The conference room is the center hub of the office. It’s where the daily information is distributed through staff meetings, where consultations with venders take place, etc. The most important furniture piece is the conference table. There are several sizes and shapes to choose from to fit any room. This includes large custom-made tables and modular designs that can be stacked together to make any shape. Finding a quality table is very important, as a cheaper table will not live up to the daily use required.
All around the world conference rooms are being used every day. It is a unique room as far as office furniture is concerned, because it is used not by one or two people but everyone. This is where management gives out daily tasks to the entire staff, where group planning is done, where safety meetings take place, where lunch meetings are held, and so forth. It is the core of the inner workings of an office. A highly functional conference room leads to a highly efficient office. This parallel translates quite literally as whatever is brought into the conference room is taken out as marching orders for the day.
The main piece of office furniture for the room is the conference table. This table serves as the place where everything happens. So the table must be strong, sturdy, and functional to the need. A small four-person round table is not a match for an office of twenty. Taking into consideration the workforce, plus guest such as venders and then number of seats needed will dictate what size conference table that must be purchased. Once size is known, selecting the shape will be the next step. Conference tables come in five shapes- round, square, rectangular, racetrack, and boat shaped. Each of these tables are distinct from the others. Knowing the difference will help make the selection easier.
Round - The shape is round like a ball. It has no corners, so the desk doesn’t have a head. They come in a variety of sizes. From fitting just four people to many more. Caution needs to be taken as the higher the seating capacity, the larger the space it will take up. Small round tables are popular for executives who need a small meeting area in their office.
Square - The shape is square which means that its length and width are the same measurement. Square tables tend to stay on the small side but because of their shape, multiple tables are placed together to make a larger table. This modular shape comes in handy when a large staff is required. Some unusual shapes are made with this type to maximize seating. For example, a large T shape is popular to allow for many people to participate in the meeting. Like round, square shapes are used for small executive tables and also commonly have power module ports in their center.
Rectangular - The rectangular shape means that the length is longer than the width. This measurement can vary significantly from table to table. It is one of the most popular shapes when it comes to conference room furniture. These pieces can be stacked together as well making for a custom table to fit any need. This shape gives a boardroom feel to the room as it is the most common table found in that environment. The rectangular shape provides plenty of seating positions with its longer length size, unlike round and square where all sides are the same length. There are also many options of rectangular tables that have power module port options.
Racetrack - The racetrack shape takes a rectangular table and rounds the corners. Looking down on the table, it literally looks like a racetrack with long straightaways and rounded corners on each end. This shape has an elegant design to it compared to the previous three shapes. These tables do not stack well as they have no corners to match up. Racetrack tables offer a measure of style that makes it the focus of the conference room. Also, these tables have options for power module ports as well.
Boat shaped - Boat shaped tables are rectangular tables with a twist. The corner are standard corners, but the length side flares out giving an oval shape along the long sides. Looking down from above, the table has the outline of an old style dingy, which was a small rowboat. This shape is a very stylized shape. It is often found in conference rooms of offices that have high end furniture throughout. They too come in a variety of options for power module ports.
Conference room tables come with a few material options. The most popular is laminate. Laminate helps reduce cost because of how it is made, shipped, and assembled on site. Laminate is extremely strong, so there is no need to worry about durability. It is stylish with many finish options. Another option is solid wood tables. They come in a variety of woods such as oak, cherry, and walnut and typically allow the natural wood colors to shine through in the finish. This style will cost more to ship as it is quite a bit heavier than laminate.
