Inspired by the classroom
September is a month full of transitions. Summer turns to fall and leaves begin changing colour. New routines are established or the old routines make a return. And most significantly, students return to school.
At Choice Office Furniture, we outfit schools and other educational institutions with educational furniture designed to contribute to comfortable and effective learning. Educational furniture is created to withstand heavy usage while inspiring learning. Although the furniture is primarily used in classrooms, educational furniture can also fit into homes or workplaces. Here are our top picks for educational furniture that can be used outside of the classroom.
Educational furniture tends to extraordinarily multipurpose – the furniture is designed to accommodate a variety of users with even more uses. As a result, educational furniture can suite the array of needs needs in home offices and workplaces. For example, the Huddle multipurpose tables created by Hon look like simple tables but are complex in their accessories and options. Choose from three different base types, including a nesting base that allows for simple storage. There are power hubs, data ports, wire management strips and two types of feet. The Huddle tables can be used in a home office as an auxiliary work space or in offices as meeting or group work spaces.
Just like classroom tables, educational seating is multipurpose and suitable for private offices or public areas. Classroom chairs tends to be ergonomic yet light, in addition to playful yet professional. By Trendway, the Jet series of chairs are a complete suite of stacking task and stool chairs that come with vinyl or upholstery seats. The task chairs have pneumatic seat height adjustment with tilt tension control, making them suitable for everyday office work. For a chair that stacks and stores easily, the Jet stackers can be stacked up to 40 chairs high.
Height adjustable tables are another example of multipurpose furniture that can be used inside and outside the classroom. In schools, height adjustable desks are used for individual and group study, allowing the student to set the table at the optimal height for ergonomics. This makes the table ideal in home offices or in workplaces requiring ergonomic flex stations. The Apollo height adjustable desk by Heartwood Furniture can extend from a height of 25 inches to nearly 50 inches.
As we return to the routine this September, get inspired by modern educational furniture in your home or workplace.
