Standing Desks throughout History

Posted by

Many think that Standing Desks are just a contemporary fad or trend, but you'd be surprised to learn that Standing Desks were popular in the homes and offices of influential minds during the 18th and 19th centuries. For example, one of the key American Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, designed a six-legged standing desk with an adjustable work surface and extra pegs to add stability.

And there were also some creative artists who used Standing Desks to get their juices flowing. These include writers Charles Dickens, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf, and music composer Johannes Brahms.
