What Should I Consider When Looking for an Executive Conference Table?
Your options of executive conference tables are many. You should, however, consider a number of factors to use your conference room furniture to its most appealing and effective limits.
- Consider an executive conference table that reflects your company's image and branding efforts. For example, if your office furniture designs are all contemporary styles, in lighter woods, traditional meeting room furniture in dark woods, like walnut or mahogany, might hamper your overall office design goals.
- Consider the size and dimensions of your conference room. For instance, a fabulous round conference table that is too large for your room, causing all attendees to be in imminent danger of hitting a wall or a door, is inappropriate and will lose all of its otherwise wonderful appeal. Even if you need a large conference table, you should probably consider rectangular or boat-shaped conference tables to bring your room back into proper perspective.
- Consider the quality you need based on the level of usage your room receives. For example, if you're having budgetary issues and your conference room has only rare or sporadic use, you might consider choosing impressive looking meeting room furniture at a bit lower quality (and corresponding lower prices). Conversely, if your conference room furniture is used often for staff, committee, customer, elected official, and senior management meetings, your executive conference table should be high quality and constructed of materials that will last and require minimum maintenance.
Conference tables and other meeting room furniture should be a combination of taste, character, professionalism, and durability. Meetings and conferences often lead to important corporate, marketing, and/or customer decisions. Those making these decisions should operate in a pleasing and effective environment.
