Office Furniture Best Kept Secret - 9to5 Seating

Office Furniture Best Kept Secret - 9to5 Seating

American manufacturing is trending and we're proud to say we saw it coming. Over five years ago, we began our reshoring efforts, which resulted in better vertical integration that sets our quality and value apart from our competitors. It allows us to build quality into every chair versus only check for it at the end of production. We've been referred to as the industry's best kept secret.

Now, the secret is out and we can't wait for it to be spread.

Picking the Perfect Office Chair

Picking the Perfect Office Chair

Here are a couple of tips to consider when selecting your next office chair either for personal home use or commercial applications:

  1. Consider the environment - Is the chair going to be used at home or at an office location? Did your boss finally allow you to work from home? Well, now it's time to splurge on a great office chair with all the extra hours you will be putting in on YouTube...I mean production reports.
  2. What style suits your office space or personality? - Office chairs come in plenty of styles from all mesh, hybrid (cushion seat, mesh back) or the traditional upholstered backrest and cushion seat (think secretarial chair).
  3. Consider how you sit - Men typically like to sit reclined slightly back when working, while women tend to perch at the end of the seat pan with their back straight. This will determine what type of adjustments and features you will need on the chair.
  4. The amount of time you spend sitting - Sitting for extended periods of time is not recommend, but if your jobs does require a significant amount of sitting consider a commercial grade office chair. Most inexpensive chairs areNOT industry rated. Ask the sales rep at your local authorized dealer if the chairs are BIFMA rated/certified. Office chairs that are BIFMArated/certified have gone through extensive testing prior to market introduction.

Clyde & Co Selects 9to5 Seating Mesh Chairs

Last month I finished up a project with Office Furniture Group for Clyde & Co who is (according to their website) "a dynamic, rapidly expanding global law firm focused on providing a complete legal service to clients in our core sectors. We advise businesses that are at the heart of worldwide commerce and trade. Our combination of sector expertise, commercial attitude and in-depth regional understanding provides a unique perspective."

Clyde & Co was relocating to a larger office in the heart of Irvine and needed help selecting office seating and conference chairs for their redesigned office space. After visiting 9to5 Seating's state of the art factory and showroom in Hawthorne California the management was able to select the new Cydia series for their conference room and time tested Strata series for their task chairs. Both the Cydia and Strata are popular mesh chairs by 9to5 Seating.
