Cool office chairs for the summer

Although it may not feel like it yet, the days are getting warmer and longer, and before you know it, you will be sitting at your desk, and sticking to your old leather or fabric chair.

So now is the time to think of something more comfortable and cooler.

Most ergonomic chairs made today are upholstered in an open celled foam which allows more air to circulate and water vapour to escape through its membrane.

Better quality office chairs are upholstered in wicking fabric which help keep you dry and stops you sticking to the chairs.

However, whilst we can confidently say that modern day upholstery on good quality office chairs is far superior to older or budget operator chairs, if you are looking for something really cool, then you should consider one of the many mesh backed chairs in the office seating market.

Azurea reception counters get a boost


One of our best selling modular reception counters have been given a boost with the addition of a stunning dark finish, as well as the existing cherry and white oak.

Many of our executive ranges are available in this rich dark wood finish, so now the reception area can match the rest of the office.

As before all of the modules in this range are available from stock, and can be delivered and installed within a matter of days. 

The modular nature of this range means that we can come up with a wide choice of configurations and layouts to suit your space, and can produce 3 D renditions of your reception area in a matter of hours.

Despite the Azurea counters look and feel of a bespoke and therefore expensive reception counter, the pricing is extremely competitive, even for a modular system.  The detailing in the front panels and the frosted glass  reception counter tops give this range a stylish appeal mostly found in much more expensive reception systems.

Receptions areas can be designed for one or many persons, with enclosed counter units or open desk level areas.

A Buyers Guide to Executive Office Chairs

A Buyers Guide to Executive Office Chairs

What is an executive office chair? The mechanisms and adjustments available in a executive office chair should be much the same as those available in an ordinary operator chair. These adjustments should include, as a minimum, height adjustment, backrest and seat adjustment and a tension control. They should also be made to the same quality and safety standards. You may well find some very cheap executive office chairs, but be aware that the quality of the mechanisms will not be as good as the more expensive models and the ergonomics will not be to the same level.
