Made in Canada: 5 Featured Office Chairs

Little Goblins - Sunday, June 26, 2016

Discover five chairs for your workplace that are proudly made in Canada.

As a Vancouver owned and operated business, we are proud of the Canadian-made products that we carry. From office chairs, to desks and workplace accessories, our storeroom is full of quality pieces of office furniture that have been made in Canada. 

Today we are shining a light on a group of five office chairs that are all made in Canada, each ready to fit the different requirements of your workplace. The below seating solutions range from lounge chairs for your reception area, to versatile boardroom seating, to easy-to-store classroom chairs.

1. Reception Seating

There can be a lot of pressure in choosing the right seating solution for your reception or waiting room area. After all, it is the first space within your office that guests or clients will see when they come to visit. 

Citi Square is our most popular reception seating line. It has a modern look and feel and can be ordered in multiple colours. 

2. Guest Seating

When your guests visit your office, you want them to feel as comfortable as possible. 

The Ergo Bex Mesh Guest Chair is an extremely well-built, ergonomic chair that is both comfortable and durable. Available in a trendy colour-blocked design of black and camel, this chair will help your guests feel right at home. 

3. Boardroom Seating

Striking the right balance for the chairs in your boardroom can be tough. You want comfortable seating for those longer meetings, but perhaps you don't have the space for larger chairs. 

The Loover is a great compromise between comfort and space. It is the first chair to feature the Weight Sensing Synchro-Tilter, which requires no tilt tension adjustments, so it is always set right for everyone. 

4. Ergonomic Seating

If you're experiencing pain or discomfort due to an uncomfortable desk chair, opting for an ergonomic solution can help you find the proper balance between fit and function

The Triumph is a fully adjustable ergonomic chair, complete with a multi-tilter functionality and excellent lumbar support. It is designed to help keep you comfortable even after many hours of use.

5. Classroom Seating

As one of Canada's most popular commercial grade stacking chairs, the Duet Stacking Chair is available with or without arms and in an array of colours. This line of chairs is very durable and has the convenience factor of being stackable for easy storage.

Office Health: The Standing Solution

Little Goblins - Thursday, June 04, 2015

British health experts strongly urge office workers to stand for at least two hours of every workday.

While it's not news that siting for prolonged periods of time is bad for your health, the idea that daily activity outside of the office cannot offset these health risks is. 

In a recent article published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, a panel of health experts have stated that even if you are active before or after work, you may still be at risk of developing the associated health risks of sitting for long periods of time, such as heart disease, obesity, cancer and early mortality rates. In an effort to reduce these office related health risks, the panel has also provided a set of guidelines to help counteract the negative effects of sitting for prolonged periods of time. The guidelines include encouraging office workers to try to be on their feet for at least two hours of the workday, eventually leading up to four hours. More than ever, it is crucial that workplaces begin to actively encourage their employees to stand for a portion of their office hours. 

Learn more about the expert advice provided in the guidelines by reading the following article from The Vancouver Sun: Don't take a seat: Panel says workers should stand for about 2 hours a day, even with exercise.

Frightening though the health risks may be, there are a few things that every office can do to assist in preventing their employees from being at risk of the aforementioned health conditions. With the initiative and leadership of office management, solutions as simple as walking meetings can help employees reach that two hour per day minimum of standing time. The most effective way to get your office standing, however, is to offer the option of standing throughout the workday. Ideally, each employee would have the option to stand at a time that works best with their schedule and physical needs. The perfect solution for this is, of course, an adjustable desk.

Height adjustable desks and electric sit stand workstations offer every office worker the choice of working while sitting or standing, with the option of adjusting the desk throughout the day. The Electric Sit Stand Desks, in particular, are easily adjustable and offer the choice of adjusting one's desk multiple times a day to the user's content.

Browse our entire selection of height adjustable tables, desks and workstations. For more information or assistance in choosing the right adjustable tables for your office space, please contact us and our team would be happy to help!
