12 Stylish Backgrounds to Download for Your Next Virtual Meeting

Elevate your virtual meetings and consultations with our latest virtual backgrounds. Download and use your favorite Four Hands images on remote conferencing platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Plus, see styling tips from our in-house designers for both outdoors and in.

Office Virtual Backgrounds

Creativity at Work: In the office or at home, look for pieces designed to keep the inspiration flowing. Think ample open shelving for displaying favorite treasures. Or desks and chairs designed with unique details, whether it’s an unexpected hint of leather or vintage-inspired cane.

 

Outdoor Virtual Backgrounds

A Study in Contrast: Soft textures and curves go a long way toward making an outdoor gathering space just as inviting as indoors. Add plants of varying heights for additional accents of warmth and color.

 

Living & Dining Virtual Backgrounds

In the Mix: Gone are the days of the matching table, chairs and sideboard. Add visual interest and contrast by mixing woods, choosing pieces with similar undertones (warm vs. cool). For the risk-averse, add a pop of color and sophistication to more monochromatic spaces with just a hint of black.
