Antique furniture says something about its owner. It can say “here is a person with taste who appreciates beautiful things” or “here is someone who likes to preserve and care for beautiful objects” or any variation of the above.

In an office, however, antique furniture is less commonplace. It is quite difficult to preserve the condition of a piece of furniture that lives its life in the hustle and bustle of a busy office and for that reson, offices tend to be furnished with strong, resilient and easily replaced furniture.

Until, that is, you stroll into the boardroom, or conference room. These are places where you only go for meetings, presentations and other special occasions and they tend to be furnished to a higher standard than is the case in the general office areas.

A boardroom is a place where you might take visitors, maybe potential customers, people that you want to impress and to whom you want to give the impression that you are a solid, reliable organisation upon which they can place their trust.

Where better then, than a boardroom, to make use of the very impressive qualities of an antique boardroom table?
