Buying factors to consider

How will you use the office reception area furniture?

Consider how much space you have to work with and where the furniture will be placed. Also, what is the interior décor of your reception and what type of clients come into your building? When you begin to answer these questions you’ll visualize the list of requirements the furniture needs to have.

For example, you may need a lot of seating if foot traffic is heavy in your reception. However, if only 2-3 people wait at a time, then you can get away with more spacious furniture. Buying office reception furniture that meets your requirements leads to a better end result.

Type of furniture

You need to consider what type of furniture you can buy for the reception area. Being aware of the choices enables you to add functionality and versatility to this central area of your building. Here are the most common options:

Lounge chairs: these are for single person sitting and are very comfortable. Guests will not mind waiting for longer periods of time when sitting in one of these chairs. They are typically made from leather, or man-made leather and have spacious armrests. However, they take up quite a bit of space so make sure you have the room.
Lounge sofas: they provide the same comfort as lounge chairs, but offer seating for more than one person. Therefore, more people can wait in your reception area while feeling relaxed. However, lounge sofas are quite big so consider the amount of space that’s required.
Reception desk: still don’t have a reception desk? Then you should invest in one and we offer some of the most impressive models around. You’ll notice that reception desks differ from regular ones. They are bigger and have a tall counter where the receptionist can interact with the client.
Reception table: consider investing in a reception table where you can place magazines and refreshments for guests while they wait. A few readable magazines will help pass the time, which means they will be more willing to wait for longer.


Make sure you have enough funds to kit out the entire reception area instead of sinking the funds in one furniture type. We offer good value reception area furniture so you can afford to create a professional looking point of entry to the office. Also, consider buying the packages where tables and seating is packed in one. That’s the best way to make full use of your budget. We love to do a deal.


Think about the interior décor of your reception area so you can pick furniture that matches. It would be odd if the furniture was modern, but the interior décor has an old school type look. Trendy looking furniture is the way to create a good first-impression. Customers want to do business with forward thinking brands that are in touch with modern times and furniture contributes towards that.


Choose furniture that will last a long time. You need to inspect the furniture when it arrives, and check for any faults and defects. Look for good, long warranties to give you peace of mind. We state the length of our warranty in the product description, most are 3 to 10 year warranties.


Think about what fabric you are going for and have the same consistency throughout the entire reception area. Some fabrics are harder to clean than others, which should go into your thought process. Black leather, or man-made leather is a typical choice, but you might want to go for bright colours if you want to create a playful brand image.


Q. Can I use furniture from my office for the reception area?

A. You could, but it won’t provide the best results – it depends on what you have to work with. However, office reception furniture is better suited to the intended use. For example, lounge chairs and sofas are better than placing office chairs that might not be the most impressive way of welcoming your guests.
