StandDesk has a humble yet impressive beginning. Co-Founder Steven Yu developed his very first standing desk to help his roommate, Ryan, improve his health. Ryan had tried other methods, like a stricter diet and an intense training schedule, but nothing seemed to work. So Steven made a desk out of computer boxes, a piece of wood, and a whiteboard. After just four weeks, the standing desk produced noticeable improvements. Ryan was visibly healthier and had even lost 10 pounds.
After seeing these results first hand, Steven dedicated himself to helping other people improve their health and mood through reasonable and affordable ways. At the time, there wasn’t a standing desk on the market that was both affordable and automatic. Steven decided to build it himself. By 2014, StandDesk had made $650k via a Kickstarter campaign, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Custom Build Standing Desks
The most well-known product for obvious reasons, these standing desks are both automatic and affordable. These desks are fully adjustable, designed to move with you through height-adjustable, durable steel legs and an advanced dual motor. With the ability to support up to 400 lbs, this motor also lifts and lowers faster than the competition.
Not only are these standing desks durable and well-designed, but they’re also stylish. Customers can choose tops that range from sleek black, white, bamboo, natural wood, and even reclaimed wood.
StandDesk also offers ergonomic office chairs. With a stylish Italian design and state-of-the-art components, this chair is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Even when you decide to lower your standing desk to sit, these ergonomic office chairs still ensure that your posture is perfect.
The forward tilt of the chairs let you move closer to your desk without compromising your posture. But you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for health. The business class recline feature allows for 70+ degree reclining. The seat is also slidable, and the lock-and-tilt mechanism ensures that your back will always have support.

StandDesk also offers multiple accessories to keep your workspace organized and stylish. It has a wide selection of products, including:
- Cable trays

StandDesk’s claim to fame is that their standing desks are ultra customizable.
For the top of the standing desks, customers can choose from a range of materials:
- Jet black

- Light bamboo
- Reclaimed wood
- Black walnut
- South American walnut
- White oak
There are several options for the frame color as well, which range from black, white, and gray.
The customization doesn’t stop there, either. Customers can choose what kind of controller they prefer. There is the 2-button handset and the deluxe memory handset. The deluxe memory handset is the height of customization. It remembers your ideal standing and sitting positions at three present heights, intuitively partnering with you to ensure consistency.
