Conference room design

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I found a great site today that gives several examples of different ways to set up a meeting or conference room.  

Three of the styles that I liked are:

Boardroom Style

This is the classic style that most are familiar with.  A large oval or rectangular table is surrounded by chairs on both sides and ends. Most Board of Director meetings, and committee meetings use this style.  This set up promotes interaction during the meeting.  Stoneline Designs boat shaped conference tables are slightly rounded on the longer sides to provide a better line of sight between the conference attendees.

U Shape

A grouping of conference tables are set up in a U shape. The chairs are placed on the outside.  This style is good for discussion groups, committee meetings and  audio-video presentations.  Make sure there is a minimum of 24" of space per person.

Hollow Design

Several tables are arranged in a square or rectangle with a center opening.  The chairs are place around the outside of the tables.  This set up is good for large meetings, especially if a larger table is not available.  When set up as a square, this layout provides good visual lines for each person in attendance. 

Of course, we believe the best way to seat a large group is by using one of  Stoneline's many large conference tables.  We custom build large conference tables in sizes from 7' to 30' and beyond!


Stoneline's Axis and Radian lines feature brushed steel leg plates for a bold, modern look. Our steel plates are hot rolled: at the mill, molten steel is passed through rollers to flatten & shape the bar of steel. The rollers leave unpredictable character on the steel surface, often in a linear pattern. This is due to bits of slag being pressed through the rollers on top of the steel plate. 

We rub over and highlight this character with our regimented scratching technique, to create our Cross-Hatch and Light Cross-Hatch steel finishes. Our cross-hatch finish dominates the look, though the underlying texture will be visible on each leg plate. 

Occasionally our clients prefer a pristine cross-hatch design with no unpredictable texture. In those cases, for an additional charge we can use cold-pressed steel for our leg plates. Cold pressing does not create slag to leave marks on the steel. 

However, we encourage our customers to see the texture from hot pressing as we do: one of the details that make our tables special. Not a flaw but character that makes the table unique.
