Our Story

At UPLIFT Desk, we've been designers and purveyors of comfortable, healthy work since 2002. When we couldn't find a perfect height-adjustable standing desk, we decided to make our own. Our award winning standing desks are rated #1 on Wirecutter, Forbes, and others. We also design ergonomic chairs & stools, monitor arms, keyboard trays, file cabinets, power/data rails, acoustic/privacy solutions, task lighting, and many other office furniture accessories. Our mission has remained the same: to help every person stay healthy, happy, and productive when they work.

Whether your work happens in a home office, cubicle, or C-suite, you can benefit from our quality ergonomic office furniture that adapts to your unique needs and style. With our reliable team of experts here to help you piece together the workstation that keeps you and your employees healthy, you can rest assured that knowledgeable professionals are standing behind you every step of the way with an industry-leading warranty to back up every product.

We are that team, we're here for you, and we’re excited to help you build the office you've always known you needed.

Our core values guide our business practices while we guide you in your ergonomic evolution. Our mission is to put an end to unhealthy work environments for good.

Work Better. Live Healthier. UPLIFT Desk.

Create a Healthier Workplace

Great work starts with a well-functioning workspace. No one understands this better than our founder, mechanical engineer, and Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE), Jon Paulsen. Yet throughout his twenty years of workplace assessment and product design experience, Jon found a lack of companies with fulfilling and reliable customer service prepared to outfit ergonomically-evolving offices to their full potential.

Jon started The Human Solution in 2002 with the intent of designing, making, and bringing the best adjustable height standing desks and ergonomic products to the world. In 2011, UPLIFT Desk was born when we created our very own line of height adjustable standing desks with the goal of making industry-leading sit stand solutions at an affordable price.

Since then, we've added ergonomic chairs, standing desk converters, and nearly every type of desk accessory you'd need - creating a one-stop shop for healthy and productivity-boosting office furniture. In fact, we can design entire flexible office spaces for you with our space planning software. Our goal is to make UPLIFT Desk the brand you trust.

1) Helping Our Environment


2) Working with Those Who Care


3) Creating Happy Employees


4) Helping Your Business Flourish

Helping Our Environment

We are, at our core, a local company seeking to change the world one happy and healthy customer at a time. By starting small and helping our communities through our many public outreach projects and by making eco-conscious choices regarding our long-term environmental impact, we hope to achieve this. For example, as a result of our partnership with the National Forest Foundation, for every solid wood desktop that we sell, we're able to plant five trees in the national forests throughout the U.S. We offer environmentally conscious desktops made from all-natural Moso bamboo, rubberwood, reclaimed wood, and 100% recycled medium-density fibreboard (MFD). We also utilize recycled aluminum in our desk frames.

We say it all the time - healthy living doesn't start and stop at work, it's the little choices we make every day that add up to a healthy lifestyle. We take this seriously, whether it comes to choosing products with little to no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), donating desks to non-profits that support eco-friendly causes, or doing business with manufacturers with eco-conscious values like ours. We want to make a big difference in many people's lives while having a small environmental impact.


Working with Those Who Care

Building and nurturing relationships with manufacturers and companies that promote positive change in their hometowns is another goal of ours. We seek to create relationships that are mutually beneficial for manufacturer and seller, helping everyone achieve their highest goals at work.

Our products are designed in the USA, and many are made here. We choose to work with manufacturers that embody our values, including integrity, quality, and positive environmental impact. By doing so, we are able to create long-lasting and fulfilling working relationships with the makers of our products, which enables us to deliver higher quality products than our competitors. We're not braggers, we just try to be big picture thinkers.

Creating Happy Employees

When you're comfortable and happy, you work better. Pain, strain, and injuries are kept at bay by engaging in better postures at work and simply moving more. Your mood improves when you have the chance to move more throughout the workday, alternating activities like standing, perching, active sitting, and walking.

From day one at UPLIFT Desk, our team members learn the principles of ergonomics through firsthand experience, working with the products we produce, and enjoying their myriad of health benefits, like better circulation and improved focus.

We foster team member happiness and excellence every day, in ways big and small, through our individual ergonomic workspaces and in-depth ergonomic training. When we're happy, we more easily spread that workplace happiness on to you. It's a win-win scenario that we've really gotten used to.
