Dimensions

As a general rule, meeting tables are smaller than boardroom tables and conference tables.

We have tables available in many different dimensions to seat anything from 4-24 people (or more). If you are not sure what size table you will need, please call us.

If you need a flexible system then you may want to consider modular boardroom tables. They can be configured to suit small or large groups of people. An opening in the middle of these tables provides smart power, data and cable management solutions.
