With the freezing commutes, dark evenings and stuffy working environments, the autumn/winter months can be a testing time for employees. It is therefore important to be prudent, and make any necessary changes to keep morale high and productivity strong.
Updating your interiors with a commercial fit out or refurbishment is one way of making the daily grind more bearable, which is why we’ve collated a list of stunning trends that are fitting for the coming seasons.
Whether you’re introducing new furniture or considering a complete interior design overhaul, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in this blog. Read on for our top 5…
Winter Wonderland Furniture
Our recent trip to the 100% Design Show in London gave a valuable insight into the upcoming autumn and winter trends, with one of most memorable being this selection of faux forest furniture.
For companies looking to establish a creative, fun and relaxed workplace culture, this is the perfect identity statement. In addition to this, the uplifting atmosphere it creates is a great way to boost staff morale.
Consider adding a distressed Wagamama-style bench among the soft wood logs and stumps: this will create a great seasonal breakout space for your employees.
Not only are hanging pendant lights a great addition for the reasons above, the aesthetic qualities they bring will give your office a noticeable lift. The atmosphere of warmth they evoke, for example, is ideal for autumn and winter, while those looking to create an industrial look will love the extended cables and retro shells.
A Copper Colour Scheme
According to Pantone, Copper Tan is set to be a key colour trend for the autumn/winter seasons. Described as “a burnished shade known for its welcoming warmth,” it is perfect for this chilly time of year, and will look great when teamed with a cooler shade like white or cream.
Another trend that wowed our office designers at the 100% Design Show was luxurious velvet furniture. The sumptuous fabric can really give your office an air of grandiosity, especially if you introduce ornamental velvet sofas and individual lounge chairs.
While it may be too cold to go outside, by introducing natural elements into your workplace you can bring the outside to you. There are a number of ways this can be achieved, including the following:
Tree stumps – Perfect as decorations or stools, these look great when placed alongside blonde wood furniture for a rustic interior design.
Natural Lighting – Introducing a sky ceiling, glass partitions or even more windows via a commercial fit out will give employees greater access to natural light.
Living Walls – This is the process where vertical surfaces are transformed into a wall of grass or foliage. This year, moss walls are becoming increasingly popular because they require little or no maintenance.
We hope that our trends have inspired some bright ideas for your interior revamp, and wish you a successful autumn/winter period. For more inspiration, please check out our projects in the ‘Our Work’ section of our website.
