See the Mateo Sit-Stand at Ironsmith Coffee

Remote work changed us all, and it’s here to stay. Now it’s time to transform your workspace.

We’re Mateo, and we made a sit-stand desk that stands out from the rest. You deserve a beautiful workspace that inspires you to do your best work (from home).

Here’s the situation:

The home desk has been an afterthought.

It’s time people stop using their kitchen counters, laps, beds and ironing boards as a workspace. When you’ve got a functional, and well designed workspace your work and well being noticeably improves.

There’s a lot of cheap desks out there.

The Mateo price is there for a reason; this is a buy-it-for-life investment. Chipboard table tops and flimsy metal frames are inexcusable in our opinion. Mateo craftsmen use high-quality, solid wood and precision machined accessories.

So why Mateo?

Been there, done that (a lot).

We’ve turned years of experience designing and manufacturing commercial productivity solutions and spun off into a small business with a big mission: Create the ideal work-from-home offering.

Form, meet function.

There’s an art to what you do. There should be an art to where you do it. Not only does our desk serve an important purpose, it has been designed by an artist and built by craftsmen that care about every single detail.

Get your steps, sits, and stands in.

Sit-Stand desks reduce back pain, improve mood and boost energy levels. There’s plenty of proof behind the fact that a body in motion stays in motion. The traditional sitting desk is obsolete.

Creatively Cultivated

What people are saying

  • “Instantly had one of those ‘I got to own it’ moments when I saw this desk and the search was over. I’m excited that the desk not only can function for a work from home station, but as a creative space as well.”

    Kevin G

  • “I put off getting an adjustable desk since March…wishing that someone would make a more function and ‘good looking’ one. And bam, wish granted.”

    Katrina D

  • “It looks SO GOOD — well worth the wait! You got a client for life! Thanks again for the help and the great customer service!”

    Arthur C

In the press

  • "...he dreamed of designing a sit-stand desk with rich wood and gentle lines, and that didn't have the stark metal legs and dangling wires"

  • "Your practice and your business doesn’t need to be two separate things. You make sure the business stands up, and is something you can stand behind."

  • "...focused on developing an object to meet the changing working habits of Americans: a minimalist sit-stand desk."

  • "His quest to design a worthy adjustable height desk has attracted the attention of Gensler and other design savvy clients"

Assembly + Care

Care & Maintenance

It may look complicated, but you’ve got this! Assembly is very straightforward and we have an instructional video and provided easy to follow printed instructions. The desk can be assembled individually no problem, but everything is better with a friend. Plus, we’re always available to help out if needed!
