1. Flair Furnishings Power Z Gaming Desk
Adding extra screens to a gaming setup helps you get fully emersed and stuck into the action – you can really enjoy the complete experience in the comfort of your own home. But what desk can handle so much equipment?
A Power Z Desk has you covered. The raised shelf can handle the weight of extra screens and speakers and is set at the perfect distance and height to avoid eye strain and neck and back pains – providing you’ve got the gaming chair for the job! The shelves have been cleverly designed to keep consoles and desktop units well ventilated and prevent them from overheating while you’re midway through a campaign. And hidden cable ports and cupboards keep equipment and accessories neat and tidy. Finally with colour-changing lights installed, set them to the colour that best fits the gameplay! If they’re glowing red… you mean business.
2. Parisot SetUp Gaming Desk
Ergonomically designed to improve your experience, the SetUp Gaming Desk is the real deal! The generously sized desk and monitor shelf can hold up to 3 screens. Set at eye level, straining is not a problem.

Those struggling PC fans will love you for it! Retire those mousemats too – the desk has an infrared compatible coating so there’s no need for one. There are storage compartments, cupboards and shelves galore – keeping accessories tidied away and the desk space free… so maybe a new home for that old mousemat to live?
3. Trasman Pod 1 Gaming Bed
The ultimate choice for teens – the Trasman Gaming Beds will score big with your kids!
Styled in a bold black and red, this gaming hub has everything a hardcore gamer needs to get to the top of the leader boards. Shelves for discs, controllers and headsets, a full-width desk and shelf to support monitors, consoles and computer equipment and a spot for their all-important gaming chair. The LED lights are a really cool feature – your kids will be the envy of their co-op teammates. There is even a hanging rail to keep outfits tidied and out of the way – great if you’re short on space. A wireless charger can be added to avoid those low battery notifications interrupting gameplay. When they’ve completed their campaign or the dreaded ‘game over’ screen appears, they can climb up to the single bed to reset, think strategy and get some much-needed rest.
Installation options are available too – so no need to hit pause, our friendly team will come and assemble the bed for them!
