First impressions are everything, and that’s why it’s so important to incorporate a bold reception area into your office. As the first point of contact most visitors will see upon entering your business, the reception area can make or break your first impression. But there’s just one problem—the budget. How do you get a striking modern look in your lobby without going over your office furniture budget? That’s where the NBF Signature Series Compass collection comes in.


Modular Reception Desks

Waiting areas in most businesses today are designed in a modern fashion to give the room a sleek, up-to-date appearance and to make the space look cleaner and larger. With wood tone laminate surfaces available in your choice of stone walnut or dark walnut accented with metal and glass panels, the contemporary appeal of this collection is undeniable.


Not only are these desks attractive, but they also boast a modular design that’s meant to accommodate waiting areas of any size. Small Compass desks can be used alone or connected together to create a larger reception desk that will be proportional to your lobby. The round shape of these desks is also unique and will help create that wow factor you want in the reception area.

Modern Lounge Seating

The desks in the Compass collection may be real head-turners, but the lounge seating in this collection packs a few punches of its own. Not only do these chairs look great, but they’re loaded with modern amenities, too. From the built-in charging ports on the front sides of the chairs to the easy-to-clean polyurethane upholstery, you’ll love incorporating this furniture into your waiting area almost as much as your guests will.

Healthcare Approved Guest Chairs and Occasional Tables

We designed the guest seating and occasional tables in the Compass collection to meet the needs of healthcare waiting rooms first. Polyurethane upholstery and arm caps are a breeze to wipe clean, while a cleanout space between the back and seat of the chair foster better cleanability and staff safety since crumbs and foreign objects cannot get caught between any chair cracks. Some options even include lockable back casters for ease of mobility.


Although the Compass guest seating is suitable for healthcare waiting rooms, it also works perfectly well in business reception areas of any kind. These clean, modern seating options are designed for any budget-savvy office that doesn’t want to sacrifice quality for affordability.
