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 a durable design that incorporates the latest looks, trends and colors, you get the best of everything. Inspiration combo desks, preschool tables and drafting chairs have the features you need to enhance any modern classroom environment. With tons of colors, sizes and special design features to choose from, this classroom furniture can be coordinated with your decor and custom requirements.
One great thing about having the Inspiration classroom collection is that you can get all of the chairs and desks you need for your school in one place. When you order a number of pieces from the same line, you also know that they will look good together. Rather than hunting around for sizes and styles that match and fit correctly, you can rest assured that everything will synthesize well in your space.
School chairs might just be the most important classroom furniture for your students. Student chair design determines how comfortable your class will be. Well-supported students won't be distracting themselves and their friends by constantly shifting in their seats, but you can bet that uncomfortable students will. With proper support, you can help children maximize their productivity in class and get as much as they can out of each and every lesson.
There are lots of special design features that make inspiration classroom chairs uniquely suited for a modern learning space. Soft plastic shells with flex action let students lean back and get comfortable without causing damage to the chair. Sturdy support is supplied by 17-reinforcement ridges and a 16-gauge steel frame. For extra convenience, a built-in carry handle and stacking capabilities make transport and storage easier than ever.
Beyond the basic design which is part of all Inspiration classroom seating, there are lots of choices and custom options to consider. A selection of heights lets children in any grade sit properly. With tons of shell colors, you can choose one hue which works well with your space or brighten up the classroom with a colorful selection. Bookboxes are great because they eliminate work surface clutter while providing students with an accessible space for their books. With casters on the bottom of school chairs, a classroom can be rearranged without and lifting at all.
While the standard four-leg design is functional, it is not always the ideal choice just because it is the obvious one. For schools on a tight budget, the value chair option can really make a difference, especially when you are ordering in large quantities. cantilever chairs have a futuristic design which maximizes legroom in a cool contemporary way. Swivel chairs are perfect for the computer room or science lab where students need to access a larger surface comfortably.
Especially in a high school setting, there may be students who don't fit in the standard-size student chairs. Besides making people uncomfortable, chairs that are not built to hold the people sitting in them can potentially get damaged and cause injury. The Inspiration XL Series fits right in with regular Inspiration models, but supports taller, broader students. With extra reinforcement ridges, a higher weight capacity and wider seat, the XL chair ensures that every member of the class has an appropriate place to sit.
Once you have chosen some student chairs, you are going to need some classroom desks as well. The curved ergonomic tops and colored bookboxes of Inspiration school desks look cool and really help students in class. With 18-gauge steel, height-adjustable desks, it is easy to make sure that work surfaces are at a comfortable height for your students. Choose student desks with colored accents that coordinate with classroom colors or find a complementary hue that will add a bit of diversity to the space.
Many schools prefer to have combo desks rather than having separate school desks and classroom chairs. An Inspiration student chair desk gives you the unbeatable design features of inspiration chairs combined with tough, lightweight WoodStone desktops. Combo desks save money and ensure your chair and desk heights always match up. If you have the right number of student chair desks in the room, you know that class is ready to start and students won't have to wander around looking for a missing chair or table. While classic combo desks are usually a good choice, sled-base units are ideal for carpeted floors. There is also the swivel chair option which makes it easier for students to slide in and out of their seats.
In addition to the basics, the Inspiration school furniture line also offers a great plus-shaped preschool table. The shape is great because it lets students work individually, in pairs or in larger groups all while seated at one school table. With the increased focus on collaboration and group work in today's classrooms, this shape is an ideal choice for any early-childhood setting. Inspiration drafting chairs are another wonderful option for schools with an art room or design studio.
Let the Inspiration series inspire some serious innovation, development and growth among your students. With so many great pieces and design features to choose from, students of every age in every type of classroom can enjoy contemporary styling and unbeatable comfort.
