Furniture for Different Spaces – What’s best for individual settings?

Although we specialise in office furniture, there are many other places – which may not be offices as such – for which we can also help when it comes to space planning and furniture requirements. Such customers in the past have included Estate Agents, Libraries, Schools, Surgeries & Hospitals, Salons, Call Centres, Hotel  & Hospitality venues, as well as various forms of Coworking spaces, Community Halls, Auditoriums and Airports, to name just a few.

Let’s look at the different kinds of furniture you might consider for such spaces. We’ve also included some links to more in-depth recommendations so these settings.

Our extensive collection of beam seating for airports is available in several configurations, to suit different numbers of people, offering comfort and practicality in equal measures. Some options can also be fixed to the floor, for added stability.

Call Centres

Call Centres have now become essential for many businesses. Our Call Centre furniture range has been designed specifically to meet modern requirements.

Our call centre desks can be arranged to form clusters, enabling them to seat any number of users whilst at the same time saving valuable office floor space. Because many businesses operate call centres for customer service, it is essential that even when users are seated next to one another, they still retain a certain amount of privacy in order to take customer calls. Thus we offer a range of screen options that can be added to any call centre desk, in order to provide an acoustic and visual barrier, and to separate individual workspaces for different users.

Of course, call centre furniture is not just limited to call centre offices. Many schools, colleges, universities and libraries also find this type of furniture beneficial, in terms of space, privacy and cost.
