The Dealmaster has been rounding up the best early Black Friday deals we can find for the past few weeks, but today we wanted to highlight an especially notable sale on standing desks and related home office accessories from Fully, which we’ve previously recommended in our guide to gearing up your home office.
Up through November 30, the company is taking 15 percent off nearly all of the standing desks, desk frames, converters, chairs, monitor arms, shelving, and other home office accessories in its online store. Many of these discounts have also been duplicated on Fully’s Amazon’s storefront via on-page coupons, if you’d rather shop from there. For context, street prices on Fully desks (among others) have steadily risen over the past several pandemic-addled months, so the discounts here don’t bring the lowest prices we’ve ever tracked. Still, for those wanting to adopt a standing desk today, the sale is a good opportunity to save on a few options we like.
Among the discounted items we’ve tested and recommended are Fully’s Jarvis Standing Desk and the Cooper Standing Desk Converter. While the Jarvis isn’t our top overall standing desk pick—Uplift’s V2 desk offers a handful more customization options, though it isn’t as accommodating to shorter frames—it’s still an appealing choice from both an aesthetic and functional standpoint. The sustainably sourced bamboo top on our test model helps the desk fit in like semi-high-end furniture, classing up the room while making the office feel less office-y. You can also choose from desktops made of laminate, natural wood, and whiteboard materials. Each varies in price, with laminate costing the least, and sustainably sourced natural wood fetching a higher price. And yes, you can use dry-erase markers on the whiteboard top.
Fully offers a variety of desktop shapes and sizes, including L-shaped desks and options with built-in drawers. The plethora of accessories available is one of Fully’s key selling points, too: aside from being able to design your own desk to spec (picking out color, frame, material, shape, size, etc.), you can also add a mountable shelf, surge-protecting power strips, powered grommets, all sorts of stools and chairs, dual- or single-monitor arms, cable management solutions, mountable or standalone drawers, and a selection of movement boards, mats, and other accessories. You can even add a bottle opener or a treadmill, depending on your preferences. The prices on this wide selection vary, but it gives you plenty of ways to make the desk more versatile or comfortable.
Most of Fully’s standing desks are equipped with up/down buttons standard, but you can opt for control pads with up to four memory settings for $35 more. You can also choose an “extended range” desk frame that extends from 24.5 inches to 50 inches rather than the standard 29 inches to 48.25 inches. The latter may not be totally necessary, though: as someone who stands 6 feet tall, I had no complaints with the 48.25-inch max height.
Either way, the build quality of the Jarvis is top-notch. If for any reason you run into mechanical issues, there’s a seven-year warranty on the mechanical frame and a year of coverage for the desktops.
If you already have a desk you love but still want to give a standing desk a try, we also recommend Fully’s Cooper Standing Desk Converter. It’s an ideal fit for larger desk spaces, as the 21×35.5-inch area can comfortably fit a 34-inch monitor alongside your laptop, mouse, and even a speaker or two. The keyboard tray measures 12×30 inches, offering ample room for any size of keyboard and mouse setup. The desktop can accommodate loads up to 30 lbs, while the tray can hold up to 5 lbs.
The hydraulically assisted converter only needs a quick lever squeeze to rise from desk level to 22 inches. Even with a heavy monitor and laptop setup, lifting this is easy enough to facilitate standing whenever your legs or back start getting fussy. There are both bamboo and plain black versions, so you can select based on your style. The 15 percent discount brings the typically $300 desk converter down to $254 in this case.
