Choose from basic school desks, school desks with book boxes and double-student desks. Save on both floor space and expense with combo desks and tablet-arm desks. Exclusive series such as Innovation, Inspiration, Illustration and Educational Edge add diversity and flexibility to any classroom; wheelchair-accessible desks allow all your students the opportunity to excel. You'll find the best school desks for today's classrooms at Hertz Furniture.
School desks are available in a variety of materials as well as styles. The most important material to consider is the work surface. If you are looking for a low-budget option, high-pressure laminate is smooth and offers basic damage resistance, but will begin to show wear and tear through the years. Hard plastic is scratch- and stain-resistant, easy to clean, and often includes a convenient pencil groove. Hard plastic desktops will stand up to years of student use- and abuse.
A third option is Hertz Furniture’s exclusive WoodStone desktops. WoodStone is produced by Academia. It has the same damage resistance and easy cleaning as hard plastic, but costs and weighs much less. If you are looking for the most durable, budget-friendly option, WoodStone is the way to go.
A strong desktop needs sturdy support, and that is what the desk frame is for. It is a good idea to check if the models you are looking at have steel frames, and if so, f what gauge. Although a 16-gauge steel frame is stronger than an 18-gauge steel frame, you might decide that you don’t require the higher degree of toughness. In addition to the steel gauge, the frame may also have a U-brace for added reinforcement. U-braces make desk frames much stronger. Some desks have unitized frames. Unitized frames can stand freely; they are not held together by a desktop or bookbox.
Speaking of book-boxes, students are sure to appreciate the convenience of built-in accessible storage. Book-boxes can be made out of metal or plastic and rest just underneath the desktop. They store binders, notebooks, textbooks, school supplies and more. If there is a concern of open storage becoming a distraction during class, lift-lid book-boxes are an easy solution. They offer the same accessibility and convenience but will prevent students from playing becoming distracted by desk contents during class.
Combo desks offer the book-basket alternative. Wire-mesh book-baskets can rest directly underneath attached chairs. They keep books, notebooks, and anything else students need within reach yet out of sight.
Combo desks are super convenient because they provide proportionate chairs and desk surfaces. These attached units eliminate the need to push-in chairs or make sure that there are enough seats for the desks in the classroom. Chair desks are available with the same selection of surface materials as classic school desks
Desk legs come in a selection of styles. Adjustable-height legs can suit students of different sizes. They enable you to provide all students with a perfectly-fit desk, and give you the flexibility to change around your school furniture among various classrooms and grades. Classic four-legged school desk models are available as well as T-leg, the three-legged Innovation model, and sled-based combo desks.
Once the structural features of a desk are considered, you can move on to stylistic aspects. All desktop materials are available in a choice of colors. If you are looking for that extra splash of vibrancy or coordination, Educational Edge desks have colored edge banding that can be coordinated with your classroom. Another excellent choice is the Inspiration school desk, which has a coordinated bookbox and boot-glide color.
When considering the optimal desks for students, don’t forget to accommodate their teachers. The teacher’s desk is an important piece of classroom furniture. Hertz Furniture offers teacher’s desks in a variety of styles, that can suit any budget. Teacher’s desks are available with different drawer configurations, materials and work surface sizes.

No matter what size your classroom is, how many students you have, or what your budget is, Hertz Furniture will help you find the optimal solution for your needs.

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.
