Modern reception furniture needs to maximise space, look great and be super durable. Our modern office sofas are good looking and hard wearing. They come in standard and bespoke sizes for a perfect fit - from 2 & 3 seater office reception sofas to corner seating, U shaped, L shaped and high back booths. We even offer bespoke sizes and brand colour matching - so your new seating will blend seamlessly with your space.

How much space do I need for a 3 seater reception sofa? 3 seaters are 200cm to 250cm wide and you need to leave at least 20cm at each end. The total space is between 240cm & 290cm.

What is the standard seat height of an office sofa? 40cm is standard seat height. If the seating will be used for a meeting a 45cm height is more comfortable.

What types of office sofas are there?

What are the different types of office reception sofas?

Corner or L shaped - familiar to most people from the home environment, ultra-flexible corner seating is designed in an L shape configuration which can have the arm of the L on the left or right-hand side, according to the shape of the room.

Straight - traditional office reception seating where people sit in a row. These come in two, three and four-seat configurations allowing you to furnish small and large spaces easily. They can be mixed and matched - try one four-seater against one wall or two smaller seats facing each other.

High back or booth - this type of modern seating is perfect for multi-use areas and breakout spaces. High back seating or chairs can create extra privacy and quiet spaces in open-plan workspaces and allow people to make phone calls or conduct meetings without disturbing others.

Modular - the most flexible option, modular seating arrangements can be customised to fit the space. They can be used to create interesting shapes, configured for the tightest of spaces and easily moved to allow multiple groups to make efficient use of the same space.

What types of material can be used?

What types of material can be used?

This depends on which sofa you choose. Popular options include:

Wool fabric - an environmentally friendly choice, wool is naturally stain-resistant with a very natural feel and comes in a great range of colours. Choose from plain colour and weave to more textured and patterned material.

Synthetic fabric - these are extremely hard wearing and are great for heavy usage or high traffic areas like schools, hospitals and very busy office breakout areas. Synthetic fabrics are stain-resistant, easy to clean and can usually be wiped down with a damp cloth or sponge.

Faux leather or vinyl - the style and practicality of leather at a fraction of the cost. With stain-resistant surfaces, these materials are very hard wearing and can be wiped down with a damp cloth. Usually available in brighter colours that you can achieve with real leather makes vinyl an ideal choice for a sofa for an office, school or college.

Leather - this type of seating is the most luxurious of all our furnishing materials and goes with every decor - traditional or modern. It will continue to look better as it ages.

FAQs

How long does an office sofa last?

It’s difficult to calculate an average lifespan for office seating as it really does depend on build quality and usage, both of which can vary considerably. Like all workplace furniture, it depends on the exact space it’s placed in and the treatment it gets, both of which can make a huge difference to longevity.

But as a ballpark, quality commercial seating should stay looking great and feeling comfortable for at least 5 years in busy, high-traffic areas - and possibly much longer than that in a quieter or less frequently used space.

To keep your fabric seating looking great we recommend you hoover the cushions and armrests on a regular basis. This removes any dirt and dust which can breakdown the fabric over time. If you have a faux leather units wipe down with a damp cloth with a mild detergent to remove dirt and light marks.

Is a sofa better than chairs for waiting rooms?

Whether you go for waiting room sofas or chairs in a waiting area really depends on the space available and how busy it is. A sofa can look better in a space with lighter traffic but isn’t always the best option for seating a lot of single visitors. Where there is a steady flow of people coming and going you may prefer to offer individual chairs.

Consider armless seats to maximise the usage and add thin or wide armrests to separate users.

How much does office reception seating cost?

Our stylish, commercial-grade furniture is surprisingly affordable - a three-seater specifically designed for an office starts at £1,500. Commercial units use much higher grades of fabric and foam than domestic furniture and are designed and built to withstand all-day use.

Domestic seating is a cheap option but will start to look tired after a short period. Remember to buy once and the best you can afford to save wastage and reduce the amount of furniture going to landfill.

How much space do I need for a corner office seating?

A small, four-seater corner unit starts at 227 x 227cm and gives you the equivalent of 2 two-seater and a corner seat. We recommend that you leave at least a 20cm gap at each end which means that you need to allow a total space of around 260 x 260cm.

Consider modular seating for extra flexibility now and if you’re planning to move in the future. Corner units do not suit all receptions because the corner seat rarely gets utilised unless serval people are seated. Consider replacing the corner seat with a low coffee table to reduce the cost and make the unit more usable.

What is the hardest wearing fabric for waiting room seating?

Stylish faux leather is the hardest wearing sofa material - it is stain resistant and wipes clean. Remember that a synthetic commercial grade fabric can have a rub test rating of 250,000. Domestic seating fabrics have a rub rating of only around 25,000 which makes them unsuitable for workspaces.

Does reception seating need to be comfortable?

Surprisingly, comfort doesn’t need to be the number one consideration for modern furniture. Most modern seating is used for very short periods so the priority is that they are great looking, hard-wearing and long-lasting.

Of course, they are comfortable, but they are generally designed not to be too soft and over-cushioned, both for ease of getting on and off them and to help visitors to feel more comfortable in workplace environments.

Can I order without armrests?

Armrests are a popular feature and with good reason, they’re comfortable and practical. But in modern commercial premises space is often an issue, as well as access. Not having armrests can allow you to almost double up on seating where space is really tight or make better use of space with modular or L-shaped seating options.

If access is an occasional problem, some specific types of seating can be specially made with removable arms to solve this issue.

What fabric colours are available?

A sofa is a large piece of office furniture and needs to work with your existing decoration. Whether you want to go for a subtle match or a bright contrast, we’re happy to tell you that almost every colour you can imagine is possible, from red, blue, green, grey, black, white, purple and orange.

A swatch service is available to help you decide and we can even help with colour matching - perhaps you’d like to match your logo design?

Can I match my brand colours?

Yes! There is a library of 1000s of fabric colours available in reds, greens, blues, oranges and greys which means colour matching should be possible for almost every brand. Ask our furniture experts for help with colour matching and colour swatches - call 020 8840 6298.

How long does it take to order?

Our high quality, commercial-grade furniture is generally built to order to your own custom specifications. We would, therefore, recommend that you allow between 4 to 6 weeks depending on the type of seating you have chosen and the fabric finishes. However, if you need something in a hurry we may well be able to help you.

For this or any other queries it is always worth asking our furniture experts - simply call us on 020 8840 6298.
