Frequently asked questions about Boardroom Furniture

What is a boardroom?

A boardroom is a designated meeting room in your office that offers privacy and can cater for a large group of people.

Does my office need a boardroom?

This depends on the objective of the boardroom. In most cases a long, rectangular table provides the best seating arrangement. A round table is great for rooms that can accommodate it.

What are the best boardroom tables for big offices?

Simply put, big boardroom tables are best for big offices. Depending on the size of the room, boardroom tables can seat upwards of 14 people comfortably.

What are the best boardroom chairs?

Comfortable and ergonomic chairs are always advised when it comes to choosing the right office furniture. Narrower chairs, or chairs without arms allow for additional seating where space is at a premium.

Should my boardroom have standing desks?

While standing boardroom tables have become popular of late, you’ll need to consider the typical participants of meetings held in the boardroom. If everyone is in their 20’s and early 30’s and meetings are typically short, then standing desks are a great option due to their health benefits. If your boardroom generally hosts long meetings, or caters for more “experienced” attendees then comfortable, ergonomic seating will be a better choice.
