A Buyers Guide to Executive Office Furniture

Executive office furniture generally falls into two main categories, contemporary and classic. The materials used in the construction of executive business  furniture range from standard melamine-faced board, through glass, steel and aluminium to real wood veneers.

Modern melamine finishes are very hard wearing and are difficult to tell apart from real wood, so you might want to consider this as a low cost alternative to a veneer finish.

There are basically three different methods of supply of business  furniture, some products are held in stock and can be delivered within a few days, others are standard products where the components are held by the manufacturer and the pieces of furniture are built to order – this can take from two to four weeks – and the third type is where the furniture is bespoke and built to your own specification. This is the most expensive method and delivery can take up to six to ten weeks from order.

CH Workspace has access to products in all these categories. The K.West range is stocked in a wide range of components so that you can effectively design your own desk to suit your own requirements. K.West is a
