Excitement Hits the SOS Office!

OfficeChair_thumb

Yesterday, there was a treat in store for the SOS team… New office chairs!

We all said goodbye to the old, blue, itchy fabric, and said hello to the black and chrome leather (well, leather look) chairs! The only question was, when would we have time to assemble them with our busy schedules? And where will the old chairs go!?

Now, we all know that flat pack furniture can be tricky, and often takes longer to construct than anticipated - due to the poorly written instruction guides, and lack of screws and bolts.

Bearing this in mind, the first attempts took about 25 minutes, but soon after that, SOS’s Paul Katin was appointed chief chair maker, and raced through the construction of around 35 chairs in a matter of hours! So a big thank you to Paul!

Here at SOS, being environmentally friendly is a big deal, so the old chairs will not be wasted, and are on their way to a new, loving home as we speak…

So, what’s the verdict on the new chairs? Well… we may have been more attached to the old ones than we first thought, but we’re open to new things, and will embrace the change (for now).
