8 Essentials for the Perfect Home Office

8 Essentials for the Perfect Home Office

, by James Ward, 4 min reading time



Invest in a good home office desk

The most important element of a home office and the workhorse of the room, aside from yourself - the home office desk. With remote working here to stay, home offices have become more essential than ever. Whether you're relocating from your bed-office or renovating the spare room into a study, pick out a desk that you’d enjoy working from. 

The Blake Desk (left) is a rustic, industrial piece with two drawers for needed storage. If you don’t have a lot of space to work with, opt for the charming Cranford Writing Bureau.






And a comfortable home office chair to go with it 

Where there’s a desk, there’s a home office chair - unless you prefer a standing desk, but even so, you might want to rest on a perch now and then.

The Mustang Office Chair (right) with rustic style brown leather, retro style stitching, 360° swivel motion and adjustable height, this stylish chair is perfect for staying comfortable throughout the working day. 

The Miller Office Chair (left) provides unrivalled comfort with its elegant, straight backrest and padded seat - ideal for long hours in the office. Also, the neutral tones of the chair means that it will perfectly match any type of desk.





A desk light to focus your tasks 

If we had to pick just three must-haves for a home office, it’d be a desk, a chair, and the right task lighting

Contemporary in style, the Black & Copper Task Table Lamp (right) not only looks great, but is practical too with a moveable head to direct light. Finished in copper and black metal shade with a marble base, this lamp brings an edgy, industrial look finished with finesse. 

Want to brighten up your home office? The Harvey Angled Copper Desk Lamp (left) is made of metal-of-the-moment copper. It is angled and enables you to choose exactly where and when you want the light to fall. 







Add an indoor plant or two 

With many benefits such as removing toxins in the room, boosting levels of concentration, decreasing stress, and improving the overall look of a room, plants are a great addition to your home office. Want to have fresh looking plants all year round without any effort whatsoever? Shop our range of artificial plants.





Decorate those blank walls 

Don’t stop at paint when decorating your new home office, whether it’s one statement piece or a collective gallery, hanging wall art in your home office will give you a new point of focus when you’re taking the much-needed breaks from your screen. 






place for everything  

Calling all, sideboards, shelving, storage cabinets and desks with drawers. You will need places to keep all your things organised,  as you know what they say - tidy space, tidy mind.

Create an on-trend retro, rustic-industrial look with our new Rustic Oak collection (coming very soon!) -featuring rich solid oak, metal furnishings, and parquet effect oak veneers with unique tones and markings. 





An office armchair 

For those with a separate study room, an armchair is perfect for when you’ve been stuck in the same spot at your desk all day. Enjoy your cup of coffee and finish your document reading on a comfortable home office armchair.

Ultra modern and sophisticated, the Jenson Armchair in Brown Leather is the perfect addition to your contemporary office space. The comfortable fibre seat cushions with soft foam allow you to be productive whilst enjoying your time away from the desk. 






The home comforts 

One of the best perks about working from home are the home comforts. Unfortunately,  you can’t stroll around your workplace in your slippers and your cosy blanket. Decorate your home office with accessories and all the things you love. Personalise it to your style to make sitting at your desk more enjoyable.
