Gone are the days when office design was limited to only a few fabric or laminate color options. Today, office design trends are incorporating two-tone laminate combinations and mixed materials to help add a modern and fresh look to the workplace. For example, one laminate color can be used on a worksurface while another laminate color is used on the storage, or one laminate color can be used on the casing of your storage while a different color adds dimension on the drawer fronts. Integrating frosted glass, metal and other mixed materials into overhead storage and support legs of office furniture is another way to update your space.
HON offers 8 woodgrain laminates, including the recently introduced Mocha, Pinnacle, and Cognac. Below are a few ways you can integrate these laminate colors and mixed materials into your workspace for a more modern aesthetic.
Mocha provides a rich, sophisticated color that can provide a great contrast to a white laminate on a worksurface or storage. Try adding frosted glass to the wall storage for a fun twist on the classic private office.
Pinnacle is a modern laminate color that also pairs well with lighter worksurfaces and metal materials, allowing metal surfaces to “pop.
Cognac offers a refreshed look on the traditional cherry color palette that can help liven up a workspace, especially when paired with a lighter worksurface color option.
