Sharing Literature with Rack Dividers in the Front Lobby

While teachers work through the summer on planning and rearranging their classroom furniture, there’s an entirely different part of your school that probably needs a little bit of attention as well. Your front lobby is the first place that parents and prospective new hires will get a good or bad impression of the school. Unfortunately, […]

No More Trouble Finding the Right Classroom Furniture

One of the biggest complaints from classroom furniture buyers, and understandably so, is that no single store has everything they need. A piece here and a piece there, but no comprehensive way to buy each and every piece with one purchase. Consumers are picky and they should be. Colors, styles, and designs are crucial to […]

Sticking with the Traditions of Fabric and Vinyl

We’ve come a long way since the 1970s, when polyester and flowered vinyl adorned our kitchen tables and chairs. And yet, despite how much we still cringe at the thought of those old-fashioned styles, fabric hasn’t changed that much in the last 40 years. In fact, nearly all major functions held in a school auditorium […]

Unavoidable Pricing on the Virco 785FLT Open-Front Desk

Occasionally, when you find a business or even a restaurant offering “specials,” a red flag goes off in your brain. You ask the obvious question: Is there something wrong with the product or the food that forced them to call it a special? And why not, right? We’ve all heard that “specials” aren’t always so […]

Virco Telos Chairs “Fortify” the Circle of Life

Every piece of classroom furniture you purchase, no matter how good or bad, will always run its course. We usually refer to this as the circle of life.

Managing the Furniture of a School Auditorium

Basketball games. Prom. Graduation. Chances are, the staff and teachers of your school have their hands full when it comes to managing the furniture of the auditorium. Someone has to move the chairs and tables for the Thursday night science fair, but then that same crew has to stick around to set up for the […]

Celebrating the Arts with Virco

Earlier this month, Paloma Elementary School (San Diego) enjoyed an entire day of painting, crafts, word games, dance, and other creative activities as part of their Celebrate the Arts Day, which they hold every two years. With so much focus on testing and academic standards, the students of Paloma were deeply enriched and widely inspired […]

Virco Creates School Furniture with Corporate Stewardship

Classroom Furniture designers are always in danger of creating a product that looks interesting, but doesn’t meet the needs of educators and students in the field. Virco operates on an entirely different ideal. They’ve established a program called Corporate Stewardship that was designed to satisfy their overall mission and deliver competitive, sustainable returns to those […]

Protecting Classroom Technology with Virco Storage

Earlier this year, Pacific Elementary School was robbed of nearly 60 iPads before anyone arrived at the California school for work. Due to the clouds and fog around that time of day, cameras were not able to pick up the best image of the thieves, but it has been made clear that they knew what […]

From One Mobile Cabinet to Another

Four months after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the coastline of New Jersey and parts of New York, Governor Chris Christie has organized what he calls “mobile cabinets” that are designed to help aid communities that are still struggling to get on their feet. “The idea here,” says Christie, “is to get into the communities that have […]
