Reception Chair like the ones from Bestbuy Office Chairs can be the focal point of any reception area. They give the table a sense of order and style. When picking out your chairs to make sure they are upholstered in either fabric or leather and have the back of the chair cushions in either a pattern or solid color. These chairs are generally long lasting and durable, but try not to choose something with delicate woodwork, or a very plain design on the outside, because if the receptionist is serving drinks, she will need something to grab onto. Some of the less expensive chairs may only need a tablecloth to cover them, and most will not need to be refilled after each use, but be sure to keep the receipt in case you decide to order refillable chairs.
Reception chairs that have arms are a bit more functional, although if you are limited on space, there are some folding ones that double as a file table as well. These chairs fold flat when not in use, so they won’t take up as much room in your closet or in your waiting area.
Reception desks are also available, but you must purchase them separately. A desk is used for placing documents, letters and other paperwork into an organized fashion. They often include a hutch at the top which can be used for storage. When choosing reception desks, make sure they are in an office style and are large enough to accommodate a computer as well as several other items. You can find them in wood, metal and glass, and these styles vary greatly in their prices.
