In the fast-paced corporate sector, companies are ever-changing and keeping up with trends. Because first impressions last; your reception area should give an immediate and clear idea of what your business is and what it can offer. The reception area is full of untapped potential where making use of multimedia can contribute to making a good impression on future clients.

It is our belief that your reception desk should be chosen as carefully as you would an employee:

  • It should be measured to fit the room perfectly; not being too large or too small.
  • Your reception desk should be the focus of the room. Access to the receptionist should not be blocked by other furniture and accessories.
  • The desk should be large enough to handle any amount of floor traffic without creating an awkward line.
  • Warmth, excitement, friendliness, curiosity and confidence are the emotions this area should convey.


Here are some examples of how bold your reception desk can be:

Giorgio Reception Desk - American Walnut

The combination of the solid wood and bold colours on the Giorgio Reception Desk is able to fit any space. This desk is available in a variety of sizes and finishes at Office Scene. We suggest that you make sure you can streamline the design with the rest of the office. Pairing this counter with soft seating, art or maybe even a water feature will create a feeling of being at home.

Eclipse Reception - Front

If you are a company that is courageous enough to make a bold impression, the curved silhouetted Eclipse Reception Desk is the best option. Not only is it chic, but it’s also more comfortable for the reception staff. This desk has plenty of space to assist multiple guests and has the ability to say, “We are happy and ready to help.”

Zen Reception - Front

If you are looking for accessibility for different guests, you should try a two-tier reception desk like the Zen Reception Desk. With this desk, your reception staff can enjoy peace of mind and work behind a higher partition, while still accommodating guests with a wider welcome surface that’s inviting as well.
