19 Ergonomic Chairs & Desks For Children

Children love to move. Running around, climbing trees, turning cartwheels: it’s always hard to get them to sit still, and if their desk or chair is uncomfortable then it’s almost impossible to keep them in it.

Children’s bones are still developing, so if they sit in positions that put stress on their body there’s a risk they can do permanent damage to themselves. We’ve rounded up nineteen of the best pieces of office furniture for children.
