Our office furniture collection includes many products that facilitate smooth meetings. We offer podiums and lecterns, as well as mobile AV carts for multimedia accessories. Whiteboard cabinets are also essential when you need to convey information clearly.
The easiest way to choose furniture for a meeting space is to start in the center of the room and work your way out. An attractive conference table sets the tone for the space while providing the necessary work surface so executives have a place to keep their notes, laptops and writing implements. Before choosing a table, a basic layout for the space should be mapped in order to determine how large of a work surface can fit in the room with all of the other office furniture.
What shape conference table should I get?
Elegant conference tables come in a variety of shapes. The rectangular shape is a classic favorite. A boat shape has a similar seating capacity to rectangular tables of comparable dimensions but with softer rounded edges that also provide each person with a bit more space. For a small meeting area inside an executive office, round conference tables have a friendly feel which puts all professionals on equal footing because no one is sitting at the head of the table.
Quality and reliability are essential when purchasing anything that is meant for long term use. Our conference tables come from top office furniture manufacturers including DMI, High Point and Mayline. They feature elegant finishes in a choice of natural wood hues. With this selection, you can coordinate colors with other pieces of furniture in the room. For the ultimate in coordination, we even have models that are part of conference furniture collections so you can get a perfect match. Many models feature solid wood bases for super sturdy standing.
What are the best chairs for a meeting room?
Whether you are negotiating a merger, signing a contract with a new client or planning the next quarter's sales strategy, comfortable seating is essential for a successful meeting. When conference participants are supported properly, they can focus better on the task at hand, rather than being distracted by aches and pains. When choosing the ideal office chairs for any meeting space, particular attention should be paid to visual appeal, physical support and price.
The right office chairs depend on how large a conference table is and how many people you need to seat around it. Task chairs with swivel bases and casters make it easier to get in and out without asking other people to move if the table is crowded. They also feature some combination of adjustable ergonomic features which enable clients and colleagues to create a custom fit that will provide proper support for the duration of the meeting. Make sure to take note of cushion thickness as well.
For a coordinated professional space, make sure that chairs match the style of your table. We have a huge selection of upholstery materials and colors so it is easy to make sure that your space is adorned with complementary hues. If you are looking for something really special, our captains chairs have a touch of stately old-world elegance that will bring a unique appeal to your space. Tufted vinyl chairs and luxurious leather seating are available as well.
How can I make speakers more comfortable?
While many conferences are arranged so that everyone sits together around one table, on occasion one person will stand up and make a presentation to other meeting attendants. This arrangement enables the guest consultant or meeting organizer to be easily viewed and have a clear perspective of the whole room. Standing and presenting with no support and no appropriate place to put notes can be quite unpleasant. You can easily provide a comfortable space for a standing speaker with one of our great podiums.
Lecterns come in both wood and acrylic, so there are models that will fit-in well in any style of office. The Oklahoma Sound Corporation has a number of great models that include built-in microphones and speakers, so professionals will never have to strain their voices to be heard, even in a large meeting. For a sleek twist on the classic wood podium, you can choose a model that features an LCD screen on the front where a company logo, slides or pictures can be displayed. For those who would like to use a desktop computer while standing, the Balt PC podium is designed to support all desktop components and is a comfortable height for a standing speaker.
How can I store multimedia equipment in the office?
When multimedia presentations or video screenings are an essential part of an important meeting, a great AV cart is a must-have. The right arrangement will depend on what digital equipment is required. We have models that can support laptops, tabletop projectors, overhead projectors, document cameras and more. Some even include locking cabinets so equipment will stay secure throughout the workday. For video screenings, TV carts are available as well.
Do you need a whiteboard in the conference room?
Nothing is more frustrating than trying to explain a complex idea to a room full of people without visual aids. In order to ensure that a highly-visible surface is always available in your conference room for illustrative examples and explanations, you need a wall-mounted whiteboard. Our dry erase board cabinets feature functional white boards that are covered by elegant wood-hued doors which will blend in seamlessly with other conference furniture.
