Choosing the right size classroom furniture is an essential first step in creating an optimal learning environment. The University Furniture Collection provides multiple table legs and chair sizes to fit every classroom need. To determine the ideal table and chair heights for your classroom, keep in mind that the space between the seat height and the table should be 17 cm to 21 cm. This provides the most desirable amount of space for children to fit their legs under the table and to comfortably rest their elbows.
