5 Pieces of Office Furniture that Can Actually Multi-Task [ workspace matters ]

Does your office furniture multi-task?

Some cooks say that nothing in your kitchen should serve only one purpose because you end up with a cabinet full of “gadgets” that you rarely use. Multi-purpose tools save space, money – and sanity.

Our designers know office furniture is the same way, so they have a few tricks up their sleeves for when clients have a need for some “creative” space planning and budgeting. Here are some of their favorite “double-duty” ideas that save you space and money.

1. Storage Seating

This Hon Voi credenza has an upholstered seat added to the top so it doubles as a bench (and is a sneaky way to add a pop of color to your office, too). This one is in our very own Furniture Department at Perry Headquarters.
BONUS! Mobile pedestals under desks can roll out and save the space that a guest chair would normally use.

2. Mobile Tables

Utilize small mobile tables to transform a training room to a conference room to a banquet room and back to a training room! These “Cruz” tables from Community are a great way to accomplish this, but many manufacturers offer these in different styles and finishes.

3. Storage Islands

Create a cluster of bookcases, lateral files and storage cabinets of like sizes and pop on a countertop and… VOILA! – a storage island that doubles as a standing-height workstation. It also works as a great informal meeting area! Check out these HON Flagship islands in our Customer Service and Accounting Departments.

4. “Parking Spots”

Need a space for quick meetings or a workstation for mobile workers like salespeople? Combine lounge seats, tables, and mobile ottomans to create spaces that can be used as temporary offices or “landing spots”. The same space can be used for small group meetings, brainstorming sessions or break areas. Allsteel’s Gather collection has several examples of small meeting/work spaces.

5. Cubicles That Work Harder AND Smarter.

Many panel systems have accessories available that can boost privacy, space division, and storage space. We can easily add tool rails to a panel to store supplies. Turn one panel into a white board surface without trying to hang a bulky board. Now that’s a cube farm that will grow some productivity.
