When was the last time you were told you looked like someone else? Depending on the person in question, you were elated, insulted, or ambivalent. 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, applying makeup, haircuts, and personal health and hygiene.
The same philosophy applies to office makeup, health, and hygiene. Whether in a modern conference room, an executive office suite, or especially a modern reception area, everyone likes to be noticed for their work, creativity, and selection in office design. To get compliments for modern office design, one must focus on not being part of the crowd.
Uniforms are designed to make everyone look alike, so anyone can tell quickly that they are part of the same team. Conversely, the opposite is true with modern office design. When it comes to business, the focus is on differentiation. The question we live by is how I can look, smell and taste differently from my competitor. While that question is an active ingredient in every business, why are so many companies willing to look alike? Why are so many companies willing to put their modern office furniture in a cart and have it shipped without caring that everyone else looks the same?
At 90 Degree Office Concepts, we specialize in taking the legwork out of companies looking for that unique, mind-blowing modern conference table with a matching credenza, that inspiring reception desk for their lobby, or that super cool executive desk. The idea is to help each company find office furniture that matches their company’s personality.
Some companies’ personality leans more toward the conservative side, while others are drawn by the more edgy designs. At 90 Degree Office Concepts, we believe modern office furniture should mirror the company projected image. If you are a tech company born to have new ideas or an advertising company where creativity is a must, you must look the part. However, if your company needs to reflect safety, trust, and stability, although modern, we can tone down the edge. With this article, we want a chance to speak to our friends that have a passion for the edgy modern office style.

Why choose edgy modern office furniture?
Not all modern office furniture is edgy, and not all edgy office furniture is modern. Modern office furniture attracts attention. Edgy office furniture garners a lot of compliments. Edgy modern office furniture is not for every company. Some companies don’t have the vibe to pull it off properly.
Sometimes, a simple color change can lower the visual impact of your modern reception desk or conference table. Other times a material change can reduce the striking effect of your furniture. The good news is that working with 90 Degree Office Concepts, you have a lot of design tools at your disposal to create the look best suited for you.
