The KITS Collaborator: 2022 Office Furniture Design Trends

Posted by Michael Astle on Jan 4, 2023 1:00:00 PM

We’ve reached the end of 2022! And what a year it was. This was a big year for the contract furniture and design industry as we saw many workers move back to working in offices and we entered the era of the hybrid worker. To help entice workers back into the office, designers had to get creative with workplace designs to create welcoming and multi-functional environments that would get people excited about coming back in.

This year we saw several new trends pop up across the furniture that is the direct result of this new hybrid work era. s 2022 comes to an end we will look back at the year and summarize some of the top office furniture design trends that we saw from our manufacturer clients across verticals. This way when we head into 2023 you have the best idea of what offices are looking for when it comes to designs and layouts. With The KITS Collaborator, you can easily apply these trends to your own clients and layouts.

What are Virtual Showrooms and How Can You Create One?

Posted by Michael Astle on Nov 25, 2022 3:30:00 PM

If you’re using them now, are they making you stand out from your competitors and engaging with your customers?
