What our clients say…

“The Indestructible Student Chairs we use seem to be just that. The first ones we ordered are just as good as our newest ones; we have never had any problems with them. There is an excellent range of colours, they are fire retardant, the castors move effortlessly, and they are comfortable – I even use one at my desk.”

Pembroke College, University of Cambridge

“Berkshire Furniture Services have provided us with the Indestructible Student Chair now for over 13 years, as we systematically replace our old chairs with these robust chairs in all our accommodation. The price is excellent, the service superb, and the actual chair is more than living up to its name: with everything student life throws at them, not one has broken. Well done, BFS and all your lovely staff.”

University of Surrey

After years of searching for the “ideal” desk chair I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Berkshire Furniture and the Indestructible Student chair. We were able to choose our frame colour and fabric to match our furniture schemes. The chair is good value, just the right size, comfortable, smart, and robust. We have been rolling out these chairs over the whole of our student accommodation for some 12 years or more and have yet to deal with any issues with the function or fabric of any chair. The chairs are popular with the students, and we simply do not buy any other type of student desk chair.

Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge

The Indestructible Student Chairs are great! They have lived up to their name throughout years of heavy usage, are really good value and they look good. They're very popular with our students and easy to move around our space as needed. Even the staff have chosen to use them in the office because they are so comfortable and easy to adjust. We valued being able to choose a colour that matched our branding and really appreciated how professional and helpful the company were throughout the ordering and delivery process.
