Impact Props and Rentals

Little Goblins - Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Famous and Stylish Rentals! 

There's more to us than the items for sale in our showroom…

Sometimes making the purchase doesn't make sense and we completely understand. That's why we offer furniture rentals and we're proud to say we work with any budget and setting. 

We are proud to say that our very own Impact Props is one of Vancouver's leading prop rental houses. When you need to create a set and transport viewers into the world of your characters, buying furniture isn't practical. Renting is your answer. Our staff are experienced and knowledgeable and can help you pick the best pieces that will help your scenes come to life. 

We've loved being a part of so many wonderful television shows and films including Fringe, Supernatural, Planet of the Apes and Man of Steel, to name a few! Here is just a small sampling of the set design teams we've worked with before:

But our rentals aren't limited to props for a set. We know that one of the biggest expenses of setting up an office is the furniture purchases. We also offer rentals to be used in commercial and retails spaces so you can start your business with financial piece of mind. We have a variety of stylish pieces for you to choose from and when you are ready, our associates can help you transition your office decor to your own, purchased furniture. 

Design, style and creativity are never out of your reach at Impact Furniture and Props. Contact us today or visit our showroom to speak with our design-savvy associates to start creating your perfect space for work or film!

Make the Most of Your Office in 2014

Little Goblins - Monday, January 20, 2014

It’s a new year and what better time than to revamp your office and create a healthy, productive and Eco-conscious space?!

With just a few tweaks to your office design, you can accomplish all these things and Impact Office has got everything you need! Let’s begin with…

Healthy

A healthy employee is a happier, more productive employee. Design your office to include ergonomic seating in order to avoid repetitive strain injuries and workers on sick leave. Of course, some employees are more sensitive to sitting for eight hours of the day no matter how complex their seating is. Our electric sit-stand desks (featured in last month’s blog post) are ideal to allow your employees to work comfortably, whether they are seated or standing or whatever is in between!

Seating and desks are not the only office accessories that can keep your employees healthy though. Monitor arms are the ideal accessories to allow one to adjust the screens to the perfect alignment according to any individual’s needs. Foot rests are ideal for relieving back pressure and our foot machines can help employees maintain good circulation by encouraging movement and massaging the feet!

Productive

How can furniture make an office more productive? The secret is in the style and arrangement of designated spaces. Sleek modern desk systems such as the Evolve Benching Solutions or Bridges 2 allow for employees to work closely together and encourage collaboration, while still giving workers personal spaces to get work done without distraction. Vice Versa Bridges is another design that can help keep teams close together and maximize space in the office.

If you’re office doesn’t already have designated lounge areas, then perhaps space conscious desk systems will help make room. Lounge chairs and coffee tables are a great addition to the office, not just for customers and guests but also for your employees.

Eco-Conscious

If you want to reduce your impact on the environment, there are three R’s that every one should aim to live by: reduce, reuse and recycle! Impact Office may not able to help you implement recycling programs or digital IT projects to leave paper behind but we can offer you a selection of pre-owned furniture!

Lastly, and this is the only product we don’t have, add greenery to your office with plants! Plants can help clean the air, bring nature indoors and create a relaxed atmosphere where your employees can thrive. Make 2014 the year your office design contributes to your business magic!

Design Focus: Work Lounges & Coffee Shop Vibes

Little Goblins - Friday, November 29, 2013

Design a productive and relaxed atmosphere!

Don’t overlook your office and create spaces that will inspire…

When you run a business, productivity matters. How much does your office design affect productivity? You may or may not be surprised to know that it can majorly affect the productivity and creativity of your employees! When you spend the majority of every day driving to the same building, walking to the same desk, staring at the same computer, surrounded by the same grey desk and same neutral walls, and the same bland colour palette (an office characteristic that is all too common), you’re bound to find your thoughts running in the same uninspired circles.

There are many design tactics you can use to break that visual and mental pattern. Today we’re focusing on creating work lounges and that coffee shop atmosphere.

No matter how beautiful your desk space is, there will be times when a change of scenery is in order. Encourage your employees to move away from their desk and interact with co-workers by creating an office lounge. A lounge is defined as a public room or space in which to sit and relax. By introducing that coffee shop atmosphere into your office, you will find your employees happier to come to the office, inspired to have beautiful spaces to spend their days, more open to interacting and sharing ideas and enjoying their jobs. Happy employees make for a successful business after all!

Here are our top 5 looks to help you create the perfect look for your inspired lounge and to bring in those coffee shop vibes:

Play with table heights and materials to bring visual interest to the room. Use colour and comfortable seating and light up the room artwork and stay away from harsh lighting. Maybe even add some soft background music? The sky is the limit when it comes to create a new space! 

Visit our showroom to learn more about these products and how you can customize them to create the perfect design scheme for your office lounge!
