Experience quiet luxury with the Ark standing desk series

Discover Quiet Luxury for Your Home Office with the Ark Standing Desk


There has been much ado about "quiet luxury" in the press and on social media in the past six months. But what seemed to be just another passing 2023 trend has become a legitimate movement, originally starting in the fashion scene and now extending to home décor for 2024 and beyond. 

People are embracing timeless good taste that is not ostentatious but understated and celebrating quality. And when it comes to home office décor, we think our Ark series of standing desks is the perfect choice for anyone who finds "quiet luxury" particularly appealing.

A luxurious aesthetic that feels comfortable and "like home"

Fast Company, a media brand founded by two former Harvard Business Review editors, recently took things one step further, writing that “quiet luxury” is all about putting consumers' needs first, stating: “At the heart of quiet luxury is a focus on the needs of the customer. […] The ultimate luxury is having a product or experience that you feel like tailor-made for you.” We couldn't agree more. Every design of ours is focused on the needs and well-being of the customer and should indeed feel tailor-made. Plus, we think quiet luxury is the perfect theme for creating a home office that oozes sophistication and exquisite taste and makes you feel good. Curating your stylish executive home office all starts with a standout focal piece: your desk. Think luxurious textures, timeless wood, and traditionally shaped furniture. Think the Ark Desk.

💡 What is Quiet Luxury?

Quiet luxury is a lifestyle characterized by understated elegance and refined consumption, emphasizing exclusivity and discerning taste without overt displays of wealth. Other terms to describe the same concept include stealth wealth, old money aesthetic, or silent luxury. — Wikipedia

Standout, Sophisticated Style That Doesn't Feel Utilitarian

One main focus with the Ark Standing desk series was to address several frustrations people experience when shopping for height-adjustable desks:

  • Now that more and more people work from home, they desire products that do not feel like an afterthought of mere practicality that serves a temporary setup. Instead they want attractive, stylish, functional and high-quality pieces that seamlessly match the rest of their carefully curated furnishings. >> While the Ark Desks have a very distinct and distinguished look, they look great in a broad variety of settings, from modern to traditional.

  • Many sit-stand desks on the market are are rather “primitive,” wobble when elevated, don’t move up and down smoothly and quietly, and lack in the design department. >> With the Ark Desks, we addressed the most common user pain points to create quality products that combine exceptional form and function.

The Ark Standing Desks are meticulously crafted by skilled artisans and feature a strong and sturdy base — a far cry from the standard sit-stand fare of flimsy legs covered by a basic board, so wobbly and precarious that you end up using your height-adjustable desk as a sitting desk only. 

  • The Ark X, 60x26 Standing Desk features a distinctive K-shaped base.
  • The Ark ES, 60x26 Standing Desk boasts a unique wave-shaped panel design.
  • The Ark EL is styled with a creative trapezoidal leg aesthetic.
