Boardroom Tables

The origin of office boardroom tables dates back to the 16th century. The ‘board’ (that hunk of wood) was the name of the table at which a council met and it came to signify the meeting of such a council around this table. In todays society, the ‘board’ (the table) is a metonym for the body of persons in charge of some organisation. Along with the cold steel and leather chairs, gone are the boardrooms traditional need to be overbearing and oppressive. Softer more welcoming approaches inspired by dining rooms has gained traction. This has elevated natural materials such as wood and marble to corporate standards. Typical castor-wheeled meeting chairs are giving way to chairs you can sink into such as linens, velvets and blended cottons being the upholstery fabric choice. Business owners are also investing in an informal approach to a sit-down, borrowing from the relaxed atmosphere of living rooms.
