The history of our origin


The best stories begin inconspicuously. Also the history of the Standsome. Actually, we only wanted to buy a stand-up desk stand for our employees. But it wasn’t that easy, because we only found cardboard boxes or rather unsightly constructions. So we – together with an aircraft engineer and a mechanical engineer – worked out the design ourselves. What looks simple is not so trivial. After six months, many designs and a mountain of wood shavings, the Standsome finally stood on our table. Hardly in use, it was already permanently occupied. And because our visitors were in love with us immediately, we produced supplies. And then again. And again.


That’s how it goes to this day. What started as a side project is now a small furniture company in Rüsselsheim and Mainz. We are diligent and work quite a lot, but because we (mostly) have fun with it, it’s not bad at all. Our team does almost everything itself: from conception to ordering and distribution. The production is carried out by carpenters and manufacturing companies in Germany, with whom we cooperate – everything else is made by Friedrich & Patriz.

Our Team

Geschäftsführer Leo

Leonard Beck


Our puppet master directs and coordinates everything. Although as managing director and founder he takes care of the long-term development of the company, he often has to take care of the “small stuff”: Accept deliveries, renovate, pack orders. That’s how it is in a start-up.
Apart from Standsome, Leo’s passion is great coffee – which is also evident from the impressive collection of coffee machines and brewers in our office kitchen.

Online Marketing

Our sunshine with a sweet tooth joined the team as one of the first and was quickly responsible for our blog and Pinterest. Since then, her extensive knowledge has greatly increased our readership. When she’s not engaging with WordPress or her Master’s degree, she’s meticulously honing her Anastacia impersonation to perfection.

For you to bring a fairy tale my way“



Online Marketing

Our outdoor enthusiast has been constantly providing new impulses at Standsome for a long time. She helps in online marketing, but also supports direct sales. A balanced lifestyle is very important to Julie. Just as much as she loves sports (yoga and horse riding), she loves to eat.

Sara Standsome Team


Sales Management

Our dance-loving sales manager has been supporting us in sales since the beginning of the year. With her direct manner, she approaches everyone openly and often provides a laugh. Sara spends a lot of time with her dance group, has a good knack for interior design, loves traveling, exercise and good food.

“How we choose to see this world will define our entire lives.”


Online Marketing

Our adventurous Johanna maintains our social media channels with the latest Standsome News and exciting life hacks, and provides support wherever needed. With great pleasure she fulfills our customers’ every (engraving) wish. When she is currently not working with the laser, she is learning new languages or planning her next trip.

It is what it is, but it will become what you make it.


Customer Support & SEO

The mom in the team is our baking crazy Tania, who mainly brings our social media area and SEO up to speed. When she’s not whirling away in the kitchen, she can usually be found with her nose buried in a book. Kitschy romance novels and Italian telenovelas are among her guilty pleasures.

Max Team


Warehouse Logistics

Our series-junkie Max takes care of shipping together with Jonas and Laurin. With great skill, he packages Doubles and Frees in record time and helps out wherever he is needed. After all, no one knows the warehouse as well as he does. Incidentally, this is just as true of the series “How I Met Your Mother,” which he has already binged eight times.

but the right ones.”

Standsome Team: Sophie


Social Media & Customer Support

Our interior-crazy Sophie supports us since the beginning of February. When the phone rings, she’s the first on the line and always has an open ear for all customers. In more quiet moments she dedicates herself to new projects, like the development of an exciting site for students. When she’s not at her standsome in the home office, she’s taking care of her plants or browsing online flea markets for new (old) treasures.

“No one is you and that is your power”

Standsome Team: Marij


Customer Support

Our new dog mommy Marij brings a breath of fresh air into the customer support team with her enthusiasm. From time to time Marij also writes instructions for our new additions or helps out in the warehouse. When she’s not answering you with sweet emails, Marij enjoys being outdoors, browsing through thrift stores or sitting at her sewing machine.

It is what it is, but it will become what you make it.

Standsome Team: Kevin


Corporate Communication

Our linguistically enthusiastic wordsmith loves useless knowledge and likes to get to the bottom of things. To spread the good news about Standsome, he contacts editorial offices by the dozen and plows the media landscape unflinchingly. His Guilty Pleasures include Coldmirror parodies, karaoke and the Eurovision Song Contest.

Standsome Team: Elena


Visual Design

Our plantmom Elena brings a breath of fresh air to the team with her creative mind. She supports wherever real design skills are needed. When she’s not working on the website or creating new print layouts, she’s lovingly tending to her apartment jungle while listening to podcasts for hours on end.
