What Styles Do Podiums Come In?

You often heard me mention styles of podiums as modern, contemporary, or traditional.

But what is the difference? Let us take a few minutes to break it down.

Modern – Features of a modern style podium are that the esthetics are minimalistic with crisp, clean lines and simple form and function.  Another characteristic is wood, or wood elements incorporated into it.

Contemporary – Traits of these podiums are bold designs in many variations, with materials such as glass, acrylic, metal, or a combination of materials.

They are also minimalistic with clean lines, often featuring curves.

Contemporary podiums will fit any church, business, school, or meeting place.

Traditional – The definition of this word is Characteristic of older styles and customs, beliefs or methods that have existed for a long time without changing.

Podiums and Pulpits that fall into this category have classic designs and details from a variety of centuries and made of solid hardwood.

Usually heavy looking with carvings, fluting, scrollwork, or dental molding.  They also include warm to dark stain colors and have symmetrical lines that contribute to a comfortable elegant feeling.
