About VS America, Inc.
VS America, Inc. provides adaptable, ergonomic, and environmentally-friendly educational furniture solutions which allow for the creation of flexible learning environments. VS America originates from a history of ergonomic innovation that dates back to 1898.
At VS, we believe successful learning should balance the needs of the body, mind, and soul. We always encourage mobility and natural curiosity. VS’ agile products empower students to engage their senses while learning, creating a heightened focus, stronger motivation, and a sense of well-being.
We offer our furniture and installation solutions on a cooperative contract available through OMNIA Partners, Public Sector. Learn more about the contracting process.

It’s crucial that each and every student has a chair and table which suits their individual height. With ergonomic furniture, students can sit dynamically and experience physical, mental, and developmental benefits. Physical well-being and flexibility help create ideal conditions for authentic learning. VS offers chairs and tables in varying sizes, or that are easily adjusted to the appropriate height, so every student has their perfect fit.
VS furniture combines a uniquely distinctive design with resilience and durability. Our furniture is fully-assembled in our manufacturing plant so it’s delivered in one piece to the school – ensuring quality control every time.
VS furniture undergoes extensive testing, ensuring the utmost quality and durability. We go to unusual lengths to design safe furniture that weathers rambunctious students and the test of time.
For VS, sustainable business practice means always behaving responsibly towards people, the environment, and society. We produce our furniture in an environmentally friendly way, and we are actively committed to greater sustainability.
Now, more than ever, it’s so important to have furniture that’s future-proof and can be rearranged to meet the need at any given moment. Mobile furniture on wheels that fit easily through a standard 3 foot doorway ensures you can quickly expand beyond the classroom and into hallways, foyers, and gyms as needed. Quickly stack unneeded tables and chairs out of the way, allowing for easy cleaning of floors and more physical distance between students.
