The many uses of stools in the workplace


Posted on by Choice Office Furniture.  Tags: Choice Office Furniture, Stools

When compared to bold desk chairs and modern benching seating, stools are not the first thought when it comes to options for sitting in the office. But every type of seating has a place in the workplace – and that includes stools. Improve collaboration, comfort and cooperation in your office with simple stools. Choice Office Furniture carries stools from Canadian and American manufacturers that suit modern workplaces.

A great place to begin when understanding the uses of stools is looking into their everyday uses. A common setting for a stool is in restaurants, where stools create spots for casually gathering and sharing food and drinks. (On a side note, many of our stools were designed specifically for hospitality settings – they are highly durable and resilient seating options made for both style and function.)

In restaurants, stools promote casual gathering and sharing. Those same benefits can be applied to offices and workplaces. By offering some support and comfort but not the complete relaxation of an executive desk chair, stools are ideal for shared workspaces, multi-use areas and as extra seating when the need arises.

Here are a few of our favourite stools perfect for your workplace.

By Encore, the Wake stools come into two heights: tall (30”) and short (18”). Both heights feature seats made out of wood or can be upholstered. The Wave series are stackable and ergonomically designed to be comfortable and assist the user to be balance while sitting.

With similar considerations for style and comfort, the Chirp series is another type of stools made by Encore. Consider adding a Chirp stool to your workplace in casual meeting areas, break rooms and convenient additional chairs in multi-use settings.

Some modern stools don’t have slick styles or colourful finishes, but they make big contributions to the comfort and workflow of employees. Office Star Products is known for their practical and task-focused chairs, such as their rolling stools. These stools offer thick padded seats, simple seat adjustments and castors suitable for rolling on hard or carpeted flooring. They are perfect for employees that are often transitioning from sitting to standing and need the ability to move quickly from one task to another.

Add convenience and comfort to your office with modern stools. These chairs can improve productivity – all while matching your workplace’s style.
