I've been waiting for another one of these for a while! I'm slowly updating my setup, and I really love working from it.

My Desk in the Ikea Bekant with a danish-oil finished beech tabletop (also from Ikea). I love it as it works almost perfectly (sometime the lifting function can be a little jerky), and I don't really see a use for preset heights as I change mine a lot.

My recommendation would be to get a desk plant or two, and having some art or pictures on the wall in order to make you feel comfortable and happy!

Lovely set up. ❤️ Yes, I agree with the wall art and plant idea that is something I already have on my list to get.

What kind of light strip do you have behind the monitor?

Thanks so much! I'm really happy with it, I'm just trying to figure out what to hang in the middle of the wall as it looks a bit sparse.

They're the cheapest ones Amazon has on offer :) I believe they're this one. I got them off a friend so I don't know exactly.

Make sure you post your final setup on here when you're done, it'll be great to see how it ends up :)

This might be my favorite so far just because of how clean it is

Thanks! That’s kind of you! On my headphones stand there’s also a little bottle terranium which is another attempt to get some life at my desk :)

Why don't you get a displate.com ? They're great and I'm pretty sure you'll find something you'll love

I kinda dig this setup. Looks minimal and straight to the point. By the way, where did you get that stand from and what brand is it?

Cheers! Yeah I don’t really like having too much on my desk, it’s easy to get dusty that way.
The headphone stand is from Ikea, I don’t actually know what it’s called but it was about $8 if I recall. Is that what you’re after?

After watching so many cool setups... this one still standouts because of how clean this looks. I would also aim to make my setup like this in the future, currently a single laptop user.
