3 Basic layouts for large Conference Tables:
This is the classic style that most are familiar with. A large oval or rectangular table is surrounded by chairs on both sides and ends. Most Board of Director meetings, and committee meetings use this style. This set up promotes interaction during the meeting. Stoneline Designs boat shaped conference tables are slightly rounded on the longer sides to provide a better line of sight between the conference attendees. We allow 30″ per chair when possible with a minimum of 27″.
We recently found a great site that creates unique designs on glass: www.FlorindaMaria.com. This company hand paints designs on glass and glass table tops.
The artists paint on the underside of the glass so that the table is both beautiful and still functional. Check out their gallery to see more of their one of a kind pieces.
Nothing cheers up a cold day like a hot cup of tea. But it can be hard to get good tea when you’re at your desk all day. The Tea Table Blog has an excellent post on how to make good tea at the office. Here at Stoneline Designs we have both coffee and tea drinkers among us. We agree 100% with the Tea Table Blog that facilities to make tea are all too rare in most offices, and that a coffee maker is no substitute. The residual flavor is so strong that your tea will taste like weak coffee, not tea.
Game designer James Owen Lowe incorporated Stoneline’s Cessina coffee table into his design for a Half-Life 2 mod which appeared in the independent film Death In Charge. Lowe says: “The game itself is called “Blood Splattered Corpse Orgy,” and will be set in a bright, cheery upper middle class suburban home. Then the player kills some zombies, and all sorts of parts fly hither and thither.”
