Finding the perfect furniture for your home office has never been easier. Whether you’re outfitting a new space or adding to a current one, here are four key players that’ll help you make the most of the space.

Home Office Desks

  • .

    The desk you choose depends on your style, your space, and your budget. An executive desk will give you a heavy, large-scale piece with a base that provides an abundance of office storage space. That’ll help cut down on clutter for a neat and tidy office space.

  • On the other end of the spectrum is the humble writing desk. Writing desks offer more streamlined designs that are easier to integrate into a home office design when space is limited. They’ll typically provide a large work surface and one or more utility drawers for storing pens, pencils and other office essentials.

The smaller footprint doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style, either. The Int’l Furniture Antique Collection Writing Desk is a perfect example of rustic elegance, with reclaimed pine wood construction, extension drawers, and a distressed finish. Liberty’s Martin Furniture Toulouse Double Pedestal Desk offers a timeless look with traditional styling, including a pedestal base and a two-tone finish.

Office Chairs

  • Comfort is key when it comes to office chairs. This Coaster Everyday Mesh Drafting Chair offers a mesh back for excellent breathability, ensuring proper temperature regulation during long work sessions. Other features to look for include gas-lift height adjustment that’s great for sit/stand desks and its casters for smooth mobility.

So now that you have the essentials, a desk and chair, how about some storage to keep yourself organized? A bookshelf is a great home office furniture piece that enhances your space. Its showcase books, décor, stationary, and fills your space with the elegance and functionality. Utilize a small or tall bookcase to your home office to keep your space organized or take advantage of the space on top for a printer or fax!


Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any home office and its importance should not be overlooked. Besides creating an effective workspace, desk lamps and floor lamps can add depth, inviting style and a warm, cozy glow to any setting.
