Reception Furniture

Invite your visitors to wait comfortably with reception furniture from Hertz Furniture. Choose from our full range of quality reception seating, including modular couches and guest chairs. We offer tables and reception desks to suit any style lobby, from traditional to modern.

What lobby furniture should you buy? Your reception area furniture should include great seating as well as smaller items including coat racks, umbrella stands and magazine racks. With 45 years of experience in the furniture industry, you know you can trust Hertz Furniture to give you everything you need in the office.

Why is reception furniture important?

Every office needs to have its own character. Your guests and clients are going to understand the character of your company through your reception furniture because that is the first thing they see when they come into your space. When it comes to your office, you only have one chance to make a good first impression, so choose your reception furniture very carefully.

While individual taste is important, you need to keep the purpose of your office in mind. If you're furnishing an executive office, you will probably want to choose pieces that project your professionalism and experience. On the other hand, if you're purchasing for a pediatrician, then Mickey Mouse and Co. just might be the way to go.

How do you choose reception chairs?

One thing every reception area needs is reception seating. Because clients might show up early, it is important to make sure that you choose the most comfortable seating you can find to make every wait a comfortable one. Your guests and clients will definitely appreciate it.

Should I get accent tables?

If you have the space and the budget, you can strategically place some end tables between the chairs so you can promote your company or services with pamphlets or brochures. If you don't have reading material of your own, then you can put out magazines or newspapers so clients can pass the time in an enjoyable way. If you don't have the floor space to spare for end tables, you can try some compact magazine racks and literature stands.

What should I look for in a reception desk?

A well-planned reception desk that takes your secretary's needs into consideration will give your office a big efficiency boost. If your office is the type where clients are constantly coming up to your secretary's desk to ask questions, then a desk with a reception counter is highly recommended. This will ensure the secretary's privacy. For secretaries who work with confidential information, such as medical records or tax forms, a high counter can be crucial.

Something else to look for in reception desks is good storage. That means file drawers, regular drawers, locks, and computer-friendly features. Wire-management grommets in the desktop are a big plus. Your secretary doesn't want a wire-cluttered desktop any more than you do. If you really want to make sure that she gets what she needs, ask her what her preferences are before you do any reception-desk shopping. She's the one who's going to be using it – and she knows what she needs in order to function at maximum efficiency.

What will make my waiting room better?

Now that the basics are covered, you can go on to the smaller details. Umbrella stands can be a really convenient item to have in your reception area. They will keep your other reception furniture from getting wet because your clients had nowhere else to put their dripping umbrellas. Coat racks are great for similar reasons. Another item that might seem trivial but totally isn't is a waste receptacle, a.k.a. trash can. Although these may sound unsightly, they need not be. As a matter of fact, some of them are really quite attractive. If you want to have an eco-friendly office then get some recycle cans for the staff lounge and cafeteria.

If some of this sounds confusing, don't think you're clueless. Choosing office furniture can be quite a challenge. At Hertz Furniture, we have a whole team of design experts ready to help you find the best reception furniture for your needs. Whether you're refurbishing an entire office or just looking to upgrade an existing floor plan, Hertz Furniture will be happy to assist you.

Ergonomic school furniture will change the way your students learn. When children are positioned properly throughout the day, they are able to focus longer, learn better and go home without worrying about aches and pains. Starting off young with ergonomic classroom furniture will help students develop important motor skills in the proper way.

Hertz Furniture understands that a healthy learning environment starts with ergonomic chairs and desks so students can stop squirming and focus on their learning. Ergonomic school chairs have become increasingly popular, but they are only one component in a formula for creating a proper work space. Training tables and school desks work in conjunction with chairs to ensure that hands and wrists are positioned properly for writing or typing.

A 21st century school has to have technology in the classroom, and that often means bringing in computers. Children are learning to utilize digital resources from a very young age, and it is important to make sure that they start off typing with correct positioning. If proper habits are developed from the beginning, maintaining them will be a natural, effortless process.

The benefits of starting young with ergonomic furniture aren't limited to creating the right habits. Some of the most common muscle and joint conditions adults suffer from are developed over years of improper posture and positioning. The earlier students learn the correct ways to sit and work, the less likely they will be to develop pain later.

Many professionals spend countless hours every week seated at desks. Ergonomic office furniture is key for helping everyone from computer programmers to lawyers to accountants maximize productivity and look forward to work every day. One thing to think about when choosing ergonomic desks or office chairs is that different people need different designs and configurations. Ergonomics is all about making sure that every individual can create their perfect fit with the right positioning. There is no single solution that will fit every person. Investing in the right furniture will pay off in the long run because it will reduce workplace injuries, causing less missed days of productivity.

There are certain arrangements that need to be made to enable one who is seated at an office desk to work in the proper position. Things that are often needed throughout the day should be placed within reach so people don't have to stretch or twist into unnatural positions to retrieve them. Knee clearance is necessary to enable feet to rest flat on the floor. The computer monitor should be at eye-level to eliminate eye strain, and a keyboard tray should rest under the worksurface so wrists are flat while typing.

Start creating your ergonomic classroom today with this wonderful collection of vibrant and supportive school furniture. The Inspiration classroom chair features a double-curved back with flex action so students can lean back in a natural posture. Integrated lumbar support fits the natural curve of the back. Inspiration combo desks have work surfaces with a curved inner edge so students can sit properly without having to stretch in order to access necessary supplies. With a selection of heights to choose from, children of all ages can sit with their feet resting flat on the floor and backs in the ideal position. Hertz Furniture has ergonomic school desks in a variety of shapes so you can create a flexible classroom that is furnished for proper positioning as well.

Computer tables with recessed monitors can help create an ergonomic office or school. With the computer screen positioned at a natural viewing angle, everyone can work more comfortably. NOVA computer tables put the monitor at an ergonomically-beneficial 35-degree angle, which is the position in which one naturally holds a book. Whether you are furnishing a school computer lab or corporate training room, ergonomic computer tables should be on the top of your list.

Anyone who works at a desk needs an appropriate ergonomic office chair. This is the piece of furniture that must endure the most wear and tear and has the most dramatic impact on how the body is positioned during the workday. Hertz Furniture has huge selection of ergonomic chairs to fit a variety of budgets and styles. With appropriate adjustable features, they will help school principals, secretaries and students stay on task and get the job done right.

A school is only as good as its furniture. If students and teachers aren't comfortable, conducting classes becomes way more challenging than it needs to be. Ergonomic tables and appropriate classroom chairs will keep all members of your school community happy. Designing an ergonomic classroom takes planning. If you need help figuring out which school furniture will best support your students, contact the experts at the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.
