When you are in an executive position in a company, you start to realise how important the image that you project is. Your office furniture can play a role in how your clients, employees and business partners see you, and here is how:

  • Decide on your executive office style. Do you want to appear focused and hardworking? Or maybe you’re more of a creative and cutting edge type? Or would you like your office to reflect a more traditional appearance? In whatever style you choose, it is important to reflect both your personality and your business ethics in the office furniture that you ultimately choose. The rule of thumb is to show your personality through your accessories and your business ethics through your furniture.If you decide on a focused and hard working style, opt for office furniture consisting of dark woods and clean lines. Furniture that is more creative and cutting edge focuses on glass and metal; trendier pieces. If you want more traditional office furniture, choose oversize desks and coordinating pieces.
  • Choose furniture that is comfortable and functional. Don’t buy furniture that contorts your body into unnatural positions just because it looks amazing. Make sure that the executive office chair you buy yourself comes with all the required support. Choose chairs for visitors to your office that you yourself would like to sit in – there is nothing worse than having to sit through a meeting in a hard backed chair with no padding.

As well as taking these things into account, it is important to remember the image that you are intending to project. You want office furniture that will help to impress potential clients, be inviting to your employees, and to be functional for yourself and your business partners.
