Interestingly, our “About Us” page is really all about you! That means putting you first: meeting your needs and doing everything to keep that promise. We care about your time frame, we care about keeping you within budget and we care about your custom needs, whether color, design or quantity. You see, Academia Furniture, born from family businesses begun over 100 years ago, proudly maintains their demanding standards – real people providing quality, service and solutions.

We understand dealers need to answer to school budgets, so our pricing stays competitive.We realize you need a range of products, so we offer everything from classic to state-of-the-art styles, ergonomically correct and eco-friendly. We host seminars on new classroom trends, and give you the most up to date cluster and modular designs.

And because we put customers first, our products are found in thousands of schools nationwide – in New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Miami-Dade, and San Francisco, just to name a few.

Academia’s concern for making you look good means thinking ahead – frames fully (never spot) welded, thicker gauge steel than industry standards and concealed rivets so kids (and their clothing) remain unharmed. We even invented a new material which we patented called WoodStoneTM – more durable than laminate, lighter than hard plastic.

From prestigious public schools to new charter schools, students and teachers report being delighted with Academia’s quality, comfort, versatility and cost. Let’s see how good we can make you look.
