    What to Do When People Keep Borrowing Your Desk Chair People can feel incredibly proprietary when it comes to workplace items that are owned by the company, but which they nonetheless consider to be “theirs.” This is especially true of the office chair, and it may be due largely to the fact that many office chairs can be difficult to adjust. People take them, adjust them to suit their specific needs, and then return them that way – if they return them at all. If you’re sick and tired of having to go on a mission to find and rescue your office chair time after time, there are a few…

    Everyone, everywhere, feels the need to personalize their office. Most people exercise a modicum of restraint, and do it tastefully. Others just don’t get it – it’s possible for an office to be personalized to the extent that at best, it makes the people around you very uncomfortable, or at worst, it makes you look mentally unstable. This isn’t a fully inclusive list, but the following are some of the items that you really shouldn’t have on your desk, your office bookshelves, or for that matter, anywhere in your office that they might be visible.

    Materials: 3 Billy bookcases and a Gnedby shelving unit, bits of an Akurum kitchen unit My wife wanted a built in ‘library’ bookcase in our new living room, and trusted my woodworking skills to hack IKEA units to do the job. I managed to squeeze 3 BILLY bookcases and a GNEDBY CD tower into the space, having to cut down the edges of the CD tower and a bookcase on a 45° angle, I then used the redundant side of an AKURUM pantry unit (suitably trimmed to size) as the new vertical panel. Once the bookcases were ‘as one’ I trimmed the edges and faces with 1×2 inch pine…

    Materials: Bygel Utility Cart, Ekby Stilig Bracket. OPTIONAL: White Olov table legs, Franklin bar stool, Gerton Table Top, LÄMPLIG chopping board, small Pluggis containers I have a very awkward space between my kitchen and living room with no distinct area for a table, kitchen cart or shelving unit. So I decided to make my own all-in-one that provided storage for dishes and silverware, a place to eat and additional space for future kids and/or guests to sit. In the end I came up with this breakfast bar/utility cart. - First, cut a GERTON table top in half lengthwise. We live in NYC so I…

Start building the Hemnes nightstand but stop after completing Step 10. Step 11 is where you start building the drawer, so you’ll want to dress up your drawer front prior to building the full drawer. 2. Iron your fabric to get out any wrinkles. 3. Lay out your fabric and cut out a piece large enough to cover the front of the drawer face and the sides. 4. Cut out the…
  • LACK TV Unit improved/completed

    16 Dec 2014 | 11:34 am
    I had this LACK tv unit for 49 euros in Germany and needed more space and closed/secured space (because of children). So I decided to improve it with two LACK tables (each 5 or 10 Euro) and a BESTA Board (same colour). I also made out of cheap wood the frame for the enclosure of the spaces, so that I can hide stuff there and cover it with some fabric. This is the result: I used two tabletops for the left side and the board where the AV-receiver is situated. I had the table legs cut like I wanted it in a shop, and used the left overs (I only needed 4 for the two tables) for the dark-brown…

    Materials: Besta Cabinet base, with MDF top upholstered by caravan upholstery shop and Vassbo style doors. This is a really functional, space saving and comfortable area. Its ideal for socialising, eating, entertaining and working. Everyone loves the booth seat in a restaurant, so why not have that level of comfort at home! Additional storage underneath the seating makes use of otherwise un-utilised space. Love it and looking forward to the next Ikea hack.

  • Plugged-In Furniture - What's Past Is Prologue

    8 Oct 2014 | 6:22 am
    As furniture becomes more and more tech-driven (e.g., USB ports, chargers, coolers, etc.) we can sometimes forget that claims to advancements in the basic sofa have been around for some time. Today's Westlaw's "Headnote of the Day" e-mail contained the case headnote "Sitting on a couch is not exercise." This got my attention and warranted a deeper look.The headnote comes from Stauffer Laboratories, Inc. v. F.T.C., 343 F.2d 75 (9th Cir. 1965). In Stauffer, the Ninth Circuit was asked to review a preliminary injunction directing Stauffer Labs and its principal officer from making claims that…

    15 Dec 2014 | 7:10 am
    5 Ways Chavari Chairs Offer Comfort and Style A popular rental seating option, a Chiavari chair is easily recognizable by its characteristic spindle frame construction. It showcases a ladder-like back design with a series of short, vertical spindles on the upper backrest. There is also a double row of spindles on the chair’s legs as an added design feature. A Brief History In 1807, a cabinetmaker by the name of Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi, who hailed from a town on the northwestern coast of Italy called Chiavari, came up with the chair’s design.

    Banquet Seating Options That Will Give Your Venue an Edge Over the Competition There is one element that is necessary for any type of event to succeed: comfortable seating. Lavish decorations, meticulously planned menus executed to perfection, wonderful music – all these and other event elements can be easily overshadowed by uncomfortable seating. It’s difficult to have a fun and enjoyable time when one is not properly supported by an ergonomically designed chair. This is especially true for events where guests remain seated most of the time. From banquet chairs to different kinds of…

    Taking Care Of Your Outdoor Furniture This Winter The worst part of the winter season is that as it gets colder, it’s hard to enjoy your restaurant’s outdoor furniture often. Colder weather also means that you will need to protect and preserve your furniture to reuse it for next year. Wicker Furniture To keep your wicker outdoor furniture in pristine condition during the winter, it is usually best to put it away. Putting it away can prevent over-drying and even molding. Make sure that your furniture is clean first. By cleaning, you will preserve the colors and materials. Any…

    With Black Friday approaching, everyone is looking for the best deals, online or in the “real world”.  For many people, this means the first places they are going to shop online are the “big box” retailers like WallyWorld – or in our market, OfficeDepot, OfficeMax, Staples and other global corporate big-dogs. The most likely reasons people choose impersonal mega-stores over “Mom and Pop”: price and selection. Are you sure you are really getting what you need or want at the lowest possible price? Or is this just one of those things that sounds…

    Unless you’re a very big wheel in a major corporation, chances are, you don’t have a whole lot of office space – that is, if you have an office at all. Only about 32% of professionals now have “rooms of their own,” and the size of the average manager’s office has shrunk by over 20% since the 1990s; the average middle manager’s office comes in at a piddling 120 square feet, according to the International Facility Management Association, a professional group operating out of Houston.

  • Fun With Filing

    14 Nov 2014 | 1:06 pm
    All right, the title’s a misnomer – no one’s ever really going to have fun with filing. Another thing that isn’t fun, though, is not being able to find an important document when you need it. Filing is the task no one ever wants to do, and yet it’s one of the most important jobs in the office. Get Organized Leaving documents in a pile on your desk is simply sloppy, and wasting time looking for a file when a little organization would have made it easy to find is counterproductive. Plus, it makes you look bad. It can seem overwhelming, dealing with all the paper you have to handle…
