Fall For this Sale

Desks are a very important part of schooling, which is why we are convinced you’re going to fall for our newest sale. NationalSchoolFurniture.com is currently offering 12% off all desks!

All you need is the promo code, DESK12. Use that to get your discount!

We offer any type of desk you need. Take a look at a few examples of our desks below, and why they work well for different students or educators.


Open Front Desks


These desks are great for students, particularly those in younger grades. It gives the opportunity for students to leave things they need day-to-day in their desk, while taking only relevant items home. Students often leave some notebooks, craft supplies, pencil bags, and sometimes books in these desks. It keeps the open desktop free for students to spread their work during the day.


Lift Lid Desks


These desks are also great for younger students who have items that are permanently meant for the classroom. Lift lid desks have additional protection, as nothing can be easily swiped from a desk without notice, and nothing can fall from the desk once placed inside. Like open front desks, it keeps the desktop clear for working.


Combo Desks


Combo desks are a great choice for high schools or sometimes middle schools, where students are moving between classrooms over the course of a day. These desks can be easily moved around for group work. The table is perfectly sized to hold books and notebooks, with a basket below to store items the student does not need to use.


Table Top Desks

302182If you already have all the chairs you need, then table top desks are the perfect way to go. We carry individual desks to go with your chairs, or longer tables that can sit multiple students. These are also good for grades where students move from classroom to classroom, as most desks do not offer any storage. They are designed to be large enough to fit student supplies that are being used, and supplies they need to store for the class period.


We also carry desks for teachers, offices, receptionists, and much more! Check out our full stock, today!
