When was the last time you were told you looked like someone else? You were elated, insulted, or ambivalent, depending on the person in question. Bottom line, everyone likes looking attractive, being their own person, or being compared with someone thought to be tops in that field of comparison.
Compliments are not easy to come by, especially in an average environment. Those who care about the impression they make on others will go out of their way to make sure they look attractive in what they wear, their makeup, haircut, and maintain their h...
Change has been something every one of us has experienced in many ways in the last few years. The pandemic has interrupted our lives in blockbuster proportions. The stock market growth and fall have left many in a tailspin. Lack of supply and great have left the country paying high prices for goods and services. Geo-political unrest has added its share of change pressure on the planet.
Companies large and small are reacting to change in different ways. Some companies are pulling back and reacting to what the environment dictates. Other compani...
If you are an online shopper planning to design a conference room, buckle your seatbelt, because you are in for a wild ride.
It’s true—online shopping has its perks. Most of all, it’s convenient. However, convenience alone is not always the best approach to designing optimal conference rooms for your company. In fact, what you gain in convenience, you lose in reassurance of getting the best quality, fit, function, and color(s). If you can’t see it or touch it before you buy it, that leaves a lot of unanswered questions.
The conundrum when looking for cool modern office furniture is that the price for the great-quality stuff is very high. Lower-priced furniture in the marketplace is priced right but looks so…well…average. There is a reason for that.
It is tempting to make a boring product or offer repetitive service, the reasons being, it’s easy to do, requires limited engagement, fits the needs of the masses, and gets limited criticism or pushback, no stress. If one can make everyone happy because expectations are lower, then no one is unhappy, and we are all good.
Some might argue that the purpose of modern office furniture is to simply to provide personnel with an optimal location and the appropriate tools to do their work. Conversely, in recent years, many have sought out office furniture that is reflective of a modern art form.
It’s tempting to be boring…make boring products…or occupy a boring space. Boring is devoid of criticism. It meets spec. It causes no friction or tension. Everyone knows what to expect, and if a product meets the comparative mindset, everyone is happy.
And if everyone is happy, no one is unhappy.
The issue is this: People who are satisfied with being boring are fixed on just one solution. They are not expanding. They aren’t looking to create better solutions. They don’t want to upset the apple cart.
The people who don’t like our work are right; we can’t argue with that. If they don’t like our work, they don’t like our work. There are plenty of things one can find to dislike. I will share those with you in a moment.
However, if they were to say, “No one will like your work,” they are wrong. They can’t argue with the fact that we like our work, and someone else might like it, too.
Most people choose to buy office furniture simply because they need a place to work—but treating your office as just a place to work is a huge mistake. Here are seven reasons you should view your office as the investment it really is.
Everyone Else Is Wrong

Marcello fell in love with our Indiana executive desk and wanted it for his law office. He wanted something modern and trendy. Sara opted in on the Columbus reception desk because she wanted something simplistic and modern for holistic medical practice. Barr wanted an outstanding completely customized conference table for his upscale car dealership, something that would impress visitors.
People don’t believe what you believe. They don’t know what you know or have what you have. Everyone has thoughts swirling around in their heads. Everyone thinks they are right. When it comes to making things better, most everyone wants it and have their version of what that means and how to get it for themselves.
