Executive Office Furniture Types

Traditional Office Furniture

Tables, desks and chairs primarily form the core of office furniture. In today’s times, traditional wood or steel chairs have been replaced with plastic chairs or those made of fiber. Old school rectangle tables have been replaced with interesting asymmetrical or curved designs. Although several key components of traditional tables such as inbuilt drawers have persisted, modern reiterations of office furniture are designed with the objective of maximum space management. Today, employees share a common table that reduces expenditure and eliminates the need to buy separate desks for each and every employee.

Need for Special Executive Office Furniture

High level executives command a certain authority, which is reflected in the way they present themselves and their cabin furniture needs to exude the same dignity. Executives are very choosy when it comes to selecting cabin furniture. They pay immense attention to their choice of furniture, in terms of design, color and pattern. At times, a certain shade or type of curtain is selected just to compliment the executive office furniture.

The New Trend of Modular Office Furniture

Lately, a new trend has emerged as a ‘must have’ in offices. Modular office furniture has been the choice of office owners and the reasons are plenty. Modular is a form in which various components of furniture are separately made and then assembled to refurbish a room. Modular is a great option for someone who believes in doing more with less. Modular allows for excellent space management. Partitions are widely used in this type of furniture. They provide a fair amount of privacy to employees, which help achieving higher levels of productivity. As far as modular tables are concerned, they come in several innovative designs. While some prefer round tables, there is an increasing demand for unique wavy designs with stylish cuts. Modular furniture is a fantastic way to reflect your company’s personality without spending a lot of money on custom made furniture.

Dining Room Empire Style Furniture

Apart from the Napoleonic style, some of the decorative touches of this furniture are derived from the ancient Roman and Greek designs. So, while it comes to decorating your dining room with this type of furniture, you can also use the empire styled torches, vases, ram’s head, cornucopias and the heads of Greek gods.

If you are planning to decorate your dining room with the empire style furniture, always choose the styles that suit with your personal taste. Often the dining room is considered to be the centerpiece of any room and most of your guests will visit this place as most of the family dinners are conducted here.

So, while you are decorating your dining room with this furniture, then start decorating with your room so that the room matches perfectly with the furniture. Besides, not every furniture piece of this style will suit with your home style. Therefore, you should have a clear understanding of the right pieces that can complement your home as well as will convert the ordinary dining space into the heaven where you will love to spend time with your friends or family members. Additionally, learning well about the furniture type will also help you in purchasing the right things and not the duplicate ones.

Here is a simple guide that will help you in recognizing the furniture ranges of the empire style.

  • A masculine and hefty look
  • Excessive use of big and often badly cast metal gilts also known as the ormolu motifs
  • The wooden veneers are polished to the high sheen
  • Greco-Roman inspired classical decals
  • Wood back sitting arrangements with upholstered seats
  • Mirror back console dining tables

Tips for Home Storage

Create Storage in Outdoor Furniture

If you are thinking about purchasing new furniture for your deck or patio, why not utilize outdoor furniture that comes with integrated storage? Many outdoor benches are created with integrated storage, which would be great to store outdoor toys that you don’t want to have to bring inside each day.

Bed Sheet Storage

Use one of your pillowcases to store all of your matching sheet sets. This will save space in your linen closet and also keep you organized when it is time to change your bed sheets.

Outdoor Towel Rack

If you have a pool, you are likely always looking for somewhere to hang wet swimsuits and towels during the summer. Why not create an outdoor towel storage rack with simple PVC pipe from your local hardware store?

Use Shower Curtain Hooks in Your Closet for Your Purses

Are you always trying to navigate your way through the stash of purses on your closet floor? Why not use shower curtain hooks to hang all of your purses at eye level? This allows you to quickly see all of your purses and decide which one works with your outfit.

Use an Old CD Rack To Store Lids

What better way to keep track of your Tupperware lids than with an old CD rack in a drawer? Make sure to store the larger lids in the back and the smaller ones up front to keep everything in plain view.

Christmas Ornament Organization

Stop breaking old Christmas ornaments by storing them improperly. Glue small plastic cups to pieces of cardboard and stack them in storage bins. This way your ornaments will be neatly organized come next Christmas.

Repurpose Ice Cube Trays

Have you finally upgraded to an automatic icemaker, but still have ice cube trays lying around? Use them to store craft supplies, jewelry, or any other small items that seem to always be misplaced. Simply place the ice cube trays in drawers to keep them out of sight.

Tips to Help You Sort Out the Clutter in your Wardrobe

Give some time to the wardrobe

Are you getting scared of the jumble inside your wardrobe? Spend at least half an hour in a week to go through your closet. Keep the clothes that you are likely to wear in the closet. Bring out the remaining clothes. Now, decide which ones can be given to a younger cousin or donated for charity. Keep them separately. Throw out the rest.

Hey, don’t panic, you don’t have to do this every week. Once the population inside your closet thins down, you can reduce your sorting activity to once a month.

Use as a shoe rack

Bring out all the unnecessary stuff from the lowest shelf and keep the required things in some other shelf. Empty the bottom shelf. Make it home for the exotic shoes that you wear only to parties.

If something enters, something leaves

You have purchased a pink shrug, its time you decide if you still want your sister’s old piece. Yes, you are right; she was on a wardrobe Sydney organizing spree, before she gave you the shrug. Now, you decide, what you want to do with it.

Fat dresses and thin dresses

You admit it or not, all girls have two sets of clothes. While one set caters to a ‘fat you’, the other is for your thinner version. If you think that looking at the thin clothes will motivate you to enrol in a gym, then keep one within your eyesight. Stack the rest for donation.

How to arrange the clothes

Keep the things you frequently wear close by and the clothes that you rarely put on, at the back of the shelf.

Use a light

In case you own a walk in wardrobe; are you afraid to walk into it? Come on, there is no ghost inside it. Still, afraid? Get a light bulb and fix it somewhere inside. But, make sure that the light reaches all corners of the wardrobe.

Clothes in between

If you own a pair of jeans, that you think is neither dirty enough to be washed nor that clean to be kept inside the closet, keep it on a chair or on a separate table.

Arrange in an orderly way

Keep all similar things together. For example, the office shirts should be in a pile and jackets in a separate pile.

Coordinate and buy

When buying clothes; see if they match with the existing set of dresses, so that you don’t have to stand half dressed in front of the wardrobe, wondering what to match with what.
