Don't Take this Work Thing Sitting Down with BDI's Lift Desk

BDI Sequel Lift Desk, 60" x 24", Espresso Stained Oak

BDI’s Sequel Lift Desk is a beautiful excuse to stop slowly killing yourself by sitting all day.

The Lift Desk, as you can see, is a premium upgrade to your office furniture. The micro-etched, black glass top looks great with any setup, and has proven impervious to scratches, as much as I might accidentally try. Four wood accents are available to choose from, and the larger model (the smaller one already feels huge to me) includes a welcome drawer.

Choosing BDI for all your standing desk needs means aesthetic and logistical compatibility with their whole line of office furniture. We also checked out their rolling filing cabinet, which, while totally unneeded in my life, is the nicest filing cabinet I’ve ever used, with really great wheels.


One area where the Lift could stand to rise higher is cable management. With due acknowledgement to the fact that I’m constantly rearranging cables to test different products, the included cable shelf under the Lift isn’t big enough to comfortably fit a double-wide power strip. I ended up attaching it underneath instead.

Motorized standing desks aren’t cheap, and the Lift is no exception. Even something like this Varidesk that Shep is a fan of is out of most people’s price range. We recently covered Autonomous’ ErgoChair, and we’ll be looking at their much more affordable standing desks shortly.
