An office coffee table adds a welcoming touch to a reception area, and is useful for informal meetings between colleagues and for entertaining visitors.
Tips for choosing an office coffee table
Take some measurements. If you have a sofa or chairs in your reception area, you will get a more stylish effect if the coffee table is shorter than the sofa. The table should be roughly level with the top of the sofa and chair cushions.
If you’re not sure what size to order, find a cardboard box or two and join them together to make an approximation of a table. Leave the pretend “office coffee table” in place for a few days and evaluate whether it works with the rest of your office furniture, and if there’s enough space for it.
Choose a table that suits the style of the room, and consider co-ordinating it with another piece of furniture. At Paperstone we stock some office coffee tables which are part of a co-ordinated range.
Alternatively, create a contrast between shapes. If the rest of the room is full of curved lines, a square or rectangular table will add interest.
