Modern style is always a hot topic amongst interior designers and consumers alike, and staying up to date is essential! That being said, the arrival of 2013 has brought to light several hot new reception furniture trends that businesses should be aware of.

With space being at a premium, interior designers and office furniture professionals are regularly suggesting solutions for maximizing square footage. One of these tips is to build up instead of out. All to often wall space goes wasted that could be used for storage and accent furniture. This modern idea includes the use of overhead storage cabinets and hutches as opposed to low wall cabinetry which reduces the overall usable footprint of a waiting area. The good news is that this trend is just catching on. This means that most of the wall mounting products like presentation boards all feature a contemporary style that will keep your area at the forefront of the modern office furniture movement.

Trend 2: Beam Seating

Utilizing reception beam seating is an excellent way to save space and money while showcasing industry leading style. Top solutions include those from the OFM, Inc. NET series as well as the Sonic Beam Chair by Global Total Office. No matter your choice, Beam seating configurations are always an excellent way to earn your space a host of compliments. Some top models even offer the ability to add small office tables for added versatility.

Trend 3: Curved Reception Desks
