Conference Room Table

Conference room tables

Conference room tables are typically priced at the higher end of the table spectrum. These tables are where people splurge a bit more than normal. The conference room is usually when a visitor receives a first impression of the company. It is important for the table to be aesthetically on point with the company brand and reflects professionalism, but it must also function efficiently function as a collaboration space and be comfortable enough for long meetings. There are many shapes, sizes, and features of a conference room table that can be combined to fit best with a company. There is no one-size-fits-all with conference room tables!

Conference rooms are also referred to as meeting rooms, because they allow for meetings without becoming a distraction to the rest of the office.

Conference room table shape

The shape of a conference room table depends on the function and the aesthetic you prefer. Round tables are typically used for smaller volumes of people and in more casual settings, such as in a huddle room intended for internal use. Rectangular conference room tables are among the most common because they are classic and can fit the largest number of people around them. A boat- or oval-shaped table often fits the same number of people as a rectangular table. However, these shapes can have fewer sharp corners and turn people inward toward the center, which can be more effective for collaborative discussions. Wedge tables, which are wider on one end and narrow gradually, are perfect for rooms with a TV. A wedge table allows everyone to see the screen just by swiveling their chairs rather than having to push away.

Conference room table size

The size of a table can dictate how many people it can seat. People typically want a few inches of space between them and whoever is sitting next to them, so it is best to plan around comfortability. For example, you can seat 4-6 people at a 30 x 60” table. Any more than that number and people will start feeling awkward. You also wouldn’t want only two people sitting at each end of a large table, as that would make it difficult to communicate.

Conference room table size

It’s also important to size the table to the room. This means choosing a table big enough to fill space in the room but small enough to leave ample aisles around the table for chairs and circulation. Typically, you want 3’ – 4’ on all sides of the table. If you have a credenza on one side, you’ll still want 3 ’ – 4’ from the table to the credenza. Room size can also dictate table shape. Narrow rooms usually require a long table while square rooms can house round or square tables.

Conference room table with power

Conference room tables can also include as many power options as you want, and power can be placed anywhere on the table that you’ll need it. Recessed power outlets with flush lids are great for when you want the power to disappear when it is not in use. A trough power set-up creates room for more receptacles, data ports, and other power options because of the way it is shaped. A new power type that is gaining traction is undermount power receptables. They stay out of the way, are easy to reach, and require no grommets set in the surface of the table.
