The age of laptops made way to the rise of more ergonomic solutions. We have seen so many impressive products in the past that offers both convenience and functionality for more efficient and comfortable laptop use; from laptop stands, sit-stand workstations, desktop risers, etc. Though these product can definitely improve your comfort level in your workstation, be it in your home office or in your cubicle’s desk, they don’t really allow you to use your laptop in a more relaxed position, especially on the go. Enter lap desk – the ergonomic solution that lets you comfortably use your laptop on how it was originally designed – on your lap. One good example of this product is the Sofia+Sam lap desk, an ergonomic solution that you can travel with anywhere. What makes this product unique, if not better than others in the market?

Who is it for?

Sofia+Sam lap desk is obviously made for laptop users, especially users who love to recline on their seat and place their laptop on their lap, or lounge in their sofa while watching TV. It’s a great gift for students and travelers.  And more importantly, it’s perfect for recovering patients. It’s also a good study surface, excellent for writing, reading, or even doing crafts in bed.

The thick layer of this lap desk is made up of luxurious foam that provides excellent comfort while being placed on the bed, couch or in the car. It’s not only the desk surface that’s made up of high quality materials, as the foam itself is a furniture grade memory foam which keeps it in shape at all times.


Angled Design for Ergonomic

Most lap desks we find in the market are either too flat or simply not high enough. This product however, comes with a highly ergonomic design that allows comfortable use, even after extended period of time. Made for excellent ergonomics, the Sofia+Sam lap desk is angle designed, keeping your laptop (books, magazines, crafts, etc.) at the perfect angle so you can work comfortably whether you’re sitting on your bed, couch, or even inside your car.

Design and Features

Sofia+Sam lap desk is a lap desk with memory foam underneath, making it the ultimate portable workspace. Its work surface is large enough to accommodate most laptop computers, and definitely more than enough for e-readers, tablet, etc. While memory foam underneath delivers the soft, comfortable and ergonomic support. It also comes with a detachable USB light that works as desk lamp, allowing users to work, read and use their computer even in the dark.


Soft and Angled Design

This lap desk features a slight tilt (angled design) which mimics the design of regular keyboard and provide optimal ergonomic for your hands and arms, putting it in neutral position as you work on your laptop.


With Memory Foam for Unbeatable Comfort and Comfortable Support

The memory foam underneath is premium quality; a top of the line memory foam that ensures the softest, smoothest and most comfortable feel. It molds the shape of your leg as you put it on your lap and gets back into its original shape once you lift it up off your lap.

Bottom Line

You get pretty much what you expect from Sofia+Sam lap desk – large work surface, soft and comfortable cushion underneath, and the ever-useful lamp to illuminate your work. The faux wooden surface is well made, with curved edges to minimize the risk of peeling in the future. The memory foam of course, is so much better than the Styrofoam-stuffed bottom materials/bean bag style type of underneath support.


The common complaint for the light is that, it may shine too bright and cause distraction for the laptop screen. You can of course, bend the light over and twist its light head away from the screen to minimize inconvenience. All in all, it’s quite a lovely tool for laptop users, especially on the go.

It may be a little pricier than most lap desks, but it definitely offers the kind of comfort and convenience that most of its competitors can’t provide.
