funky color combinations — astral white/neptune, twilight gray/lunar gray, and nebula silver/jupiter orange.
