7 Reception Desks for the Fall of 2022

Adam StacksBy Adam Stacks

Over the past few days, I have been looking at the many awesome reception desks that we carry through our partners here at Madison Liquidators. Every time I start to talk about reception desks, I always make a note up front that this just may be the most important piece of office furniture in the entire office. As I have said multiple times and will continue to speak every chance I get, the reception desk sits in the first area of your office that guests enter, and that it is the first major office furniture piece that they will see.

If you want your office to have a positive first impression, then whatever your clients and guest first lay their eyes upon better be a high quality and attractive focal point. No matter how much we want the big clients to be impressed with the desk in the executive office, it’s still one of the last things they will see in the business. That is unless we intend on moving the executive office to the front. You don’t need me to tell you how bad of an idea that is, it just wouldn’t work.

But what needs to work in that space is an attractive focal point that grabs the guests’ eyes immediately. One that gives the first hint of what the inner office is like. A smartly designed waiting area with an attractive reception desk goes a long way to establishing the entire office. A poorly designed and unattractive reception desk will hurt more than you may first realize but it will become evident in short order. So, we want to avoid that and make the reception area a place of welcoming, of professionalism, and most importantly the herald of the rest of the office.

Styles change and what’s trendy today will soon be outdated tomorrow, right? That can be true, but there are exceptions. For example, in 2011 it was very trendy to paint in bright colored chevron patterns, but today it just looks tacky. But in that same time, power colors such as navy blue and black were also in style, and they still are to this day. So how do we know what will remain in style for years to come and what will be a fad that soon falls out of favor? In fashion, I couldn’t tell you. I am not a very stylish person, but in office furniture, if we want something to withstand the test of time then we look to trusted brands and stay away from fly by night companies that flood the market with ultra-modern office furniture that will be out of style very quickly. Usually around the time that these companies go out of business.

With that in mind, I have compiled a list of seven reception desks for the fall of 2022.

L Shaped Reception Desk with Drawers

L Shaped Reception Desk With Drawers

Starting Price- $1,150.00

An L shaped reception desk is the perfect place to start the list. I dare say that if they were to ever go out of style, no one would notice because most office workers demand them for their higher functionality. This one is from Boss Office Products as part of their Commerce Laminate series that features sturdy and professional office furniture built using modern day commercial grade laminates. The quality of their office furniture is backed by a one-year warranty. There is a second option for a standard rectangular desk with this model. Customization options can be made for the drawers, keyboard trays, and power modules, or you can choose none of them for a desk shell. The finish can be chosen as one of these four attractive options- Cherry, Driftwood, Mahogany, and Mocha. When visiting the page take note of the recommended accessories to ensure that the entire reception area has all the storage office furniture it needs to keep it clean and organized in matching finishes of the main reception desk.

Modern Reception Desk

All of the features of this modern reception desk are the adjustable shelves, drawers, a file cabinet, overhead storage with a Hutch.
