About Smart Home Desk Team

SmartHomeDesk.com is a customer supported website. All the researches we do as well as picking out related products, testing them, and reviewing are aimed to ease your life. So you don’t need to waste lots of time evaluating the market, we do our best to look for the most trendy and comfy furniture instead of you. You are welcome to check out our reviews and buyers’ guides to choose the product you want.

We spend solid time on testing the goods first before we make up a review. We go through the modern market to find the home design ideas that you would like (as we would). Everybody wants to know what he/she pays for and why that’s why we are here to introduce you to a list of great reviews based on real customers’ feedbacks.

We offer furniture using trusted platforms like Amazon.com to be sure of the product’s quality and warranty. So when you read a review and click the product’s link, you would be redirected to Amazon’s or other online store’s corresponding page with extra info, where you can buy the goods.

Our site contains affiliate links, so we may earn a commission when you buy something through the links. But there will be NO charge to you when you use these links. We think that’s a good deal to be rewarded for being useful in decision making. That’s how we know we are trusted, and it helps us improve our service in the right way.

Thomas Brown. Editor-in-Chief

Editor, writer, project manager, and self-starter with a keen eye for detail and thorough expertise in developing informational and educational content. Keen on launching a new digital publication dedicated to celebrating creativity in house and office furniture technologies with inspirational, high-quality content.

The idea of SmartHomeDesk actually came around when I was trying to choose some furniture for my home office (it was a Standing Desk). So the information was so widely spread and reading hundreds of reviews and comparison charts for different models was really a headache for making any decision. So, bringing it all into one simple way was quite an enjoyable task. The result is quite here, on this website, so hope you enjoy it and really save some time.
