Office Furniture Manufacturers that are California Cool

Today’s leading office furniture manufacturers provide office furniture that is easy to customize to the needs of employees. Whether you have an animation studio in Burbank or an architectural firm near downtown Los Angeles, a solution like open-plan desking from a maker like Maverick can create a welcoming collaborative work space.

California is home to several excellent office furniture manufacturers that create innovative and durable products for a range of businesses. An entrepreneurial spirit runs through each one and that includes a commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.

Maverick Desk

In the early 90s, the founders of Maverick Desk were doing all the work of creating desks for customers, packing the items, and handling sales. The hands-on approach gave them the knowledge and understanding to meet customer demands. Today’s cutting-edge automation at their site in Los Angeles allows the company to manufacture custom desks, conference tables and other office products within 72 hours or less.

DeskMakers

Turn an ordinary reception area into an inviting space with a customizable reception desk that has a sleek appearance. Flexible office design for lobby furniture, conference tables, and case goods are a strength for DeskMakers.

From its beginnings in East Los Angeles in the mid-sixties, DeskMakers has grown to be one of the leading office manufacturers on the West Coast. Innovation, and laughter, are among the core values that guide their manufacturing process.

9 to 5 Seating

Ergonomically designed chairs that are manufactured well reduce muscle strain when sitting for long hours at a work station. 9 to 5 Seating in Hawthorne is a forward-thinking manufacturer crafting chairs to meet the needs of specific industries like healthcare, hospitality, and environments that demand heavy-duty seating.

In its 30 years, 9 to 5 Seating has developed an all-inclusive approach to manufacturing that handles an entire process from design to powder coating—like 10 factories in one facility.

Friant

Professional firms like credit unions and municipalities needing smart-looking office furniture are among the customers who appreciate products made by Friant. The San Leandro-based manufacturer also provides excellent storage solutions with free-standing cabinets.

Environmental awareness is built-in to Friant’s process, using LED lights in the factory that vary the amount of energy used according to the needs.

ERG International

Corporations, universities, and healthcare facilities needing soft seating in lounge areas or attractive and sturdy chairs for stacking can find what they need with ERG International. Based in Oxnard, the family-owned manufacturer that started in 1981 offers unlimited color selections for a range of tables, cabanas and chairs.

Its automated system results in high-quality products that meet rigorous environmental standards.

Via Seating

A chair is “the single most crucial factor that can impact your health and wellness at work,” according to Via Seating. Companies that want unique “motion seating” solutions can look closely at Via Seating’s product line, developed with more than 30 years of manufacturing experience.

Chairs are made for every possible task in an office including outdoor seating with an innovative design.

Update: Office Technology Trends 2019

Office Technology Trends 2019

Leveraging Smart Office Capabilities for a Worker-Friendly Environment

What the smart office looks like and how it functions depends on the company’s purpose and objectives. Today’s technology and current office trends supports an array of industries:

  • A financial planner wants new insights on a client and uses a smart CRM (Customer Relationship Management)
  • A manufacturing firm streams data to schedule equipment maintenance and conserve energy consumption.
  • A local school district troubleshoots connectivity issues
  • A warehouse uses autonomous robots to pull customer orders off shelves.
  • A video game firm and police department can use a technology like Virtual Reality to create simulations for completely different purposes.

What is the Smart Office?

A smart office gives employees the technological tools needed to work effectively in support of what the company wants to achieve. Office trends today strongly exhibits that working smarter isn’t just based on human intellect anymore.

Today’s technology is amazing, but the end game is meeting the needs of people. A well-planned smart office is responsive to the needs of workers and customers.

In the world of online retail and logistics, companies that deliver packages quickly make customers happy and are positioned to compete well and win future orders. Making it easy for a customer to place an online order is an important part of success in the supply chain. Warehouses use autonomous robots to quickly pull items off of shelves and package them for quick shipping.

Technology can work at a personal level, too. In a school, imagine a student who suffers from the fear of mathematics using a device equipped with Artificial Intelligence to map the student’s learning patterns. It can offer feedback and take the student through a step-by-step process to gain confidence and answer correctly.

Technology is made to function for an established purpose and fit within a workplace strategy.

Smart Office Benefits

The tech start-up coming out of one of the nation’s robotic hubs will certainly use the latest connective technologies, but mature industries like life-sciences, financial services, and education are sending and pulling from the Cloud.

Sensors have dropped in cost along with vision systems to collect constant streams of data in split second intervals to make decisions. Think of a self-driving or autonomous vehicle. Australian mining giant Rio Tinto uses self-driving trucks weighing 46 tons to transport iron ore. They can operate safely 24 hours a day if necessary and use a myriad of sensors to gauge the shortest distances to save on fuel.

Technology is responsive and unifying. Los Angeles has used a “centralized business intelligence system” to create efficiencies among more than 500 datasets spread across multiple city agencies. The data is accessed to work with private businesses, nonprofits, and universities.

Office Trends Point to Smart Office Furniture

Chairs and desks are no longer static objects. Estimates say that 26 billion “Internet of Things” devices (every day objects with embedded computing devices interconnected via the Internet, enabling them to send and receive data from one another) will be connected to office furniture in the next five to six years.

Offices already have access to innovative furniture. Height-adjustable desks are a reality and promote health by allowing staff to change positions while working. How about getting a reminder to stand now and then by a Bluetooth-enabled desk? Some desk models now have touchscreens embedded in the table to prompt workers with reminders for lunch and tasks to complete.

Sensors can also be implemented to determine the temperature and humidity at a desk for maximum comfort and energy efficiency.

Wireless charging panels will grow in popularity, too. Place a smartphone on a desk or table to power it up with no wires required. This can eliminate trip hazards like extension cords.

Stay up-to-date on office furniture innovations with the experience of 2010 Office Furniture, totaling more than 40 years in planning office set-ups and working with management teams to furnish entrepreneurial start-ups and established corporations.

New VS Used Office Furniture Checklist Revealed

New VS Used Office Furniture

Choosing Between Buying New Vs Used Office Furniture

Buying office furniture is a cost of being in business. When faced with purchasing new vs used office furniture such as desks, chairs, tables, cabinets, etc., make sure to use strategic thinking to make decisions. Money isn’t the only benchmark that determines the value of a purchase.

Other key considerations include how furniture reflects the company brand in addition to how it supports the staff in getting the job done. Do a cost-benefit analysis of buying new versus used by laying out key parameters.

Money

Let’s face it. Managing cash flow is critical for business success so the idea of buying used furniture at prices much lower than new is tempting. Money can be spent on other, more important things like bonuses or marketing to promote goods and services.

But wait. It’s important to define new and used.

The cost of new quality office furniture isn’t that much greater than used quality office furniture. New is backed by warranties while used comes under the warning of “what you see is what you get.”

New office furniture products like chairs and shelving that are found in the Big Box retail outlets may actually cost less than used furniture that’s made with care by a reputable manufacturer. The reason is that Big Box items are made for a limited life.

Plus, new furniture may have innovations that the old doesn’t, such as seats that adjust to a person’s weight and movements.

Functionality

Purchasing new office furniture can make it easy to plan work spaces with pieces that are clearly related and fit together, a benefit for employees who work in collaboration with each other. Buying used doesn’t lend itself to an enhanced design.

Workstations can be put together in logical fashion with new furniture and height-adjustable desks properly selected.

Productivity and Employee Health

New furniture is designed to enhance productivity. A chair is not just a chair. Ergonomic chairs, and workstations that place a computer at a proper eye level reduce the strain on the neck and shoulder muscles.

Which staff may be susceptible to bad backs or already have aches and pains? An inexpensive office chair that’s picked up for forty or fifty dollars could aggravate the situation and lead to missed time at the office.

Brand

Buying new can enhance a company’s brand both internally and to customers. It shows a commitment to excellence and can foster a positive attitude, while buying used furniture can look put together one piece at a time and display a “reactive” approach versus a “proactive” approach.

The decision truly does go beyond merely comparing the price tags of buying new vs used office furniture.  Understanding what’s behind a lower price tag is key. Less money may be spent on the purchase, but there are no real benefits while leading to other, unseen costs.

Determine your needs, browse the product categories, and invite 2010 Office Furniture to share their experience of more than 40 years, selecting furniture that enhance the office experience for major corporations and start-ups throughout Southern California.

How To Set Up An Office Space

How To Set Up An Office Space

How to Arrange Office Furniture for Comfort and Productivity

Comfortable and efficient office spaces happen with proper planning. Ones arranged most effectively are adaptable for the future. Facility managers tasked with office space set up or reconfiguring a floor space can follow these steps to choose the furniture that meets the needs of staff and serves the company’s goals.

Plan for the Right Amount of Public and Private Space

An open office plan compared to spaces divided by cubicles and individual desks changes the type of furnishings used. It’s possible to strike a balance between the two and that means choosing a third option.

Open plan benching gives employees the chance to communicate and share ideas while giving an office an open and airy look. However, private spaces can’t be ignored or forgotten. Those can be created with private enclaves such as co-op lounges or can be configured by putting together individual lounge chairs for the appropriate office space set up.

Dividing the office into work areas using cubicles allows for greater personal focus on tasks. Distractions are reduced or removed and allow for a feeling of ownership of spaces. Cubicles today don’t have to be the same traditional shade of gray. Translucent panes of glass and panels with a myriad of earth tones allow for many inviting options. Employees can then feel like they’re walking into an area that has personality.

Desks that are clustered in sizes of about four users can have privacy panels that provide a mix between totally open benching and the cloistered look of cubicles. An office area still has a light and open appearance while each worker has their clearly defined work and personal space.

Offices can also be divided up among small teams, so that four people are together in one area and perhaps six or seven in another with cubicles creating boundaries.

Modular desk systems make future adjustments easy and minimize disruption.

Plan for Health and Wellness

Ergonomics should rank high as a consideration for choosing furniture. Employees who use chairs that adjust to the body’s natural weight and movements are less prone to aggravate lower back muscles and hips.

When desk surfaces are at height that allow for computers to be at proper eye level then strain is reduced on shoulder and neck muscles.

Its important to note that ergonomics isn’t just a passing fad. A guide from the Mayo Clinic details the importance of the office environment on the health. For sitting, a person’s neck shouldn’t be bending forward to see the computer screen. A monitor should be about an arm’s length away while hands should be at or just below elbow level.

Keeping furniture clean should be a priority. Purchase items that don’t have small cracks and tiny places for bacteria to build.

Plan for Adaptability

The days of one desk size fits all is long gone. Now it’s realistic to give employees the option for sitting, standing, and adjusting surfaces for someone’s height and comfort. Look for height-adjustable tables to use with teams and height adjustable desks for single users.

Knowing these preferences shows the staff that the company is invested in them and can result in a nicely productive atmosphere. The little things that keep people happy can add up to offer a large competitive advantage.

Finding Help for Your Office Space Set Up

Don’t go it alone when setting up an office. 2010 Office Furniture can provide expert guidance based on over four decades working with executives, managers, and purchasing agents in a variety of industries throughout Southern California.
