This isn’t a sponsored post. I just wanted to share my cool new desk.
Thanks to the magic of Instagram, I spotted a tiny corner of a friend’s desk as she was sitting on her patio. And I immediately asked her where she got it.
It began as a Kickstarter campaign. And enough people liked it to begin selling them regularly. And a sale price of less than $100 convinced me that it was worth the gamble.
Guys – this thing is truly cool. It’s made of bamboo to keep it light, and the holes are meant to keep the laptop from overheating. It’s wide enough to sit on my lap comfortably (practically anywhere – my couch was just convenient!), with enough distance from the screen to be a little more wrist-friendly too. And it lets me keep my mouse to the side for design work instead of having to use the touchpad. Win-win.
Oh, and there’s a little spot in the desk to put my phone. The width is enough to allow me to keep my case on the phone, and there’s a hole in the bottom of the slot that lets me attach the charge cord if I want (for those wondering, it also fits an iPad, but I don’t use mine with computer work, just the phone).
May not seem like much until your job consists of being on the computer (and then throw in some blog and design work at night, and you’ve got an extreme need for a comfortable setup 24/7). So even though I’m not in the office, I still have a comfortable desk. And one that, like Heidi, I can enjoy in the sun.
