Everyone knows that a first impression is a lasting impression especially in the Baltimore, Washington and Mid Atlantic business community. When visitors come into your modern or traditionally designed office for the first time, you have one chance to make a first impression. Every relationship starts off with a feeling, or opinion about something, someone or somewhere. This is why companies need to know that clients and customers are forming opinions about whether or not they will do business with you many times based on what they see when they open the door. Is it inviting, friendly and professional business environment or a disorganized mess and loud? Remember the space speaks volumes and first impressions matter especially in the Maryland. DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania corridors.
Comfortable Corporate Seating & Ergonomic Furniture
Comfort is key! If visitors walk into your office for the first time, your space should give them an idea of your company’s priorities and personality. Paying attention to details add up and a simple uncomfortable chair, a loud or disorganized office says a lot about how your company cares about its guests. Whether it is a VIP client, a job candidate or a potential customer, this impression paves the way to an opinion. A comfortable traditional or modern office environment communicates “We Care” about our guests and employees.

Company Colors Communicate A Lot
Deciding or changing the color scheme of your business reception area and its furniture is an easy way to communicate and project the energy you want guests to absorb about your organization. A brightly colored sofa or traditional wood circulation desk makes a statement about your company. If the reception area’s primary mission is to be a welcome center, consider incorporating warm or cheerful color tones on walls, reception furniture, and art. If you’re going for a calming vibe like medical offices or wellness centers, neutrals or cool colored furniture and surrounding walls and art will be best. Brightly colored accents are a great way to energize any reception area for companies trying to project a modern or progressive corporate culture. Office Colors can communicate a great deal about an organization’s vibe.

Cohesive Modern Office Design
Art including pictures, decor, and accessories go a long way towards pulling your reception area and its furniture together creating a cohesive message. These finishing touches help to complete the statement you want to make to your guests. Professional office designers utilize the elements of line, form, texture, and pattern to create a cohesive style. According to Alison Lehmann, Senior Designer for American Design Associates in Maryland, “We work with companies to create designs that incorporate all the elements needed to establish a winning business environment. Artwork and decor are essential when bringing together a total look. American Design Associates works with manufacturers like Great American Art to customize an organization’s vision.”
