You carved out a dedicated space to set up your home office (maybe following my tips on how to create your ideal home office) and now you are ready to furnish it. You want a functional yet beautiful space that actually integrates well into the rest of your house but you don’t know what are the best pieces to buy.
This is where I jump in. I prepared 4 home office looks to help you source the right furnishings and accessories for your work-from-home office.
Which one is your favorite?
Shelf (Fogia) // Compas Direction Desk (Vitra) // 218 Bentwood chair (Thonet) // Mantis DS1 floor lamp (DCWéditions Paris) // Atollo lamp (Oluce) // Wall paint GN.00.88 white (Sikkens) // Accessories on the shelf: Toppu tray (OYOY), Poster (Desenio), vase (H&MHome), fragrance diffuser (H&Mhome).
Noma Desk (TipToe) // Lou Stool (TipToe) // Chair Hattefjäll (IKEA) // Teapot and tea mug from the collection Theo (Stelton) // Ambit Pendant Lamp (muuto) // Table lamp Setago (&Tradition) // Wall paint ‘Tissue Paper’ (Dulux) // Posters (The Poster Club)
This home office look is very similar to mine except for the chair and the posters. This is a furniture combination I suggest if you carved out an office corner in the living room and need something sleek that can easily match the existing furniture. The desk is a particularly clever piece: if one day you will no longer need an office corner you can easily disassemble the desk and move it to a new place or store it in small spaces.
FEM desk (made by Choice) // Stool Alvar Aalto 60 (Artek) // Table lamp Tolomeo micro (Artemide) // Mini wall shelves (Ferm Living) // Otto Ceramic vase black (Mani ceramics) // Horizon document organizer (MADE.com) // Moss Wire magazine rack (MADE.com) // Wall paint RN.01.85 white (Sikkens)
Workstation ergonomics is really important yet it’s often overlooked when we have to deal with compact spaces. The FEM desk I suggested in the layout above it’s a clever design conceived for both sitting and standing positions. The adjustable panel is a game changer and allows for the desk to be transformed into a standing desk or shelving unit. I love multifunctional pieces, don’t you?
Buying vintage pieces is a sustainable and stylish way to give character to your home. I regularly visit online marketplaces such as Franckly, Lauritz, Pamono, and Deesup looking for interesting deals and timeless pieces. I recommend you take a look every now and then: you never know when you might come across the next good deal!
