2014 was an awesome year for conference room makeover projects. This year we saw a variety of super cool design trends that helped businesses take their meeting areas to the next level. In today's post we'll review 5 of those trends that are sure to be big in 2015 and beyond!
This year was all about powered conference room tables. Businesses were looking to add a high tech multi media capabilities in the boardroom with plug and play tables from brands like Global Total Office, Lesro, and Mayline. The ability to incorporate HDMI, USB, and phone inputs in table surfaces gives businesses the ability to improve meeting functionality and efficiency. This is one trend that's here to stay!
The high end modern appeal and luxurious look of glass in the conference room was no doubt one of this years hottest trends. Glass conference room tables offer a neutral look that makes adding matching accent furniture a breeze. While most of the glass conference tables for sale on the market were quite pricey, brands like OFM found success with their affordable solutions like the GT3977. These glass conference room tables shipped quick, installed easily, and helped businesses create head turning boardrooms.
It seemed interior design teams, businesses, and industry professionals alike grew tired of traditional conference table shapes like rectangular, oval, and round. That being said, this year we found that elliptical conference tables were the hottest shape on the market. The sleek curved sided design offers space saving appeal that helped businesses maximize boardroom square footage. Brands like Lesro and Global Total Office were the big winners in the elliptical table market. With collections like Mystic and Alba these hot brands provided affordable elliptical conference table models that businesses could enjoy without straining the corporate budget.
The industrial look was huge this year! More than ever businesses were looking for a commercial grade look that was best showcased by conference tables with metal legs. Surprisingly enough, metal legged conference tables were often more affordable than those with laminate and wood bases. This no doubt helped this hot trend gain momentum that is still in full swing. Look for more and more brands to bring metal legged conference table models to the market in 2015. The durability, functionality, and appeal is hard to top!
Turning the conference room into a versatile, multi-purpose work area was incredibly appealing to businesses in 2014. Why use your boardroom for meetings alone when the space can be simultaneously used for a corporate training area? When you think about it, it just makes sense! This years trending modular conference table configurations from brands like Global Total Office took off in popularity. Lines like Bungee and Junction saw big sales boosts as businesses simply couldn't turn down the incredible benefits. Modular table sets are reasonably priced, come in a variety of cool finish options, and work together to form some really neat configurations designed to meet a variety of applications at a moments notice.
