Cardboard Furniture

Cardboard Furniture

July 31, 2013

Not ‘looks like cardboard’ furniture, not ‘has a little piece of cardboard stuck somewhere’ furniture, not even ‘half made out of cardboard and the other half normal’ furniture; no! real, bona fide, start to finish and top to bottom CARDBOARD furniture!

As the days of summer progress and temperatures continue to rise, some of us (myself included) scramble for the air conditioned refuge of the indoors, and only venture out when absolutely necessary, and even then, only when the promise of an air conditioned vehicle awaits. For others, more tolerant of the heat than I, this is the time of year when it seems as if the great outdoors are calling them by name, and they seize every opportunity to bask in the warmth of the summer sun.

It is to the latter that I address this post.

Walking Desks. Furniture or Fad?

Walking Desks. Furniture or Fad?

June 03, 2013

The “walking” or “treadmill”  desk is the perfect remedy for those of us who have had a gym membership for the past five years and are still gearing up for our first visit. It’s trendy, sensible and it’s potential benefits could fill a blogpost of their own.

It seems that this is a growing furniture trend that we are slowly seeing more of…

But will it stick?

Trends are fickle things… what catches on and what slips away often has less to do with the soundness or sense of the idea and more to do with the pop culture perspective towards it.

Five years from now, will we 9 to 5′ers be walking our way through the day with the walking desk a fixture in the corporate world, or will the idea of treadmill desks have faded from societies collective horizon completely…

For most people with back pain or stiffness, chairs of any kind are usually avoided at all costs. Even for those who are fortunate enough (or simply, still young enough…) to be pain and stiffness free, but who spend large portions of their day seated, at a desk or in the office, no doubt recognize the myriad ergonomic issues inherent in the “sitting in a chair all day with poor posture” lifestyle.

Leap Chair by Steelcase

The Leap chair by Steelcase has a back that changes shape to support the entire spine. This can reduce the chance of lower back sag and a hunched posture, which may weaken disc walls, stress back ligaments and cause deterioration of the spine.

With its Natural Glide System As you recline: the seat glides forward so you can recline without leaving your Vision and Reach Zone, so you stay oriented to your work. This encourages more varied postures so there’s less static load on the spine.

Thermal Comfort Thanks to slats in both its back and seat, and the special foam it uses, the Leap chair offers excellent “breathability.” It effectively controls a balance of heat and moisture so you stay comfortable.

Know Your Furniture: Drafting Chairs

April 11, 2013

Your chair has a message to share with the world, with your colleagues and with your clients.

It tells a story. The story of you.
