As more of us find ourselves working remotely or running home-based businesses, having a space in our homes devoted to work is more and more relevant. Even if a large and separate space isn’t available, a stylish and functional small work space is totally within reach with the right furniture.
While you might not believe it, comfort is important when it comes to creating a home work space- and you are home, after all! Anchor the room with a comfortable sofa and a cozy rug. Well-balanced and beautifully tailored, our Montclair 2-Seat Roll Arm Sofa provides upright seating for concentration without lacking comfort. Add sophistication to the room with our Alvarez Garden Rug, which provides a soft, almost painterly aesthetic of jewel tones. It’s detailed enough for a conversation piece yet toned down enough to not be distracting while you work.
If the room you have to dedicate to a work space is limited, then functionality in furniture choices is critical. Try our Pilsen Salt Cabinet or our Spotlight White Cabinet, which offer ample space for files and supplies and can also double as the perfect side table. Set up our Pilsen Graphite Bookcase for a tasteful industrial mix of glass and steel with generous surface space. The tower floats five glass shelves for your belongings and is versatile enough in style to either float in the center of a room or up against a wall. If additional room is needed, try out our Floating Cube Shelf to make use of vertical wall space instead of taking up precious square footage.
Perhaps the most important piece of furniture for the work space is the desk- the place you’ll likely spend the most amount of time. Our Clyborn Writing Desk, with its striking mid-century design and functional shelving, will redefine the concept of a small work space entirely. The slender footprint and classic mix of walnut and stainless steel steals the show and will remain in style for many years to come. Give it a chair just as magnificent such as our Ripple Leather Chair. Generously padded and outfitted with nylon casters, this chair is up for any task you throw at it. Stand up our nickel floor lamp. It’s easily adjustable arm directs light to where it’s needed the most and features a flat base to conveniently tuck under a chair or couch.
Finally, throw in some accents to tie the room together. We suggest some decorative throws for comfort and some potted plants for personality. Voila! You know have a clean, functional (and stylish!) work space at home. What are your ideas for making a home work space comfortable? Let us know in the comments below!
