What kinds of desks are there? There are executive desks from office furniture collections and school desks built with durable materials and functional features. All of our models come from leading school and office furniture manufacturers, and many even include a complimentary extended warranty.
What is the best desk for a classroom?
Choosing the ideal classroom desks can be quite a feat, considering all of the options and factors that must be considered. The best desks depend on the classroom layout, budget and students. The most budget-friendly desks feature laminate desktops, which have basic damage resistance but might lose their lustre after many years of classroom use. Hard plastic desktops are incredibly durable. Academia's exclusive WoodStone desktops offer the same damage resistance as hard plastic, but they cost and weigh significantly less.
The basic desk design provides a surface on which students can take notes and do assignments, but there are a number of additional components that can help everyone's day run more smoothly. Built-in bookboxes under the work surface enable students to keep everything they need close at hand. This will save the time and hassle of rummaging through backpacks during lessons or running back and forth to lockers to retrieve forgotten items.
If you want to make sure that your school desks will stay in shape, U-braces can be quite helpful. This small piece of added reinforcement wraps around desk legs to ensure many years of sturdy standing. For a colorful desk enhancement, try our attractive line of Educational Edge school desks. A hint of extra vibrant hues will brighten up your study space, creating a more inviting learning atmosphere.
What are the benefits of combo desks?
More and more schools are choosing the super-convenient chair desk option. Combo desks include an attached school chair and work surface, so you can be sure that desk and seat heights are perfectly proportionate. With this option, it is easier to line up and arrange classroom furniture and keep the space looking neat.
How do I choose an office desk?
Whether you are a teacher, student or administrator, everyone needs a comfortable space to work in. Once you have chosen the proper surfaces and arrangements for the children in your school, it is time to move on to the teacher's desk and the principal's office. Like any other executive, a school principal needs a classy work space that projects competence and professionalism. The first step to achieving this effect is by furnishing the work space with an attractive office desk.
From company president to entry-level intern, every professional works better when they have an accommodating space arrangement. Office desks come in the basic rectangular arrangement as well as u- and l-shapes. The basic design will work for someone who only needs a computer and a few papers accessible. However, high-level executives need more space for additional equipment.
Pedestals provide box and file drawers so office supplies and important documents can be stored right in the desk. The right combination of drawer configurations will depend on what field a professional is working in and how they like to arrange their office. Many of our office desks come from full furniture collections so they can be coordinated with credenzas, hutches and other pieces for a fully-matched space.
There are quite a few special features which can make a work space even more attractive. Wire-management grommets make it easy to route cables away from the desktop, so the surface remains clutter-free. Reception desks come with raised transaction counters which enable administrative assistants to have a more private work area within an open waiting room. Quite a few of our office desks have attractive accents such as edge detailing, stylish drawer pulls and more.
At Hertz Furniture, we know that everyone works better when they have a large work surface and accessible storage. Our office desks and school desks are designed to make your days as pleasant and fulfilling as possible. We are happy to help you design the ideal space and furnish it with the best furniture out there.

With Hertz Furniture's large collection of OFM furniture, you can choose from a huge number of models. No matter what your budget is, there is an OFM task chair that can fit the bill. Take your office to the next level with beautiful furniture from OFM.
Nothing can replace comfortable seating in an office or school. When people have a supportive place to sit, they are able to maximize productivity and maintain a better outlook throughout the day. Even when seating is only used on a temporary basis, no one can truly enjoy a ceremony or performance when they are seated in an uncomfortable chair. OFM folding chairs and stacking chairs are ideal for events and performances. They look and feel great, so you can easily transform a gym into an auditorium or a social hall into a banquet venue.
Guests, visitors and clients also need a place to sit while they are waiting for meetings or appointments. When choosing reception furniture, it is important to balance style and comfort. OFM reception chairs and guest chairs come in many styles and colors which can be coordinated to wall colors or other furniture. From fabric chairs to beam seating, the possibilities are virtually endless.
A few fabric chairs will fit in well in the lobby of a law firm or startup where there won't be more than a few people waiting at a time. In a doctor's office or any other place where there could be a number of people waiting, beam seating is a great choice. It provides individual seats in a long row so everyone can have personal space but many people can sit at once.
Office chairs are the most important seating that will have the greatest impact on your company. When employees can sit properly, they are able to work better and faster, and stay happier while they do it. OFM offers a variety of ergonomic office chairs which have different combinations of adjustable features and upholstery choices. Ergonomics is especially important when considering computer furniture. When professionals are properly supported throughout the day by appropriate computer chairs, they can go home without aches and pains.
The right seating is not complete without equally appropriate tables. Give students or employees a great place to take coffee breaks or eat lunch with intimate cafe tables. When hosting a professional-development session or external seminar, functional training tables are essential. With sleek seminar tables, you can provide a great space for taking notes, so participants can easily follow the presentation.
Tables are also an integral piece of conference furniture. Aside from the reception area, the other space where clients and potential business partners are most likely to go when they visit an office is the conference room. The conference table is the centerpiece of the room which sets the tone for the rest of the space. Make sure to choose a shape and size that fit the number of people you will have in the room comfortably.
In the educational setting functional, budget-friendly furniture is a must-have. Educators need appropriate work spaces just as much as their students and other professionals do. Show your hard-working teachers that their efforts are appreciated by providing teachers desks in every classroom. With a work surface and some convenient drawers, it is easy for educators to stay organized and prepare engaging lessons.
With OFM's enticing line of office and school furniture, visitors, students and employees will look forward to entering your beautifully-furnished space. When you combine cozy and supportive seating with sleek, functional work surfaces, you can't go wrong. Give your employees and students the all-star treatment they deserve with OFM furniture.
