Flexible furniture can make an excellent addition to any classroom space. Whether your students are working collaboratively or just need a break from standard desk seating, flexible seating options can provide additional versatility and comfort. There are many different types of flexible seating, but these must-haves are a great place to start exploring your options.
Choosing the Right Flexible Seating Options for Your Classroom
Not every classroom has the space or need for specific types of flexible furniture. Choosing the right fit for your space and your students is important. There are three groupings of Teacher Favorite seating options to consider.
Soft seating should be cozy and comfortable. It makes a great option for collaboration areas or the classroom library space.
Active seating can be a good fit for students who want to be moving while they focus. This can serve as a substitute for a standard desk chair for fidgety students.
Some soft and active seating options are mobile, but truly mobile furniture can be moved around and used all over the classroom. These options are either light for easy transport or on wheels.
