About Us

Our Story

The Good Space was founded on wanting to help people daily. With many people switching to working from home and the growing list of home-based entrepreneurs, the need for a lasting home office was never more evident. Seeing a lack of height-adjustable desks made using local resources, sustainably sourced materials, and eco-friendly finishes, we created a product that checked all our boxes! V I S I O N is a height-adjustable desk with a work surface made locally from sustainably sourced Michigan hardwood trees, which are then hand-finished by Maya with a locally made eco-friendly clear coat. Our desks are handcrafted and sustainably built to last generations!

Meeting the needs of today while conserving the resources needed for tomorrow. Building up a climate-positive company is important to us. With our wood, sustainability comes first. If not sustainable, our 2nd choice is recycled. Our efforts for sustainability is an ongoing process, and we are continually make efforts to do better for the environment and our customers. We try our best to use local resources and try to minimize our impact on the environment. Our work surfaces are finished with a locally made water-based clear coat. It’s low VOC (volatile organic compounds), which emits less chemicals to the environment than a common finish. Click the button to find out more about our efforts.
