How big should a boardroom table be? What shape of table is best suited to my office? Are these questions you’re asking yourself to find a suitable boardroom table? At ORS, we know that selecting the right table is a crucial decision and can greatly impact the productivity and atmosphere of your meetings. We have a wide range of options available, so we’ve compiled a list of some of the boardroom tables we sell, along with their unique features and benefits. We hope to give the tips you need to choose the best boardroom table for your office.


Rectangular Tables

Rectangular tables are a classic choice for boardrooms. They offer a traditional and professional appearance and can easily accommodate a large number of attendees. Rectangular tables can be easily placed against walls to maximise floor space, or you can opt for a central placement to create a focal point in the room.

Circular Tables

Circular tables have a timeless appeal and encourage a collaborative atmosphere. These tables can create a more intimate and engaging environment for smaller boardroom settings.  With no distinct head or foot of the table, circular tables promote equal participation and foster teamwork. They are great for encouraging discussions, brainstorming sessions, and building consensus among meeting participants.

Boat Shaped Tables

Boat shaped tables feature a curved design that resembles the shape of a boat, with a wider middle section and tapered ends. These tables provide a modern and stylish look while offering ample space for meetings. The wider middle section allows for better visibility and interaction among participants, making them ideal for collaborative discussions or presentations.

The rounded ends provide a focal point for the room and can facilitate a more intimate setting for important discussions or executive meetings.

They are great for businesses that prioritise inclusivity and encourage open communication during meetings.

Extension Tables

Extension tables offer flexibility and adaptability for boardrooms with varying seating requirements. These tables typically have an adjustable length that allows them to expand or contract based on the number of attendees. Extension tables are ideal for businesses that host meetings of different sizes or need the ability to rearrange the room layout occasionally.
