Traditional conference tables have consisted of room-spanning slabs that are good for sitting around and setting things on top. They are bulky, intimidating, utilitarian and often don’t even get used much for how much they cost. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Many modern offices are putting new, versatile conference table styles to good use. Here’s how you can bring your office conference room into the 21st century.
When something is modular it’s composed of many, standardized pieces that can easily be taken apart and rearranged. Modular conference tables are lightweight, durable, and reconfigurable. These tables are great if your office’s needs change from day to day. You can change your conference table to a shape that perfectly fits the needs of your next meeting or group training. As an added benefit, modular tables can be neatly stowed away in a fraction of the space and offer seamless wire and cable management integration.
Maybe it’s not reconfigurability that’s most important to your business, but mobility. Mobile conference tables come with the ability to roll or slide and be moved practically anywhere in the office. They’re far more lightweight compared to the behemoths that are traditional conference room tables. Plus, mobile office tables feature flip-tops for nesting, meaning that like modular tables they can be nested together in much smaller spaces. A flip-top nesting table can fit into a proverbial closet.
Modern Table Design
Modern conference tables are distinguished by their polished surfaces and angular forms. Sharp contrasting lines together with asymmetrical detail make these tables a perfect mashup of form and function. Common construction materials for modern conference tables include metal, glass and acrylic. Glass tables in particular are timeless and provide a sleek, streamlined look that easily blends in with its surroundings and architecture. If you’re looking for modern elegance and sophistication, glass is the best way to go.
