Warm and welcoming, your choice of dining chairs, bar stools and tables should produce a positive ambience.

As the first and last room a visitor sees, it’s crucial that a reception strikes an immediate, immaculate impression. First impressions form within ten seconds, and they count for a lot. Of course, different spaces have different requirements, making every reception area unique. For example, in a doctor’s waiting room, any dining chairs should be wipe-clean, supportive and neutral in appearance. These kind of considerations are all catered for by various items within our range, though you are, of course, encouraged to contact us for more detailed advice.

Reception Furniture Inspiration

Modern reception areas can be hugely casual or understated; corporate or boutique-like; public or private. In the likes of a hotel, the reception space may be used to conduct meetings, whether between businessmen and clients or tourists and holiday reps. Low stools often prove ideal in these scenarios. Situating occupants at dining height, these space-saving structures provide a comfortable resting spot, in addition to enabling the people standing behind to secure a view of any platform. Coffee tables are a natural accompaniment, and offer a smart spot for anything from paperwork to laptops, net books and more.

In addition to the role it plays in establishing a visual theme for your space, good furniture can be used to keep staff comfortable. Receptionists must retain a calm and professional demeanour at all times, and the simple use of good office chairs can make a significant difference to their performance, enhancing morale in addition to consolidating the polished look of any space.

A reception space may integrate a bar area, with commercial bar stools creating a beautiful trademark look. Heavy stable flat bases are often preferred as they can firmly root a design in place while projecting a clean, crisp and cool aesthetic. You may even wish to pair yours with one of our bar tables, with these items providing a compact, practical and sometimes even foldable alternative to bulky bars. Indeed, foldable or stackable furniture is commonly used in reception areas and indeed, any location which can double up as a hired space. Ideal for anything from weddings to setting-off points for excursions, stylish items of furniture that are easy to store away make for universal winners.

Regardless of location, the right reception furniture will bring it to life beautifully. Strong, stylish and much more besides, it will help to transform any location into one that is ripe for success.
