The Brussels Standing Desk features a manual hand crank that adjusts the top height from 29.5" to 48" for seated or standing use. The manual operation means the desk does not need to be placed near an electrical outlet and there are no unsightly cords. The 1.75" thick desktop features a warm walnut-look laminate for easy cleaning. The metal base is finished in black. This versatile modern desk can be used as a writing desk, to house a computer or for crafting.
