The key to keeping a home office tidy: drawers, drawers, and more drawers. Keep the space from looking too corporate with file cabinets that add style and color to the space. These cabinets come on four casters with two front breaks for easy mobility wherever you're working.
Office chairs don't have to have a corporate look. If your home office is in an open space in your home (the living room, the stair landing—a space without a door), keep with your aesthetic by choosing furniture accordingly.
Love working from the dining table, but don't want to work at the dining table? Choose a desk with a large surface and a strong design detail. Bonus: Clear the desk and drag it into the dining room when you need extra surface for entertaining.
