A standing desk for your home

Although it looks like an ordinary office desk, the Flex can be so many more things: A coffee table on which to prop your feet while watching TV on the couch, a spot to enjoy a quick meal, or a cocktail table on which to set down a drink. That’s because it’s equipped with a high-tech, microprocessor-controlled lift system that raises and lowers the desk to over 200 different positions with a touch of a button. And because it’s powered by a compact lithium-ion battery, there’s no pesky cord to deal with. Best of all, you can plop it down in any part of the house.

Designed with busy multi-taskers in mind who want to get the most out of their furniture and living space, the Flex by NextDesk adapts to your needs—whether that is to have a multi-purpose table, or a multi-purpose room. Raise the table to standing height, and any room turns into a workspace. Lower it to chair level, and now it’s a surface on which to draw, dine, play cards, or do any number of activities.

The Flex features a low, sturdy base, cantilevered top, and an offset column that contains (and conceal) the motors. The desk comes in a light, medium, or dark bamboo finish, and the powder-coated metal components in black, white, or clear gloss powder. Models begin at $599.
