Working on a Metaphor, Literally

metaphorBreaking news. A stable economy. A steady rhythm. These are just a few of the metaphors we use as a part of our daily conversations. We speak in metaphors because they help us describe our experiences and our feelings. Perhaps this helps explain why Virco created a collection of chairs and chair desks called the Metaphor Series. Take a seat in a Metaphor Chair and you’ll start talking about it with all kinds of figurative language: it’s like sitting on a cloud.

Within the Metaphor Series, is currently featuring a four-legged Sled Based Chair and Desk unit that happens to be environmentally friendly with a bow front made from Fortified Recycled Wood. The combo we offer includes a bookrack and backpack hanger, a hard plastic and laminated top, multiple seat color choices, four top finishes, and three frame finishes. We offer the Sled Based Chair Desk at an extremely low price that’s almost impossible to ignore.

Keep in mind, however, that the Sled Based Chair Desk is hardly the only feature of the Virco Metaphor Series. Notable products from include the Virco Stack Chairs, the Virco Lab Chairs (with an adjustable height gas pump), and even the Virco Office Chairs (with their own adjustable height gas pump). Explore our selection of other Virco products and you’ll find that our prices are unbeatable.
