(The Forum: Darren Gibbins) "We're seeing a much smaller footprint each year, whether it be in an office setting or a workstation setting," said Roger Christianson, president and owner of Christianson's Business Furniture in Fargo. Christianson refers to it as "hoteling space." Businesses are also looking to reduce overhead by maximizing their square footage. "Instead of having to move to a more expensive office space, they can effectively utilize the space they have better," Christianson said. Office furniture often does double-duty. A rolling drawer might tuck under a desk to hold files and, with a cushion on top, roll out for an extra seat, Christianson said. A coat valet with a couple of drawers and storage have taken the place of an overhead cabinet, drawers under the desk and separate wardrobe, he said. Meanwhile, monitor screens have gotten bigger. Many employees now have two monitors, Christianson said. "Those two monitors have become their desktop," he said. Monitor arms are then crucial to lift the monitors off the smaller desk surface, where there's not room for monitor bases and stands, he said. As individual work spaces have shrunk, the offices they're in have become more open, Christianson and Wambach said. Remaining dividers are often glass for open lines of sight, Christianson said. While offices used to be situated along the perimeter and the workstations centered in the room, the opposite is now happening, Christianson said.

Roger Christianson, of Christianson's Business Furniture in Fargo, said he used to get calls "every now and then" asking about standing-height desks.
Within the past two years, it's gone from monthly to weekly to now almost daily. Christianson said changes in the way we work - printing to a PDF file instead of walking to the printer, clicking send on an email instead of getting up to send a fax - mean we sit even more at sedentary jobs. A tilted stool, for "perching" at a raised desk, allows workers to rest while still keeping the core engaged, Roger Christianson said.
