How Do I Choose the Best Lectern?

Lecterns and pulpits come in various styles, so you must select the right one for your needs. When looking to buy a lectern or pulpit, consider the following factors:

1. Size

Size is an essential factor when selecting a lectern or pulpit. Larger models are sturdier but naturally heavier and more challenging to move around. Whereas smaller lecterns are perfect for transporting.


If you'd prefer a more portable design, consider our fold-flat lecterns, which you can fold and easily pack into a purpose-made hard case.

2. Height

Furthermore, the height of your model is also essential. Shorter lecterns enable the audience to see the speaker and thus feel more connected to them. However, higher lecterns and pulpits make it easier for the speaker to read from notes.


Consider height before making a purchase.

3. Style

Does your venue have a more modern or traditional look, minimalist or ornate? Your lectern or pulpit should reflect and complement the look of your venue.


At Nova Lecterns, we have many designs, whether you prefer the sleek, modern look of an acrylic lectern or the smooth warmth of lacquered wood. 

4. Material

What type of material do you want for your lectern or pulpit?


At Nova Lecterns, our stands come in various materials, including but not limited to:


  • Wood

  • Acrylic

  • Metal


Furthermore, we produce composite lecterns and pulpits made of mixed materials – for example, the base is wood, but the top is acrylic.

There are pros and cons to each type of material. Whereas metal and acrylic reflect a more modern style, wood gives a warmer, more traditional feel.


Contact our team to find the right lectern or pulpit to suit your needs. Our knowledgeable consultants will swiftly answer your questions and provide a suitable product quote.

Do You Provide a Warranty on Your Products?

Yes. We provide a unique lifetime manufacturer's warranty on all our products.


So in the unlikely event of poor craftsmanship, product failure or faulty manufacture and materials, we will repair or replace the lectern free of charge.
