The reception desk. It's the first thing most clients see when entering an office, hotel or multi-residential lobby. A well designed reception area gives the opportunity to make a statement to clients, visitors or guests and define the level of luxury and design of the entire project, space or your brand. Here are a few really great inspirational images mixing marble, travertine, onyx and other finishes to create the ultimate welcome. VP of First Impressions not included! ;)
1. Dark & Glossy with Art Deco Vibes.
Hello, dark and delicious! The above image features a Nero Marquina reception desk and feature wall that take art deco inspiration to a whole new level. We love this mix of glossy black and the rustic natural wood floors.
2. The Mixed Finished Desk.
This reception desk features a compelling mix of both stone and wood.
The mixed textures of the wood feature wall and the metal accents incorporated into the marble desk feature, really elevate the look of this design. That floor isn't horrible either!
Backlit or not (like the desk featured below), onxy is a great way to add warmth and texture to your reception area.
4. Luxury Marbles (like Calacatta Gold).
The most luxurious stones are often the most expensive. A good way to capture all the beauty of a feature piece of calacatta gold is to incorporate it into a focal point. This reception desk makes the statement that balances the masculine room.
5. The Reception Feature Wall.
This gorgeous travertine feature wall mixes up the finishes incorporating brass trim instead of grout.
This wouldn't be a Prima Stone blog feature without paying homage to one of our very favourite looks and one that we can do better than almost anyone. The book-matched feature wall. We are giving this look all the heart eyes.
