Welcome back to the the New Orleans Office Furniture Options series! Last week we looked at the various types of desks you can choose from for your New Orleans office. This week we are speculating on the various chairs that are available for your office.
- First, there is there standard desk chair. Base, four or five wheels sticking out in a starfish pattern, cushioned seat, and cushion or web back. These chairs may be fine for starters, but expect to have to replace them soon as they are not that durable and definitely not very comfortable. Your employees health and comfort may well depend on the quality of the chair they sit in for 8-10 hours a day, so think about employee retention when you buy things like office chairs!
- Next, there is the executive chair; it is usually high quality leather and may or may not be rolling. Everyone remembers the infamous boss’ chair in the move Nine to Five – seeing that thing tip over backwards made for laughs in the theater, but it’s not so funny when you are the one going over backwards, cracking your head and seeing the twittering birds circle above you (and wondering later if your secretary dumped rat poison in your cuppa joe!) Make sure you get something both comfortable and professional looking.
- Finally, there’s the chair of all chairs – reception. Making your consumer base uncomfortable is NOT a good plan, and cheaping out in reception is a sure fire way top ensure your clients are disgruntled if they have to wait for any period of time,. Look for comfortable chairs and provide a variety – some short seated and high backed, others large and plush. A few benches will not be amiss for those with children in tow or a large briefcase.
Office chairs are definitely an important item of New Orleans Office Furniture, and you should search for just the right pieces to ensure the comfort of both visitors, employees and management. Choose wisely and you won’t have to replace them annually, meaning better profits in the long run as well as happier staff and clients!
