Furniture solutions for workplace, education, healthcare, and home office markets
First impressions do count! Your office reception area is the first thing that people notice about your business, and it speaks volumes about your company. Whether it is a local business that would like to go for small reception desks or a large corporation that is looking for elegant glass reception desks, The Office Shop offers a wide collection of customizable high quality and reception furniture in Ottawa.
A beautifully designed reception space with well-placed furniture is one that will subtlety impress all visitors. How would you like your reception space to represent you and your brand?
Here are our tips to get you started when selecting furniture for your reception furniture:
If your business is a bank or a law firm for example, you may want to select reception furniture with stone and solid wood parts — which communicate a sense of permanence and heritage. For a forward-looking motif, a tech focused business may benefit from a reception area with a more contemporary design.
Each reception space caters to specific situations. In a medical office, for instance, people may have to wait for some time. In this instance, comfort may take precedence over aesthetics. For businesses with tight schedules and short wait times, reception area furniture with a stylish, but somewhat firmer back, may be the best choice. Many reception rooms are multifunctional, allowing employees to use them as working lounges to meet with clients or check messages.
It is necessary to evaluate who will use the place and how heavily it will be used. Will children be present in the waiting room? If heavy usage is expected, reception area furniture with durable and easy-to-clean laminate surfaces is ideal. Glass surfaces on reception area furniture that will experience less wear and are more suited to more professional clients.
The Office Shop will strive to optimize the value you receive at each price point, regardless of the quality level your budget dictates. We will start by having our in-house design experts listen to your needs, model your layout, select a style and quality level, and combine your reception area furniture selections into a holistic design solution.
In addition to design and quality, we also evaluate usage patterns, traffic flow, and the overall message that your selections communicate in relation to your business industry and brand identity. Our design experts are glad to provide you with this service. We are eager to assist you in getting started!
You need to make sure you add a welcoming entrance to your business. It is essential to have a welcoming space that is both comfortable for guests and exudes professionalism. A reception desk starter unit would be perfect if you don’t have much space in your reception area and want a small desk. However, if you have a spacious office, create a modular reception unit in any shape with a reception desk starter unit, a curved reception desk corner unit, and a return reception desk.
Many office receptionists handle financial transactions on their own, therefore, it is important to close off the reception counter’s entrance. The visibility of company documents in the reception area should also be considered. A square, oval, circular, U-shaped, or curved reception desk helps to create a secure and closed area for receptionists while protecting the privacy of your company documents.
Your receptionist will require an ergonomic office chair. Choose a sturdy, comfy chair for your receptionist as they will sit in it for about eight hours a day. Additionally, the welcome area will require visitor chairs. Choose seats that are both stylish and comfy while simultaneously being durable and simple to clean. Many people will sit on the chairs daily, so the seats should be easy to maintain.
The design of lounge area furniture may feature more focus points and groups of chairs facing one another that are arranged in circles or squares. A reception area with a more conventional design may feature rows of lounge chairs aligned with a more linear traffic pattern. The Office Shop has lobby area chairs that would suit both lounge seating and bench seating.
The reception area requires storage to store office documents and other supplies. Filing cabinets and under-desk pedestals are functional solutions that can be concealed beneath the desk.
If the receptionist needs fast access to physical files, such as in a medical office, an office wall partition can be used to establish a storage room next to the reception desk that is immediately accessible to people working at the front. Reception area desks with built-in storage are advantageous for a receptionist who handles papers but needs access to fewer files.

Access Rehab Inc would like to thank you for furnishing our new clinic in Vaughan. It was pleasure working with the designer whose choice of colour is on point. The customer service and delivery was an excellent experience. I can see now why they are voted one of the top ten office furniture in Toronto. It was a very smooth and executed experience. I would highly recommend The Office Shop Inc.
I worked with DeAnna to purchase new furniture for my office and I could not be more pleased. DeAnna worked me with for several days to finalize the design and we received all our furniture in under three weeks! The delivery team was extremely kind and worked with us to ensure that the set up was exactly what we wanted. I am so happy with all of our new office furniture. I would definitely work with The Office Shop again and I would absolutely recommend them.
Franca and the team at The Office Shop provided a great experience for us as we purchased furniture for our new school spaces. They were patient and helpful and very hands-on as we made many decisions. Much appreciated!
So many thanks for Joanne’s great service. I feel my WRH life is much better. I love my new chair
I ordered a home office chair. They are very patient. They are very knowledgeable on differences of chairs. Prices are equal to similar places.
