Sit-Stand Desks Taking Over! November 03 2014

We just went to another furniture convention called NeoCon to check out some potential new manufacturers to do business with and add to our site.  One thing stood out, and that is the transition away from typical office furniture (wooden with drawers) toward clean, modern designs.  Within this shift was the surprising fact that 75% of the potential new manufacturers we spoke with were featuring sit-stand desks in their booths! ...

New Bike Desk is Out! May 22 2014

We have been saying for a while, after the great success of our treadmill desk, that someone needed to create a bike desk.  I even wanted to design one (but no way do I have the time!).  Anyway, someone finally came up with the bike desk, and it's not just an entry level option.  They have created an incredibly high quality option, including: -an extra padded seat with 19 different...

How Does a Desk Get From You to Me? April 29 2014

We don't often get asked this exact question, but MANY of the misunderstandings about the timing and process of procuring office furniture are centered around this idea.  How, literally, do you get your desk?  Let's say you order this great looking desk from Sharelle Furnishings.   How does this cool desk go from some warehouse somewhere to your workplace, or your home office?  Good question--I'm glad you, um, asked.  :)...

To Amazon or Not to Amazon... April 09 2014

  This is how I picture Amazon.  There, so my cards are on the table.  They are a giant.  No, in today's marketplace they may be THE giant.  And they are getting bigger all the time.  And just like the picture, as they grow bigger they seem to be less able to understand us quaint little people, the average everyday consumers who make their giant engines hum. I have used...

What's the Deal with Free Shipping?? March 10 2014

The first time I was introduced to the concept of online purchasing with free shipping was through Amazon.com.  They had a deal back in the day (long before Prime) when you could get free shipping if you bought more than $25 worth of goods.  That was always a nice perk, and I remember pushing my purchases up over $25 several times to get the free shipping (showing how effective their...

Best Manufacturer of Wood Desks February 05 2014

Many people want to find a stylish wood desk that is of a very high quality but won't break the bank.  Maybe you're one of those folks who have ordered a desk that did not fit this description and you know the disappointment that can come with buying a desk, waiting for it to be shipped to you, and having it arrive--only to find out that it is of incredibly...

Damage... Happens December 19 2013

It's one of the most frustrating parts of this industry, but damage happens.  When you are shipping furniture across the country (or even across a state), damage can occur.  With the manufacturers we use, who go above and beyond with packaging their products well, it is rare.  But when you entrust a desk to a carrier, you cannot keep a camera on the shipment and make sure they treat it...

LTL Shipping OR "Why didn't they bring the desk to my door?!?" October 17 2013

A major point of confusion for customers not experienced in the shipping and receiving end of the business world is the LTL vs. small parcel shipment issue, and the business vs. residential shipment issue.  This can cause major confusion and frustration if you are not aware of these distinctions as they relate to shipping.  So I wanted to offer a quick tutorial of sorts. Definitions: Small parcel shipment - this...

Modern Computer Desks Can Transform Your Space (without breaking your bank) September 02 2013

There are so many great office desk options out there, and as a professional in this area let me just encourage you to stay away from the cheap, poorly made versions!  You can get a functional office desk for under $100, but if you buy one of these pieces it certainly will not last you.  I have seen hundreds of modern, sleek office desks in my line of work selling...

Trend: Emergence of Sit-Stand Desks August 15 2013

Recently I have been getting many questions about whether we offer any sit-stand desks, or standing desks.  If you've never heard of such a thing, they are desks that are adjustable, so that you can sit for a while and work and then stand up.  It is a new trend that is becoming more and more popular lately, enabling people to avoid sitting and working at their computer all day...

Trend: Simple is In July 02 2013

Of all the computer desk trends that have become evident to us, one of the clearest trends is toward the simple.  Here are two of the more popular desks we sell:   As you can see, what stands out about these desks is that they are clean, simple designs.  While the desk on the left has more detail and more functionality (the CPU stand, the monitor stand, the keyboard tray,...

"Do You Have that in Stock?" Stocking Furniture & Freight Issues... June 10 2013

As a full-time customer service person in the furniture industry, one of the most consistent questions I get is whether a desk or chair or tv stand is in stock.  What they are asking is not whether it is in stock somewhere, but literally whether I have it in my physical possession at our company's warehouse.  I completely understand this question and think it's totally legitimate.  After all, before I...

Solid Wood vs. Manufactured Wood vs. Particle Board May 02 2013

One of the most common questions we get asked by customers who are interested in purchasing a computer desk is about whether our wood desks are made of solid wood. Or they ask what we mean by manufactured wood. Or they just call and say something like, "Your desks are not made of that particle board junk are they??" We do our best to respond to every customer in an...
