As another calendar year end comes to a close, it’s a perfect time of year to begin preparing for a smooth restart for next year. Taking the time now, while your ideas from this fall’s education journey are still fresh in your mind, is one of the best times to engage our team in helping to craft your best learning spaces. We’re here to support you with all our core items available on short lead times for end-of-year delivery.
As you plan changes to your space, know that we’re here to support you in ensuring your spaces are ready for students. By purchasing sustainable, student focused, flexible furniture you are making both a smart financial decision and a meaningful one, as Natural Pod furniture is made to last and evolve with the needs of educators and learners.
Our core products of tables, benches and shelving are still our most in-demand items. The feedback we’ve had on why, is because in addition to our products being naturally healthy (no nasty toxic glues, finishings or VOC’s), and sustainable, they are innately flexible so that they can adapt to almost any unplanned changes in space configurations your organization might be planning. Our matching benches are very popular for the same reasons, their sustainability, durability and their adaptable and multi-use functionality. Benches tend to offer more versatility than chairs because of how easily they can be moved by the students, while also having other uses such as being used as shelving, or creating room delineation when needed. Their streamlined design also helps learning spaces to look less cluttered and calmer than multiple chairs. Then if you need storage or shelving, we have numerous options, from low and rectangular to large and curved, all depending on your objectives.
If you would like to place an order and have your furniture ready for the start of new calendar year, or to discuss how our sustainable learning furniture can support your students’ learning goals please contact us.
Our exclusively designed Natural Pod square tables and benches are our core components for creating beautiful and collaborative learning environments, lending themselves to both the present physical distancing requirements and more collaborative learning styles once restrictions are eased. The table designs are all based on flowing curves that are not only beautiful but allow them to interlock with other adjoining tables creating longer or wider work areas. They come with either fixed or adjustable height legs and the undersides are strengthened so they are strong enough for use as a stage as well.
Our matching benches complement our tables perfectly, using the same flowing curved profile and finger friendly edges. They come in a variety of heights that not only work so well with our own table offerings but also play well with other existing classroom furniture, plus benches offer tremendous versatility over their single seat cousins. As with all Natural Pod furniture our benches are very durable and strong, yet light enough for kids and educators to easily move them. This enables great flexibility, allowing educators to meet the needs of different activities and different learning styles.
We know space and storage efficiency in your classroom is so important, so we have designed numerous modular and flexible shelving and storage solutions in various sizes to suit differing needs. All our furniture pieces are dual or multi purpose, and our shelving is the same. Our larger pieces are very space efficient, completely movable with lockable castors and as well as traditionally placing them against a wall, ours can be used to create room division or to delineate different learning spaces. Our lower linear combined seating and shelving is highly versatile. The items come in a variety of sizes, and the modular pieces can be combined to create different heights of storage and seating arrangements as needed. We’ve also created smooth curve shelves to fit corner spaces or in order to aesthetically change a layout direction. All our shelving and seating is highly durable and stable, and suitable for use in grade schools, early learning, kindergarten, preschool, daycare, and further education.
You can enjoy knowing these items are made with trees harvested using Forest Stewardship Council® certified source materials. Natural Pod is certified under Sustainable Northwest’s FSC® Chain of Custody Group (C012237). FSC® is the leading not-for-profit forest management certification organization. They help set the world’s most respected environmental and social standards for responsible forest resource use. Their guidelines help ensure our forests are respected and well managed for future generations.
