As popular as the Aeron chair is, it does have competition with the Haworth Zody chair. The Zody chair is the only chair to ever get an endorsement from the American Physical Therapy Association. As you may expect, this chair puts function over form. The chair isn’t unattractive — in fact, Haworth commisioned the German design company Ito design for assistance — but its focus on science and ergonomics is what sets it apart. The Zody chair features a unique asymmetrical adjustment system designed with the University of Michigan’s Human Performance Institute, which allows you to target problem areas like the lower back and make the chair conform to your body.
Some metal file cabinets have stops that prevent more than two file drawers being open at one time. Wood lateral file cabinets are easier to incorporate into an office decorating scheme because they come in colors that match other office furniture. Wood lateral file cabinets are typically made from medium density, laminated fiberboard and usually have ball-bearing slides for smooth drawer opening and closing. They are generally made to hold either business size files or legal size files. They come in styles that resemble low profile dressers, with decorative pulls, and they also come in sleeker styles with "half moon" shaped indents built in instead of pulls or handles. Wood finishes of every kind are available, including paint finishes. Lateral file cabinets - particularly those made from wood - are very popular in home offices, particularly when the home office doubles as a bedroom, dining room, or family room. They look much more "homey" than standard metal vertical file cabinets, and are much easier to incorporate into any decor scheme. Less expensive models require assembly, but usually the only tool needed is a screwdriver. More expensive models will be pre-assembled.
Lateral file cabinets on wheels are also available, and their shape is more stable for rolling than vertical file cabinets on wheels. About the only "disadvantage" of wood lateral file cabinets is that they resemble nice furniture and cant always take the manhandling that metal file cabinets regularly take. Most people dont expect for a metal file cabinet to be attractive. With some models of wood lateral file cabinets, the laminate is easy to scratch or mar. This is primarily a problem with lower priced file cabinets. But overall, people like lateral file cabinets, whether wood or metal, for their easier access and space maximizing properties. Without having to pull the drawers out as far as with vertical filing cabinets, access is easier, and tipping forward is less of a threat.
This allows you to make notes for yourself if you need to give something to write on at a moment’s notice. Small pieces are also helpful if you need to record something you need to do at a later time. Folders can also help to keep the area organized. Although the room where the desk is lit by an overhead light fixture, holding a small desk lamp on the desktop gives you additional lighting. Depending on the design of your modern desks for home, an overhead light fixture cast shadows on the desk, especially if you sit between the light and you’re desktop. A desk lamp illuminates the shadows and gives you the right lighting to complete your desktop activities. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to work from home, you know how influential your home office furniture can be with regard to your productivity. The desk, in particular, plays a critical role in any office space, particularly one at home.
