Latest Office Design Trends on Display at NeoCon Office Furniture Show

NeoCon shows off latest office design trends
The furniture on display at last week’s NeoCon 2016 office furniture show looked like it belonged in your home as opposed to your office. That was the biggest takeaway Office Essentials furniture designers brought back with them after traveling to the office furniture industry’s biggest trade show last week.

In fact, some in the industry have coined the term ‘resi-mercial’ to describe this blending of office and home furniture environments which is marked by an increase in couches.

This trend is being fueled by changes in the way we work:

  • Workers are no longer tied to their desk – these days many workers only need a couch and a laptop to get their work done.
  • This new style of office design appeals to younger workers, so many company’s are adopting it in order to attract and retain those workers.
  • Mixing of traditional office with pieces like couches helps address the different types of work being done in many offices now.

Here are some tweets from our furniture partners that were at the show:
