With a variety of bases, finishes and accessories, you'll find the best types school desks for your classrooms at Hertz furniture. Our wide selection is sure to include a number of great options for your learning space. When you buy student desks from Hertz Furniture, you know you are getting the best in both quality and convenience.
What is the most important thing to consider when choosing a desk? The most important consideration when purchasing school desks should be the work surface material. This key feature determines how long your desk will last and how it will look throughout the years. While laminate desktops are the most budget-friendly option and they do offer basic damage resistance, they do not have the durability of WoodStone or hard plastic. Hard plastic is scratch- and stain-resistant, and maintains an attractive appearance through many years of use. WoodStone offers the toughness of hard plastic but at a lighter weight and better price.
Although the classic rectangular top is great, innovative work surface shapes offer other excellent options. Petal classroom desks work well individually or arranged in collaborative clusters of six. They are the perfect shape for creating a learning circle. Their large desktops give students plenty of room to work.
What kind of desk is best for a flexible classroom? If you are looking for a shape that is great for smaller clusters, the Innovation series is an excellent option. Although rectangular desks can be arranged in groups, it is harder for students to see each other when they are facing one particular direction. When Innovation desks are arranged in a cluster, all students face the middle, making it easier for them to see each other and collaborate on group work. They work well in clusters of two or four.
If you are looking to save space in the classroom, two-student desks are the way to go. They provide ample space for individual students and are conducive to work in pairs. The double desk from Allied Plastics features a double-tier bookbox between the two sides for accessible storage. We also have double desks without a bookbox in between.
What features should you look for in a desk? Whichever desk configuration you choose, there are a number of features that are always convenient to have. Adjustable-height desks are especially useful if your school caters to students of various ages and sizes. Rather than having to make sure that you have appropriately-sized desks for each grade, you can simply modify desk heights as needed. Another great option is the U-brace. This bit of added reinforcement makes desks super sturdy.
School desks don't have to be bland and boring. We offer a number of different options that will brighten up your classroom. The Inspiration and Educational Edge2 lines feature colored bookboxes that are available in a choice of vibrant hues. If you just want a colored accent, Educational Edge student desks feature bright edge banding in a choice of attractive colors. For a fun twist, petal desks are available with colored edge banding and leg uppers to brighten up your classroom.
It is important for students to have an appropriate place to put materials that are needed for class. Book boxes are a great remedy for cluttered desktops. Rather than students stacking all classroom materials in front of them, writing surfaces stay clear with only necessary materials on top and the rest inside the bookbox.
Book boxes come in a number of different styles. The classic open-front style provides students with easy access and keeps contents hidden. If you are concerned about students playing inside their desks during lessons, lift-lid book boxes keep materials close at hand while preventing students from fiddling inside. If you want to monitor desk contents, open view book boxes offer full visibility.
Hertz Furniture's huge selection of student desks includes a number of great styles and models for students of any age. With so many options to choose from and a lot of factors to consider, it's easy to get overwhelmed. If you need help choosing the best model for your school, don't hesitate to call the Hertz Design Center for free project planning advice.

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.
