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Boardrooms have in many ways been replaced by multifunction meeting rooms, which can offer a wider range of staff a wider range of possibilities.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.
