Luxury office furniture

Sunday, 23 November 2008

luxury office furnitureWhat is so different about office furniture compared to other types of it? One's work place, the area where people unfortunately (or is it fortunately) spend the most of their time is equipped with such type of furniture. This is why one should equip his or her office in such a way that one feels comfortable in it but also in a way that the interior would stimulate one's working performances.

When choosing items of interior for your working place, you should accord to the rhythm of your working day and the position you're in. Boss' armchair is the indicator of one's status and also an indicator of how successful the whole organization is. Therefore a rich and prosperous decoration would indicate one's high position whereas a plain office table would reveal a rather low status of its owner.

So popular now are the president suits used as sets to equip top managers', bosses' and even country leaders' working places. It is believed that such a suit should remind one of emperor's parlors. Take for example the interiors of Versailles or Peterhof, where massive cabinets are furnished with baroque although there is no over the top feeling in the interior of those. Walls are covered with wooden panels. There are a few of strictly framed paintings on the walls. The table appearance is rich but at the same time also strict.  There is a sophisticated writing desk located in front of the table and a comfortable soft sofa for resting purposes as well as for conversations with the visitors. It is accompanied by a few lovely chairs for those who visit the owner of the cabinet. That's how parlors of great rulers Louis XIV and Peter the Great looked like. Luxurious but strict appearance of the cabinets helped them concentrate on finding vital solutions for their people and the world in whole.

Modern cabinets of top leaders follow the same traditions: those are equipped with luxurious furniture that helps them to demonstrate their riches with classy, often exclusive items of office equipment which require rare and expensive materials to be made and often uses hand labour. When choosing such sets it is believed that Italian and Spanish producers of elite office furniture are the most reliable ones.

Exactly this furniture that has all of the aspects that were spoken about is what Arcadia furniture collection, made by an Italian firm R.A. Mobili, consists of.  Table for the general director from Athena collection has a noble form with rounded pillars and front panel. Sophisticated shelves are decorated with veneer and have unique side panels made from leather, whereas the case itself is covered with marvelous black laminate. All cabinets provided by R.A. Mobili have a set of unique table accessories, covered with twenty three carat gilding and decorated with leather, alcantara and nubuck of the tones of the cabinet.

Another cabinet from Orion collection belongs to a new generation of cabinets by R.A. Mobili. The new generation is separated from the old ones because of the well-rounded forms of tables, desks and elements of glass shelves. The luxury of magnificent writing desk is highlighted by a complicated wooden installation on the front panel of the table and the tabletop where a few of rare kinds of wooden materials are combined. Orion cabinet includes a computer desk with a sliding stand for a monitor and a keyboard. There are a few items in the set: a great mirrored mini-bar, coffee tables of different sizes, armchairs for the visitors, and lots and lots of accessories in the same cabinet style. The sophisticated style is highlighted with mosaic made from veneer from different kinds of wooden materials and decorated with Swarovski crystals as well as metallic decorative elements covered with a thin layer of gilding.

By the way, it is said that Bill Gates' working place interior is a very humble one. Instead of old expensive paintings there are some of Bill's most important certificates and diplomas hanging on the walls. Instead of luxurious leather armchairs, the king of the PC software put up a small wooden bench. But the technology aspect of this ascetic room is of course at the top which would be expected of Bill Gates.

There is no doubt that a cabinet is a working place at first and the way it is decorated depends on the personality and wishes of its owner. Because, above all things, it is the owner who is supposed to feel comfortable in the cabinet and only then it is his guests and visitors.
