The problem with an open office
Collaboration is an asset for almost any employee, but there are a multitude of assignments that require none of it and even suffer for incorporating it. If you inject a measure of cacophony into the daily proceedings, you can be certain some of your star employees are going to begin seeing stars. If your attention is lost in the aggregate conversation, you lose the motivation to focus. You can’t hear yourself, let alone hear yourself think. Sometimes it’s nice to hear nothing, if not silence.

The Power of Mid-Twentieth Century Furniture in the New Millenium
Why is Mid-century modern on its way into the middle of the next century? As originally conceived, Mid-century modern was intended to conjure up nature. Using generous windows and open floor plans, the arrangement is organic. The natural essence is especially good for evoking a residential energy. You might think Mid-century modern is more outdated as years pass, but the opposite is happening.
When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, there is no "magic cure" that anyone can provide to make it disappear. A diagnosis like this is inevitably followed by weeks, months and even years of intense medical treatments and emotional grief. However, there are ways to make the ordeal just a little bit easier, and ChaiLifeline does just that.
ChaiLifeline is an organization that provides encouragement and assistance to children with serious illnesses and their families. ChaiLifeline is committed to creating good memories, fun times and constant emotional and financial support during trying times through activities, trips, other services and their two-week Camp Simcha, the "ultimate camp experience" which gives these brave kids "renewed hope, determination, and the thrill of simply being a child rather than a patient." The name "Simcha" means "joy" in Hebrew, which sums up what the camp, and ChaiLifeline in general, is all about.

$16 / Square Foot is Enough to Furnish a DC Office with Attractive, Comfortable, and Durable Office Furniture
Purgistics is bringing new brands and creative thinking to DC and Baltimore area offices. We have begun to introduce manufacturers with proven reputations and long histories in markets typically outside our region. You may not have heard of them yet, but they offer uncompromising quality and design at a lower cost than popular manufacturers like Haworth and Steelcase. And slowly but surely theirs are becoming household (or Officehold - for that matter) names. We spend a tremendous amount of time doing research, trying and testing, and even travelling to manufacturing plants, to reallly gain an understanding of the nature of the products. Many of these companies, not unlike ours, have been around for a couple of decades and are just coming into their own. For some, we provide an entrée into spaces involving designers and architects, in the DC metropolis. By utilizing our knowledge of these manufacturers, and leveraging our position in the marketplace, we are often able to furnish entire offices on budgets originally thought to be only for discount or refurbished furniture.

Millennials, also known as Generation Y, are classified as the generation born between 1982 and 2004. I will be the first to admit that many of us who have children that fall within this demographic were certain that because our kids preferred to text rather than converse, even within the same house sometimes, they would be grow up to be socially inept. I now admit that as counter-intuitive as it sounds, the exact opposite seems to have occurred. At least in the workplace. While the Gen X workers of the previous generation valued things like privacy, corner offices, and formality in the workplace, Millennials are drawn to spaces that foster collaborative creativity, openness, and teamwork.
