Perfect minimal setup for productivity and gaming

Minimal Setup productivity

34 inch Ultrawide Monitor

At the center of the setup sits a 34 inch LG ultrawide paired with a silver monitor stand. The LG 34UC88-B has a curved screen with a resolution of 3440 X 1440 in a 21:9 aspect ratio, providing an increased screen size compared to a regular 16:9 monitor. Moreover, this monitor covers 99% of the sRGB color spectrum, making it ideal for color grading, perfect for graphic designers, photographers or anyone that requires an accurate panel. The LG 34UC88-B also comes equipped with a 60Hz screen refresh rate (not ideal for gaming but keep in mind its not supposed to) and USB 3.0 quick charge.

As of now, the monitor is currently 700$ on Amazon which is expensive when compared to regular monitors, but in the ultrawide niche, it certainly is not cheap but neither expensive. I would recommend waiting for a discount or checking out other similar monitors that are cheaper but have the same main characteristics as the LG 34UC88-B such as the LG 34WN80C-B or non curved monitors like the LG 34WN650-W (2560 X 1080).

Logitech MX Master 2S: The best

Known as the best productivity mouse in the world, the MX Master 2S is a beautiful masterpiece, improving on the nearly perfect MX Master with a more ergonomic design and introducing a new white color option.
The MX Master 2S features both vertical and horizontal scroll wheels, fully customizable macro buttons and wireless connectivity between several devices.

Metal and Glass Qi Wireless Charger: Clean and modern

The Block Wireless Charger by Native Union is a aluminum finished wireless charging, designed in collaboration with Tom Dixon. It has sleek tray to store devices and the Qi coil has a transparent cover, showing off the charging mechanism. Even though the quality is superb, this aesthetic charger comes at a hefty 200$, which makes it one of the most expensive Qi compatible wireless chargers. Only someone with a particular attention to detail would splurge on such accessory.

Desk Accessories

The ultrawide monitor floats above a walnut stand by Grovemade which provides storage space for miscellaneous items and allows to conceal the wireless charger. Coming at 220$ it certainly is expensive when compared to an IKEA monitor stand but the quality is exceptional.

The Grovemade stand also serves as a perfect place for the Audioengine A2+ Plus wireless speaker with Bluetooth connectivity that come in a clean looking glossy white.

The current desk mat is not shown in the picture but it is from from our store, the Large Vegan Leather Desk Mat. This mouse pad is made from high quality vegan leather.

The desk itself is a kitchen countertop supported by the popular IKEA Alex drawers. Moreover, the lamp is also from IKEA.

The Ergonomic Herman Miller Embody Chair: Minimal and functional

The modern, unique looking chair is the Embody from Herman Miller, well known to be one of the most ergonomic chair with tons of adjustments and customizations to fit anyone comfortably. Herman Miller provides a 12 year warranty on this product, so you know you are covered for a long time.

The only downside of the Embody is its steep price tag of just under 1500$, which is an exorbitant amount for a simple chair. All in all, the real question you should be asking yourself is: How many times will I replace my cheap 200$ chair in a 12 year period ? Is it really worth it to save a bit but to waste your time buying new chairs or is it better to invest in a professional grade one ?
