Finding the Perfect Executive Office Furniture

There are many aspects to consider when decorating and furnishing an office. From storage space, to comfort, and even aesthetic appeal, an executive office should spare no expense. Every item should be carefully considered in order to create a space that works together to create an heir of excellence and eloquence. While there are many elements to consider, the core of an executive office is the desk and chair. In this article, we will discuss how to choose the perfect executive office furniture. 

What to Look for in an Executive Office Desk

While on the hunt for an impressive and practical executive office desk, you should consider the four “S’s”. Once you have defined these four elements you will be able to search for and find the perfect executive desk that communicates your personal brand. 

  • Size: Depending on the size of your office, you will have certain options available to you. While you still want space to move around in the office, you don’t want your desk to be dwarfed. The size required will also depend on the type of work you do. For example, are you the executive of a paperless company or do you still require space for stacks of documents? 
  • Shape: The shape of your desk will also have more of an effect than you might think. Firstly, an interestingly shaped desk can add a style element to the room and guide the direction of the rest of the office furniture and decoration. However, you must also take into consideration whether you want a traditional desk or something like an L-shaped desk that offers multiple working areas and spaces. 
  • Storage: No matter how minimalistic you are, you will always require storage space. While you might also include an interesting storage unit in your office that provides another point of interest in the room, it is extremely important to ensure that the desk you choose has extra storage space. This is a convenient place to store certain important documents, stationery, electronics, and more, while keeping your desk free of clutter.  
  • Style: As an executive, your desk should reflect who you are, your leadership style, and your personal taste. It is important to ensure that you find a desk that truly brings you aesthetic joy when you see it. 

What to Look for in an Executive Office Chair

Yes, an executive office chair should be striking, large, and aesthetically pleasing. It should also suit the style of your desk and the overall look and feel of the room. However, there are also some practical functionality and features that it should possess. Without these features, you might end up regretting choosing a specific chair. 

  • Comfort: The most important aspect of an executive chair is its comfort level. You will be sitting quite a lot and have important meetings in that chair. The last thing you want is to be distracted by your discomfort while in the middle of an important conversation that could impact the company. Therefore, be sure to test out chairs before buying one as you need to be sure that you will be absolutely comfortable after hours of sitting it. 
  • Mobility: While it might not seem like it, mobility can make a world of difference when it comes to ease of use. Try finding a swivel chair that sports some wheels. This will make it easy to get in and out of when greeting important people or reaching for documentation on one side of the desk. 
  • Egonomics: A chair might be comfortable but is it supporting your body correctly while seated? An ergonomic chair will ensure that almost every aspect of the chair can be adjusted to suit your specific body. From armrests, to the headrest, and the height of the chair or back support, an ergonomic chair can be perfectly adjusted to what you require.
