The main aim of an office and its employees is to produce or to contribute to a product or service that earns profits for a company. This is a clear, straightforward goal, but you’d be surprised to see how many factors can affect your workplace’s productivity. One of the most important, yet overlooked factors is your employees’ morale and mental well-being. If your employees don’t feel relaxed and empowered by your office environment, something needs to change.

One of the small details that affect employees’ mental state is office décor. It may seem insignificant, but according to one study from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, negative attitudes among employees were lower in aesthetically pleasing workplaces, while they were higher in workplaces that were not aesthetically pleasing. Another study examined the effects of workplace aesthetics on a Swedish broadcasting company. This one found that individuals in non-aesthetically pleasing workplaces complained more about work stress, problems at work, and musculoskeletal pain.

With this in mind, it’s important to choose workplace furniture and decorative pieces that are more conducive to your employees’ success. Natural, earthy colors tend to have mental effects that help your employees. For example, color psychology suggests that brown promotes feelings of stability and warmth. For this reason, furniture made from natural, plant-based materials might be just what your office needs.

Bamboo rattan furniture and wicker furniture are examples of exotic furniture pieces you might want in your office. Wicker Paradise has a collection of plant-based furniture perfect for your office or living room, along with a selection of wicker patio furniture for the outdoors.
