Lounge seating makes for a comfortable commercial environment
Commercial lounge seating options
Lounge seating is one of the largest seating categories covered by Contract magazine. As hospitality continues to influence other project types such as office, education, and healthcare, lounge seating is seen in more places, and used in more unique ways. Once a seating type that was commonly seen in hotels, airports, and even restaurants, it is now not uncommon for offices to incorporate many lounge areas that provide employees with an option of a flexible work environment. Lounge furniture can encompass lounge seating, lounge chairs, poufs, and other types of seating. It is an evolving category that includes new designs from some of the top designers in the world. Contract magazine is dedicated to following all of the latest design trends in commercial lounge seating.
Some of the top lounge seating companies and manufactures are Coalesse, Bernhardt Designs, Knoll, Herman Miller, Davis, HBF, Arcadia, Steelcase, Keilhauer, and Krug. Collaboration is a value that more and more interior designers are bringing into their design of a space, and lounge seating is one area where they can find suitable products. The design of a lounge area also often includes tables and other furnishings, which Contract magazine covers in its print and online product listings. Many offices and education settings also require lounge seating to feature technology support and integrated power. The special features of many products, including lounge seating, can vary by manufacturer, and can often be customized by the interior designer when specifying the product.
