When designing an office space, it’s important not to overlook the importance of color. Here at OE, our furniture designers spend a lot of time with our furniture customers selecting not only the right colors, but then the perfect textures and patterns to go with them.
More on the importance of color from our partners at HON:
Understanding the psychology of colors and how they influence emotions, it is important to consider the energy you want your office design to convey or the way your brand colors make your employees and customers feel. Blue, for example, incites calmness and serenity. This color might be a good fit for a breakroom or waiting area. Colors like green, orange and yellow that are known to increase happiness might complement open plan spaces and high-productivity environments. Maybe you work for a company that finds importance in wealth and sophistication. If that’s the case, choosing colors like purple and black can give off a sense of authority and prosperity.
