Adjustable-Height Slab Desks for the Home Office

Whether you’ve been working from home for years or you just recently started telecommuting from the kitchen, it can be easy to forget the importance of taking a break, stretching, and getting your steps in. Sitting all day doesn’t have to be the only option, though. If you want a home office environment where you can focus on feeling good while doing good work, it might be time to invest in an adjustable-height desk (bonus: work-related desks are tax-deductible). Even better, you can kick it up a notch by adding a custom live edge slab top.

With an adjustable-height desk, you can stand and work at your computer or lower the desktop to accommodate your chair height. A programmable control lets you choose preset heights or raise and lower the desk to the exact spot you want.

The best part is that you can order just the adjustable base and make your own desktop like we did with this gorgeous Black Walnut slab. Our customer Cara found the perfect shaped slab for her office space and monitor set-up and we added turquoise stone inlays to the epoxy to give a bit of color.

I shifted from sitting to standing at work about five years ago, and I wouldn’t go back. The best thing about this desk is — it can do either! I absolutely love the look of the Walnut slab in my office. It’s truly one-of-a-kind and it enriches my daily routine. The organic live edge contrasts with my computer and office equipment, and helps keep me grounded. It’s just beautiful — I love it!
