As well as updates on our standard ranges we have added a couple of exciting ranges both in the operator and executive desk categories.

In addition our  range of office storage has been enhanced with a new line of steel tambour cupboards.

With regard to seating we have a completely new range of soft seating for reception areas and meeting rooms, as well as some very Shared spaces 161state of the art cubicles and acoustic pods,  with multimedia capabilities. These units are becoming more and more popular as office space becomes more expensive. Meetings no longer have to be conducted in meeting rooms

In the meeting table section we have brought back some of our larger more popular ranges and have added  some new dark wood finishes to our range of modular meeting tables.

Our range of executive office furniture now includes  Mundi and Kara, which have been revised and enhanced over the last few years, plus some new  designer ranges like Actium and  M38.  Another popular range which has been carried over is the Rio glass executive range, which is now also available with wood finish tops.

The office seating range has also been updated with some new models, both for operator and for executive seating.  More breakout and soft seating has also been added to  give the buyer more choice,  whilst still retaining that important benefit of large stocks and fast delivery and installation.

M38 Executive office furniture, available from stock

M38 Executive office furniture

CHWorkspace are pleased to be able to offer another range of Executive furniture which is available from stock in our warehouse.

It is called  M38, ( nothing to do with  the post war model M38 Willis Jeep, unfortunately)  due to the thickness of the desks tops, which is a chunky 38mm.

The styling of the range is very clean and uncluttered, with standard Bridge legs, or a “designer”  fully enclosed frame leg.

The desk tops are available in either a cinnamon walnut or a light or dark oak finish, and the leg frames are available in either an aluminium, white, or satin black finish.

New brochure for CHWorkspace

CHWorkspace is  very pleased to announce that our new brochure, the 2012 edition, has just come off the press and we are distributing copies to our valued customers.

If for some reason we have missed you, then please get in touch and we will post you a copy by return.

The 2012 brochure is mainly a consolidation of the existing ranges, although it has to be said that there are at least 10 new ranges of office furniture which have been added to our portfolio.

In addition we have increased our number of stocked ranges of meeting and training tables, along with some very interesting boardroom tables.

We intend to publish these changes and the new additions in greater detail in due course but overall we are very pleased with the design, feel and usability of the new catalogue.

One of the main changes which you will immediately notice is that the prices and technical description of each product is now incorporated into the main brochure. This is how it used to be, but we changed a few years ago and had a separate technical data and price list.   Most of our customers have commented that this was not an improvement so we have gone back to what suits our customers best.

All of the other benefits which we have always offered are still there though. Competitive pricing, free space planning, fast delivery, comprehensive range of products to suit all offices and businesses.

Despite the continuing recession and general decline in business, we are still looking after our existing customers and indeed attracting quite a number of new customers.

We feel that our new brochure reflects the current market, in that in general the product range is geared to more everyday office furniture requirements, rather than exclusive boardrooms or executive office suites.

Having said that, most of the products which were in our old brochure are still available from stock, if you were looking for something a little bit special then you can still use the old brochure or if you do not have one, let us know and we can send you one.  We also have the brochure available in PDF version and are working on an on line “flip page” version which you can view on your PC, or even your PDA or smartphone, if you are that inclined.

So thanks to all our existing customers for the continued support and we hope to offer you the same high quality profession service we have always offered.

And we look forward to offering our new customers the same service

Boardroom tables and value for money

Most businesses as some stage decide to buy some boardroom furniture, so that they can have a quality and luxurious meeting space for their customers, business managers and shareholders.

But invariably having the boardroom properly kitted out costs much more than originally anticipated.  The reasons for this are obvious but often overlooked.

First of all most boardroom tables are quite big and made with real wood. Real wood ( veneer) is very expensive when compared to an MFC finish normally associated with office furniture, and lots of it means a big price.

Secondly a big table means that a big number of chairs can be put around it.  If you are going to the expense of a  wood veneer table, it would not make sense to use some cheap fabric chairs to go with it, so once again a higher unit price multiplied by a large number means a bigger than expected cost.

We normally find that most boardrooms tend to have leather upholstery which further adds to the cost, but money can be saved here if a stylish fabric is specified instead.  In fact many  leather meeting chairs are now only leather faced ( matching vinyl is used on the back and base) which helps reduce costs.

At the top end of the leather chair pricing range is the quality leathers from Connelly and Muirhead for example. These are seriously expensive but the quality is second to none.
Further down the scale average quality hides are split into 3 layers, through their thickness to produce two very thin outer hides and one inner hide, which has no grain.

This middle hide  then mechanically stamped with a grain pattern on to give the impression of a real hide.
So three hides out of one can seriously reduce the unit cost of the leather chair.  However at this level of pricing most of these hides are stained black in order to hide the imperfections in the hide ( from barbed wire for example)

Also we often see vinyl and faux leather being used, and many of these imitate real leather very well.  Unfortunately many customers are put off by the word vinyl ( it was pretty bad 20 years ago) and it is now forbidden to hunt the faux for commercial reasons.

As with everything you really do get what you pay for, but there are some very inexpensive but good quality meeting room chairs out there in the market.
However there are also many which are imported form China which really do not stack up in terms of value for money, or continuity.

So, if you are going to spend a considerable amount of money on a new boardroom suite, it really would pay to speak to an office furniture dealer. Give them your budget and you may be surprised with what they can come up. After all they have been in this position many times whereas it is probably quite new to you.

Estime executive office furniture

CH Workspace have significantly  increased their range of executive office furniture held in stock for this year, and one of their most stylish ranges is called Estime.

A contemporary mixture of dark wood veneer and satin silver, combined with a striking and unusual leg frame design make the Estime range stand out from the crowd.

The desk tops are available in either a jet black Wenge stained oak or a warm dark honey walnut veneer. The tops and return sections are also available in 3 different glass finishes to add to the appeal.

A nice detail in this range is the desk support leg  which is a large box section U frame finished in matt silver.

The leg  frame looks substantial and stylish and is completely different to any other office   furniture range which we hold in stock.  If you don’t like the openness of the U frame there is an option to fill in the void with a veneer panel to match the desk top.

Tryane office desks in Pear and Wenge

If you are looking for an executive desk which is a bit different from the norm then have a look at what Tryane can offer you.

One of the striking shapes on offer  is a large semicircular design, with or without a return desk or computer table, in a very similar style to our Elysee desking range which we stocked a few years ago.

Like the Tryane desk this was a very unusual shape offering an amazing amount of desk space which also doubled as an impromptu meeting table for up to 5 persons

Phenix desks back in stock

After a few years absence Phenix office desks are once again back in stock and available for delivery within a matter of days.
This furniture range was a stock range a few years ago, but had to make way for some new executive ranges which we wanted to make available quickly.

But popular demand has meant that this well priced wood veneer executive range has risen from the ashes to take its well deserved place amongst the wide range of executive furniture which we hold in stock.

In case you cannot remember these stylish executive desks from our office furniture brochures in the past, this range is very traditional with big slabs of dark wood and angular edge details, giving you the impression that it was made by hand by craftsman, many years ago.
