Contemporary Office Furniture

Taking a Closer Look at Contemporary Office Furniture

The world has evolved so well and everything is changing fast. It is definitely a bore to work in a stiff and old-fashioned environment when all you see are heavy wooden tables and heavy wooden chairs. These may look elegant but they definitely deserve a better place in the museum together with your old favorite grandfather’s clock. Pieces of contemporary office furniture are absolutely a must especially if you want to increase everyone’s productivity rate. There is nothing better than an office that is comfortable, convenient, and easy to the eyes. A light and cozy work environment is something you’d like to get up for every morning. Who would want to drag her or himself daily to the office anyway?

Research showed that the way the work space is planned, including the arrangement of the furniture, have a direct effect to the employees’ mood and productivity. This is the reason why many companies have started modifying their offices by going for pieces of furniture which are more modern and timely. They want everyone to work harder and better. It is not a problem to shop for these modern items because a lot of local furniture shops offer great deals. Some of them even offer highly affordable products that you may end up wondering what had taken you so long to redecorate your office.

Basically, you can choose from two types of contemporary office furniture: freestanding and panel-mounted. The latter is more commonly used. This type has wall panels which serve as the base of the system. Desks and file cabinets are directly mounted to these panels. Freestanding pieces of furniture, on the other hand, have dividable panels that are placed around them.

Both types of contemporary office furniture have their own pros and cons. Freestanding can be easily positioned, re-arranged, and reconfigured, while panel based ones render great flexibility when it comes to design. They can also be installed with built-in power supplies and their tall heights offer privacy and noise reduction capacity.

Pieces of contemporary office furniture are not only a hit in the corporate world but also among people who earn their living from home. A lot of individuals working from home like buying modern office furniture to make their workplace a little more appealing and inspiring. They put premium to their workstation just as much as they would have, had they been working outside in the real world.

Before buying any piece of furniture though, there are some things you must not fail to consider. First is the furniture’s comfort and support. You would not want to sit on an elegant-looking chair which gives you tremendous backache, right? Of course you’d pick one that has lumbar support. Another thing you must take into consideration is the shape of contemporary office furniture. For instance, an L-shaped table is better if you wish to place your computer against the wall, or you wish to turn to the window when you are writing or when you have to answer a call.

Moody Reviews

These pads feel *heavenly* to wear. Soft, barely noticeable but not too lightweight, and they stay in place all day!!! I love them, I can’t wait to get my next paycheck so I can order more. :) these were my first experience with the switch to reusables and I’m very impressed. If anyone else is on the edge of starting this route, GO FOR IT. Especially if you’ve ever suffered from itchiness from those plastic pad materials..this is so much better.


It's my first time buying reusable pads and I'm really happy with this pair. The print and design sold me, but the comfort and reliability have exceeded my expectations. They work for daytime and overnight use with no problems compared to disposable pads. Wish I bought these sooner. They're a total game changer for periods.


Beautiful pattern, expertly stitched, and lovely seller. Beyond happy. Very fast shipping too! Thank you so much!!! ❤️


High-quality, low maintenance reusable pads! Really nice, and they do stain but that can’t really be helped aside from doing a quick handwash before tossing it in the machine. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future!


These are the best!! They are not bulky and the fabric is so comfortable. I have tried shapes and patterns from several of the best selling shops and these are my favorite.


I like that they have metal snaps! The ones I have with plastic snaps do not last as long. I think these will hold up for a few years. Thank you!

Confusion Checkpoint

I know right!? Ok, so cloth menstrual pads are a washable, reusable alternative to disposable pads. Pretty sweet, right?

  • The regular absorbency pads are good for light to moderate flows. They are 100% cotton, with a layer of terry cloth (towel material) inside for absorbency. Cotton is a moisture wicking and breathable fabric, which allows menstrual fluid to dry rapidly, keeping you comfy and dry. This also means that these cloth pads can absorb a surprising amount of fluid!
  • The heavy absorbency pads are perfect for moderate to heavy flows. Heavy pads are longer than regular pads. These pads are primarily cotton, with cotton flannel and terry cloth for absorbency and breathability. Additionally, they have a layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) inside. This is a waterproof, laminated fabric that protects you from leakage. In the heavy pads, the PUL lining is in the pad core (the part that’s shaped like a peanut)!
  • The overnight cloth pads are great for heavy flows, and for overnight use. Overnight pads are longer than heavy pads, and flare out at each end. These pads are made of cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and PUL lining. In the overnights, the PUL lining extends throughout the entire base of the pad, so even the wings are leakproof!

Cloth liners are lovely for really light days, and as a backup for a tampon or menstrual cup. They are made of five layers of cotton. They are soft, barely noticeable, and peace of mind for that bit of protection.

Moody V regular absorbency pads and cloth liners are made with 100% cotton, which makes your down-there oh-so happy. Cotton is a breathable, moisture wicking fabric that creates a difficult environment for yucky bacteria like yeast to grow. 

Disposable pads are mostly synthetic, which is fully not nice to your body. They’re made out of bleached wood pulp (what the?) and non-biodegradable materials.

Moody V’s heavy cloth pads and overnight cloth pads are also primarily cotton. They have a polyurethane lining inside, which keeps moisture from leaking through. This lining is non-biodegradable (I know, it sucks). But remember, you’re not just gonna throw it away, you’ll probably use it like, 100 times.

The regular absorbency pads are made with cotton flannel and cotton terry cloth (like a towel material). Liners are just cotton flannel. Ugh! So simple! Love that!

The heavy cloth menstrual pads and overnight cloth pads are made with cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and polyurethane laminate. Ugh! Slightly less simple but still wow amazing and great! Love that!

Look at the “Wh-. . . What? Who? Where? What?” question at the top of this FAQ page to learn out each variety of pads work!

Method 1: Rinse with cold water ASAP to reduce staining. Machine wash cold, then air dry thoroughly to maintain a nice shape.

Method 2: Machine wash cold, tumble dry.*

*Method 2 gets your pad clean and ready to use again real quick, but may result in light staining and scrunching-up in the dryer. (Stains fade over time and you can stretch the pad gently with your hands to un-scrunch it.)

Some folks like to keep a container of cool water in their bathroom so they can soak their pads until they’re ready to wash them. This helps remove stains without using chemicals or potentially fabric-damaging products.

It’s recommended to avoid using fabric softener, as it makes fabric less absorbent.

Another good rule of thumb is not to use anything on your pads you wouldn’t wash your underwear with. Your pads are gonna be up close and personal with a sensitive area, so avoid harsh or irritating chemicals when washing them.

Cloth pads contain several layers of fabric, which means it might need extra time drying. Make sure they’re super dry out of the dryer or dry them in the sun to prevent mildew. Do be aware that sun-drying can result in fabric discoloration.
