Many of our models come with Hertz Furniture's exclusive extended warranty so you can be sure to enjoy your new furniture for many years to come.

What kind of storage can I get in an office desk?

Executive desk pedestals come with some combination of box and file drawers. If you need to keep a lot of extra supplies on hand, box drawers are very helpful. File drawers are great if you want to organize your papers in the most accessible fashion. Rather than having to get up and go to the file cabinet, which might be in another room, you can simply reach over and get what is needed. Most pedestals include both box and file drawers.

In addition to the drawer configuration, there are other factors that vary among desk models. Pedestals come in either full length or ¾ length. Many options feature centrally-locking pedestals. They keep your supplies and documents secure, but are easy to open with a single key when necessary.

What style desk is best for my office?

The contemporary office desk comes in many different shapes. There is the classic rectangular desk, which is often available with a bow front as well for a slightly larger work area. For the busy executive or administrator who needs significantly more space, there are the U-shaped and L-shaped desk options. These are optimal choices for a school principal or company president who has a large private office and needs space for electronics and accessories. They are also good for a shared office space because they section-off a personal area within a larger open room. The U-shape is available in a classic design or with a peninsula, which is great for conferencing or intimate strategy-planning sessions.

Do I need a special desk for the receptionist?

In addition to executive desk configurations, we also offer a selection of reception desks. Raised transaction counters are ideal for administrative assistants in an open reception area. They supply an excellent place for distributing informative literature and filling out forms, while providing the receptionist with a more private workspace.

What is the best desk for cubicles?

Many companies and institutions have a shared workspace that is divided amongst a number of employees. We offer a number of space-saving options that enable multiple people to enjoy a personal workspace within a shared area. We offer two-person desks which are constructed in a continuous side by side style as well as back to back double desks which are separated by a hutch. For cubicle-style multi-person workstations, there are connected desks for four or six.

What should I think about when getting an executive desk?

Many factors vary across contemporary office desk designs. Legroom varies according to the size of the work surface as well as the configuration of the pedestals. Executive desks come in a number of different surface materials. These affect the aesthetic appearance as well as the durability of the desktop. A conference overhang makes an office desk more accommodating for small meetings. It provides the guest seated on the opposite side of the desk with a more comfortable space to sit and take notes.

How can I accommodate a computer at my desk?

In this day and age, every modern office desk has some kind of computer, and often additional electronics as well. Therefore, every desk must be evaluated for its ability to accommodate your digital needs before purchase. Most contemporary office desks feature wire-management grommets which keep your work surface uncluttered and make it easy to route wires to outlets. For the most computer-friendly option, consider a model with a concealed CPU holder and built-in power strip. Many desks also offer the convenient option of a pull-out keyboard drawer for ergonomic typing.

For a fully coordinated office, you can match many of our executive desks with full office furniture collections. We have stylish contemporary office furniture collections including the Pimlico and Belmont collections from DMI as well as the CSII, Del Mar and Napoli collections from Mayline. We also have office desks from other leading manufacturers including Global and High Point.

Coordinating all of your office furniture while staying on budget can be quite a challenge. HON Furniture has the modern selection you need to create a functional work space. With bookcases, office desks and task chairs that can be mixed and matched, you can achieve a winning combination for any space.

HON's practical office furniture is Made in the USA with eco-friendly materials. With a 25-year warranty from Hertz Furniture, you can be sure that these computer desks, file cabinets and executive chairs will be there to see your company through from the big move to your next merger and beyond.

The key to having a productive work day and going home happy is surrounding oneself with attractive and comfortable office furniture. Surroundings which are organized, appealing and supportive help professionals concentrate and feel relaxed at the office - even if they are working in high-pressure situations. Every employee from administrative assistant to entry-level clerk to company president contributes to the overall success of a business or organization, so it is important to make sure that every workspace is furnished properly.

When considering how to promote the physical comfort of a lawyer, principal or secretary throughout the day, office chairs should be the main concern. A supportive swivel chair which promotes naturally healthy positioning will prevent aches and pains associated with working at a computer for many hours. Cushy padding, attractive upholstery and adjustable features combine ergonomics and aesthetics for a synthesis that both looks and feels wonderful.

While every employee deserves the best office chair, high-level executives such as partners, CEOs and vice presidents deserve seating that is a step above. They certainly need the same custom support as all employees do, but they also require an elegant style which projects a sense of authority and reliability. Executive chairs feature high backs and luxurious padding which is a cut above the rest. A leather office chair is the classic choice for someone who is in charge of a large company.

Once appropriate seating has been selected, it's time to move on to work surfaces. Office desks come in all shapes and sizes. With their simple yet practical designs, HON computer desks can fit in with any decor or color scheme. Pedestals with box and file drawers keep everything organized, whether you prefer a u-shape or classic rectangular configuration. HON's durable steel office desks make great teacher desks because they are able to withstand the use - and abuse - of any classroom.

A busy professional with many clients will likely require more storage and filing space than any regular computer desk can provide. An easy way to provide extra office storage without crowding the workspace is by adding a coordinated hutch to the executive desk. Office hutches fit right above the work surface, forming a seamless connection that is both convenient and visually appealing. Another excellent way to add some drawer space, and even an extra work surface is by placing a credenza next to or behind a desk. With this arrangement, one can simply swivel around on a computer chair, without having to get up or move too far, and retrieve the necessary supplies or documents.

Busy law firms and medical practices have lots of papers that must be organized on a constant basis. File cabinets offer an easy way to keep everything in order. HON filing cabinets feature generous drawers and are available in both lateral and vertical configurations. With these arrangements, a standardized filing system can be easily achieved and maintained.

Many executives like to keep some reading materials in their personal offices. Office bookcases will keep reference books, personal collections and binders in neat displays that are befitting the professional atmosphere. Bookshelves can go in the executive suite, employee lounge, training room, or even the waiting area. They come in compact two-shelf models as well as high-capacity floor-to-ceiling arrangements.

Not every professional is privileged to enjoy the pleasures of a large executive suite. However, there are ways to create a private personal workspace within a large shared area. Office cubicles from HON are versatile and convenient. They can be set up in a variety of configurations depending on the nature of your space and how you prefer to divide it up. Cubicles have the benefits of both personal areas and a shared space because they create clear divisions while still promoting camaraderie and teamwork.

Enjoy the versatility and practicality of HON Furniture in any office, school or organization. Let this budget-friendly modern office furniture facilitate productivity in a positive work environment as your company evolves from startup to industry leader.
