Mayline's Napoli and Medina furniture collections are top sellers in 2015. If you've had the chance to check out these two lines, you've probably wondered what the difference was between the two. In today's post we've got you covered. Here we'll be comparing the differences between Napoli and Medina to help you select the right line for your specific office makeover project. Enjoy!

Round 1: Price

The most obvious difference between the Napoli and Medina furniture collections is price. A standard 72" wide desk from the Napoli collection costs $652.99, while a desk with the same dimensions from the Medina collections costs about half. An NC8 model 8' Napoli conference table costs around $1048.99, while an 8' Medina conference table costs just $503.99. Again, this is a major difference that will greatly affect which line is correct for your specific needs and budget. Medina wins round 1.

Round 2: Construction

Now lets take a took at why the cost of Napoli and Medina furnishings are so different. The Napoli collection was specifically designed to create luxurious work environments. The products from the Napoli furniture line feature AA grade North American hardwood construction. Napoli is truly exquisite and ideal for high end office interiors. The attention to detail and quality craftsmanship is apparent even at first glance. While also visually stunning, Medina furnishings feature laminate work surfaces that greatly affect the cost. The laminate construction makes Medina furniture lighter and less expensive to manufacturer. In 2015, the low price point of laminate lines like Medina has made them a popular choice for professional home and business makeover projects. The advances in the modern furniture construction process has made laminate far more durable than in years passed. Laminate furniture is truly dominating the market, but wood veneer products like Napoli are more upscale. While Medina is very durable and reliable, round two goes to Napoli by a slim margin.

Round 3: Finishes

Both the Napoli and Medina collections are available in 3 finish options. Napoli's Sierra Cherry, Mahogany, and Golden Cherry options are all classic options for both home and professional office appellations. Medina is a bit more trend setting. While retaining the classic mahogany option, Medina also offers mocha and gray steel wood grain finish options that are sure to wow your office guests. We've also heard rumors of Mayline releasing two new finishes for the Medina collection in the next few weeks. If you're going for a classic look, Napoli is a great option. That being said, if you're looking to keep your interiors on the cutting edge and up to date with the latest design trends, Medna is the way to go. This round goes to Medina as modern furniture has dominated the traditional market in 2015.

Round 4: Product Offering

Mayline's Napoli and Medina furniture collections both offer executive office desks for home and business environments. Both lines offer elegant conference room tables available with factory installed power modules to streamline meeting productivity. In addition, Napoli and Medina also offer rectangular and U shaped reception desks with glass transaction counters. As these two similar lines offer nearly the exact same products, round 4 is a tie.

Round 5: Applications

The Mayline Napoli collection is a bit more high end as evidenced by it's significantly higher price point. If your'e looking to create an upscale boardroom, executive office, or reception area, Napoli may be the best option for your space. That being said, small businesses love the affordable price point of Medina. This expansive line is being used for home and executive office interiors, as well as modern conference room and reception area makeover projects. As both lines are ready to accommodate multiple office interiors, round 5 is also a tie.

Winner: Medina

While Medina has taken this Mayline Makeover battle, you really can't go wrong with either of these best selling furniture lines. Napoli and Medina furnishings are trend setting, well made, and sure to earn your office interiors the daily compliments they deserve.
