Are you sitting comfortably?

It’s a question most of us have been asked at some point in our lives; and it’s a question that we should all take time to consider very carefully and seriously. As a company with over 25 years experience of supplying high quality office furniture to suit all commercial sectors, spaces, and environments, we at Severn Furnishing fully understand and appreciate the importance of sitting comfortably.

Many of us will spend anything up to 40 hours per week, sometimes more, sitting whilst working, thus making the chair we occupy one of the most important pieces of equipment we use to enable us to fulfil our role efficiently and satisfactorily. None of us would choose to spend our working day in restrictive, ill-fitting, or uncomfortable clothes; yet, all too often, we simply accept, without question, that the chair we occupy in our office or workspace is one, or all, of those things. 

So, are you sitting comfortably? 

Well, it’s important that you are for a number of reasons; because, if you’re not, then that could very well lead to issues impacting on your working day in many ways. Firstly, and most obviously, just being uncomfortable in your chair will make you less settled and focused at work, reducing your ability to concentrate effectively on tasks. This, in turn, is likely to make you less productive. In addition, being constantly unsettled might also lead to you encountering health and wellbeing issues, restlessness, or tiredness; possibly even causing illness and absence from work. Not forgetting, of course, that a restrictive, ill-fitting, or uncomfortable chair is one of the most common causes of the development of bad posture and back pains. 

You can, however, go a long way towards resolving these issues by simply investing in the correct chair to meet YOUR needs.

At Severn Furnishing we offer an extensive range of high-quality chairs to suit all of your group, or individual, requirements. Seating suitable for all areas, including workspace and meeting chairs, break out pods and reception seating. Chairs designed for comfort and practicality. Chairs designed to be versatile and adjustable. Chairs designed to encourage good posture and foster an environment of wellbeing and productivity.

We have a dedicated chair showroom in Cheltenham, The Office Backcare Centre, where we offer posture advice and can supply the perfect chair for each individual. Many companies send staff with back pain issues to us for our expertise and to purchase the correct chair to meet their needs.

Severn Furnishing are also able to offer free delivery of online purchases (within mainland UK) and, for orders being delivered within the Gloucestershire area, we will not only deliver free, but also carry out the set-up of the chair at your desk or workspace.

Then, the next time someone asks you ‘are you sitting comfortably?’, you’ll be able to say ‘yes’ with confidence.
