Review Summary

The Ergonofis Sway solid wood desk is the most popular premium standing desk made in Canada today. It comes in three sizes and five solid wood species, all sourced from Canadian forests. The base is made in the USA and features a touch-screen inlaid handset to control the height of the desk. Our only concern about the desk is the short one-year warranty on the very expensive desktop, and five years on the motors and electronics (as compared to 15-year comprehensive warranties on some premium American brands). We’ll be able to say more about that after the product arrives in our labs for testing.

Where to buy Buy on Ergonofis
Positives Montreal-based Ergonofis has established itself as Canada's premium standing desk brand, and the Sway is its most popular solid wood desk line.
Negatives The limited range of sizes and colors, and relatively basic features of the standing desk are actually on par with what other Canadian standing desk sellers offer, if not a notch above, but not nearly as broad as what many American brands offer today. The warranty is quite short relative to the price tier, again compared to what the most popular American brands are offering these days.

Bottom Line

Ergonofis is a premium brand, known for their gorgeous solid wood desks. The Sway is their most popular desk. Paired with a highly-reliable American-made lifting base, this is a no-excuses standing desk that is sure to be an eye-catching talking piece in any Canadian's home or office. The only thing we wonder about is why the warranties are so very short, given the premium price tier.

The Ergonofis Sway standing desk is the most popular desk from ergonofis. It comes in three sizes, 24″ x 48″, 30″ x 60″ and 30″ x 72″. The desktop is available in five different species of Canadian hardwoods: Cherry, White Oak, Maple, Birch and Walnut. The slabs are between 1-1/8″ and 1-1/4” thick and handcrafted with a clear matte water-based lacquer finish for Maple, Birch and Cherrywood or a clear matte catalyzed lacquer for walnut.

The desk has dual electric motors that provide 300 lbs of lifting capacity (minus the weight of the selected desktop_ with a transit speed of 1.5 inches per second. The dual-stage (three segments) legs have a height adjustment range of 22.7″-48.7″ (including the desktop thickness of 1.25″). The frame also has an integrated cable management system and comes in black or white.

The Ergonofis Sway desktop is made in Canada and comes with a limited one-year warranty. The base is made by OMT Veyhl in the USA and comes with a 10-year warranty on the frame and five years on electronics (learn more about made-in-USA lifting bases and about how to compare standing desk warranties).
