Communal workspaces have become increasingly popular for people leaving the 9 to 5 work life for the freedom of contract employment, or offices trying to create a more collaborative environment for current employees. This has lead to a boost in the popularity of coworking office spaces, coffee shops with a more business-friendly vibe, and other communal work areas in hotels and shopping center. As these businesses furnish their spaces, they’ve run into the problem that big box retail often fails to cater to individual needs. Custom design from Wehrli Furniture is the solution to that ever-popular problem.
Why Choose Custom Design
Accommodating various needs and desires can be difficult when your choices are limited. That’s why custom design is so incredible. We can help navigate the problems you’ve encountered with big box retail furniture stores and create the perfect solution. You don’t need to be limited by what you see in catalogs, we can help you dream up the ideal piece or pieces of furniture and execute that plan smoothly and efficiently. Keeping your budget intact is important to us which is why we can offer several material options to create your custom design piece with.
Modular Bench Upgrade
We recently had the privilege of creating a unique piece for a downtown office. Their communal workspace had tables and chairs but there was an opportunity to take advantage of existing space and create more areas for their employees to work and collaborate more comfortably. With ample space near the walls, radiators, and windows, we created the perfect addition to their workspace. We built a 70-foot long bench specifically designed to conform to the wall and radiators. With seven padded benches to comfortably lounge on, there is plenty of space to work individually or in a team setting.
We built the bench and tables with high-pressure laminate, which is a similar color to the existing tables in the office. The bench seats are upholstered with blue, industrial-strength vinyl to withstand high levels of use and bring a pop of color to the work environment. To ensure the tables would fit perfectly, our team took onsite measurements, created a drawing of the piece, and installed it after completion. This modular bench project was the perfect upgrade to encourage more comfortable individual and communal work in this downtown office. Custom design is often the best solution to the common dilemma of not having enough space for your employees.
