Best Outdoor Furniture

June 05, 2013

We spend the bulk of our time here on the Madison Seating Blog discussing the finer points of indoor home or office furniture, and I would like to dedicate this post to the unsung furniture heroes who are asked to continually brave the elements of the great outdoors, while still providing functional comfort on demand. I have selected for your viewing pleasure, the following few “outdoor weather-warriors” and would welcome your feedback on these models or any general thoughts on the topic of outdoor furniture.

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…

Aeron™ Chair.

May 20, 2013

Hey everybody,

So it’s been awhile since we last discussed the Aeron™ here on the Madison Seating Blog and I thought today would be as good a day as any to revisit what is perhaps the greatest piece of office furniture ever invented.

There is certainly no need to reiterate the superlative accolades of the Aeron chair itself, the reviews, testimonials and user ratings are all out there and they more than speak for themselves. I would, however, like to focus on a particular, lesser known fact about the Aeron in today’s post.

Fitness Furniture – The Ultimate Piece of Home Workout Equipment

Fitness Furniture – The Ultimate Piece of Home Workout Equipment

May 01, 2013

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.

The Burst Mirror by Zuo Modern

From time immemorial, mirrors have adorned the walls of the wealthy and the poor,  symbolic of  both vanity and mystical reflection, an obsession for some and bane and a burden for others. Designed and purchased as much for their artistic and aesthetic appeal as for any pragmatic consideration, mirrors have always been slightly more than just another household furniture item.

The Burst Mirror is the quintessential example of the predominance of artistic influence in classical mirrors today. With an interpretive design and unique “Burst” look, the Burst Mirror is another Zuo Modern masterpiece, and would look right at home in even the most sophisticated and cosmopolitan of homes or offices.
