5 Favorites: Cord-Control Desks, High to Low

September 8, 2017

One of our pet peeves: the snarl of computer cords that seem to be a feature of modern life. Here are five of our favorite desks with built-in cable management solutions, high to low.

HBF partnered with Oregon’s Studio Gorm to create the Studio Rectangular Standing Height Table, which “accommodates technology without dictating function.” It has a storage shelf for chargers, and either holes through which cords can reach an outlet or an actual power outlet embedded in the table. It’s priced starting at $8,800.

The Swish Console Desk from Minneapolis-based Blu Dot has a sliding compartment to contain chargers and desk accessories, plus a cutout hole underneath so cords can reach the power supply. Made of powder-coated steel with a wood veneer top, the desk starts at $699 for the ash/white combination shown here.
