Alternative, Lounge Seating Boosts School Branding and Spirit

Lee’s Summit West High School renovated a handful of their classrooms over the summer of 2022. Many of their pieces were upholstered with Titan blue finishes to enhance their school branding and spirit.

Their business marketing classroom was home to bar-height communal tables with bar-height, yellow upholstered stools. The room was also fitted with a standard height round table, with 4 legged, mesh back seats for a more traditional workstation. Three small sofas rounded out the classroom giving a comfortable soft seating option intended for collaboration in front of a smartTV.

The debate classroom had, by far, the most unique furniture of the classrooms. This classroom was designed specifically with the students using it in mind.  Counter height seating, traditional four legged chairs, ottomans and booths give students numerous options in a number of combinations.

Stools allow students to adopt different postures than conventional seating arrangements. Stools with high tables are useful because they give students the ability to switch between sitting and standing within the same working or studying session. Round tables combined with ottomans on glides make for easy collaboration. A traditional desk and chair option is still available for those students that thrive with a more structured, traditional set up. And lastly, booths, a very non-traditional take on classroom seating. Small group collaboration thrives when students are in a more intimate setting.
