Classroom Furniture  (49 Product Groups)
Young kids need classroom furniture that is multipurpose in construction, design, and style. Chairs and desks have to be rugged, they have to fit small bodies and be easy to move around, and they have to be comfortable so kids don’t get distracted easily. Kids also often learn in group settings, so many pieces have to provide large surfaces that accommodate several children at once. Read More

Classroom furniture for younger kids

Today’s learning environment for young children blends collaborative work into the traditional classroom setting. Essential pieces of school furniture for pre-schools and the early elementary grades include activity tables, where kids work together on projects, learning how to cooperate to achieve mutual success. Activity-based tables come in round, kidney, rectangular, clover, horseshoe, and other shapes to fit classrooms and the whimsy of team members. They consist of rugged steel, wood, laminate, or vinyl frames and surfaces, and they’re height-adjustable, to fit growing kids. Furniture for kids also includes durable classroom chairs, ranging from reading chairs to desk and table chairs, to rockers and stools, all with seat heights that are comfortable and safe for young kids to work or socialize. Like activity tables, they’re well built, and many are lightweight and stackable for convenience.

School furniture for older youngsters

Teamwork continues at the elementary level, where activities become more sophisticated. Collaborative project settings for older kids include science lab tables with sturdy, spacious surfaces that accommodate instruments like microscopes, balances, and weights. The tables also double as art and project-work tables, since their finishes stand up to any classroom material. Some pieces include portable lab units with cabinets, shelves, and built-in sinks so that older students can work with chemical agents safely.

A variety of student desks are also available, whether standalone or chair-attached. Standalone models normally have height-adjustable legs so they can cross-purpose in classrooms shared by different grades. They also have plenty of desktop surface and front storage space for supplies. Chair-attached desks normally consist of laminate writing surfaces welded with tubular steel to chair frames for safety and stability. They usually contain lower storage racks for holding books and supplies.

Other classroom furniture for kids

Many classrooms use portable study carrels to let older students concentrate on individual work. The carrels have privacy walls to minimize distractions, and many have an additional work surface to hold computers. Early childhood school furniture includes rest mats for toddlers for downtime periods. Many have high-density foam padding up to 1 inch thick for comfort, covered in vinyl so they clean up easily.
