Your office decor speaks volumes about who you are and your place in society. If you’re an executive, having an office that matches your status isn’t just about vanity, but about projecting the kind of image that can be conducive to business and your personal brand.
Don’t be afraid to experiment- you don’t have to hang on to a certain look because it’s considered the norm. Go ahead and choose unusual pieces which will create a visually pleasing, slick, glam look while still being functional.
The truth is, luxurious, high-end furniture and accessories are superior in design, style, and functionality, always having fabrics, colors and features not found in regular brands.
Here are some ideas for furniture that can really spruce up your executive office and project the right image for you.
It’s amazing when you realize that every part of the Embody chair from Herman Miller has been designed to serve a purpose towards better health. Herman Miller is an American company with decades of experience and with many awards to their renowned name. Their Embody chair is luxurious yet purposeful, and the backrest is designed like the human back, aligning with its natural curve.
Herman Miller believes that furniture has to prove itself – it has to be more beautiful, more cleverly put together, come with more features and be more comfortable than other chairs. This amazing chair has got everything going for it – comfort, design, back support, ergonomics and good looks – everything an executive needs. A health-positive chair like the Embody has what is known as the Pixelated Support System, making the chair super comfy.
Whatever your height, adjust the seat depth to fit your thigh length. In fact, the chair is fully adjustable – every part can be adjusted to suit the person sitting in it. Sit in an upright posture or a reclined position with the help of the Backfit Adjustment and Tilt Limiter.
Jon Muller from Ergonomic Trends summarized the Embody Chair best in his review of this office chair:
“In contrast to many chairs that look like they are used by executives, this chair is truly meant for VIPs who can afford it. While this chair provides much more quality and comfort than its cheaper alternatives, the price (which is its greatest disadvantage) may be too expensive for average working people.”
