One of our most notable clients for conference room accessories is the White House. Our Black Leather Conference Table Pads (P1010) have adorned the White House Situation Room since it was renovated in 2007. They’ve been in use protecting boardroom tables that presidents and other notable dignitaries have used on a regular basis.
During the 2007 renovation, the most important change was the expansion of its use beyond the National Security Council to also include the Homeland Security Council and the White House chief of staff’s office.
The Situation Room continues to serve as a conduit for our National Defense and we are proud to provide protection to the tables in these most vital meetings. President's George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Joe Biden all have used our conference table pads during their terms in office and we are hoping this tradition continues for many more years to come.
