    Beautiful desks, easy to set up, and a joy to use


    A bit pricey, cheapest options still close to $1k

    I've got the UpWrite by UpDesk myself, which is a sit/stand adjustable desk that also doubles as a whiteboard surface! Now that I have a whiteboard-as-desk setup, I can't imagine going back to stick notes on a regular desk.

This looks a lot like the Bekant motorized standing desk that IKEA offers for around $500 dollars. I use one myself. What sets this apart--just aesthetics? And can you beat IKEA's pricing?

@bsradcliffe Excellent questions and thanks for your interest in UpDesk, Ben! The cost of a standing desk is determined by the quality of its components, and UpDesk uses the finest in Danish-designed and American-made components from Linak (our height-adjustable lifting column supplier). The overall quality and longevity of our products are what's most important to us. Will never be able to compete with IKEA's pricing; however, UpDesk is offering a commercial-grade product at a consumer price point. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with in the meantime!

Just curious - any particular reason why the prices aren't included in the product listing page?

@charleshancom That's a great question, Charles! We're actually in the process of reevaluating our current website to make for a better UX. Just so you know, our electric-lift desks start at $679 and our manual-lift desktop workstations start at $265.

Love the products but a little bit expansive in my point of view

Been using their powered base with a custom cedar desktop for about 3 years with zero complaints. Oh, and definitely get the anti-fatigue mat.
