Top pick for reception seating

The Me, Myself & I armchair and sofa range has really impressed us for both its retro design and affordable pricing. This range looks equally effective in solid colours or two tone upholstery. Three armchairs are available each with a different back height plus matching sofa and coffee tables. Prices start from just £358* for the low back armchair and £441* for the two seater sofa.

The seating can be specified with your choice of stain on the legs. Choose from walnut, beech, light oak and maple

The versatile Me, Myself & I range looks fantastic in a wide range of fabrics. When choosing two tone upholstery the arms, back and seat piping are upholstered in the first colour and the seat cushion and buttons in the second colour which looks very effective as shown above.

*Prices are correct at time of writing 22/2/19. Prices exclude VAT.

The importance of service when buying office furniture

The provision of a quality pre & post sales service is just important as the furniture itself. Here are 5 questions to ask any potential office furniture supplier.

Can I evaluate chairs before I buy?
Office chairs need to accommodate many heights and weights, we provide chairs for evaluation and can recommend chairs for employees with health issues that may impact chair selection.

How can I be confident the desking or seating will fit in the space we have?
We can provide a free site survey and help you maximise your available space. Often, we can suggest space saving options and recommend furniture to suit your budget.

Will the furniture be supplied flat packed or fully assembled?
We are frequently asked to build flat packed furniture purchased from other office furniture suppliers. Often attractive internet deals will require self assembly – which is a large undertaking if you have ordered more than 10 chairs. As standard all the furniture we supply is assembled before delivery.

Will the furniture be positioned where we need it?
Some furniture suppliers only offer a doorstep delivery. We position your furniture where you need it.

How long is the furniture guaranteed for?
A chair which is guaranteed for 1 year will typically be suitable for light use. It’s a false economy to buy cheap office chairs and in our experience one or more important components fail quickly; spindles, action, back rests, castors, arms.

10 considerations when buying office chairs

Length of the chair guarantee
The majority of our quality office chairs are guaranteed for 5 years. This is an important consideration bearing in mind the constant use of an office chair.

Chair mechanism
Chairs need to be able to comfortably seat a range of users with multiple weights and heights. A quality mechanism and additional features such as Seat Slide and Inflatable Lumbar support ensure the chair can provide an ergonomic fit for any user. Seat Slide is a useful feature enabling the chair to be altered to accommodate users with a range of legs lengths. See our mechanism guide.

Arms
You can choose chairs with arms or without. Arm types include Fixed Arms, Adjustable Arms or Fold Back Arms (ideal to accommodate the preferences of different users). See the Rio task chair for an example of foldback chairs.

Height of back
Most task chairs are available with a medium or high back. Tall users in particular will benefit from a high backed task chair

Mesh or upholstered
This is really down to personal preference. An upholstered back may provide additional support but a mesh back provides ventilation.

Budget
Low cost chairs generally have less features that restrict adjustment. We have chairs to suit every budget – without compromising on length of guarantee and can often provide chairs so that employees can evaluate them prior to purchase.

Weight of users
If your chairs need to suit users of up to 150Kg (23 stones) you may want to consider the Posturemax chair range and if you have users of up to 200Kg (31 stones) you may want to consider the Posturemax 200.

Fabric choice
There is a myriad of choice and we can make suggestions and send you fabric samples to assist you. We can usually match existing furniture or desk screens if required.

Fully assembled chairs or flatpack
As standard all our chairs are supplied fully assembled prior to delivery and placed where you need them. We can supply boxed items as required.

24hr usage
In some work environments chairs are used for 24 hours. In these siuations we always recommend a chair designed and manufactured for 24 hour use such as Ergonomic Task 24 or Posturemax.

Bisley LateralFile Lockers – Power more. Protect more. Store more.

Five reasons why we think the updated Bisley LateralFile Lodges would be a great addition to your workplace

  1. They’re silent
     Soft-close hinges come as standard as do double-skin doors, which are not only more attractive and stronger, but they also help to dampen sound.
  2. They’re powerful
    Lockers become charging stations. Our LateralFile Lodges let users securely power up throughout the day. Plug in or connect via USB, no need to leave devices on desks or in corridors, and no excuses for flat batteries.
  3. They’re secure
    Electronic, barrel and key or RFID, whatever suits you, and your Facilities Management team. All locking solutions come with central controls and override options.
  4. They’re colourful
    With thousands or door and carcass colour combinations you can customise your workspace or co-ordinate it with your brand or to fit team personalities.
  5. They’re multitasking
    Choose double height for hanging coats or stowing cabin bags. Choose easy to access drawers at ground level to avoid the ungainly squat. Choose planter tops for relaxing greenery. Choose to use banks as space dividers for extra working areas. Choose adding counter tops and power for additional meeting places. Choose postal slots. Choose picture frames or business card holders. Choose whatever works for your business.Take a closer look:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6CAoTPwSpg
