What Does Your Reception Say About You?

A light and open reception area
Once upon a time, a reception was thought of as an over sized desk for an overworked administrator - but this is an attitude that seems to have been left well behind. Your reception is now seen as the first port of call for any guest to your business, and it's an important opportunity to make a first impression.

Visitors to your business need to feel welcome and comfortable in your reception, and whilst we know nothing will beat a friendly personal greeting - a welcoming space will go a long way. It goes without saying that the more welcome somebody is made to feel, the more likely they are to want to return - and this applies perfectly to your reception area.  
A basic greeting point

Your greeting space is also the perfect opportunity to illustrate your businesses' personality. You're likely to have a large variety of things in there, so the scope for customisation is huge. You can choose the finish and style of the reception desk and coffee tables, the fabrics, colours and designs of the seating and much more, so you need to make sure that these reflect your company ethos and portray the right messages. With so much to choose from, you can click on any of the images in this article to browse our site and the huge range of reception furniture on offer.

A Lesson in Education Furniture

Click on the images to visit our site
I'm sure we all remember sitting in school at those wobbly, marked tables with the chewing gum stuck to the bottom. And there's the chairs: unsteady, uncomfortable and with a couple of screws loose. Not exactly the best of your memories from your days in education, but that doesn't have be the case anymore. We have a huge selection of furniture that is ideal for any learning environment - from reconfigurable and shaped tables through to a selection of seating options. 

IT equipment with a difference!

The latest selection of computer desking is becoming one of our most popular ranges, with integral screens allowing the user to switch between computer and paper work. As well as being an excellent space saver, the Smart Desks offer extra security and protection for technical equipment. These are perfect for integrating flexible computer work into your students' learning process, without having to potentially jeopardise other key elements of their education. 

Stackable and reconfigurable tables
More basic tables are also very popular of course, with stacking options allowing you to store and re-position them with ease. A variety of shapes and sizes encourage the creation of interesting configurations in your classroom, to help with group projects or individual work. 

Bases and colours to suit everyone!
Seating is an important part of any learning environment - particularly in schools, where we all know how fidgety children can be at the best of times! If they have chairs that fit their needs, they are more likely to relax and be comfortable in their education. Our selection of classroom seating ranges from age 3 - adult, so we will have something to suit every classroom. The colour options on offer also provide you with flexibility to mould your classroom as you please - with a selection of bright and exuberant colours, or more dulcet and calming tones.

Glass Designs

Veneer tables with glass tiles
One recent trend that we've noticed is the increasing popularity of glass office furniture - whether for a boardroom, an executive desk or a reception segment, the ranges of glass furniture currently available are some of the nicest we've seen. 

It's hard to say exactly what makes this style so popular, but we've got a few ideas as to why we love glass so much. Glass helps to make a room feel light and more open, so if you're a bit stuck for space or want to make your office feel more welcoming then the use of clear glass is ideal for you. Alternatively, coloured glass provides the shine associated with glass designs, without necessarily requiring as much cleaning effort!

Another variation of glass designs that are proving very popular is when it's put to use sparingly. For example, glass cable management tiles in boardroom tables or glass shelves on reception units help to keep the prices down, but still offer the stylish image provided by glass designs. 

The nature of glass desks allows the base to be seen more prominently, which has led to a big advancement in the development of a great range of styles. Glass desk tops with veneer or MFC bases provide a range of grand and executive options, whilst the selection of chrome legs that are becoming increasingly popular are also a fantastic way of adding variety to your office.

Coloured glass tops are available
 There is a huge variety of glass options on offer to allow everyone the opportunity to make use of it in their office, no matter what their budget. The development of new production techniques means that more interesting and varied styles of glass furniture can be manufactured much cheaper than ever before, making the designs much more widely available. 

There is a very eclectic mix of glass designs available, so if you click on any of the pictures you will be taken to various parts of our site to browse the options and styles that are available.
