    The Bekant would be so much better if it was a hybrid standing desk

    Is the standing desk out in Australia yet?

      check your local store for stock?

        My local store opens in November, and I doubt I'll be able to get near it for months after that.

    All of these desks are so tiny! I can't manage my home office with less than 2 metres of desk space. 3 monitors, space for physically writing with pen and paper, reference book stands, plus ipad, a lamp big enough to actually be functional, and assorted ornaments. Planning to buy a 2m solid block glued acacia benchtop from Bunnings (is this an Australian story?) for $99 and fit recycled legs, slide under an old set of drawers. No vinyl veneer, no craftwood, under $120 AUD. Magic.

    I miss the more substantial IKEA desk with a hutch mounted along the back edge. These tiny surfaces with fixed under-desk cupboards really don't cut it.
