Parquet

With a history dating back around 500 years, there’s nothing new about parquet flooring or the familiar angled positioning of its wooden planks. While its popularity might ebb and flow over the years, it’s definitely on an upward trajectory as we reach the tail-end of 2022.

Hideaway Home Offices

Posted on 17 Oct, 2022

During the national lockdown, millions of office workers across the UK and the whole world ended up working from home. Although many of us have since returned to the office, many companies large and small have adopted hybrid working patterns for their staff, where they are only expected to be in the office a couple of days a week.

While this certainly helps employees strike a more appealing work-life balance, having an office permanently set up in your house can be an unwelcome reminder of your day-job, even when trying to relax at home. Advancements have been made since then and in this article, we look at some of the current clever ways to make your home office as unobtrusive as possible and put some distance between your home and work life.

Between rising energy prices, increased cost-of-living and soaring rates of inflation, securing a pay rise is becoming ever more important for many within the design industry.

In this article, we take a look at how to go about negotiating a pay rise for yourself and what you can do if you don’t get the answer you were hoping for.

Negotiating a pay rise

How Workplace Interior Design has Changed Post Pandemic

Posted on 30 Aug, 2022

Since lockdown restrictions were lifted, some offices and other workplaces have adopted some variation or other of hybrid working. When most of us consider that phrase, we’re probably thinking of it in terms of combining working from home with being in the office. However, this hybridisation of the workplace has affected much more than that.

In this article, we take a look at some ways in which workplace interior design has changed since the pandemic, as offices attempt to strike a balance between work and home life.

Comfort

For many of us, working from home allowed us to enjoy unrivalled levels of comfort in a working environment. Some of us spent our day in a home office, kitted out with a luxurious gaming chair. Others wor... Continue reading >
