When you think of your living room, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Beyond the creature comforts of your flat screen TV and fireplace, of course. Chances are, it’s texture and color. That gorgeous throw blanket you bought on vacation last year. The carefully chosen paint on your walls. The inviting warmth of your favorite chair’s upholstery.

That’s what we love about designing a space—determining those seemingly small touches that add up to a bigger, more beautiful picture. And in the office? Those curated elements matter more than ever.

A Home Away from Home

While some of us are still remote or on a hybrid schedule, many employees are back in the office full-time. The comforts of home—soft seating, flexible room configurations, and personal style—contribute mightily to how we stay productive and focused.

And organizations across the globe have noticed, including HON.

“Workplaces everywhere have evolved,” said HON VP of Sales Ric Andersen. “How we meet goals, foster creativity, and encourage engagement isn’t one-size-fits-all. Recognizing that people have different ways of staying productive and focused—and adjusting the environment accordingly—is all part of the new in-office experience.”

The Benefits Go Beyond Beautification

While enhancing the aesthetic of your space feels great, there’s more to fabrics and paint than a bit of color or a fancy pattern. A lot of scientific research goes into developing textiles that stand the test of time in high traffic spaces. Let’s touch on the additional advantages of choosing the right textile.

Strength & Durability

The way people sit is unique. We all have different body types, comfort zones, and pressure points. How much weight and movement a fabric can endure without tearing or breaking down is an important consideration when it comes to office seating.

Whether it’s luxurious lounge seating in a reception area or an industrious task chair, the tensile strength and durability of the materials used is a top priority when it comes to investing wisely.

Cleanability

Classrooms and healthcare facilities are busy—sometimes messy—spaces. From spills to surface scratches, furniture in these busy places can take a beating. Adding fabrics with built-in moisture barriers eliminates the worry of compromised performance and aesthetics. Available as a choice on the HON NOW Quickship Program, Supreen® is a revolutionary composite material that incorporates the performance of a coated textile with the beauty and luxurious softness of a woven fabric.

Sustainability

We all want to make the world a better place. And at HON, fostering environmental stewardship is one of our many missions. Last year, we partnered with SEAQUAL INITIATIVE® to repurpose reclaimed marine plastics into fabrics. Available on most of our award-winning seating and many other solutions our customers depend on every day, SEAQUAL’s commitment to using 100% post-consumer materials is breathing new life into everyday spaces.
