Make the most of your conference table investment, and avoid these five common mistakes:
The table is the wrong size for the conference room.
A table which is too large for a small conference room will feel cramped. If the overcrowding is extreme, it may even cause the room to be too warm during full meetings due to lack of airflow. On the other hand, a small conference table in a very large room will appear lost. Either way, a conference table which is the wrong size for the room may make meeting attendees feel uncomfortable. We recommend a minimum of 42″ around the conference table on all sides. This leaves room for chairs and to move around the room. 48″ of space is preferred for a spacious feel. Read more
When designing your conference table, there are several factors to consider.
How many chairs will there be? With a Rectangular or similar table, the placement of the pedestals will influence the seating on the long side of the top. We like to allow at least 30″ per chair (28″ minimum), and when possible we place pedestals in between seats. For instance on a 10′ table we would place pedestals 60″ apart for seating four people on the long sides. With 1 chair on each end, the 10′ table would seat 10 comfortably. At 12.5′ we would use 2 pedestals placed 87-90″ apart, depending on whether the top is a Rectangle or Boat shape top, and place 5 chairs on each side. Read more
The photo below depicts the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versailles. This unusual, large conference table was built to handle large meetings. The design allows attendees to gather around a central opening where the conference leaders are seated.
The Treaty of Versailles marked the end of World War I and also formed the League of Nations. Once again, a pivotal moment in history, and another large conference table is there!
Before shipping a custom designed table, our artisans assemble the table and make any adjustments necessary to make sure all the parts fit together perfectly.
For this oval conference table with brushed steel base and granite top, the process took artisans Rob, Bart, Mace and Brian almost three hours.
Pictured above is Stoneline Designs’ Quadrant Conference Table with brushed steel panels on a Maple frame. The large conference table top is made from our Patterned “Scratched” Glass. Companion pieces such as credenzas, pedestals, media cabinets, consoles and dining tables are also available. Read more
We received a thank you note from one of our customers this week. Here is what David had to say:
Monte-I wanted to send you a quick message regarding the conference table. As you know, I was a bit skepticle about paying the full amount of the table without ever having seen it. Having said that, the table blew me away. It is the most beautiful conference table I have ever seen. Our conference room is all glass and faces Tryon Street at the very heart of downtown Charlotte. It really is quite impressive. The table only enhances an already amazing room. For that, I want to thank you and assure you that I will be purchasing from you again soon.Thanks again.David
