Reception Furniture FAQs

Why is it important make sure your reception area looks inviting?

  3. Your reception area and office furniture should be a welcoming area, which will be beneficial for both visitors and employees alike.

How do I choose the right office sofa?

  1. Measure: Start with measuring the space you have and then browse our selection of office sofas.
  2. Space: Try to leave at least 30 cm on each side of the reception sofas and keep away from heaters or radiators.
  3. Delivery access: Consider if there are any delivery access issues from the street entrance to your reception area. Especially if you are on the second, third or forth floor. Some sofas have removable armrests to make this access easier.
  4. Design: Selected a few reception sofas you like, that fit the space and are within budget.
  5. Materials: Decide what type of material you would like. For very high use areas consider a wipeable vinyl seat and fabric back. For executive sofas leather will be more suitable.
  6. Colour swatches: Contact Spaceist for commercial fabric, vinyl or leather colour swatches. Colours can include reds, blues, greens, oranges and light and dark colours like light grey, dark grey and tan.
  7. Power: Consider adding power and charging socket to the front, end or top of the armrest.
  8. Ordering: Once you are happy with your selection email us and we can process the order for you and delivery and install the sofa to you.

What materials are the reception desks made from?

There are three main materials a reception desk can be made from, glass, laminated wood and metal. Each material comes in several styles and shapes from straight, corner and U-shaped.

What is the most popular material?
The laminated wood material is the most popular because it is hard wearing and wipeable and is suitable for a busy reception.

What materials are office sofas made from?

  • Wood frame: Most commercial office sofas are made using a hard wood frame which is then upholstered in several different density upholstery foams.
  • Graded foams: Because the seat and back of the sofa have different wear rates the foams are graded for firmer foam on the seat and slightly softer on the back.
  • Fabric, faux leather or leather: This means the sofa will be comfortable and will last a long time. Once the foam has been fitted a contract grade faux leather, fabric or leather material is upholstered over the top.
