Our surroundings can inspire us more than we realize. If you’ve ever worked in a cubicle type setting for work, than you know making it your own personal space by adding decorations, pictures and inspirational quotes on the walls can help it feel more like home. Fortunately, when you are creating your own home office, you get to decide the type of look and feel for your space. Once the design is planned, the next step is choosing the perfect home office furniture to give you the updated space you are looking for. We teamed up with modern furniture store, Inmod.com, who have just released a new collection of modern and contemporary home office furniture that we absolutely adore!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
For a light and airy feel, the Serafina Laptop Desk is a nice choice. It comes in 3 different wood finishes, each one with a set of 2 drawers. The most intriguing feature of this home office desk is its genuine textured rattan front with shiny brass finished peg handles.
A cozy and warm mango wood desk will always bring out a sensation of comfort for your home office. The Monterey Writing Desk is a good option. It is entirely made from sustainably sourced mango wood in India with a unique grain pattern and 2 upper tiered drawers. It comes in 2 different wood finishes. We love its earthy and sophisticated vibes.
Two-tone color desks give us more flexibility when it comes to choosing our home office design. The Mackenzie Desk is a solid representation of a perfect two-tone contemporary desk. Although it is also made entirely of wood, it features walnut or natural wood finished legs with a painted white or black top. Its open drawer top tiered design also adds to its aesthetic and functions as storage spaces for organizational purposes. Its made as strong as the full wooden desks, but with a charming and contemporary two-tone color.
Of course, we can’t solely focus on the home office desk design. As you can see above, each of these desks is paired with a unique desk chair. Some of which are matching, whereas others are a completely different color and style altogether. Let’s take a look at some of the modern home office desk chairs you can pair with your new desk.
One of our new favorite fabrics for furniture is velvet. Its a versatile upholstery that is pretty to look at, soft to touch and easy to maintain. It makes a remarkable fabric for a desk chair as well as for myriad of other furnishings. The Henley Velvet Office Chair is a fun choice if you are eager to give velvet a try. Featuring a comfortable armless design with light padding and accent stitching, it will bring a burst of color into your home office space. Of course, it serves as a nifty desk chair as well. With an adjustable base and smooth gliding wheels it won’t falter as a perfect pairing to your new desk. Plus, it comes in 5 different colors. All of which, we might add, are ultra modern and vibrant! (If you aren’t ready to ride the velvet train, there is also the Henley Office Chair – same design but upholstered in a supple leatherette upholstery.)
Now when molded polypropylene came out on the furniture scene, no one knew the effect it would have on modern furniture design like it has over the last 60+ years. We’ve seen it used in lounge chairs, dining chairs and chaises. Its been blended into a variety of artworks and sculptural designs as well. The Avalon Office Chair has taken it to the next level bringing molded plastic into the world of home office furniture. Its both amorphic shape and ergonomic seat is futuristic looking and comfortable. And yes! In case you are wondering, it also has wheels and a strong metal base design. It comes in 3 different finishes. Each finish is a neutral color making it easier to pair with other home office furniture.
Last but not least on our idea list for perfect home office furniture, we have the Julian Boucle Office Chair. You’re never going to believe this but boucle is a type of textured yarn with deep origins in both classic modern furniture design and in high fashion. It took a long hiatus in the fabric world for furniture until recently. We are happy to see it back on the scene, especially as a striking home office desk chair. It features a trendy arched backrest with a cut-out shape and fluffy padding. Its gold finished and smooth gliding mobile base is another glamorous feature. It comes in 2 different colors.
We’ve moved away from the bulky, boring and plain black office chairs paired with flat, straight and 4-legged desk designs to more modern pastures. Exploring the different types of home office furniture styles, fabrics, materials and finishes is only half the fun! You will find a whole new world of design helping you turn your space into the writers retreat you’ve always dreamed of.
