Timeless Taste Meets Modern Design: The John P. Meehan Insurance Agency
The John P. Meehan Insurance Agency in Havertown, Pennsylvania, undertook a drastic build-out of its home office. After completely overhauling the property, they mixed sleek, modern design elements with the homeyness of natural wood and stone to create a warm and welcoming space.
Given the nature of the insurance industry, the new office needed a mixture of public and private spaces that could accommodate independent work and meetings of various sizes. A sense of openness throughout the space pairs architectural details and office furniture to maximize visual appeal. Glass panels and doors, semiprivate nooks, open doors, and an open desk plan create a diverse combination of workspaces to suit the working and meeting needs.
Kevin Emery worked with a series of interior design aesthetics and built-in fixtures to provide a comprehensive, cohesive scheme of commercial seating and executive desking. The resulting workspaces are timeless and trendy, coordinating with a neutral palette accented with luxurious natural wood and stone.
"We had a wonderful experience working with Kevin at NBF. He was helpful, professional, and his customer service was truly exceptional. We had some questions on the conference room chairs, and he personally came out to address this with us personally, toolbox in hand. We will absolutely shop there for any future furniture needs."
Excellent Everyday Seating
The Perspective collection was a clear choice for nearly every area, including the reception area and individual workspaces. Each desk was paired with a Mesh Mid-Back Chair to provide comfort at an impressive price point. Employees benefit from all of the chair’s built-in ergonomic adjustments and the mesh back's cooling properties. Seat and arm adjustments provide a custom fit for every size.
A Perspective Mesh Back Guest Chair across from most desks provides coordinating style and client comfort. The same cooling mesh and padded seat feel as great as it looks, while a durable, stacking steel frame ensures these chairs are a great choice for the long-haul.
Standout Style for the Conference Room
The John "JP" Meehan Memorial Conference Room is a stunning example of modern conference design. Ample natural light, thoughtful overhead fixtures, glass internal windows and doors, and a tech-ready setup continue the office's bright and airy aesthetic. Columnar features and crown molding add a touch of classic charm, making this area a true focal point for the agency.
Ten Harper Mid-Back Chairs surround a spacious conference table. The Stratus upholstery is made of cleanable, antimicrobial polyurethane. Chrome arms and bases are a visual highlight, creating a modern moment in this executive-style meeting space.
High-Profile Height-Adjustable Desking
Several private and semiprivate workspaces feature Statesman desks in a trendy gray laminate finish. Intricate picture frame detailing meets modern brushed nickel hardware to perfectly merge modern and traditional design tenets with an impressive silhouette. The L-shaped configuration provides a significant amount of personal workspace and a reversible return that accommodates client meetings–perfect for a private or collaborative space.
The Meehan Agency chose a fleet of Height-Adjustable L-Desks that accommodate perfect posture for any stature. Unlike many adjustable-height desks, this configuration has concealed actuators that give it a flush appearance when lowered, raising only part of the workspace to prevent unnecessary jostling on the rest of the desk. Ample storage provides additional luxury, keeping important files and supplies nearby while meeting modern ergonomic needs.
This build-out was clearly a thoughtful investment for the Meehan Agency. Their architectural and interior design choices create a luxurious yet comfortable employee-friendly and client-facing space using premium materials and custom molding. The Perspective, Harper, and Statesman collections were perfect furnishings for the space, blending seamlessly with existing fixtures and color choices. The efforts of Kevin Emery and National Business Furniture curated a collection of commercial furniture pieces that will help the John P. Meehan Agency enjoy the space for years to come.
