5 L shaped Reception Desks for the Start of 2022

December 20th, 2021

Adam StacksBy Adam Stacks

As we near the start of the new year, it’s time for resolutions and commitments to reinvigorate our lives. Whether it’s a commitment to diet and exercise, financial goals, or relationship building the idea of a fresh start is appealing to so many of us. How about we take that positive energy and direct it to a professional renewal? I’m thinking a new reception area would be a great place to start.

As I have been working over the past few weeks, I keep coming back to reception desks. I am drawn to the L shaped models. To me, I want my receptionist to have plenty of workspace with ample storage in a workstation that is clean and professional, after all this piece of office furniture will be the first a guest sees when entering the building. So, a balance needs to be made. The L shaped reception desk should be attractive and a part of the overall office design palette and should be highly functional for one of the busiest workers in any office.

That’s why I am drawn to the L shaped reception desk. It offers two sides of style facing the front door as well as two separate desktops for the receptionist to focus their work. Not only that, but more desk means more room for storage options. More than any other desk in the office, the reception area must be clean and professional because everyone will see it. It’s not a desk where a worker can hide behind a closed door if need be; it’s always on display for the most important people who enter the office- the clients.

I have selected five L shaped reception desks offerings to start from in your search for your new L shaped reception desk. I have selected one model from each brand under the Madison Liquidators umbrella. Each L shaped reception desk offers something different from the other. Each shows personality that can be united in the right office environment for a seamless transition to your new reception area office furniture.

L Shaped Reception Desk with White Glass Transaction Counter

L Shaped Reception Desk With White Glass Transaction Counter

Starting Price- $1,045.00

I’ve shared this L shaped reception desk before. I love the simplicity and sophistication of this L shaped reception desk with white transaction counter from Corp Design. The smoothness of the panels throughout seems understated which allows for that white transaction counter to be the focal point. Having seen this model in person, I cannot state how quickly your eyes are drawn to the white counter that almost glows against a darker finish of the desk. Speaking of finish, this L shaped reception desk comes in the five signature Corp Design finishes- Blanc De Gris, Espresso CD, Grigio CD, Miele, and Noce.

The desk measures 72” x 78” with a 30” desktop height and a 42” transaction counter height and features a variety of layout and storage options. It can be selected with or without the glass transaction counter with the return orientated to either the left or right. The office furniture has several drawer configurations that can be fit to the user’s preference. Corp Design backs this L shaped reception desk with a five-year warranty.

Curved Reception Desk

Starting Price- $13,425.00

This curved desk doesn’t appear to be an L shaped reception desk at all from the front. The craftsmen intended it to be this way. The curve is a design choice that speaks for itself. Something about it just screams refinement. Visually this is a far more complex piece of office furniture. Groupe Lacasse has bundled office furniture together to complete the look and add maximum functionality to the desk via the back storage cabinet and the pigeonhole shelving component. Overall, the entire set makes a focal point for the entire front office.

Size wise this is a very large L shaped reception desk at 100" x 100" with a 30” depth height and a 42” transaction counter height. The reception desk can be configured with the return to either the left or the right. Also, finish customization is amazing with twenty-four finishes for both the base and the desktop giving you hundreds of combinations to find the perfect finish for this L shaped reception desk. This Groupe Lacasse L shaped reception desk carries a twenty-five-year warranty.

Modern Reception Desk

Starting Price- $1,670.00

A way more modest choice than the previous one, but this one was chosen to offer variety. This L shaped reception desk is an adequate 71” x 72” and available in depths of 30” and 42” each. This Harmony Collection offering is available in all the PL Laminate series finishes. This L shaped reception desk has a five-year warranty to go along with it.

This L shaped reception desk features two mobile pedestal cabinets that fit nicely underneath the desktop.  The return is flexible enough to be configured to the left or to the right of the main desk section. Altogether, this is a great option for a reception area where space is limited while maintaining maximum functionality. For example, a keyboard tray option clears up desk space. The minimalism of this L shaped reception desk still makes for a great centerpiece of the front office.

L Shaped Reception Desk with Drawers

Starting Price $2,265.00

Express Office Furniture provides this upscale L shaped reception desk model. The frosted acrylic panels between the desktop and the transaction counter offer a contrast in colors with the finish. The commercial grade laminate finish options are- Cherry, Dark Walnut, Gray Woodgrain, and Modern Walnut. This contrast truly makes this office furniture stand out from the previous options on the list. This L shaped reception desk is at home in a bank or in a doctor’s office. It is a versatile L shaped reception desk model.

The dimensions of the desk are  71” x 72” with a desktop height of 30” and a transaction counter of 43” respectively. The return can be configured to either the left or right. Two pedestal drawers provide much needed storage for the receptionist. The drawer hardware provides another level of contrast to provide even more character for this L shaped reception desk.
