I recently acquired a new desk. Until that point, I had been using the same Ikea desk that I received from my parents in 1982 as a new junior high school student. It was a very well used and sturdy desk, but it was time for an upgrade. Mostly, I wanted to upgrade because I wanted a sit-stand desk, which would help me introduce more movement into my day. I did a lot of research on sit-stand desks and learned that the most frequent problem is with the motors that do the raising and lowering of the desk. Thus, I decided to invest more significantly into a higher-priced desk with a strong warranty. The basic warranty on the motors in the legs is 5 years, but I extended that to 7 years. I figured it might be worth it, given that I will be raising and lowering the desk multiple times a day, pretty much every day of the week. Here's my new desk shortly after it was delivered, with Pippin doing his usual auditing task to make sure all the parts are present.
So, now I have the Ergonofis "Sway" model of sit-stand desk and I just love it. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I think it's great! I still have the cupboard and drawer units from my old desk underneath because I haven't quite figured out where to put all the things from those units. I'm trying to make some room on shelves in the home office. As you can see, it fits my many desktop items and accommodates my monitor arm with ease.
Here's a little detail I added to my new desk arrangement. I purchased a cute little bear-shaped mug warmer to keep my coffee mug warm in the mornings. It is powered by a USB plug into my computer.
Here's my mug warmer, on my desk, keeping the coffee warm in one of my favourite mugs. It is designed to look like knitting on the surface.
