If you’re anything like me, I love finding new ways to design my spaces – at home and in the office! With these 8 simple tips, you can re-decorate your workspace just in time for the holidays.

1. Add a Pop of Color

With HON’s latest fabric refresh, there are hundreds of options from which to choose that can bring life into your office this winter (my personal favorite is the Polka – Very Berry)! HON has created inspirational color palettes to make it easy to envision the right color scheme for your space. Have fun with it! Be BOLD and add patterns, or select colors that fit the season. There is no better way to make a statement to your customers, catch the attention of your guests or increase employee morale around the office than by adding a pop of color!

2. Add Whiteboards to Foster Creativity & Collaboration

Generally, we associate whiteboards with education settings, but they are also used in office spaces to foster creativity and collaboration. For example, we use whiteboards a lot in my department to give our sales team a place to brainstorm ideas, write daily goals, or even inspire each other with inspirational quotes of the week! In my experience, whiteboards can help keep people focused, allow them to collaborate with one another, and also boost productivity and creativity. To make it really easy to add to your space, HON offers both wall-mounted whiteboards and mobile whiteboards. You can even get creative and use glass stacker panels as a writing surface!

3. Create Alternative Places to Sit

Creating additional seating could be as simple as placing a cushion on your credenza or pedestal. This allows you to have short impromptu meetings right at your work space.  It’s an inexpensive way to not only create another option for seating, but also allows you to decorate your space with more fun fabrics!

4. Go Modular!

With HON’s full offering, there are so many options to choose from. Why not mix things up? HON’s soft seating line, Flock, allows you to connect multiple lounge seats together and reconfigure them in multiple designs. Plus, you can add Flock minis that can double as additional seating or workspaces when paired with the new laminate toppers! Another great product line for going modular is Voi desking with Accelerate workstations. Not only can you add a modern look with the open o-legs, but you can also create 120° workstation pods. How cool is the layout below!?

If you took all of the different table lines that manufacturers had to offer and lined them up end to end, I would venture to say you could reach the moon and back more than a few times. The great news is that you only need one table line when it comes to finding the perfect fit for your office – the new Build table series from HON.

The Building Blocks of a Great Table:

Adaptability
In a society where millennials are quickly becoming the prevailing majority in the workforce, you need a table that will fit the work style of the millennial, the baby boomer, and something for when the two come together. Here are just four different ways you can use Build™ tables in today’s workplace:

  1. Commons: Group a few together in the commons area for impromptu one-on-one meetings, group discussions, and everything in between.
  2. Breakout: Integrate them into workstation areas to give employees a breakout meeting area without having to completely relocate.
  3. Training: Use them in a training room, and rearrange as needed to accommodate any size group or any type of training.
  4. Focused: Take advantage of unused nooks and smaller spaces in the office to give employees the opportunity to find a little quiet time.

Build tables are a great fit for any commons area

Aesthetic
One of the oldest sayings in the book is that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. That’s equally true for what your office furniture says about you to your employees and visitors alike. Odds are, you’re going to want something that has a classic look without being overly outdated or staid.

Build™ offers not only 26 standard laminate options and 14 edge options, but also two different leg finishes, casters or glides and five unique and interchangeable table top shapes.

Feeling traditional? Pair a couple of rectangular tables in a classic woodgrain finish together for a mobile conference room. Want something a little more unique? Arrange six of the new kite tables in Pomegranate or Blue Agave laminate for a floral-inspired group setting.

Attention to Detail
Like all HON products, Build™ was designed with the end user in mind. Inspired by practicality, HON created a table that could be used alone, or mixed and matched with others to create a space that is completely new. It includes height adjustability from 25” to 34” so that it fits just right for any individual. And of course, it’s backed by the HON Full Lifetime Warranty, so you can rest easy knowing that you and your purchase are covered.

Build Tables work in any learning or commercial space

For Learning Spaces
A common trend in today’s learning environment is the shared classroom. Many teachers and professors are in and out for different classes, and they need to be able to configure the space in a way that works with their teaching style. Build is lightweight, mobile and energizing! With 5 different table shapes, the design capabilities are endless. Not only is this product functional, it comes in all kinds of bright colors to keep the energy in the environment high.

For Anywhere Else!
Build’s five unique shapes and large range of sizes allow the tables to fit anywhere. Whether it be a touchdown area in an open office, or a collaborative space to bounce ideas off your coworkers, Build has it covered. Using the classic rectangle table is perfect for training applications, or you can spice it up with shapes like Wisp, Ribbon or Kite to get a fresh look! You have complete control over your area and how you want to incorporate your style. Whatever setting you need to be productive, Build sets the foundation.

Build tables can be easily reconfigured for any learning space or work environment
