National Business Furniture Adds Standing-Height Desks to Meet Growing Demand for Healthier Office Furnishings
Recent studies show that office workers and others who sit for extended periods can improve their health and productivity simply by standing periodically through the day. Standing helps burn calories, and encourages the breakdown of sugars and fats. National Business Furniture (NBF) is moving quickly to add standing-height desks to its extensive selection of office furniture as demand for standing-height furniture continues to grow
“The research is compelling,” said Randy Farah, NBF V.P. of Merchandising, “We see a growing need for office furniture and accessories that give people the ability to stand up and move around and still get their work done.” Farah said that NBF is adding standing-height and adjustable-height products to their catalog and website, as well as developing products for the exclusive NBF Signature Series line, like the popular At Work office collection.
Health professionals recommend intervals of standing and sitting throughout the day, which can take various forms, from taking frequent short breaks to grab a glass of water or deliver a message to dividing workload into standing and sitting intervals.
“It made sense to add a standing-height desk to extend the practical nature of the At Work Collection,” Farah said. The standing-height desk can be used in combination with other At Work pieces, or can fit with other furniture lines, with its simple, contemporary look and neutral color scheme.
