The quality of the furniture is one of the most important aspects in the design of an office. Not only can the right office chairs offer a level of comfort and functionality that drives on employees to achieve great things for the company, they can also provide an attractive aesthetic look that will impress.

It may already be the case that a business has their ideal furniture infrastructure in place but as time moves on and their use is a constant, their qualities may decrease – this is when office chair repair is needed.

Why Office Chair Repair Is Important

When people talk about improving their furniture, thoughts may go towards replacing the existing set completely. Unless the entire design of the office is also being reimagined, there’s probably no need to do so – why swap furniture that is already serving the business well?

Not only will investing in brand-new furniture cost an arm and a leg (pun, very much intended), it’s also may prove unlikely that the exact same items can be found to replace them. This could be an issue if the employees have grown used to the existing furniture they use and not to mention, if the furniture plays a key role in the branding aspect of the office design too.

Office chair repair can provide a cost-effective way of retaining the same furniture, yet give it a new lease of life at the same time. As chairs are in constant use, it goes without saying that rips, tears and markings may appear in the upholstery, the functionalities of the chair may not be what they used to be – a change of colour may even be fancied.

Improving the facilities that a business offers should constantly be at the forefront of its ethos – a culture of improvement will undoubtedly seep into the work it creates. It just doesn’t have to involve constant upheaval and change.

What Types Of Office Furniture May Be Improved?

The workplace of today may contain a multitude of different types of chair and other seated furniture. Whether it’s the executive chair to provide luxury, the conference chair for long meetings or a sofa to provide added comfort for waiting visitors or resting employees, all the best office designs contain many sitting options. Some of the more common, that require office chair repair, may include:

  • The executive chair has casters and wheels that rotate in all directions, providing the ultimate positional control for the user. Featuring a high backrest and lined with thick layers of foam and soft material (usually leather) they also offer the ultimate comfort. Due to their features, these types of chairs are at the expensive end of the scale (hence the name) – so repairing them will be a much more attractive option for any owners, instead of outright replacing them.
  • Swivel or ‘task’ chairs are a common sight in offices around the world. The way that they’re upholstered can vary – they may be backed with leather, vinyl, mesh or fabrics. What they do have in common though is that they are ergonomic – they can be adjusted and rotated to give the user an opportunity to find a level of sitting that suits them. This is key in providing them with the comfort needed to go about their work – they won’t be having to adjust to the limitations of the chair they’re sat on, or the height of the desk in front of them.
  • Although guest chairs aren’t mobile, adjustable or flexible, they do need to offer comfort to the user. They can be made from a variety of materials but usually the framework is provided by plastic or wood. It’s all about the upholstery with guest chairs, so if a business can present an attractive-looking, comfortable chair to any visitors (who may well be clients) it will be doing itself a great service.

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your coutesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs, apart from now being exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look. Many, many thanks - we will be recommending you whenever the opportunity arises.
