UPLIFT 975 Height-Adjustable Standing Pedestal Desk

item#: UPL975

If you only have a small space available for your desk, but want to have the option to sit or stand, try our UPLIFT Space Saver Standing Desk. The UPLIFT Space Saver has a two-leg desk frame, for added stability over a one-leg design, while still offering a low profile and small footprint. A variety of desktops are available to fit your space, whatever your needs or limitations might be.

We have discontinued this item.
The UPLIFT Space Saver Standing Desk is a great replacement.


UPLIFT Desk named one of the top five standing desks by Lifehacker readers! The UPLIFT Desk is recommended by the LA Times UPLIFT Desk featured in Forbes Magazine

The UPLIFT 975 Height-Adjustable Standing Pedestal Desk, with its sleek speckled graphite laminate desktop less than 40'' wide and its sturdy, efficient single-leg pedestal base, is a heavy duty and stylish height-adjustable standing desk solution that allows you to save space and money while upgrading your work space to a fully height adjustable standing workstation. Able to smoothly adjust from a minimum of 27.75'' to a maximum of 45.5'' in seconds, the UPLIFT 975 is an economical way to let you periodically stand at your workstation throughout the day, which has been proven to improve circulation and respiration and increase calories burned. Soft-touch electric up/down controls at the front of your desktop and adjustable leveling legs at the feet of your height-adjustable base allow you to easily adjust the UPLIFT 975 Height-Adjustable Standing Pedestal Desk to get your desktop exactly where it needs to be, whether sitting or standing, improving your health and focus at work.

Please note: While a pedestal, or single column desk, has a smaller footprint, making it ideal for limited space areas, stability is increased greatly with the addition of a second leg. For our most affordable and stable two-leg desk, check out the UPLIFT 900!

Very disappointed in lack of proper disclosure on this desk and poor customer service
July 2, 2015
In standing position, this desk is unacceptably bouncy. This "bounce" is acknowledge upon questioning to the company, but not adequately disclosed (actually, not disclosed at all) on the website that I read prior to ordering. There is a sentence buried on the site (good luck finding it) that essentially says that desks with 2 and 4 legs are more stable than desks with 1 (obviously). There was zero indication that in standing position (the whole reason I bought the desk) the desk would have a substantial bounce.
Materials seem sturdy and good quality.
Does NOT deliver on the core reason for being - not stable / unacceptable bounce. I had a few friends / family members try it out in case I was crazy, and all said they couldn't work on it. Impolite customer service person until I mentioned that I wanted to talk to the owner. Then he got very polite.

Horrible user experience
June 29, 2015
I ordered and paid to have this desk set up and in the standing position. It has a tremendous "bounce". I literally feel seasick. When I called the company, I was told that there is a warning about this on the website, but it requires quite a treasure hunt to find. Given the degree of the bounce / lack of stability, I believe the company violated good consumer practice by not making this warning more obvious. The company representative on spoke to on the phone today was flip. I requested that the company cover the costs to disassemble and ship back the desk which is completely unusable for me. He made me feel like my head was on backwards and like I was asking for something outrageous. I just don't want to be out any money for a desk which I feel I bought based on lack of full information because of the way the instability warning showed up (or didn't),

I had to have another one at the studio where I work full time.. 5 stars. Heck, 10 stars. Great value, long warranty. What do you want?
