When furnishing a classroom, there is nothing more important to keep in mind than the needs of the student, both as individuals and in a group. As they will spend the vast majority of their time in the room sitting at a table or desk, having a chair that is comfortable, usable, and safe for each pupil is incredibly important. However, classroom chairs, like the students who will use them, are not one size fits all. At Worthington Direct, we believe that selecting the right school chair for your student can be simple and incredibly worthwhile if you keep in mind a few essential questions about the individuals in your class:
