BuzzFeed Shopping editor Jenae Sitzes says: "I've been using the FlexiSpot Comhar EG8 standing desk for well over a year now, and I really can't recommend it enough if you're ready to invest in a high-quality standing desk. I have the white desk with a glass top, and it looks super modern and elegant in my living room. There's a thin drawer in the front — you won't be storing anything super thick in there, but it's great for putting papers, Post-its, and other small items out of the way.
The actual standing desk feature works like a charm — since it's just me using this desk, I only use two of the four height presets: one for my sitting position, and one for my standing position. An anti-collision feature is also built in, meaning the desk will stop moving if it detects an obstacle in its way. I've found this feature can be a little hit or miss, so it's best to keep the area clear and just be attentive as it moves up and down. The child lock is *particularly* handy — I don't have kids around, but it's easy to bump into the control panel and accidentally activate the desk if you don't have this lock turned on."
Promising review: "I’ve been wanting to get a sit/stand desk for a while and this one was perfect for my home office! It was easy to put together, stylish (love the minimal design and bamboo like top), solid, and especially love the smoothness of the way it goes up and down. There are settings you can set up to your liking. The extra USB connections are helpful too. It’s not often a table this sleek has any storage, so was happy to find one with a drawer to store all my essentials as well. Highly recommend it!!" —Jessica Uzarraga

Promising review: "GET IT! I was looking for a desk to spice up my room and this is IT! It came pretty much assembled and all I did was attach the legs so it took about 30 minutes total from unpacking it to putting on the legs. Stunning piece and it is very sturdy. I love the way it compliments the room!!" —Emely

Promising review: "I have bought a handful of these for my family and personally have used it for a long time. It makes me cringe when I go to coffee shops and see people hunched over their laptops while straining their necks. This stand is worth every penny! It's very sturdy and holds my 15.6-inch laptop with no problem. I love how it allows me to maintain a good posture and not strain my neck. All of this for a fraction of the cost of a visit to the chiropractor! Would highly recommend!" —Aaron A.

Promising review: "Hands down one of the best upgrades for a home office space. It allows you to light up your workspace without having to turn on all the lights in a room. I accent this with some mood lighting in my background and it's super nice. The base is heavy and keeps it on the top compared to other knock-off brands I've tried. My vote is if you want a monitor light bar go with the Benq but a monitor light bar is a must-have IMO" —Noodles

Promising review: "This was just the thing I needed for my desk. Super convenient to have the wireless charger and the USB hub too. Very good for cable management. I really love having a stand that provides additional functionality. It's a clean design, maybe the logo is a bit large and white on black so it's quite noticeable (a shade of gray on black would be nicer), but that's OK. Great stand!" —T

Promising review: "Buy this chair. I’ve bought so many office chairs over the years.

Really comfortable, solid build, attractive, but the best feature is the wide seat. I can crisscross my legs easily to relieve the pressure in my hips, which is life-changing if you’re chained to your desk sitting in meetings all day." —Larissa Harrison

The ledge is wide enough to fit a fairly substantial case without worry, and it's a game-changer that I can just look at the screen to unlock my phone. Magic! Now I can keep those group text updates truly ~at a glance~ — without interrupting my flow until I take a break later."
