What furniture should I buy for the reception area?
Invite your visitors to wait comfortably with reception furniture from Hertz Furniture. Choose from our full range of quality reception seating, including modular couches and guest chairs. We offer tables and reception desks to suit any style lobby, from traditional to modern.

What lobby furniture should you buy? Your reception area furniture should include great seating as well as smaller items including coat racks, umbrella stands and magazine racks. With 45 years of experience in the furniture industry, you know you can trust Hertz Furniture to give you everything you need in the office.

Why is reception furniture important?

Every office needs to have its own character. Your guests and clients are going to understand the character of your company through your reception furniture because that is the first thing they see when they come into your space. When it comes to your office, you only have one chance to make a good first impression, so choose your reception furniture very carefully.

While individual taste is important, you need to keep the purpose of your office in mind. If you're furnishing an executive office, you will probably want to choose pieces that project your professionalism and experience. On the other hand, if you're purchasing for a pediatrician, then Mickey Mouse and Co. just might be the way to go.

How do you choose reception chairs?

One thing every reception area needs is reception seating. Because clients might show up early, it is important to make sure that you choose the most comfortable seating you can find to make every wait a comfortable one. Your guests and clients will definitely appreciate it.

Should I get accent tables?

If you have the space and the budget, you can strategically place some end tables between the chairs so you can promote your company or services with pamphlets or brochures. If you don't have reading material of your own, then you can put out magazines or newspapers so clients can pass the time in an enjoyable way. If you don't have the floor space to spare for end tables, you can try some compact magazine racks and literature stands.

What should I look for in a reception desk?

A well-planned reception desk that takes your secretary's needs into consideration will give your office a big efficiency boost. If your office is the type where clients are constantly coming up to your secretary's desk to ask questions, then a desk with a reception counter is highly recommended. This will ensure the secretary's privacy. For secretaries who work with confidential information, such as medical records or tax forms, a high counter can be crucial.

Something else to look for in reception desks is good storage. That means file drawers, regular drawers, locks, and computer-friendly features. Wire-management grommets in the desktop are a big plus. Your secretary doesn't want a wire-cluttered desktop any more than you do. If you really want to make sure that she gets what she needs, ask her what her preferences are before you do any reception-desk shopping. She's the one who's going to be using it – and she knows what she needs in order to function at maximum efficiency.

What will make my waiting room better?

Now that the basics are covered, you can go on to the smaller details. Umbrella stands can be a really convenient item to have in your reception area. They will keep your other reception furniture from getting wet because your clients had nowhere else to put their dripping umbrellas. Coat racks are great for similar reasons. Another item that might seem trivial but totally isn't is a waste receptacle, a.k.a. trash can. Although these may sound unsightly, they need not be. As a matter of fact, some of them are really quite attractive. If you want to have an eco-friendly office then get some recycle cans for the staff lounge and cafeteria.

If some of this sounds confusing, don't think you're clueless. Choosing office furniture can be quite a challenge. At Hertz Furniture, we have a whole team of design experts ready to help you find the best reception furniture for your needs. Whether you're refurbishing an entire office or just looking to upgrade an existing floor plan, Hertz Furniture will be happy to assist you.

Looking for some distinctive, functional accessories for your school or office? Glaro has sleek recycling bins and trash cans that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Attractive professional designs make these waste receptacles suitable for a high-class business environment.

Glaro accessories are made in the USA. When you purchase Glaro Inc. umbrella stands and coat racks from Hertz Furniture, you get a reliable 25-year warranty. With appealing designs that will fit with almost any decor, reliable quality and functional configurations, these accessories are just what you need to put the finishing touches on an office or school.

In a serious law office or accounting firm, every piece of furniture must blend in with the overall style of the space. While function is very important, style cannot be overlooked, even when it comes to garbage bins or umbrella holders. Glaro accessories have lustrous finishes that will blend in seamlessly with the elegance of a workspace. With different metal stains, recycle bins and coat hooks can be coordinated to drawer pulls or other furniture accents.

No one wants to carry around a damp coat when it is snowing or raining outside. Having a convenient place for clients, visitors and employees to leave their outerwear demonstrates a company's regard for people. Rather than having to carry jackets and hats around all day, with the obvious risk of losing them or forgetting them somewhere, a coat rack provides a place where wet outerwear can dry while people are in their meetings or appointments.

The right coat rack configuration depends on how much space there is in a building. In a place where there is a separate area designated for hanging jackets, wall-mounted hooks are a good choice. If a high capacity is required, wall-mounted racks with hangers are the ideal selection. When there is no designated area, it is still helpful to have a hanging space which can be pulled out on rainy days. Portable models are great because they can be wheeled out when needed and left in storage the rest of the time.

Jackets aren't the only accessories that need a special place when there is inclimate weather. When it is raining outside, many people will come in to an office or school with umbrellas. Walking around all day with a wet umbrella can be quite inconvenient. Glaro umbrella stands come in a selection of styles so you can find the perfect capacity and color for your purposes.

Slotted cylindrical umbrella holders keep water contained in the bottom so there are no marks or puddles on the floor. Models without slots can be used as waste receptacles when the weather is nice. Water trays on the bottoms of open models collect moisture. Many Glaro models are designed to hold both mini and full-size umbrellas.

Having conveniently-placed trash cans is always helpful, but not all garbage cans are fit for a business environment. Glaro garbage bins and wastebaskets have a subtle yet elegant design that is appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use. They are available in a huge selection of colors which can blend in with any decor. Alternatively, some schools and businesses might prefer vibrant colors that are easily noticeable.

When figuring out a proper waste disposal program for your space, why not go green with some organized recycling bins. Glaro recycle bins come with clear labels and special slots which make it easy to identify what they are designated for. Models are available with multiple slots in the lid so a single unit can be used to divide materials. Fire-safe, all-weather construction makes Glaro waste receptacles a perfect fit for any location.

Let the right finishing touches complete your look with umbrella holders, coat racks and commercial trash cans from Glaro. This elegant collection will fit well in a school or business. If you need help choosing the ideal model or determining exactly what capacity you require, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.
