Elegant Home Workspace
By Shanuka Kadupitiyage
Although lockdowns seem to be over, it’s clear that working from home is the norm and that isn’t going to change in the near future. Even if you are back at the office, the past experiences would have convinced you of the importance of having a separate home workspace to boost your productivity, and maybe even those you share your home with.
You might have already done a lot of research on setting up the perfect workspace for you, and although you don’t need to break the bank to make a functional and elegant setup, some might see value in purchasing a new table or two.
Prageeth Wimalaweera has understood this fact perfectly, and he is already providing the solution.
Prageeth’s education in business was acquired gradually while working in his uncle’s packaging material supplying business. “He got me involved in each and every area of running a business from production to sales to accounting,” Prageeth recounted. “While I was working for him, he encouraged me to start a business of my own. That is when I started supplying office equipment and supplies. While working towards this goal, I had the ambition of starting my own office furniture line.”
With this in mind, Prageeth began manufacturing office tables starting in January 2020.
“Then, unfortunately for everyone Covid-19 struck in March 2020. Everything was shut for a few months.” With a fledgling office furniture brand that relied on offices opening and staying open, this was a crippling blow for Prageeth.
Amidst the struggle to maintain his business, Prageeth saw an opportunity in supplying basic office tables for people working from home. “I was always fascinated with social media pages on office and work from home setups in other countries and wanted to create tables and other accessories so that people in Sri Lanka could create their dream work, study or gaming setups”.
With this in mind, Prageeth adapted to the circumstances and started promoting his products and brand online using social media, focusing on the ‘work from home’ concept, and has had much success.
From their customer favourite ‘Warren Table’ to L-shaped tables and even electric height adjustable tables, Spectro Furniture’s products are minimalistic in design and come in both white and black flavours. While the height-adjustable models are imported from a trusted manufacturer, all of Spectro Furniture’s other products are made locally by the hands of skilled and experienced craftsmen. This allows Spectro’s products to be customised to fit your home’s requirements while assuring the best quality.
“We provide a one-year warranty on our products. Also, with time if clients want to re-paint the furniture that they purchased from us we provide that service too”, Prageeth added.
“Sometimes it is difficult to find readymade tables in white or black unless they are customised. We use the best quality raw materials to produce our tables and never compromise on the quality of our products, and we always deliver on time”.
Unlock your creativity
Going a step further, Spectro also provides accessories that you might find useful such as withmonitor risers, table mats, and cable management units; all of which can be used when creating your dream work, study, or gaming setups.
“I encourage my customers to be creative with the tables we provide and send pictures of their setups,” Prageeth said. “I enjoy seeing how people use Spectro’s products to create beautiful setups and often share them on our social media pages.”
A little space for you
“All we do is provide quality furniture and accessories which are given personality through the creativity of our clients”, Prageeth continued. “By sharing our clients’ setups, we want to encourage people to create a small area in their homes for working or study purposes which can help them to focus on their work and increase their productivity”.
More things to come
Prageeth is very happy with how much he has achieved with Spectro Furniture, and has no plan of slowing down. He informed us that plans are already underway to expand their product line-up to include not only office furniture such as cupboards, filing cabinets, drawer sets, but also home furniture products. It’s clear that with monitorSpectro Furniture has come a long way in a short period of time, and we’re sure to hear more great things in the future.
