Waiting Done Well

Sometimes it feels like we spend so much of our life waiting! I know us Brits are famous for queuing in an orderly fashion but today I was thinking about the time we spend in waiting rooms. So I thought I would hunt out some examples of waiting rooms done well, very well. So good you may want to stay, curl up with a book and remove your shoes!

Love this space – corporate but also very fun. These pebble like seats just make me want to lie back and relax!

Great furniture design can really make a difference, not just comfort but this room has understated style.

Great chairs and artwork in this waiting room

I love the flexible nature of these seating units. There is a lot going on in this industrial interior but these chairs complement with their muted greys and interlocking design.

We all know of the power of plants to calm but I love this mini greenhouse in this waiting room. The black and white decor is set off nicely by the greenery of the leafy plants.

Stack ’em up – wooden seating that works.

There is something a little StarTrek about this waiting room but I am impressed that the stark space still looks inviting.

This padded alcove waiting area is very flexible.

A moment of calm – nice wooden tables in this tranquil seating area.

So what do you think? No need for dull moments in dull rooms with un-interesting chairs. If you have to make us wait, at least let us do it in style.
