Whether you’re working from home or at the office, setting up a stylish and inviting workspace is an important step. The best offices combine fashion with function, creating an area that’s as enjoyable as it is useful. Simply follow the steps below so that you can be on your way to designing a workspace that’s fresh and livable.
Hidden Storage Is Key
Nothing says stress like overflowing desks, file cabinets jammed full, and shelves crammed to maximum capacity. Give your materials plenty of room for today and the future by installing some handy storage solutions that blend in with their surroundings. For instance, the Vertical Cherry Filing Cabinet features sleek, minimalist lines and a spacious interior for stylish storage that enhances your work environment. To take it one step further, find fabric that you can drape over the sides of this cabinet, add a vase on top, and voila! You have an instant table. Click here for more information
Extra Shelves Make All the Difference
Bookcases can be for work or for pleasure, like the Ergocraft Laguna Bookcase. A steel reinforcement rod increases its weight capacity while the adjustable shelves can hold practical items like books, notepads, and binders as well as fun decorative items, including picture frames and small plants. If you are creating a seating arrangement, then storage ottomans are a must-have for some extra space. And of course, wall shelves are a necessity for any tight area. You can arrange a few office supplies in with stylish pieces like candles or small statues. When you organize your papers and office supplies, you’ll create a lot more space (or the illusion of space) that’s so important in making a peaceful work atmosphere you can enjoy.
Surround Yourself with Comfy Seating
For many people, the office is where they spend the majority of the day—so why shouldn’t it be as comfortable as possible? Start off with a cushy desk chair that’s just your style, like the Ergo Mesh Back Task Chair. The casters, full swivel, tilt, and tension control let you position this chair just how you like it while the Ergo mesh back contours to your back for breathable comfort that won’t overheat you in the middle of the day.

Next, consider whether or not you need a seating arrangement in your office. Do clients and coworkers often meet in your workspace? If so, you definitely need to think about setting up some extra chairs, end tables, or perhaps a loveseat. For smooth, clean lines and classic style, check out the Boss Caressoft Reception Box Arm Chair. Rich mahogany wood finished legs complement the soft vinyl upholstery that’s supported by molded polyurethane. A good match for this chair is the Clove Love Seat with its pliable faux leather cover, classic tapered legs, and track arms. You’ll love sinking into the thick padding of this popular choice.
Pillows and Rugs Add Plush Comfort
Rugs and throw pillows will complete your new office arrangement, bringing an extra touch of comfort and luxury. You’ll want to kick off your shoes everyday with the Hand-woven Shag Solo Rug underfoot. Casual, yet modern, this dense area rug provides a luxurious feel and comes in solid colors that are easy to match with furniture and other accessories. If you’re looking to add an interesting print to the room, choose the Hand-tufted Metro Flower Wool Rug. The thick pile still provides the comfort you’re looking for while the large, elegant design will bring a modern element to your office. For a touch of contemporary elegance, look to the Seville Knife-Edge Pillows. These decorative pillows look great on chairs or love seats and will bring additional comfort to your work area.
Search for Zen-Like Accessories
To finish off your peaceful office retreat, select accessories that will not only provide a soothing effect but also convey your style and personality. The Mahogany Candle Globe is a good pick, with its fresh floral scent and interior that’s painted with wax for a unique pattern. An Array of brown and mahogany tones makes this candle easy to match with many decorating themes while 50 hours of burn time means that you’ll get a lot of use out of it. Bring empty wall space to life with the Tree of Life Wall Hanging. Handmade in Haiti of recycled oil drums, each wall hanging displays exquisite detail and is personally signed by the artist. From bookends to photo frames, canvas art and more, there is a whole world of accessories for you to explore for your office oasis.
