According to recent demographic studies, at least 34 million Americans work from home on a full or part time basis. With the new shift towards at-home work, an unprecedented demand for flexible and comfortable home office furniture is rising. In response to this need, PatioAndHomeFurniture.com has introduced an elegant line of home office furniture that has all the components necessary to accommodate a productive and enjoyable day at work, even from home.
From bloggers to stock brokers, more and more Americans are enjoying the luxury of working from their homes either full or part time. Benefits of working from home include reduced carbon footprint and energy usage, reduced spreading of illness thus reducing absenteeism, improved morale, and broadened skills and abilities to handle multiple and varied tasks. One concern that managers have voiced, however, is a lack of quality because of the casual, at-home atmosphere.
"Style is not just a small part of the picture. Especially when working from home, it's important to create a professional atmosphere. The right office furniture can make you feel like you are working in a top name office even though you've never left your front door. Creating that air of professionalism could be the difference between giving over mediocre results and turning out some of your best work." Explains Josh Berman, head of Customer Service at PatioAndHomeFurniture.com.
The new lines of Leda Furniture (and other top name brands) feature more comfort and convenience for the user. It's not all about luxury, though. A study conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that over 100,000 employees were out for nearly a full workweek because of work-related injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and neck issues. Whether at home or in the office, the more time people spend in front of their computers the greater the need for supportive office chairs, flexible computer desks and convenient filing cabinets and systems. With proper office furniture and placement, it is projected that these injury incidents can be reduced or avoided altogether.
Common work-related injuries include repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as neck, shoulder, and lower back pains, headaches, irritability, red eyes or eye irritation and even difficulty sleeping. The new designs on this Leda home office furniture come with a focus on ergonomics, that is, keeping the user safer as well as more comfortable while on the job. Features on the new office chairs include improved lumbar support, adjustable chair height for supporting knees and hips, flexible chair backs, and swivel motion for easier access to a larger range. Computer desks are designed so that employees can have everything they use regularly at close hand, reducing the need for strain. Even filing cabinets can be set up to promote a healthier work environment.
"Truth is, even someone with a regular nine to five often brings work home with them or catches up with work email on the weekends. So more stylish and ergonomic office furniture is really a benefit for everyone." Concludes Berman.
