Azurea reception counters get a boost

One of our best selling modular reception counters have been given a boost with the addition of a stunning dark finish, as well as the existing cherry and white oak.

Many of our executive ranges are available in this rich dark wood finish, so now the reception area can match the rest of the office.

As before all of the modules in this range are available from stock, and can be delivered and installed within a matter of days. 

The modular nature of this range means that we can come up with a wide choice of configurations and layouts to suit your space, and can produce 3 D renditions of your reception area in a matter of hours.

Despite the Azurea counters look and feel of a bespoke and therefore expensive reception counter, the pricing is extremely competitive, even for a modular system.  The detailing in the front panels and the frosted glass  reception counter tops give this range a stylish appeal mostly found in much more expensive reception systems.

Receptions areas can be designed for one or many persons, with enclosed counter units or open desk level areas.

A Buyers Guide to Reception Furniture

Optima Reception Desk
Optima Reception Desk

Space is one of the biggest limiting factors when designing most reception areas. People often try to get as much as possible into a small space, but the resulting effect is not always as expected – it can look very cramped. The first decision to make is whether you want a simple reception desk or a full reception counter. A reception desk can be a standard office desk with a raised counter top facing the customer. This can be useful if you have a reception area in an open plan office, for example in an estate agency. A good example of a reception desk is the Elite Optima, which matches their standard ranges of office furniture. This is often used when there are few visitors to the reception area and the person occupying the desk has other duties, eg telephonist, general assistant.
