About Us

K-12 Furniture

We don’t make K-12 school furniture as part of what we do. It’s the only thing we do.

We design for young minds. With a century of experience, we’ve learned what makes pre-K-12 education different from any other environment (spoiler alert: quite a lot), and have made it our business to cater to those unique qualities. About Smith System

News: Smith System® is now part of the Steelcase® family of brands!

All new movement optional seating.
