You’ve probably already come across a hundred articles about must-haves this summer season. And we’re willing to bet, it had a swimsuit, sunnies, and an all-around tote bag on the list. Some might have also recommended you to get a Polaroid or a film camera for an aesthetic Instagram feed. Others may have suggested essential skincare products to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

And here you are thinking, “I don’t want to buy any of that.” I already have a bikini from two summers ago that still fits me. My go-to bag for the beach works just fine. I also have trusty sunglasses that I use all the time. I love my bike and my surfboard. I use sunscreen all year. The list goes on and you end up not buying anything when you actually want some retail therapy.

We’re here to satisfy your need for that shopping session by recommending an unconventional summer list. Why not invest some dough in ergonomic furniture? For some, you might think furniture is boring. It might be to a certain extent because they follow a certain form and structure to meet our needs as humans. But mind you, the furniture industry has continuously been innovating throughout the years and so many more needs of humans have been answered by amazing designers, engineers, and innovators.

This summer season is high time you address the neck and back pain you feel during the work day. It’s high time that you protect your health from the dangers of prolonged sitting. It’s high time that you work much more efficiently and productively. It’s about time that you finally get the ball running for passion projects you’ve always wanted to work on. Ergonomic furniture can help you do just that because it’s highly customizable to your needs; it makes sure your body is protected from tension and pain; it offers comfort and a luxurious work experience, and it allows you to move more conveniently while having a sedentary type of job. There are so many more benefits that ergonomic pieces can give you and we hope you listen to our case. FlexiSpot, for instance, offers many pieces that cater to a specific function; for instance, gaming or drawing.

To convince you more, here’s a non-conventional summer shopping list that will change your life not only this season but for the rest of the year and all the years to come in your lifetime.

Moreover, it has an enhanced anti-collision feature that ensures that all your expensive and heavy equipment is safe during the movement of the desk.

Height Adjustable Sewing Table

Don’t want to buy any new clothes but still want to look trendy and fashionable? You can always rework your clothes and make them look brand new and on-trend for this particular summer. It’s a very therapeutic activity to do and you have all the time to do some sewing or learn the ropes of it. It will surely be a much more convenient experience if you have the ES9W sewing standing desk. This has a height programmable control panel that is easy peasy to adjust the height of the table in alignment with the height of a child, a middle-aged adult, and a senior. The height can be set according to what’s comfortable to each seamstress (or an aspiring one) in the family.

A great feature of the ES9W is that its sewing platform can be adjusted separately. It comes with a knob allowing the user to lower or raise its workbench above or below five steps. Its weight capacity reaches up to 26 pounds and is enough to carry the weight of an average electric sewing machine.

The workspace is also very spacious because aside from the sewing machine platform, a detachable side table that measures 9” * 24” can be added to the already 43”*24” table where the sewing platform is attached.

There is also no need to worry about scratching or staining the desk frame because it is made of high-grade steel. It is guaranteed to be stable even at the highest adjustment point and because of its two-state legs, transitions are smooth and fluid-like.

This Flexispot electric adjustable drafting table will help sharpen your drawing, painting, or drafting skills. The company invented this drafting table to help artists stay inspired, motivated, and energized. It’s easy to switch in between standing and sitting positions with just one press of a button. It has a height programmable control panel that is equipped with not only up and down buttons but also four memory customizable presets.

The tabletop can be tilted from 0° to 40° to cater to different tasks---whether you’re working, writing, reading, or drawing. As with most of Flexispot’s desk products, this table comes with a safety ledge stopper that prevents devices and other desk items to slide off its surface. Moreover, this drafting table has an expandable desktop that provides an extra 9.8” space. If not needed, it can easily be folded, especially in a small area where there is not ample space, to begin with. The table has a built-in, spacious pull-out drawer for storage that keeps one’s belongings out of sight and makes sure the desk is clutter-free.
