How to Choose the Right Wooden Table Top for Your WFH Setup


Proper lighting is vital to maintain focus and reduce eye strain. While natural lighting is always best, consider investing in a desk lamp with adjustable brightness and colour temperature. Look for one that doesn’t take up too much real estate, especially if you have limited desk space.

We recommend the Lumence Monitor Light Bar.


• It comes in 4 different colour temperatures and 5 different brightness levels, perfect for every occasion from a productive work day to a cozy gaming night.

• It also doubles as a reading lamp!

Desk Riser

Elevate your equipment with a desk riser for better ergonomics. By placing your monitor at eye level, you can reduce strain on your neck and improve posture. A desk riser also provides a convenient storage space for your keyboard and mouse for a clutter-free desk.

We recommend the Arka Desk Riser.


• It raises the monitor to eye level, so we don’t have to hunch over

• It comes with a compartment for extra storage. That’s like jeans with pockets—its just right!

• With a weight limit of 30kg, it could withstand even the bigger screens.

Desk Mat

A desk mat not only protects your desk surface, but also adds style and functionality to your setup. Opt for a desk mat with a smooth surface that allows your mouse to glide effortlessly while working. 

We recommend the Titus Premium Desk Mat.


• It’s waterproof — perfect to go with a cup of iced coffee.

• It’s smooth to touch and adds a soft cushion for our wrists.

• We’re giving it extra brownie points for being cruelty-free and environmentally friendly!

Desktop Organiser

The beauty of a desk organiser is its ability to keep your essentials within arm’s reach. No more rummaging through drawers or shuffling through piles of clutter to find your pen, earphones or sticky notes. With everything neatly organised and visible, you can effortlessly grab what you need and minimise distractions.

We recommend the Hestia Mini Desktop Organiser.


• It’s powerful for its compact size! Tried and tested — most of our regular stationeries fit snugly on it. Everything in one place, no more clutter.

• It doesn’t take much desk space. In fact, it gave us more desk space!

Cable Management Bar

Don’t let tangled cables ruin your workspace aesthetics. Simplify your setup with a cable management bar to keep your cables organized and out of sight. This minimises visual distractions and allows for easy access to specific cables when needed.

We recommend the Advanced Cable Management Bar.


• The wider and deeper design holds even those bulky adaptors.

• It stays out of sight, keeping the workspace clean at all times.

Storage Drawer

For those with limited desk space, a storage drawer with wheels is an absolute game-changer. Consider adding one to your workspace to keep documents, stationery and other essentials within arm’s reach.

We recommend the Tandem Mobile Steel Storage Drawer.


• It has in-built drawer compartments for maximum organisation.

• It comes with a locking mechanism to keep it in place.

• Install a saddle, and the whole thing transforms into a mobile seat!


By implementing these six essential elements into your work-from-home desk setup, you can create an environment that promotes productivity, focus, and well-being.

Take the time to personalize your desk setup to match your preferences and work style. With the right setup, you'll be able to maximize productivity, stay motivated, and enjoy a productive work-from-home experience!
