Moving to a new office is a pain, but it's also an opportunity. Recently, I moved from one town to another and took the opportunity to test out the latest office products, including a standing desk. These are my top picks for what will make you productive and stylish.
My top pick for a standing desk right now, the NookDesk uses an electronic switch to raise and lower the height, and three memory settings. What I liked best is the customization options, including the wood, color, add-ons for a desktop or laptop tray, and even speakers.
Dell Canvas 27 ($1,699)
With a long, spacious desk in your office, the Dell Canvas is an ideal partner for your desktop or laptop. It's a massive 27-inch touchscreen; the included stylus provides a few alternate tips for sketching out ideas and drawings. The anti-glare screen is a wonder of engineering. It requires a second main computer.
Shinola Detroit Bookshelf Speakers ($1,500)
The best bookshelf speakers give you plenty of audio options. The Shinola Detroit set lets you stream from a wired connection, Bluetooth, or even a USB-C cable from your Android phone. Sound quality is amazingly good--distinct, loud, and warm.
Steelcase Silq Chair ($970)
One of my favorite new desk chairs, the Steelcase Silq shown above is designed for working at a desk but also shifting easily to have a chat with someone, use your phone, or lean back and watch a TV news feed. It's stable and secure for typing, but also comfortable on your back and joints.
Wayfair Professional Etagere Bookcase ($239)
With shelves made of fir wood and standing 66.75-inches tall, the Wayfair Etagere Bookcase is a great way to store your office gear. It's incredibly stable (weighing almost 50 pounds; included brackets hold it to the wall) and has a classic old-school look.
