Choosing the Best Furniture for Your Reception Area

Whether you have clients visiting the office or potential hires waiting to be interviewed, you want your guests to have a positive first impression while waiting in your reception area. The reception area in your building should be the cleanest, most taken care of area and should always be ready for guests. If you are looking to redesign your reception area, you may be wondering which furniture to choose from.

At PVI, we understand that choosing office furniture can be overwhelming; which is why we have outlined simple tips to follow next time you are choosing reception area furniture.

What to Look for in Reception Furniture

Aside from cost, there are several things you should be looking for next time you are searching for reception furniture.


Style – first and foremost, you want your guests to have an understanding of your business the minute they walk through the door. Choosing office furniture that expresses your business and matches the overall theme will help in creating a lasting impression for clients, new hires, and investors! Couches and chairs come in many different materials and colors that can dramatically change the look and feel of your area.

You also want the style and color of your tables and desks to all match to create a uniformed look. PVI supplies beautiful coffee tables and end tables that can fit in any office. Our Office Source reception tables come in:

  • Cherry
  • Mahogany
  • Espresso
  • Modern Walnut

Durability – your waiting area is a higher-traffic area compared to other areas in your office. You may ask guests to take a seat while they wait, resulting in quick wear and tear to couches and chairs. Choose a material that is durable and will last for years to come! We recommend a material that can be easily cleaned and is dark. Accidents happen; coffee can be spilled or outside mud may brush against your furniture. Choosing a material that is easy to clean will help your furniture last longer and prevent noticeable damage.

Comfort – finally, you want your guests to be comfortable. This not only means choosing furniture that is comfortable to sit on, but adding tables for guests to put drinks or notepads on will help make them feel more comfortable.
