NEOCON 2018: The Rise of Resi-Mercial

A couple of weeks ago, the Office Essentials Furniture Team headed north from St. Louis to Chicago for the 50th annual NEOCON office furniture convention. This year’s show continued a trend from last year towards making the office feel more like your living room. The convention featured products that intend to fill contract and commercial interiors with a homey, nostalgic vibe. This trend is called “resi-mercial”.

Manufacturers emphasized human-centric designs and products that incorporated bold colors and patterns. Below, you will find a few pictures the OE furniture team captured from the floors of this year’s show. There are a lot more on our Instagram page.
