Comfort for the Modern Age

Integrated with the Jarvis sit-stand desk frame, The New Horizons desk matches a smooth movement with dependability. The stable structure ensures it's safe to use while remaining durable for whatever opportunities reach out for you, just over the horizon.

Integrated Cable Management

Power and data access are built into the desktop surface with a cable storage shelf placed into the back of the frame. If you use a thread-type monitor arm, center grommets can be used to lift your screen from the tabletop.

Free Yourself from Clutter

The long pencil drawer is perfect for stowing away papers, pens, and laptops, ensuring you have plenty of space to tackle your latest projects.

Rising Comfort

The New Horizon'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 standing for 20 minutes. 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.

The desk case is available in any of our Baltic Birch Finishes.

The desk is protected with a beautiful, highly durable, water-based, and low-VOC urethane finish. By special request, the table top can be finished with Rubio Monocoat - a molecular binding coat that is awarded Eurofins indoor air comfort gold standard.


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.

Reach for the Stars

The New Horizons sit-stand desk matches sophistication with the warmth of natural materials, accommodating the natural rise and fall of a day’s work.
