Today on the blog, we couldn't be more excited to showcase and review the popular chairs from their Manchester collection. This top notch executive chair line offers the cutting edge appeal and upscale features needed to rock your interiors. Prepare to be impressed!

Eurotech Manchester High Back ChairStyle:

Manchester office chairs from Eurotech provide an upscale executive look that works great in high end interiors. Even at first glance, a Eurotech Manchester chair will wow you with it's overstuffed ribbed back design. The black nylon loop arms and base help contribute to the well rounded look without being too over the top. The Manchester makes a lasting impression with it's unique and distinctive characteristics.

Manchester Chair - Side ViewApplications:

As previously mentioned, the Manchester is best suited for executive office use. That being said, it's loop arms and well padded surfaces make it a great option for professional conference and boardroom seating needs. The Manchester chair with black leather upholstery looks great in modern interiors, while the brown variation is more suited for traditional environments. These chairs from Eurotech aren't ideal for tasking as they lack adjustable arms. However, they are still very versatile and comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to use a Manchester office chair for home computing.

Manchester Chair with Brown UpholsteryErgonomics:

If you're on the hunt for an ultra adjustable ergonomic swivel chair, the Manchester probably won't be your first choice. That being said, it's very easy to use effectively. With it's thick padded seat and back, the Manchester provides an excellent sitting experience without the need for a single adjustment. Those in search of personalized operating will love the multi functional tilt mechanism that controls both angle and tension. The waterfall seat edge that's standard on both the high and mid back Manchester office chair models helps take pressure off the user's knees while working to improve blood flow.

Price:

The LE255 model Manchester chair is priced the most affordably at $263.50. The more executive office friendly LE150 model high back Manchester chair from Eurotech is only a bit more expensive at $283.50. The only noticeable difference between the two models is the overall height. Taller chair operators will certainly want to invest the extra twenty bucks to purchase the high back model from this popular collection.

Rating:

Eurotech Manchester Chair RatingWe gave the Manchester seating collection a 3 out of 5 star rating. This chair line from Eurotech is well rounded, comfortable, and surprisingly affordable. Manchester chairs are great for larger operators, but lack a few of the key adjustments we'd like to function effectively through longer sitting sessions. All in all, you can't beat the value provided by this Eurotech seating solution.  If you're remodeling your executive office or boardroom, give the Manchester a series look!

5 Office Chair Operating Tips for Improved Comfort

Office Chair Operating Tips for Improved Comfort by OfficeFurnitureDeals.comWe're all well aware of the importance of good posture in the workplace. That being said, applying posture tips to your sit during busy days is easier said than done. But have no fear! We're here to help. Today on the OFD Blog, we'll highlight 5 office chair operating tips that are easy to remember and incredibly effective. Enjoy!

1.) Let Your Chair Get Your Back

Each time you lean away from your office chair to work, you're missing out on the essential support needed to operate effectively. You need to let you chair get your back! After all, that's what it's there for. Make it a point to keep your back in contact with your chair at all times. If you need to lean forward, grab the correct lever on the side of your chair to lean it with you. Before you know it, this simple operating technique will become a thoughtless habit.

2.) Keep Your Head Up

When operating in your office chair, it's important to keep your head up. If you're looking down at your computer screens when sitting in your chair, raise them up. The professional solution is an attachable computer screen mount from a bran like ESI or Symmetry Office. If funds are tight, you can quickly solve the problem for free with a cardboard box or stack of magazines. Looking down when operating will cause neck pain, cramping, and strain over the course of your work day. The longer you allow the problem to run it's course, the worse the long term effects will be.

3.) The Chair Is Not A Foot Rest

All too often chair operators find themselves working with their feet perched up on the base of the office chair. This bad habit results in poor blood flow. Poor blood flow leads to fatigue, and the list goes on! When sitting, be sure to keep your feet placed flat on the ground and facing forward as much as possible. This "ergonomically correct" sitting position helps to ensure proper spine alignment. It also helps you get the most out of that fancy ergonomic office chair you invested all that money into!

4.) Get Out of Your Office Chair

Sometimes the best way to achieve an improved sit is to get up, and walk away. Did you know that extended sits can actually shorten your life span? Once every hour, you need to get up and take a short break. Walk around, grab a drink of water, and stretch out those muscles. If you sit for long periods of time, your body well become fatigued. When fatigue sets in, posture suffers. In truth, fatigue is posture's worst enemy! To operate your chair effectively, get out of it every once in awhile. You'll return refreshed and ready to tackle this important tasks.

5.) Read The Manual

Last but not least, you need to familiarize yourself with ALL of your chairs essential features. If you can, commit them to memory. Believe it or not, most people avoid adjusting their chair throughout the day and settle for a sub par sit because they haven't taken the time to understand the features available on their chair. Then they complain about discomfort, when the support they're lacking is only an adjustment away. It's really silly! Don't allow yourself to fall into the "set it and forget it category". Learn to be confident in your office chair and your ability to adjust it at a moments notice to operate effectively. Once you've read your chair manual, put it in a safe place. Browse through it once in awhile. At least, until you have the levers located on your chair mechanism memorized. In the long run, you'll be glad you did!

Get Your Dimensions:

To conduct a successful office makeover project you'll need a detailed plan of attack. That plan cannot be professionally formulated without accurate interior dimensions. To obtain the dimensions of your space, you'll need a tape measurer, scale ruler, and paper. When measuring your space, take note of the entry ways, windows, and power outlets that will all play rolls in your layout.

Space Planning Essentials:

Create A Timeline:

Don't allow yourself to turn a simple 2 week project into a 6 month nightmare. Setting a timeline for your project will help keep you on track. On average, in-stock office furniture will ship from the factory within 2 business days. Transit times will vary based on where products ship from. That being said, it's important to contact manufacturers and dealers directly before making a purchase. If you choose to go with custom products that are made to order, the timeline for your project will certainly need to be extended. Made to order desks and chairs take approximately 3 to 4 weeks to manufacture. Be sure to plan accordingly!

Set The Budget:

You'll no doubt want to avoid overextending your business! For this reason, you'll need to set a realistic budget for your project. The good news is, popular modern office furniture solutions are available at nearly every consumer price point imaginable. Do a little pre-shopping online and create a quick cost analysis.

You an also contact dealers directly to inquire about popular collections and ideas to take your project over the top.

Space Prep & Installation:

Once you've purchased new furniture and accessories of your space, it's time to start prepping! Contact your dealer about 2 days after you've placed your order to inquire about tracking information. With tracking info, you'll know exactly when your furniture is set to arrive. About 3 days before products show up on your door step, remove old furniture.

*If you're planning to apply a fresh coat of paint to make your new furniture pop, nows the time to do it!  Bright green, light blue, and gray paint finish options have been incredibly popular in 2016 for modern remodels.

With a fully prepped interior, create a staging area for your furniture to be placed when it arrives. Don't just overload your interior with boxes. It will make the installation process a headache! Instead, bring items in one at a time to be assembled individually. You'll have the project knocked out in no time at all.

With your new furniture fully assembled and installed, you'll be left with plenty of debris that's in need of disposal. Break down boxes, collect bubble wrap, and vacuum your floors. Take a moment to wipe down your new furniture and office seating with a surface friendly cleaner. Once complete, take pics and show off your hard work! Send your dealer pics and ask about additional ways to improve your interior. They'll be more than happy to help.

First things first, you gotta know what's going to fit! All too often, picky shoppers rush out looking for new office furniture only to find that what they like won't fit. In truth, we all want what we can't have. Don't allow yourself to be sucked into this common epidemic. Properly prepare by finding out what will fit before hand. To do this, you'll need accurate dimensions of your interior. Bust out the tape measurer and scale out your area on a piece of paper. With accurate dimensions, you'll be able to narrow down the furniture selection process with a quickness.

Important Space Planning Advice:

When measuring your space, don't rely on old blue prints for accuracy. You need to personally take the dimensions of your workspace and then have a trusted friend double check them. After scaling out your area on paper, be sure to take note of all entry ways, power outlets, windows, and room structures that will affect your layout.

2.) Get A Little Inspiration

A little inspiration goes a long way, especially for picky shoppers! Make an appointment at a local furniture showroom. You'll be rewarded with a ton of awesome ideas and literature to help your project run smoothly. If you don't have a showroom close by, take to the web! Social sharing sites like Instagram and Pinterest will give you lot's of inspiring office makeover ideas that can be applied to your project.

3.) Research The Trends

Researching and understanding the latest office remodeling trends will help even the pickiest shopper gain direction for their project. This year, shoppers can't go wrong with gray wood grain tones.

  • Green and Red Office Chairs
  • Powered Conference Tables
  • Open Concept Desking

Okay picky shoppers, it's time to select a brand! We highly recommend going with a full service manufacturer to avoid mix matching products from various collections. Reputable furniture brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and OFM are the best in the business. They offer the wide range of components needed to full furnish every area of your home and business.

When selecting a brand, be sure to choose one that falls in line with the decor them you're hoping to incorporate. For traditional wood veneer furniture, the Mayline Sorrento collection is awesome. For modern open concept desking layouts, you can't go wrong with Global Total Office. Shopping for ultra cool reception area seating? Give OFM your full attention!

Narrowing your search down to a few key brands and collections will expedite the remodeling process while ensuring an successful remodel!
