Wooden Office Furniture – A Closer Look

A Closer Look at Wooden Office Furniture

We’ve certainly come a long way from the first stone furniture, which was developed as early as 3100 B.C. In modern times, wooden furniture is far more common than stone of course, and with good reason. Today, we’ll explore the reasons why wooden office furniture is so widely used, delve into its affordability and practicality, and also look at how you can go about buying your next piece of wooden furniture for the office. The article should cover any questions you may have before making any kind of purchasing decision. 

Why Wooden Furniture is the Most Widely Used

Wooden furniture is the order of the day in 2020, as a result of its ease of use and affordability. Generally lighter than steel or glass alternatives, wood furniture allows for additional customisation options when it comes to refreshing the workspace. Generally lighter than steel or glass alternatives, you’re likely to find wooden furniture in offices of all shapes and sizes, ranging from startups, SMEs and all the way through to corporates too. 

Affordability of Wooden Office Furniture

Wooden furniture also tends to be more affordable than some of the material alternatives, and is easier to source locally as well. The price can however be affected by the type of wood, especially if it is solid wood. Keep in mind that bespoke options, especially those that are handmade, tend to have higher prices, albeit that it gives you a unique piece of furniture that can give the office its own dynamic sense of class or style. Many offices in Cape Town are opting for custom made wooden desks and surfaces, especially those used for hotdesking. This is a trend that may start to trickle into other parts of the country in the new year as well. 

Wooden Furniture Looks Good and Is Practical

Wooden furniture is great because it doesn’t only look good, but it’s practical as well. Wood is generally durable, designed to handle any wear and tear or excessive use. There are also some great options available to customise the look of your office when choosing this type of furniture. Going for an option like a weathered look gives you a unique style and feel to the office. Wood is also easy to paint, which could be a nice side-project for team building, with members of the team getting to customise their own desks, to add a flavour of fun to the office in the process.
