Meeting Room Table Project
White Boardroom Table Project
This conference room table was designed for a fashion company who spend a lot of time communicating by video conference to their branches around the world. So we designed the table to taper from one end to the other, so everyone seated around the table has an unobstructed view of their colleagues on the big screen at the head of the table. This minimal and very contemporary design is based on our Strata table, at 3600mm long and tapering from 1600mm to 1100mm end to end. There’s a removable thumb cap in the table surface for cables and a cable tray underneath to route everything tidily to the nearest power outlet. The top is a 25mm ply with durable soft textured Formica HPL (high pressure laminate) in Polar white, to match the powder coated Polar White legs and under frame in a matt finish.
The Triumph Motorcycles Visitor Centre Project
We make custom boardroom tables (or conferences room tables) of any size, and virtually any style. Choose from our selection of standard table designs, or if you’re after something bespoke just let us know the style and size you’re after, and we’ll design something specifically for you.
Axa Head Office – London
Custom Conference Room Table
Axa’s CEO wanted a striking centre-piece table to complete their major office refurbishments at their new London head office. The brief was a big chunky table of the finest quality oak, to really be a point of pride for the company executives and to have an impact on clients they were hosting. As the photos show, the table had to come with integrated power points and USB connections. We recommended S-Box, which are a very high quality pop-up unit that hides in the table top. The intelligence of these units is that the pop-up mechanism works extremely smoothly and silently because of a patented counter-weight system, rather than a noisy and more problematic electric motor operation. The engineered simplicity behind the S-Box made it the perfect fit for one of our tables.

The Quirks That Come With This Type Of Furniture
Movement, cracking, bending, warping… these are all a possibility with any large piece of natural timber. Some timbers carry much more of a risk of movement than oak, which has a mid-level movement coefficient. If you’ve read our website then you’ll know that our French Oak trees (technically know as “Boules”) have been slowly are carefully kiln dried to gently reduce the years of stored tension and ease their natural moisture content down towards the levels of your indoor home environment After buying boules of oak for many years I can confidently tell you that “kiln dried” does not guarantee that this process has been given the time and care that is required to product indoor furniture that will last. Nevertheless, there is no artificial seasoning process that can replicate the exact heat and moisture levels in your home throughout the year, especially the extreme heat and dry air of a centrally heater home in winter. Which means the oak in your table will be experiencing new conditions for the first 12 month cycle in your home and that means it may move, crack, bend… These are all possibilities regardless of how well seasoned the timber is.
Minimising The Risk Of Cracking & Warping
BUT, as wood if you are investing in a real oak table to not just look stunning, but retain its stunning beauty for many many years, it is absolutely essential that your table comes with an aftercare service to address any movement issues that arise within the first 12 months of settling.
Providing this vital aftercare service is something very few other table makers are willing or able to do, so our promise to prove this service gives you a unique peace of mind that you can only get when buying a table from Abacus. Until recently we have used independent delivery and service companies to help us provide the aftercare that these tables need.
To create an industrial feel we’d recommend a table base made out of steel. You can choose either stainless steel, mild steel with a clear lacquer, or powder coated steel. When paired with a rustic and characterful oak top, the combination works perfectly to create a stand-out industrial meeting table, industrial conference table, or industrial boardroom table. Specify any size and we’ll send over some concepts that.
