In a recent article on, Liz Elam, Founder of Link Coworking in Austin, shared one very important thing on her daily to-do list: disrupt the norm by rearranging the furniture in Link’s shared space to spark collaboration and keep creativity fresh.

Liz has followed this model of disruption for years, and it’s afforded her some interesting insights into the impact physical space can have on productivity and innovation. Among them is the realization that certain components of your office design deserve a greater investment—and more mindful research—than others. While rugs and artwork might change with the seasons or the trends, other staples, like office chairs, should not be skimped on.

“If a leader of an office doesn’t want to sit in a certain chair for eight hours straight, team members won’t want to either,” she said.

Liz is right. That’s why at Smart Furniture, we’ve made it our priority to help you feel confident and informed about your purchase. Our Office Chair Genius takes you through a series of questions designed to select your perfect chair based on height, work style, preferred postures and more.
