Reception sofas, chairs and modular reception seating. Style and design, size, colour and upholstery cover can all play a part in the choice of soft seating. Reception seating can be an ideal design contrast to the hard surfaces of an office reception and reception desk, introducing colour and texture. The quality of reception seating also adds to the overall design integrity, with many 20th century design classics available to select from.
Reception seating is available in styles ranging from classic buttoned to contemporary steel and leather. The shape and size of reception seating is a key consideration, as is the clustering of the seating. Formally laid-out arrangements look great, but receptions with smaller asymmetric seating areas benefit from tub chairs or individual swivel chairs such as the Fritz Hanson Egg and Swan chairs.
Reception seating is often firmer than lounge or breakout sofas, for two reasons. Firmer reception sofas are easier to get out of, and upholstery will ‘puddle’ less over time keeping the reception chairs looking crisp and tidy.
