If you’ve had the same office furniture for years now and you want to change it, you have the option of reupholstery instead of just getting new furniture. Giving your office a new fresh design will uplift the morale of your employees and will give your customers a more welcoming feeling.

Here are some commercial upholstery ideas you can used in your office.

1. Office Chairs

A good place to start is with the office chairs. If you have a lot of office chairs and it could work to be a pretty penny if you have get new ones for every employee, then reupholstery could be a better option. After a few years of use the material on the chairs would have frayed or start to peel or tear. Repairing it is pointless but you could simply reupholster all the chairs. This is also your chance to give the office a unified look. Because you’ve probably bought the chairs one at a time so they all look different. When you go to the furniture upholsterer, be selective about the type and colour of material you choose because you want to create the united look across the business where all the chairs look the same.

2. Couches

In many lobbies and reception areas office buildings tend to have a couch or two where clients can sit comfortably while waiting for their contact person to meet with them. These couches are one of the first things that a new client will see when they visit your office and this is the first impression that they will get. If the couch is old and tattered in the waiting area this will create a negative first impression. But you don’t have the budget to get a new set of couches. It’s been tough lately so how can you change this impression? Take that couch to furniture upholsterers and tell them what you want the couch to look like. Let them know what colour you want and the type of material that should be used. Because you want to give the client a good first impression of your business.

3. Ottomans

Many of the modern offices have ottomans. There are different styles like some may have the larger ones in the waiting areas that double as a coffee table where they place a few of their company coffee table books. While in other offices they use the ottomans as decorative features and quick and easy seating solutions for lunch or tea breaks. When reupholstering the coffee table style ottoman it is a good idea to have this material match the couches. So use the same material as you did for the upholstery of the couches. With the standard cube sized ottomans you could get creative with these. If you have a fun office set up where you use lots of colours you can have the ottomans upholstered in different bright colours that match the colours of your office design. This will give it a funky modern style. You could go even further by using patterns or cool designs in the upholstery.

4. Wingback Chairs

These are elegant and beautiful chairs that may be in the office waiting area in upmarket or high end offices. These wingback chairs have a way of making the client feel like a king or queen while they’re in the waiting room. The high back and the arm rests are reminiscent of a throne. So if these wingback chairs are not in a good condition it could have the opposite effect on the client, making them feel less special. When you choose to reupholster these wingback chairs keep both your corporate colours in mind as well as comfort and style of the material. The right combination of colour and material will make the client feel special.
