a new conference table can be a source of tremendous stress. After all, a
conference table is a major investment for many companies. If you happen to
make the wrong choice, it could impact your staff, management, and general work
output. How do you know which standing
conference table is the right one for you? Here are a few factors to
- Size. Starting
with size makes sense, since the size of the standing conference table you
choose will most likely be determined by the size of your conference room. As a
general rule, consider how many people will typically be around the table, and
then plan for roughly 1/3 more.
- Shape. This
is where things start to get tricky. A round standing conference table is a
great place for a few people to congregate briefly. However, a comparably sized
square table can provide a bit more workspace, and might be a better option for
longer meetings or meetings in which everyone is taking notes. Long rectangular
or "racetrack" shapes are less common for standing conference tables,
but may work for you depending on your circumstances. If you’re not quite sure
what you need, we recommend speaking with a CBI

vs. Modern. Whether you go for a traditional conference
table or something with cleaner, more modern lines and materials can be a
matter of taste. The standing conference table you select should match your
existing furniture and layout, as well as your general office culture. A law
firm might need a formidable, heavy wooden conference table, whereas a web
startup or clothing design company might go with a sleek and streamlined glass
concerns. Remember, a standing conference table is an investment in
your business. By making the best choice possible, you ensure that you won't
need to upgrade your conference space for a long time to come. That's why it's
important to be savvy about your choices. The last thing you want is a large
piece of furniture you regret.
