The changing face of boardrooms

Not that long ago  boardroom tables were large  and imposing, often made of a dark wood or wood veneer, with equally austere looking black leather armchairs, usually with a dark wood frame.  The boardroom was an “executive only “ area, exclusively for the use of the very top level of the corporate management, in much the same way as  executive washrooms in the old days.

But nowadays, most business cannot afford to have an expensive room for the sole use of the top level executives and board members, and don’t feel the need to have to impress their clients or contemporaries to this level, as before.

Boardrooms have in many ways been replaced by multifunction meeting rooms, which can offer a wider range of staff a wider range of possibilities.  Multifunctional furniture can allow even the smallest person in the office, to reconfigure the meeting room into many things. A staff training room, a lecture room, examination room, function room, and presentation room are just some examples of the many uses to which these room can be put.

By using flip top tables and stacking meeting chairs, the furniture can be packed away into a small space, leaving just a few tables out for the client buffet.  These tables can then be brought out again, swung into action and locked in place for that big staff meeting.

A Buyers Guide to Folding and Flip-Top Tables

Folding and Flip Top Tables
Folding and Flip Top Tables

As a major office furniture dealer, CH Workspace can supply a wide range of folding and flip top tables. Before you start, you need to consider the type of table you need.
Folding tables generally have legs that fold together under the table top, although there are exceptions to this rule as we will see later.
Flip-top tables have legs that stay upright, but a table top that flips from the horizontal to the vertical position.
Both flip-top tables and folding tables are generally modular in design, so that a group of tables can be pushed together to form a larger unit, including half-moon and curved units for table ends etc. Because they are designed to be mobile, most folding and flip-top tables have wheels or castors to enable them to be moved easily.

Linking kits and storage/transport trolleys are usually available for all of these types of table, please make sure that you enquire and that you are aware of the prices – storage trolleys can be quite expensive in relation to the tables themselves.
