Cubicle Office Furniture Store (COFS) offers many various looks and styles of meeting room table and much depends upon the size and shape of your meeting room/boardroom as to which design will be the best fit. There are many parts to examine including the resources available, the size needed, how you want the overall room to look and how many will need to be seated.
Conference rooms have many purposes and are used for not only hosting meetings and conferences but also for holding interviews and for giving presentations, so it is essential to think about what your table will be required to do. Culture is fine, and it surely has its place. But more companies are thinking about the most beneficial use of space and the right furnishings to complement it. Contemporary meeting room tables are designed for this new generation.
The new meeting table still gets the job done. It provides plenty of room for meetings and work, but it also helps promote collaboration and the use of more innovative technology. Here are a few of the options that you have, and the usefulness of each.
Meeting Tables For Collaborative Offices
The collaborative office appears a bit like a fashionable term. Most offices collaborate on one level or another. What makes the contemporary office unconventional is that when working on a design or managing key decisions, everyone is often on the same page. There’s no head of the meeting. Or if there is, they are not seated in a power position.
For the office where working collectively is important, a modern meeting room table helps equalize the playing field for everyone seated. Round and square tables are ideally suited. With circles, watch out for minimal legroom underneath. Squares can have the same result, but they offer a bit more space
Technology-Focused Meeting Room Tables
Teleconferencing was once clever at best and undependable at worst. But technology has advanced to such a considerable degree, the teleconference is now a common feature in the modern office conference room. The main issue is allowing everyone in attendance an open view of the computer monitor, which is won by a simplistic shift in design.
Any take on a flared V shape, which is sometimes called a “keystone” style, fixes the problem efficiently. With the narrowest end of the table farthest from the monitor and the flared end nearest, everyone on all sides can see without obstruction. The person on the other side of the monitor has an unrestricted view of everyone around the table, too.
Modular Tables for the meeting Room
Modular systems can be worth their weight in gold for expanding offices or ones where the conference room isn’t booked for exclusive meetings. True to their name, you can build a modern conference room table using different components to produce a shape that works for you. Some of the possibilities include a U shape, hollow or solid circles or squares, rectangles, boats, and keystones.
One of the biggest benefits of modular office furniture is that you can rearrange the components to make individual tables. The meeting room becomes more useful with a simple rearrangement of small tables for brainstorming or planning, lunches, and workstations for guests. Because they’re manufactured for versatility, you won’t need an installer or work crew when you want to alter the arrangement.
Your meeting room might be a small spot in the office, or maybe it’s a wide-open space with square footage to spare. What makes it fresh is furniture that’s designed to work with the technology and methods of your business.
