The Michelle // Sit + Stand Desk

Room to Breathe

Named after the designer's sister, the Michelle is a tribute to the beautiful mix of the mid-century modern movement and contemporary industrial design. Pairing natural wood with refined steel, the Michelle blends professionalism and sophistication - perfect for both home office and workplace settings.

  • Clean, minimal desktop space
  • So much storage space
  • Adjustable height comfort


Get Active

Featuring electrical height adjustment from the Jarvis sit-stand frame, The Michelle offers extraordinary smoothness and comfort. The Michelle's sturdy frame ensures it's intrinsically safe to use while remaining durable for whatever work throws at you.

Rising Comfort

The Michelle’s programmable handset allows you to speedily adjust from a minimum tabletop height of 30.25” to a maximum of 55.25”. Recent studies in workplace ergonomics recommend that for every hour, spend 40 minutes sitting and 20 minutes standing. When you're at work (whether sitting or standing), keep your screen at eye level; your wrists are straight and parallel to the desk surface.

Organized Work

The Michelle desk features three drawers - two full-extension deep drawers and one pencil drawer in the middle. With integrated cable management, you're now able to power your surface from a single access point, keeping work surfaces clean and professional - ready for a hard day's work.

The desk is made from real wood that's both durable and beautiful.

The Michelle is made to order in the color(s) of your choice.

The desk is protected with a beautiful, highly durable, green-guard certified varnish.


Drawer fronts & cord doors can be made in the same finish or a different accent color.


The base is available in black, gray or white.


As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.



Recycled / recyclable content

Made predominantly of steel, which is highly recyclable

Air Quality & VOC Emissions

Good - low VOCs, water-based used in lacquer.  Slight odor to the finish for a while as it cures.  If you are sensitive to odors we recommend the Rubio Monocoat.

Wood selection

All solid woods selected have increasing populations (i.e. more wood is growing than is being cut)


Are these desks made to order?

Yes, we handcraft each desk to order, so please allow us time to construct your desk. If there are any time considerations or special circumstances regarding your order, please let us know right away so we can take care of you. We can sometimes prioritise desk orders if requested. This incurs an additional fee to pay our workers for overtime.

Is the back of the desk in the same finish as the front?

Yes! The back of the desk will appear very similar to the front – the idea is to allow use in a range of interiors - whatever setting or space you require.

Is there any assembly required with the desk?

Yes, but it’s extremely straightforward. The desk ships in two separate sections. The assembly level is in line with a flat-pack furniture project with a quick assembly of the frame and then attaching the desktop to the frame with a screwdriver.

How long will it take to get my desk?

As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.

Can I see color samples?

Yes, we offer color samples free of charge here:

Are you the designer?

Yes, I am – I have been a woodworker since I was a kid (I’m now in my 40’s). I have a passion for art & design and a couple of engineering degrees. My furniture is a mixture of those experiences. I design, and we make everything in our shop in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

What kind of wood is it?

We make the desk bodies out of solid walnut, cherry, white oak, or maple. We use baltic birch plywood for drawer boxes and internal parts (where appropriate). 

A Desk that Mirrors Your Movements

With a wide selection of options, the Michelle has the flexibility to match your home or office interior with the transformative power for ergonomics.
