We spotted a super unique and creative setup by @jpgsbyx and we have researched every single item from this amazing setup. Hope you guys find something useful for your creative desk setup!
Before we start, let us introduce X, this incredible desk setup owner.
I go by X on Instagram. Love taking photos and capturing that moody vibe. I work in tech as well as take pictures. My setup is designed to maximize my workspace and keep me focused. I’ve tried to only add the highest quality items and keep my greyscale / wood vibe.

My favorite parts of my setup would probably be the way the screens are setup. For what I do I need a ton of screen real estate.
The LG 32UN880-B features 32” UltraFine UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS Display with USB Type-C with 60W PD. It has incredible color accuracy and an approachable price tag, making it an easy recommendation for creatives and gamers alike, but with just 350 nits of brightness, the HDR10 compatibility is a bit of a waste. But it comes in at just $699, which makes it one of the most approachable 4K monitors for creative professionals working from home.
The LG 38WN95C-W is a great overall monitor. It's very good for office use or watching content, because it gets bright enough to combat glare, has wide viewing angles, and displays a wide color gamut. It's impressive for gaming due to its extremely quick response time, incredibly low input lag, and FreeSync support. HDR content looks good as it gets bright enough to bring out highlights, but it has a low contrast ratio and the local dimming feature is terrible.
Built-in ambient light sensor in the Desktop Dial enables you with simply one touch for the best brightness level; Let the auto-dimming function does the job! You can also manually adjust the brightness and color temperature any moment. Easy to use with precision. ScreenBar Plus e-Reading Lamp can be powered by USB port with power supply 5V/1A, ScreenBar Plus resumes your last used brightness and color temperature settings to welcome you back! Dial in the perfect color temperature for focus and comfort; Warm light for relaxing, cool light for work efficiency
Flagship of the line, the monitoring loudspeaker Alpha 80 is particularly ideal for producing music which is rich in bass or which requires high power reserves. This model is composed of a 8” (21cm) woofer/ midrange speaker with a Polyglass cone loaded in a large laminar port and of a 1" (25mm) aluminum inverted dome tweeter. It features a 40W amplifier for the tweeter and a 100W amplifier for the woofer, and has a frequency response of 35Hz to 22kHz (+/- 3dB).
This trendy device comes with pixelated clock, page-a-day calendar and thousands of clockfaces. Festive clockfaces come automatically to life on holidays. Get smart home notifications from Sonos, Netatmo Weather Station, Bosch, Siemens, Neff, Gaggenau and Thermador home appliances. Toggle Philips Hue, Lifx and WeMo with a click. Voice-control via Amazon Echo or Google Assistant.
My setup was heavily inspired by the desk setup community which is in the millions. Who doesn’t like a clean nice workspace! I hope I can inspire some new comers as others did for me.
Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad features an extended layout, with document navigation controls for quick scrolling and full-size arrow keys for gaming. A scissor mechanism beneath each key allows for increased stability, while optimized key travel and a low profile provide a comfortable and precise typing experience.
The firm wrist support keeps your hands in a nice, relaxed position so you can type comfortably for hours. This palm rest is crafted with high-quality materials; soft yet resilient Memory foam is comfortable and durable — Plus, it's stain-resistant and easy to clean. It is smooth and pleasant to touch and doesn't slip or slide on surfaces. It stays put no matter how and where you type.
The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a very good mouse for FPS gaming. It has a very low click latency, an extra-wide CPI range, and a remarkably consistent sensor. However, it's on the heavier side and might not be light enough for many FPS gamers. On the upside, it has a lot of programmable buttons, and you can set a G-shift button to give you an additional layer of programmable inputs.
This trackpad or slim mouse wrist rest provides functional and sophisticated low-profile elegance. Non-skid rubber backing keeps the rest from slipping whether you're working or gaming. Ultra-soft feel with a premium exterior that is supported by gel-cushioned padding to provide unmatched quality and comfort.
My plan would be to continue adding things that compliment the setup. Eventually moving it and adding more.
Four force sensors underneath the trackpad surface allow you to click anywhere, and detect subtle differences in the amount of pressure you apply, bringing increased functionality to your fingertips and enabling a deeper connection to your content. It also features an edge-to-edge glass surface area that is nearly 30 percent larger than the previous trackpad. This design, along with a lower profile, makes scrolling and swiping through your favorite content more productive and comfortable than ever.
The HyperX QuadCast S is a sleek, clear-sounding USB gaming microphone with a mesmerizing light show. And 4 selectable polar patterns allow you to choose between four polar patterns (stereo, omnidirectional, cardioid, bidirectional) to optimize your broadcast setup and keep the focus on the sounds you want to be heard. The versatile adapter fits 3'8-inch and 5'8-inch threaded setups, compatible with most mic stands or boom arms. The internal pop filter helps block plosive sounds from hitting the mic, and you can monitor the mic via the headphone jack.
Aeron office chair revolutionized office seating with its defining design qualities: the pioneering Pellicle suspension material and its patented PostureFit SL back support, which affords the ideal sit — chest open, shoulders back, pelvis tilted slightly forward. Combining a deep knowledge of human-centered design with cutting-edge technology, the classic Aeron chair is engineered with state-of-the-art adjustability, from the arms, seat height, depth, and recline, to help you maintain the optimal seating posture so you can focus on the task at hand. And it comes available in three chair sizes, offering the most comfort to the largest range of users.
I think another big thing that adds to the space is all of the Philips hue lights. They allow me to control the vibe.
Set the mood with 16 million colors. Control your Philips Hue Smart Lights all with just the touch of a button on your mobile device or your favorite voice assistant. Add up to 10 Hue Bluetooth/Zigbee smart bulbs with the (free) Hue Bluetooth app. Style up your home decor with color accents or set up fun light colors for your next party. Support your day with pre-set light recipes, to get you energized in the morning and wind you down after a long day.
The Nanoleaf Canvas is like a lit-up artwork on your wall. It not only gives a room personality, it also makes the space interactive and fun. It might be pricey and extravagant, but it could perhaps be the most beautiful thing you have in your home.
This premium leather desk pad is more than just a slab of leather, the Grovemade Leather Desk Pad is laminated in house to a natural cork backing. It’s then die cut for a clean, modern look. The excellent hand-feel and function of leather made even more functional to give you a desk mat that really elevates.
Large Desk Pad
This desk pad brings visual structure and organization to your workspace, with premium 3mm thick virgin Merino Wool Felt. The natural material provides warmth and softness. It accents any desktop, from natural wood grain to white or laminate.
Enliven any surface with our hardwood planter. Each is carved from solid walnut or maple with a removable, custom stainless steel liner cup. To accentuate the warmth of the wood, the planter is hand-sanded and finished with a vegetable-based oil for a rich, lustrous look. Perfect for all types of miniature flora.
Lastly, we really appreciate @jpgsbyx for letting us introduce his amazing setup with a great interview. We hope the best for him!
