You likely know Father Joe’s Villages as the non-profit organization that for years has selflessly served the homeless and needy.

When Father Joe’s needed a friendly, flexible, collaborative workplace, with seating solutions placing real emphasis on budget-friendly, they found the answer in products from Allseating.

We weren’t surprised. At Rose City Office Furnishings, Allseating has long been a manufacturer whose products we could offer with enthusiasm. Our customers recognize the value and have made it one of their favorites, too.

Durability, functionality, and aesthetically pleasing design at a great price point are tough to argue with. Customers appreciate the wide scope of choices – from executive chairs to conference room, guest chairs to side chairs, even bar stools, plus thoughtful accessories including keyboard and monitor supports and more. They’ve got it all and do it right.

Allseating more than lives up to its name!

Father Joe’s went with the Viva task chair.

You might say the features speak loudly and clearly. Starting with a boldly designed back that automatically self-adjusts to body type and movements, and comfortably accommodating various users and changing tasks. Patented mesh technology is smooth, strong and designed to last, and durability is insured thanks to air-cushioned arm caps guarding against abrasion and wear-and-tear.

Combine that with Allseating’s amazing array of fabrics and colors to suit all tastes and any workplace, and you’ve got an unbeatable value at a great price.

For short-term seating, Father Joe’s then went with another winner from Allseating, the Inertia side chair. Seating that is comfortable, affordable, and stackable when not in use, delivering terrific value and durability, year after year after year.

Countless studies and news stories talk about it and extol the virtues of the ergonomic office, and benefits of today’s ergonomic office furnishings. Many customers ask us about it, and want to know not only what it means, but also what kind of difference it can make for them and their business.

They tell us it sounds good – and complicated – but are anxious to learn more about the role of ergonomics when it comes to choosing the right office chair, conference chair or adjustable chair. And how can they get just the right fit, all the function you need, and get the lasting value that their budget demands?

Not only good questions, the right questions, and the best place to start is with the definition from the Collins World English Dictionary:

Ergonomic (adjective)
1. of or relating to ergonomics
2. designed to minimize physical effort and discomfort,
and hence maximize efficiency

Future posts will focus on specific products, but for now, here are some helpful tips.

It’s a simple checklist of things to bear in mind as you consider your options, courtesy of our friends at ESI Ergonomic Solutions.

Your Forearms!
Keep them parallel to the floor with your elbows at a right-angle

Your Upper Arms and Elbows!
Try to keep them as close to your body and relaxed as possible

Your Wrists!
Not bent up, or down, but straight, and as flat as can

Don’t forget your Mouse!
Where it’s positioned matters – at the same height and adjacent to your keyboard

Or Your Computer Monitor
The most common mistake is too far away and at the wrong height. Make sure the top casing of your monitor is 2-3” above eye-level, and it’s positioned 18-30” away

Last, but not least – Your Feet!
Resting comfortably on the floor, even better if they’re supported with a footrest to provide flexion..

You’ll feel better and be more productive.

It’s always the little things that make a really big difference.
