Let’s explain by way of a selection of functional office furniture examples.

Meeting table come breakout table

Here’s a table that will deliver on two counts. Firstly, it’s perfect as a meeting table. Sleek enough for corporate meetings and practical for the smaller office, this table is versatile in terms of its finish, offering ample options to suit your office décor.

Once your meeting is done, the table transforms into a functional breakout table, perfect for a coffee and a read, or a convivial lunch.
