Wrapping Up NeoCon 2017

As NeoCon 2017 drew to a close, we reflected on the various work space styles and office trends that resonated among the different vendors. From modular lounge and flexible soft seating to bright pops of color, benching units and more, there was a universal call to make the office feel more like home while encouraging the ability to collaborate anywhere. Here’s what our staff at Office Furniture Center observed.
