While The Human Solution offers plenty of value-priced laminate sit-stand desk options like the Uplift 445, you may be wanting an economical option for now that you can someday turn into that beautiful wood desk you’ve got your eye on.

But right now, you may just want something you can throw that piece of particle board you’ve got lying around on top of so you can make your tiny laptop go up to a standing position. Luckily, we have the UpLift 700 Electric Sit-Stand Desk Base with individually-motorized, crossbar-free legs that you can attach to just about any top.

The simple, functional design of your 700 base makes the transition seamless.

Now you’re in your eccentric, filthy rich phase. You trek to the South Atlantic to harvest rare and endangered St. Helena Gumwood.

He is responsible for spearheading the very popular Music Friday at THS, in which a theme is picked and everyone plays a song in turn, culminating in the entire office ceremonially playing “Who Let the Dogs Out,” no matter what the theme, every Friday at 6 pm when we close.
