About Fully Standing Desk
Fully is an innovative office furniture company that sells pieces for both home and commercial office spaces. Fully furniture is intended to optimize workflow by providing clients with comfort and movement encouraging products, like the popular Jarvis standing desk or the Tic Toc chair.
Fully was acquired in late 2019 by a larger furniture company, Knoll, allowing the now partnered companies to mutually grow in capital and reach. This deal and more was reported by Forbes, while Fully products have also made media debuts in The NYT Wirecutter, Apartment Therapy, USA Today and Slate, just to name a few.

Fully Desks Review
Looking for a smart desk at Fully.com? Fully makes a desk for everyone! Different body types, preferences, and even age (see the Jaswig standing desks for kids!).
Their desk-specific product lines feature standing desks in various sizes and shapes to fit nicely into different spaces, each with their own set of adjustment, as well as desk converters to elevate existing desk space. This Fully review will feature a few of their bestselling adjustable standing desks.
Fully Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk Review
If you’re desiring a space where you can feel good in your body and do your best work, consider investing in an adjustable standing desk. The Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk is a sustainably made, adjustable-height desk with a natural appearance that seamlessly incorporates itself into any home or office space.
The desktop is made from Moso (Mao Zhu) species bamboo that has been grown and matured over a 5-year period without the use of pesticides or fertilizers, and is preserved with a water-based polyurethane coating. The metal desk frame has adjustable components that allow a lifting capacity of 350 lbs and a height range that permits floor seating at its lowest, and 50 inches of height at its highest (only available with the “extended range” option for $20).
The “Design My Own” option allows customers to customize the shape, colour, and size of their desk, along with added accessories. The top finish is offered in a natural bamboo or a dark bamboo for an additional cost of $35. The shape can be the standard rectangular shape, or curved for an extra $20. The desktop ranges in size from 30×24 inches to 78×30 inches (at an additional cost of $290).
Originally, the Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk was priced at $649 but it’s currently on sale for $599. With the Affirm payment installments option, the Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk is also available in varied installment packages of three, six, or twelve monthly payments. At its lowest, it’s available for 12 monthly payments of $55, at an interest rate of 15.14%.
Jarvis desks are covered by an all-inclusive Fully Jarvis warranty of 10 years, on all frame components including motors and electronics.
Fully Remi Standing Desk Review
In lieu of the renowned Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk, The Remi Standing Desk is Fully’s ‘next best thing.’ This Fully desk is an adjustable-height desk for the budget-conscious consumer. With the popularity of the Jarvis standing desk in mind, Fully created this desk option to accommodate customers hoping to get the same high-quality at a lower price.
The Remi Standing Desk uses the same double motor system that permits the powerful and smooth lift of the Jarvis Standing Desk, though the lift capacity is half of the Jarvis (250 lbs), and the maximum adjustable height is 45.75 inches. The most obvious difference is arguably the material–a laminate finish in black or white.
The “Design My Own” option allows customers to customize the shape, colour, and size of their desk, along with added accessories. The desktop ranges in size from 38×27 inches to 58×27 inches (at an additional cost of $100), making it a perfect fit for any home, office, or dorm room.
The Remi Standing Desk is priced at $449 but keep in mind that this product can be purchased with the Affirm payment installments option of three, six, or 12 monthly payments. At its lowest, the Remi Standing Desk is available for 12 monthly payments of $41, at an interest rate of 15.14%.
Fully Chairs Review
For every Fully desk, there is a chair with it’s own diverse set of features to best meet your all-day working needs. Fully’s chair specific product lines feature traditional chairs for both sitting and standing, as well as stools, and kneeling chairs to accommodate postural support.
Each chair is made with “active sitting” in mind, permitting movement so that you can keep your blood flowing, and your mind engaged throughout the work day. This Fully review will feature two very different top sellers with equally optimal benefits.
Fully ReGeneration Desk Chair by Knoll Review
The ReGeneration Desk Chair by Knoll is an eco-friendly, adjustable, and comfort-first chair that encourages natural movement for those long 9 to 5 days. The simple yet thoughtful design prioritizes flexibility that conforms to your body movements as you naturally shift throughout the day.
Comfort features include a flex seat with three sides of seat edge flex and seat depth adjustment, weight compensated Dynamic Suspension control, and synchronized recline with a resistance feature for greater upright support. The contoured back frame is made with elastomer Flex Back Net for much needed lumbar support.
“Low profile arms” are made to fit under your desk, ensuring that you can move in and out at your own comfort level. The adjustable-height seat lever is placed under-seat at an arm’s reach, making small adjustments quick and easy from a range of 16.4 – 21.6 inches. The seat weight capacity is 300 lbs.
The ReGeneration Desk Chair is partly made from recycled materials, substituting soy and corn byproducts for plastic where possible. It is BIFMA level® 3 certified, Rated SMaRT© Sustainable Platinum, and GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold Certified. The cushioned fabric seat is available in 4 colors: black, blumarine, pebble, and olive.
The ReGeneration Desk Chair by Knoll was originally priced at $610 but this desk chair is currently on sale for $519. With the Affirm Payment Installments option, it’s available for as low as 12 monthly payments of $47 at an interest rate of 15.15%. As an added bonus, this product has a 12- year warranty.
Fully Luna Standing Desk Stool Review
There are more desk chair options than ever before, and this stool could be the right choice for you. The Luna Standing Desk Stool is an aluminum, adjustable-height stool with a rubber bottom intended to support your weight at whatever angle you feel most comfortable. Its unobtrusive design makes this stool easy to move around, or to seamlessly incorporate into an existing office space.
With the Luna Standing Desk Stool, Fully foresees a different kind of sitting, where the user has the option to flex between traditional standing and sitting positions in order to activate different muscles and stay engaged at work. The adjustable-height range is 23.6-33.5 inches and the stool can support up to 300 lbs of weight.
According to Fully, sitting at an angle closer to 120-degrees opens your hips, improving both your posture and your circulation, and you don’t have to worry about teetering too far because the rubber base is slip-resistant.
The seat cushion, at 13 inches in diameter, is made from an eco-polyester that provides firm support, in 5 colour variations: black, white, blue, red and grey. With a 5-year warranty, the Luna Standing Desk Stool is priced at $199.
Fully Accessories Review
Like their desks and chairs, Fully’s accessories were designed to “better support the human body.” With that in mind, the brand created a line of attachable furniture accessories with customers needs in mind. From monitor arms, LED lamps, keyboard trays, standing mats, and more, Fully’s got you covered.
This Fully review will feature two of their most popular office accessories: the HAG Footring and StepUp and the Jarvis Monitor Arm.
Fully HAG Footring and StepUp Review
Add even more versatility, comfort, and support to your favorite desk chair. The HAG Footring and StepUp Footrest are two separate products that are advertised together to offer a combination of a step and a footrest. There’s no need to worry about additional assembly, as neither products require the user to disassemble their HAG chair during setup.
The above photo depicts the HAG Footring, which is a ring that can be added onto HAG chairs to accommodate different heights. The ring measures 18″ x 16″ x 6″ and is available in black, silver, and white for $95.50. It’s to be noted that this attachment is not compatible with a 150mm lift.
The attachable footrest is a flat foot surface that attaches to the base of a HAG chair, and swivels 360 degrees around the base on a pair of castors. Give your feet a rest with the Hag StepUp Footrest for $148.
Fully Jarvis Monitor Arm Review
According to Fully, raising your monitor into your natural line of sight can bring your spine back into a natural alignment, and subsequently rescue users from enduring back pain. The Jarvis Monitor Arm is an adjustable monitor arm that can be attached to desktop grommets, or be clamped onto the back of a desk to elevate your computer and clear up desk space.
The adjustable arm has a range of 13.2 inches with a maximum height of 19.8 inches above the tabletop. It supports monitors between 13 and 32 inches in size, and 2.2 and 19.8 lbs. Thes stand is designed with wire management in mind, and comes with a removable VESA plate compatible at 75 or 100 mm.
The Jarvis Monitor Arm comes in three colour variations: black, silver and white. With a, this product is priced at $99.

How do I reset my Jarvis desk?
The Jarvis reset procedure is outlined on the “How to Jarvis” page for desk assembly and troubleshooting information. If your electric Jarvis desk is not working properly, your Memory Preset Handset may display one of the following codes: “RST”, “RESET” or Fully Jarvis e08 (a common error code). If any of these codes are displayed, you’ll have to perform the reset procedure as instructed below:
Press and hold the down arrow on your Memory Preset Handset until Jarvis reaches its lowest position, then release. Hold the down arrow a second time until the RESET code is displayed on the screen, though keep in mind that some handsets do not read out codes. This may take up to 30 seconds. Press and hold the down arrow one more time, until your Jarvis lowers slightly, then rises slightly and finally stops.
According to Fully instructions, your Jarvis has now been reset and is ready for use!
