Welcome to 2020. And while there are no flying rocket cars or space shuttles to Mars, we’re at least happy to report that we have the technology to keep our offices quiet with office phone booths, noise-canceling headphones and more. But the question is: have our offices caught up with the times?
In the last few months, our experienced team of Sales Executives and Designers has been busy at work creating truly beautiful and outstanding office design solutions for our clients. Of the highlighted projects in this post, we recently furnished L.H. Frishkoff & Company, Foley Mansfield, the Dearie Law Firm, as well as multiple offices for a prominent NYC landlord.

On September 17th, 2019, OFH CEO Marc Schwartzberg moderated at a panel, “Adaptive Footprint: Next-Generation Workplace Strategy & Office Design” at RETHINK OFFICE: NEW YORK’S SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2019 EVENT. The event covered important topics the NYC commercial real estate market is faced with from office building design and cost saving initiatives, to workplace strategy and data.
Commercial real estate brokers in New York City have a particularly challenging job. They are tasked with finding great space options for reasonable prices and convincing tenants to close on offers. It’s a competitive market and getting a potential tenant to decide on a space can be a tough go. That is why at OFH we provide complimentary design services and personal assistance to our broker partners to help make the decision-making process easier.
When you walk into a well-designed office with quality furniture, there’s an immediate emotional impact. The look of your office shows that you have made an investment in your company. The high standards you placed in growing your business can be seen throughout your entire office. The office furniture is well-designed, is strongly-built—your team feels great, and they are excited to work in their beautiful and healthy office. At OFH, we believe in going the extra mile to ensure that the offices we design are built to last because we know that quality furniture makes a difference.
This summer, we’re seeing a lot of new office furniture designs that are getting us excited. 2019 has been the year of the flexible office, and the office furniture that overtook Neocon and other major design fairs this spring directly responded to the need for more flexibility in shared environments: more defined lounge areas, combined with a reclamation of ‘private spaces’ in the form of office phone booths, glass-enclosed spaces, and noise-insulating technology. While 2017 was the year for improving wellness at work, the flexible office trend directs its attention to office furniture and design as a primary way to decrease distractions and make working a better experience for everyone. In this blog, we will focus on some of our office furniture finds that best represent this growing trend.
