After a thorough review, we feel the conference tables from the Global Total Office Zira collection are the best in the business. They provide an unrivaled combination of style, functionality, and value. Zira tables are incredibly well made and versatile. All models from this best selling collection can be equipped with high tech modules to help streamline meetings and collaboration sessions. The downside to Zira tables has to be the 3 to 5 week manufacturing time. That being said, if you plan in advance this hurdle can be quickly overcome. Go with a Zira table for your boardroom remodel and your business will be on the cutting edge for years to come.
The tables from the Mayline TransAction series are high tech in every way. Even at first glance you'll notice the industrial vibe put off by these advanced boardroom tables. While stylish, heavy duty, and cutting edge, TransAction tables are a bit difficult to spec. With loads of modules, wiring, and inputs to choose from, you'll likely want to enlist the help of the pros when selecting a table from this collection. All things considered, TransAction tables are great once they've been spec'd and installed. If you're going for long term durability and customizable features, TransAction is an awesome option in 2016.
It's no secret that powered tables are the way of the future. Nearly every reputable manufacturer is hard at work making this emerging trend an industry standard. This year Cherryman Industries has enjoyed success with the modern conference tables from the Verde collection. With cool white leg accents, cable management troughs, and two designer finish options, these conference tables with boat shaped tops are hard to beat. Verde tables can be outfitted with simple factory installed modules equipped with AC and data inputs to meet your basic meeting needs. We'd like to see this modern collection offer a few more options like USB and HDMI, but for those looking to keep it simple while sticking to a modern vibe, Verde is a must consider. The tables from this collection are also surprisingly affordable.
Shoppers looking to save a buck in 2016 will definitely want to check out the Offices To Go conference room tables from the Superior Laminate collection. Models like the SL9544RS are available in high quality laminate finish options that ship quick and hold up great in professional settings. These oval conference tables are simple, cost effective, and perfect for businesses on a budget. The down side to the SL9544RS and other models from OTG is that no power options are available. You'll have to go aftermarket if you want to tech-up your meetings.
Last but certainly not least, tables like the 55118 model from OFM, Inc. have been super popular in 2016. If you're worried about the assembly and installation process, these tables are the way to go. With OFM's quick connect system the 55118 goes together with no tools required. Talk about user friendly! With metal accented legs, these tables are durable and very sturdy. The 55118 is available in popular finish options like cherry, maple, and our personal favorite, graphite. At just $645.99, you'll be rewarded with a professional grade table that will earn your interior plenty of compliments. While not available with power, the 55118 really has a lot to offer your business.
