Office furniture gets a lot of usage each week and we sometimes grow attached to our chair at the office. If the chair cushion has become lumpy and is no longer comfortable, then there’s no need to order new office furniture. You can handle a problem like this yourself.
Check with your employer to make sure this is okay. You might also be able to get reimbursed for all your expenses. Your employer will see this as a proactive way to save the company some money. Businesses are still struggling to stay afloat, so this is more important than ever. Recycling old office furniture is much preferred to simply tossing it in the trash.
Of course, if you’re really handy with tools and such, you can repaint the chair frame, recover the chair cushion and then you’ll have a chair that looks and feels brand new. If this idea catches on, you might expect your employer to want to do this with several office chairs.
Fabric for office furniture is usually a bit more durable than for home furnishings. However, you can use any type of upholstery fabric including outdoor canvas. This can be ordered online or purchased at a fabric store locally. Though office chair cushions typically have ribbing along the seams, it isn’t necessary to do this. If you’re good with a sewing machine, then this is a doable project though.
Getting a new chair cushion will make your day at the office more relaxing and fun.
