I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
A lot of furniture can be found in a typical business set up but one of the most important fixtures is the chairs employees use. There are several things that you should consider when getting chairs or office furniture, one is its capacity to keep you awake all throughout the day.
I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
No matter what the decision you will be making whether a projection screen or office chair casters you will have any kind of decor option available. The best thing about this abundance of choices is that you can customize your workplace to best suit whatever you need out of your office chairs and furniture.
These chairs take quite a bit of use and abuse, so you will want to make them from strong durable fabrics. It would be a good idea to make up many different types of chairs and sizes in a great variety of different fabrics. The more that you can show your customers the better it will be for your sales. Take pictures of all the different types of chairs that you can offer.
If the chairs at your dining room table are beginning to look past their best, then you have a few options available to you; do nothing and continue on with tired, worn out chairs; buy a completely new set of chairs; or invest in a set of chair covers to help you to breathe new life into the existing set. If your budget will not stretch to a whole new set of chairs for your dining room table, then buying chair covers could be the right answer for you.
