Re: Standing Desks - Experience & Recommendations

You don't need an adjustable desk -you need a corona-virus crisis and kids doing home-schooling.

Every time you sit down to work you'll be standing up again in no time to help with some maths problem or French translation.

And it's like that all day long: up, down, up, down, up, down....

Thankfully, at this particular moment in time I have no children to drive me crazy during a months-long lockdown...

Re: Standing Desks - Experience & Recommendations

Nice chair.


However IMHO and IME, IKEA Markus is THE most comfortable inexpensive office chair on the market.

We have three of them and are very happy.

Re: Standing Desks - Experience & Recommendations

I have 3 Ikea electric up/down desks.
They all work very well.
I bought the first one years ago and it is still working like on day one (it's the model you have on the photo).

Ikea has now 2 different bases, the new one is slower. I hase a useless bluetooth connection.

Look good bot unfortunately wayyy too big/tall for me. I want one that is discreet and can slide under a desk as my office is in a corner of my (thankfully pretty large) bedroom.

Hmm interesting, sounds like you are happy with them. Do they wobble at all? And does the model I linked in the photo have the new slower base now?
