The concept of ergonomics may still be somewhat new to big-name furniture manufacturers and scientific types. But to the Amish, their hand-crafted, simply designed stand-up desks have provided users with ergonomic relief from such bothersome afflictions as back pain for centuries.
Now you can bring colonial craftsmanship to your own thoroughly modern office, thanks to Jim Gattuso of The Amish Furniture Co. in Akron, Ohio. That's because his business works with two local Amish families to create and distribute the handmade, custom-crafted stand-up desks.
Each desk offers various options, such as height, width and the wood of your choice. Available styles include writing desks, drafting desks and computer desks. For more information, visit http://www.standupdesks.com or call (888) 40-AMISH. Cost: starts at $895.
