So many people today complain about the open office. There are articles all over the place that say we should all move on from the open office setup and find a different way to design office space. The reason? Noise and distractions. While we at MPS know all too well about these issues, Arwen McMakin of Furniture Solutions Now thinks the open office design can be great. “I think it is a good thing,” she said. “When you hire someone who’s young and new, you wanna be able to be visible with somebody who’s experienced.” The idea that working together in an open environment can contribute positively is something she is passionate about. “The majority of us love to be around people, so I don’t think it’s gonna go.” Says Arwen, when talking about what may eventually happen to the open office design. The idea that a proper work environment can be accomplished with open space is something that Arwen and others at Furniture Solutions Now believe in. When asked why she is so focused on helping put together the right furniture plan but also incorporating acoustics and other treatments, she says “The customers don’t know, they’re relying on me to do that.” Arwen has a passion for helping her customers get a space that works. Her focus on utilizing partners to help her create the right space has made her one of the leading designers and account managers for a great partner in DFW.
