Where to Buy a Reception Desk in 2020

Reception desks are the first thing that guests, clients and potential investors see when they enter your office. This area of the office is very important, as it sets the tone for the company, as well as offering a first impression to anyone visiting the business. Whether you’re moving to new premises this year, or you’re looking to revamp your office space, the reception area is a good place to start. If you’re worried about how to go about finding a reception desk, never fear, as we’ve done some digging and found three options for you to get a couple of quotes from. 

How To Design an Impressive Reception Area

Before looking at the correct desk for the space, it helps to look at a couple of tips to ensure that you are designing an impressive area that first with the overall aesthetic of the company. Three components for you to think about include space, colour and light. If you know how much space you’re working with, which colours would be complementary to the rest of the office, plus you’re aware of the levels of natural light in the space, your buying decisions will ultimately be a bit more rational and well thought out. Ask for second opinions from members of management or other members of the team, to make sure you’re optimising the space for what you have to work with.

Based out of JHB, Cape Town and Dubai, it’s clear that this furniture company is on the up, increasing their footprint and client base beyond traditional borders in South Africa. While reception areas are not their speciality per se, they are able to hook you up with architects, interior designers and other members of the building industry, regardless of what your needs are. Expect a hefty price tag, which is well worth it considering the quality of their products.
