Branch vs Fully: Comparing Two Consumer Office Furniture Brands

We compare Branch and Fully, two beloved office furniture companies, and how their desks, office chairs, and storage solutions compare to give you all the information needed to build the best home office.



So, you’re in the market for office furniture. You’ve found Fully and their wide range of standing desks. Or you’ve come across Branch's line of ergonomic furniture. We’re here to help you get all the facts. This side-by-side comparison will give you a comprehensive glimpse into the furniture you need for your home office. And hopefully, it’ll help you decide which you want. We’ll try to be as objective as possible. (Disclaimer: We’re Branch.)
 
Before we compare the desks, office chairs, and filing cabinets that each company offers, let’s go through a brief introduction of the two.
 
At Branch, we make well-designed, durable furniture at half the cost of the premium players. With a focus on quality and affordability, our own line of ergonomic chairs, desks, and more is synonymous with exceptional value. Our furniture is built for the office, handsome enough to have in your home, and is sold directly to you rather than through middlemen or marketplaces. We also offer free white-glove services and an enterprise-only collection to take the chaos and costs out of furnishing a corporate office.
 
Fully is an office furniture company that specializes in the Jarvis Standing Desk. The company offers a large variety of materials and styles for the desk, from expo-board to bamboo to hardwood and laminate tops. B-Certified, Fully focuses on bringing office furniture back with an environmental twist. They also serve corporate offices with their enterprise line which consists of breakout tables and lounge furniture.
 
Let's dive in to how some of our products compare to those at Fully.
 

The Desks

 
The office desk is at the center of your workstation, so you should make sure it's a great one. If you’re looking for a long-lasting, dependable desk for hours of concentrated work, the Branch Office Desk is what you want. It’s made with heavy duty materials and comes at a price far lower than others with the same level of commercial durability. Fully doesn’t offer desks outside of standing desks, so we can’t compare here. A beveled top, 650lb capacity, and the double-flip cable port make this the best office desk of its kind.
 
Prefer a more dynamic work environment? Standing desks are made to move and work with you. The height-adjustable desks you'll find from us and Fully can make you more productive with just a touch of a button.
 
If you're looking for all the benefits in a simple package and the strongest durability on the market, you've come to the right spot. Our furniture is made for commercial use but beautiful enough to have in your home, so it’s bound to last you plenty of years (even decades). We prioritize a few unique offerings in each category, but make them the best offerings you can find anywhere. That means you get a larger desk with superior features automatically. A melamine top stays imperfection-free no matter the spill, drop, or crash. Our three-stage columns protect the desk long-term and dual EasyGlide motors promise smooth, fast, and quiet movement. Beveled edges, woodgrain finishes, and four memory presets come standard. Add-ons like a wire organizer and a super bendy monitor arm organize your office to the max. Our standing desk is one made to last.
 
Fully's Jarvis desks are a great option if you want to completely customize your desk. Their pieces start with a base price that includes the most basic Jarvis model. You’ll get a slightly smaller top, less height adjustment, and a basic up/down toggle that has no memory presets. If you want more functional features like memory presets (so you don’t have to memorize your ergonomic measurements) or extended height choices (so you can go super low or high), you’ll need to pay more. You can also add-on accessories like wire trays and powered grommets. And lastly, if you’re in the market for a unique desktop like expo board or bamboo, Fully offers those at higher base prices as well.

The Chairs

Your office chair will determine whether you’re comfortable during eight-hour workdays or struggling with back pain. Choosing a chair that can be adjusted to your ergonomic needs is critical. We’ve compared our most adjustable chair with Fully’s.
 
The first thing you’ll notice is that our staple Ergonomic Chair is half the price of the Knoll ReGeneration Chair that Fully sells as a third-party seller. And it has many more adjustments. Proper placement of armrests, lumbar support, tilt, seat depth, and height will make the difference for proper alignment. It also comes standard with hybrid casters so you can move and lock, supports 300lbs, and is 95% recyclable.
 
Fully’s ReGeneration chair offers more customization. The chair remains black, but the cushion is interchangeable between three other colors. Self-described as an innovative take on the office chair with recycled materials, Fully’s focus is on the composition of the chair. There’s 3 points of adjustment to create a more comfortable chair, but seat depth and the lumbar back support are not adjustable.

The Sets

 
We make it easy to furnish your home office in less time with less money. Instead of sifting through which chair and desk combination is right for you, we've created custom packages that offer a unique discount on our products while providing you with an easy choice for an upgraded home workstation.
 


The Filing Cabinets

The two filing cabinets up for comparison innovate the old file cabinet with style and more functionality. Beyond storing documents and important files, these cabinets function as additional seating.
 
Fully’s Sidekick File Cabinet is the more traditional choice. It’s slightly larger, heavier, and has typical casters. It supports up to 250lbs but does not come with the cushion seating. That’s an add-on for $79. It’s more customizable with a variety of metal finishes and cushion colors; but it also has some downfalls, like plastic handles and a more traditional office look.
 
Our own Filing Cabinet comes standard with its cushion-top. It’s smaller and holds slightly less weight (50lbs less), but has a more stylish design and more features at a lower price. It also comes fully assembled. Additionally, we carry a smaller filing cabinet that fits under smaller desks and comes at an even friendlier price ($155).

The Warranty

 
We promise quality furniture that lasts. That means every product is backed by a long-lasting warranty (check them out by product here). What's more, with our Clyde Protection Plans, customers can add accident-protection to every purchase. You’ll never have to worry about accidents in your office.
 
Fully does well on warranties too. With multiple long-standing warranties from nine to 13 years, every purchase can be made with confidence.
 

The Service

 
Customer service is at the heart of our business. It’s easy to get in touch via chat or email. Surf the website and the chat box connects immediately to a human representative (it will usually be Keisha, Noah, or John; but it might be Greg, our CEO, who is on customer support duty once every week). You’ll probably get a response within the minute. Whether you're inquiring about a product detail, the status of your order, or an assembly step, we'll happily do our best to get you the answer you're looking for.
 
Fully offers comprehensive warranties yet focuses less on customer service. There is a phone line and the chat box is easy to use, but it connects you to a robot in order to proceed. When connected to a person, it might take a while before you find the answer you're looking for. Representatives are kind and try to answer every question, but often provide the basic information already online.
 

The Bottom Line

 
Fully is the place to peruse if you want every option possible. They’re also a B-Certified company that uses recycled and environmentally friendly materials. Prices start low for their desks but quickly add-up depending on the add-ons and features you want.
 
At Branch, most advanced features come standard in all our products. We sell every product directly to you, avoiding middlemen and markups, to create affordable furniture that outperforms its category. Our limited product variants enable us to keep highly optimized inventory—and thus helps us offer you the best prices on the market for the quality that our products deliver.
 

On new furniture, exclusive sales and more.

Thank You!
