• Bespoke furniture vital for coworking success

        • As the working world evolves and more professionals move away from the rigours of 9-5 work in drab and dull offices, there is now increasing demand for communal working spaces. Coworking offers an office environment for small businesses and self-employed people to operate within their own space whilst, maintaining the exciting buzz of working in a larger business setting. Subsequently, over the last few years, there has been a 190 per cent rise in office space dedicated to coworking in central London in 2017.

          In order to create a vibrant and attractive proposition to companies looking to benefit from coworking environments, Contract Furniture Group believes bespoke furniture should be central to the design process. To ensure offices offer ideal spaces for everyone using them, the firm champions the need for minor-yet-noticeable variations to furniture that creates a recognisable theme with individualistic aspects. Subtle changes to the furniture’s fabrics, colours and features, along with flexible and versatile pieces, help carry a consistent theme throughout the space, whilst still creating a feeling of individuality that makes businesses feel unique and not lost in a crowd.

          Richard Bellamy, Managing Director of Contract Furniture Group said, “having the best possible working environment is important for any business, but it can be difficult to find the right balance when so many different types of people and companies will be using the same space. The interior of coworking spaces needs to follow coherent design whilst ensuring people who use it feel like they are still in their own business space. To successfully do so, each office needs an individual design with tailored furniture pieces that match the intended vision. Only with bespoke options, perfectly matching the colours, patterns and theme of the area will shared spaces be able to create this consistent design. With our fully customisable furniture, we are equipping offices and designers with the ability to implement any interior they need.”

          Contract Furniture Group offers a wide variety of furniture for a range of venues and is expecting to increase its offering with the addition of 250 products throughout 2019.
