Spring is the time for fresh starts and new projects, so what better time to brighten the atmosphere in and around your office! If you were designing a space that was inspired by the spring season, what color palette would you use and what products would you include? We asked our designers to take part in a scavenger hunt for their favorite spring-inspired products, and the responses are so much fun!
AN OFFICE FAVORITE
We heard a few ideas get passed around the office – Haworth’s BuzziSpace BuzziFalls acoustic panels are a great addition to any room. Just look how awesome these designs are!
These products ooze Spring! Bright colors, interesting patterns, and organic shapes are a good way to inject some whimsy into your office. Check out some of our designers’ favorite products below!
Dominique, one of our senior designers, loves a few fun products, the first being these super fun MergeWorks EchoDeco Acoustic Wall Panels. Not only are these hanging panels a cost-effective way to cover walls or divide space, but they come in some pretty inspiring designs! The best part – they’re removable! Change them out per season or incorporate a design that lasts year-round. Whatever the case, our designers are happy to help you specify what would best suit your space. These panels definitely give you flexible options to spruce up a workplace.
The colors of Dauphin’s Atelier 2 is also a great way to incorporate color into a workplace! The Atelier 2 is a soft seating program that brings functional design together with privacy to create dynamic spaces for meetings, eating or focusing. It can also be combined with a connecting wall to create huddle stations and can be specified with surface mount power units that allow users to charge their devices. Although Dauphin offers some bright color options, Dominique loves the contrasting blue and yellow combination.
Kristyn’s Spring favorite, The Leaf Lamp, is an ambient and acoustic lighting solution that mimics the organic designs found in nature and is made entirely of natural materials. Offering flameproof and sound-absorbing qualities, the felt leaves come in a rainbow of monochromatic colors (or you can mix it up and design your own!). Hang a pendant or “plant” some trees – either way, pulling the outdoors in is a great way to spruce up a workplace that leaves employees feeling rejuvenated. (See what we did there?)
Stacy loves the OFS Riff Table. This meeting table expands from the conference room into the private office, open plan, or game room. Place a table and benches together and instantly transform a space into an interesting collaboration or dining area (picnic-table-style!). You can also add a net and paddles to turn the Riff Table into a regulation-size Tennis Table, creating a playful atmosphere!
Kick back with this Margaritaville Outdoor Surfboard Bar. This is such a cool way to make an outdoor space more fun. Besides throwing one of these bad boys in your backyard, let’s face it… fun pieces are trending in the workplace. Many companies are now creating indoor and outdoor areas for employees to socialize. Think juice bars or smoothie stations! (Fun fact: We throw a Summer BBQ outside of our building every year!)
How about some sleek options? The Davis Ginkgo Wire series is perfect for minimalists. The Ginkgo Wire collection is an indoor/outdoor line constructed of solid steel rods, and includes chairs, barstools, lounge seating, and tables. Our designer, Rachel, loves this seating option that comes in multiple colors! This one is a huge hit among A&D firms.
Rachel also loves Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year, Living Coral! This color can be incorporated in fun ways to bring a fresh vibe to any space!
