Modern office furniture speaks for you even when you’re out of the office—and halfway across the globe, meeting with other executives and making connections. So how can you be sure you’re sending the intended messages? Taking some time to thoughtfully consider different executive commercial office furniture ideas, layouts and designs can make all the difference.

Explore these three executive office designs and what they communicate to clients and employees in terms of your work style:

  1. The Open Office
  2. The Thought Leader
  3. The Stand-Up Exec

 Executive Office Design 1: The Open Office

Today’s modern office is all about collaboration—to the extent that some executives forego the plush corner office altogether. An office’s style of furniture says a lot. For instance, clients who enter this environment immediately recognize they are in a contemporary office, and will know to expect progressive values and forward thinking.

Furthermore, open office design layouts furnished with collaborative office furniture indicate the company’s move toward team-centric values, creativity, and innovation. Modular workstations and collaborative meeting spaces abound in this office type, with upper-level executives working alongside their employees.

In this modern office, the modern office furniture and décor set a tone of traditional values.

The modern leather executive chair completes the look, with guest chairs facing the office’s focal point—the person behind this robust desk. Visitors know this executive has reached the upper level of his or her firm, and the layout commands respect.

Executive Office Design 3: The Stand-Up Exec

First off, this executive office layout idea centers around the standing desk, which has become a popular desk option for high-energy executives that like to take a stand while at work, quite literally (and sometimes figuratively, too). 

In addition, replacing traditional executive office desk sets, standing desks have been shown to promote overall health including keeping weight in check, lowering blood pressure, and even increasing productivity.

Executives in fields ranging from fashion to health and wellness are using standing desks more and more, and many standing desk users like to pair them with a treadmill so that they can get their steps in during the workday.

Standing desks can also be a statement piece — especially when facing clients and during calls and meetings. The message here is “I am making time for you but I am also a busy person who is going to put my needs first”. When done tactfully, this is a keen negotiating tactic.

That said, many executives choose to pair their standing desks with other modern office furniture. This gives clients and business colleagues their full undivided attention.
