Space Saving …. Podiums and Lecterns 0

Do you need a podium or lectern? But have a small space that needs to be used economically.

We understand the challenges that a small space brings.

That is why we have space saving podiums and lecterns in a variety of styles and medias.

What about quality? Just because you have a small area doesn’t mean you should sacrifice quality, impression, and distinction that a podium makes.

Quality is not reserved for bigger, more expensive podiums. Space saving podiums and lecterns are made with the same exacting methods as our larger ones.

These lecterns offer design, durability, and functionality as a larger lectern only with a smaller footprint. They will serve you well in any church, school, or business environment.

The Revolution In Valet Podiums Has Come 0

Valet podiums haven’t changed in decades, until now.

The valet podium has been invaded by a new revolutionary design.

With the traditional podium it required bending over to retrieve keys. This new design eliminates bending to retrieve keys.

This unique valet podium is modern in style, safe, secure, organized, easy to use and made to last in harsh conditions.

One of the functions of this podium is to streamline the flow of the valet attendants’ job, by making it more efficient and cost effective.

Two models are available: the 100 Key Slot and 200 Key Slot. Both come with a host of features, based on the model.  One unordinary feature is that it comes in four attractive colors; Black, White, Red and Blue.





This podium is a MUST for all Parking Ramps, Businesses, Hotel and Restaurant Environments.

Thank You for your time.

Chapels Need A Pulpit, Podium or Furnishing Too 0

The word “chapel” conjures up many images and meanings.

If you look up the definition of “chapel, you will find that it is: A small building for Christian worship or a room or building in which funeral services are held and many more definitions.

But, today, chapels serve a wide variety of faiths, including Christians, Judaism, Muslims, Buddhism, etc.

Chapels can be found within hospitals, military bases, prisons, cemeteries, airports, funeral homes, and universities; where they fill a religious, spiritual, and cultural need.

These chapels are often decorated with nature themes or symbols of many religions or other non-denominational designs.

Chapels, meditation, or prayer rooms serve as a quiet, peaceful, relaxing, and stress-free place where employees, patients, visitors, or travelers can pray, meditate and/or worship.

Often times a chaplain or religious leader will have scheduled mass or religious services in a hospital chapel for patients, visitors and staff.

The pulpit, podium, or altar they use may be on castors (wheels), so it can be moved into place while they conduct the service and rolled out of the way when not in use.

Another type of chapel is the Wedding Chapel, like the ones in Las Vegas or Mall of America, that are solely dedicated to marrying couples.

These are unique, sophisticated, and intimate places to tie the knot.

There is an ordained minister on staff and the décor can feature a pulpit or podium and flower stands.
