Productivity is key for any piece of office furniture. White laminates provide a clean, blank work space that can spur creativity for the user.
It is refreshing and brings brightness. Previously shunned due to its strong reflective quality, white is becoming a popular option for the office. White is the sum of all colors and has no negative connotations. It can be used as both a main color and a contrast color. White creates room and size, brightens up and allows room to breath. It lends exclusivity and drama to spaces or objects. Black against a white background delineates and emphasizes form and design.
It may not be right for everyone, but more and more, white has become a color of choice in office design. What do you think? Are you ready for a white desk?
It’s the new look of office design, with storage built across one side, and plenty of desk or table room on the other. It’s more efficient, ergonomic and works better with technology. Workspace Solutions has just added the new Keel line from Abco that is designed to fit today’s office styles. Check out Abco on our website here. Check out the Keel video:

Don’t take this sitting down! In fact, do yourself a favor and stand up to read this post. The May 2009 issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise published the results of a study of over 17,000 adults over 12 years revealed that those who sit all day at their jobs are at greater risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Exercise is great, but there appears to be little you can do to undo the effects of sitting down eight hours a day at your desk, unless you stop sitting. Then, how do you get your work done? Easy, with a stand up desk.
Workspace Solutions has some great ideas for a stand up desk arrangement. One of their companies, Humanscale, offers a desk that easily adjusts up and down. Combine this with a monitor arm for your computer screen, and with a simple adjustment, you can work standing up, or sitting down.

Coming this fall to Workspace Solutions, Epic, from National, is loaded with layered surfaces and storage and organization tools such as pull out trays ideal for project work and stackers.

Every building has walls and sometimes what to do with them may be a tough decision. Say hello to Exhibit™, the latest line from National Furniture, and now available at Workspace Solutions. It removes barriers and transforms the walls into purposeful design elements offering a variety of solutions for all workplace, collaborative and social environments. Exhibit’s efficient use of wall space and various inserts, such as slat walls and work tools, marker boards and tack boards, serve as an organizational coach, brainstormer or an impromptu art gallery. Exhibit lets the walls do the “heavy lifting” creating a lighter, airier aesthetic while providing easy access to electrical and data. Check out the video, then talk to us about putting your walls to work for you.
The walls are lower, and collaboration level is higher with “Involve,” a new work station line from Allsteel that is now available at Workspace Solutions. The lowered heights of “Involve” work stations filter natural light and air into every area of a larger room. “Involve” was developed to support collaboration as it happens spontaneously at each individual workstation. If you’re looking for the latest in desks or workstations, count on Workspace Solutions to offer it. This video shows off “Involve” as well as some other new cool ideas from Allsteel.
