Recommend a study table for Primary

Postby matrix0405 » Sun Sep 26, 2010 4:25 pm

Is there any particular brand/type of study table that you find most suitable for primary sch students? I know there is a expensive crosscom brand which goes into $1K+++. Any other good brand or impt factors in choosing a study table?

Go Ikea get the adjustable height one. Not exp.
Then invest in an adjustable chair will do. :)

vHive's products are made from the same materials as Ikea's.
The only difference is that one is fixed up for you, one is DIY.

Materials are mostly the same, but the quality varies.
Certain series in vHive are quite good (& comes with a hefty price tag).
Same for Ikea :)

Matrix 0405, I've not seen the adjustable table at vHive but I know Ikea has it. They also have the one tilted at an angle (I think it's called drafting table or something along this line).

I bought 2 children tables from Vhive. Been 4 years still looking good. Cost under $100

I like Vhive office direct series. More for adults though.
Besides the huge director table, also bought matching bookshelves. Can set up nicely like a home office :wink:
