Why Do You Need This Table?
The conference table is an essential part of a conference room. The location of the table along with where who sit could indicate how the conference could go. The shape of the conference table could be directly related to the end result.
There are inherent and implied meanings associated with the round conference table. One of them is to signify that everyone sitting at the table is equal. King Arthur definitely thought so. It appeared as if no one was in charge. This is was irrespective of a named leader.
Advantages of a round conference table
- It provides a sense of comfort and positive environment in the conference room. A square or a rectangle table may not be as reassuring or comforting
- In case more members have to be added to the conference, just chairs need to be added to the round table. The luxury is not available on square or rectangle table. One could be forced to sit at an awkward angle at the corner of the square or rectangle table.
- This is the perfect shape of a conference table when collaborative activities have to be done. Customer interactions and joint decision making can be done fairly impeccably on a round conference table.
Disadvantages of a round conference table
- They can cause tipping dangers if they stand on a single centre pedestal
- Lack of personal space for laptop or note pads and stationary
- Too big a table would mean too much distance between the people
- Distance is more across the table. So the voice might not carry over too much. This leads to inconvenience to the speaker or the presenter.
Why prefer the round conference table over others?
The place where the people who are part of the conference are seated and the seating positions are important. On a square table, in case there are too fewer people are too many people are always disadvantages. Too fewer people make the square and rectangle people look empty. Too many people and some will have the awkward and uncomfortable corner of the table.
With a round table, everyone can be evenly placed around the table, each person equidistant from one another and everyone can see each other. The round conference table literally takes preference over the tables for this purpose.
Conference rooms are not just for conferences. They could be used for meeting up with clients, conducting interviews and training the employees. The key is in the presentation. The presentation could also depend on the over all design of the room and the feeling that it gives out. Positive vibes are given out when the room is positive and does not in any way cause discomfort or a sense of uneasiness. The round conference table most definitely adds to the aesthetic sense. The more attractive and well decorated it is, the better for everything associated with it.
The ambience and the unique character of the room could depend on the furnishing and the decor. The decision of choosing the appropriate conference table should not be taken lightly. Since the focal point of the conference room is the conference table, it should be picked keeping in mind the room in which it is placed. The room should not take up the whole room as such, neither should it stand in the corner of the room in a discreet and indistinguishable manner. The factors related to the room that should be taken into consideration include lighting, the colour of the walls and floor, dimensions, doors, walls and ceiling height, etc. The connecting ports and phone jacks must be at a convenient distance from the table.
Conference tables today come in all shapes and sizes. The most popular shapes are round and oval. A regular conference table is mostly sixty inches wide and 24 inches of depth. The final finishing of the table is mostly monogamy. The rich look is essential. Video conferences take place too. The company cannot afford to have a conference room that is by any standard less impressive or ordinary looking. The first item to spruce up in order to liven the over all look of the room is the conference table.
Price range of the round conference tables
The price of a table will depend on what it is made up of. Whilst ordinary wood would be of average price, teak and red wood would cost a lot more. The diameter and the circumference have a bearing on the price as well.
A round table of forty-eight inches diameter and medium cherry thermally fused laminate (TFL) begins at the price of two hundred and seventy dollars. when additional features and benefits such as superior resistance to stains and scratches come at an extra cost. Round storable conference tables (med oak) cost around 380 dollars.
