Remember the office of the ‘80s and ‘90s? Unless you were lucky enough to be a Barbie Doll, you may have been shoehorned into a white melamine cubicle with a chunky monitor pervading most of your desk space and a stack of Post-It Notes at hand. Perhaps the directors sat in their separate rooms with a solid cherry-wood executive desk and a green leather Chesterfield for visitors.

 

Fast forward to 2019 and the trends in modern office design feel clearer, lighter and fresher.

The Peter Green Commercial Team took a trip to London to check out some of our suppliers’ latest furniture and found a lot of fun, creativity and versatility for enhancing workspaces. Work booths are popular for dead spaces, desks that rise at a touch of a button encourage movement and accessories like adjustable monitor arms make hot-desking ergonomics easy. The clever use of muted and zingy accent colours with plain matt, textured wood or rich wood finishes give a sense of positive calm.
