Elegant Function

Much is asked of contemporary meeting rooms, and Gary Lee met the challenge with the Fortis Collection. Designed to blend urban sophistication with Midwestern practicality, the pieces range from conference tables to storage and encompass storage and display needs along the way.

Power, data, voice, and audio support are built in appropriately across the collection, so that conference rooms can function well while they look good. And for those good looks, the collection shares architectural details that showcase Cumberland’s meticulous craftsmanship.
