The humble table has evolved. Beyond traditional dining tables and side tables, the category now encompasses a variety of surfaces that aid both solo work and group collaboration. Café tables enable working on the go or in social environments. Conference tables may be permanent statement pieces or lightweight and mobile accessories for a dynamic workspace. Outdoor tables provide versatility to weather the elements while getting users closer to nature.
With today’s mobile working styles, café tables take on new importance. Beyond artfully accommodating a cup of coffee, café tables facilitate creativity and efficiency. They may be circular or square, seated or standing height, made of lightweight composite materials or classic wood. Most have a light, streamlined aspect and many incorporate eye-catching colors and unconventional materials like brushed metal or faux concrete.
From statement pieces to more subtle options, conference tables vary in form and function. Choose from glass, solid wood, mixed materials, and more. Many contemporary conference tables feature integrated power and data.
Includes study carrels (partially enclosed spaces with a table or work surface), ergonomically designed student desks, and other tables tailored to education settings.
Designed for infrequent and varied use. Small, light, sometimes decorative tables of varying heights that can be easily moved as the occasion requires.
A variety of work-centered surfaces that may be chosen or customized to suit a given organization’s unique needs. They may be low for seated working, high for standing, bi-level, or adjustable. Some feature incorporated storage, integrated power/data, or rolling casters for mobility. Pull-up tables offer a compact surface that can be pulled up to any seat for an impromptu workspace.
Designed for use on patios or other outside areas. Usually weather-resistant. May include casters or glides.
When mobility is paramount, training tables provide quick set-up and easy take-down/storage. Many models feature rolling casters and flip-up/nesting functionality. Some are also modular, with connecting/ganging options for large meetings or collaborative sessions. Markerboards and dividers may also be incorporated, and some offer innovative options like easy conversion into a recreation table for Ping-Pong or other table games.
