A DINING chair can only get people so far, according to Ex-Government Furniture owner James Fullerton, who says a decent office setup is important for people working from home.
“We have a large range of office chairs that are comfortable and adjustable, as there might be more than one person using it,” he says.
“We also have a lot of small desks and workstations, as we know people are finding it hard to co-work with partners and kids at the dining table and need to create a separate ‘office’ in the corner of another room.”
At the moment, James says storage items are popular, too, particularly items like mobile drawers on wheels that allow people to hide office or school clutter by sliding it out of the way.
“Things have to look neat at home for those Zoom meetings!” he says.
“[With] school work, extra devices and office filing, it can all pile up. We all want to look professional and feel organised when having meetings at home.”
He says garage storage and metal shelving is also proving popular, as more people are getting into the garden or doing DIY jobs.
“People seem to have more time as they’re not commuting, and are out in the garden so the tools need to be organised,” he says.
Ex-Government Furniture, which James says sells designer items at a lower price, has a strict social distancing policy at the moment, with a cordoned-off area for bringing out and demonstrating products.
