How to Choose the Right Conference Room Furniture

Posted on: November 27, 2016

When your employees or clients gather in your conference room, what’s their initial reaction? If you’re hoping to impress your employees or clients with a beautiful, comfortable, and functional space, the furniture is the most important aspect of the room. If you’re tasked with selecting conference room furniture, use these tips to help you select the best furnishings.

Qualities to Look for in Conference Room Furniture

As you begin your search, you’ll run across countless furniture options for your conference room. Remember to keep these points in mind as you decide what furniture to purchase.

Pleasant Aesthetics

Outdated or mismatched furniture pieces do no favors for your conference room, even if the furniture is still functional. In this fast-paced business world, the last thing you want is to come across as old fashioned.

On the other hand, if your conference room looks new, professional, and streamlined, your employees and clients will be impressed and have pride in their relationship with your company.


Cheap, uncomfortable furniture gives off the impression that you either don’t care or don’t have the funds to properly furnish your conference room. While you don’t want employees so comfortable that they fall asleep during meetings, your conference room furniture should feel luxurious enough to belong in the CEO’s office.

Remember, poorly designed furniture can make meetings physically uncomfortable. On the other hand, ergonomic conference room chairs and tables provide a distraction-free place to meet, prepare, and collaborate.


Even the most beautiful and comfortable conference room is useless if the furniture lacks the functionality you require. Your conference room table should be large enough to seat everyone while remaining proportional to the room’s size. For example, a smaller conference room may need a table for no more than eight people, while a larger space may need a table to seat 20 or more people.

The table you choose should also be the right shape to suit the purposes you have in mind. A round table is good for circulating documents or having discussions, while a traditional rectangular table is desirable for viewing presentations.
