Listen up, my hard-working friends: Now that most of us are working from home for at least a while longer, do yourself a favor and upgrade your workspace and treat yourself to a luxury home office. It’s the least you can do for yourself.
Here’s how to create a lavish home office that’ll make working a pleasure.
Set Up an Epic Work Station in Your Home Office
Obviously, a luxurious home office has to start with a lavish desk. It’s your center of operations, after all, and will be where you spend the entirety of your work day. And in this case, going to Target and buying a random table as a desk won’t do you any good because we’re also after aesthetics. I recommend something in a dark or neutral color with either a glass or solid wood tabletop construction.
Below, check out one of my favorites:
West Elm Foundry Bookcase & Desk Set in Dark Walnut
Behold, my friends. The perfect desk. Kiln-dried solid mahogany finished in a stunning dark walnut meets antique bronze finishes for a rich, sleek centerpiece for your home office. Plus, built-in shelving offers you plenty of space to store your books and decor, and drawers and cabinets give you even more storage space to hide away clutter.
A Mighty Throne for a Mighty King
When we work, we sit. Right? Right. That’s why you need to invest in the best chair money can buy in order to keep your back and ass happy all day long.
My choice? See below and be amazed.
Herman Miller Aeron Chair
When I was in college, the school library was stocked with these incredible desk chairs and I would spend the majority of my time in there just so I could sit in these chairs. They’re that miraculous. Once I graduated, I looked them up and found out they were Herman Miller’s Aeron Chair and promptly bought one for myself despite the eye-watering price tag.
I mean, the Aeron Chair from Herman Miller puts all others to shame with its weightless back and butt support, and it makes sitting on it feel like a special treat. In other words, you actually look forward to sitting at your desk to work. But really, don’t let the price throw you off. It’s an investment, but keep in mind that you’re paying for the highest quality.
Feast Your Eyes on 4K Ultra High Resolution Goodness
A luxurious home office requires an equally extravagant monitor, if you ask me. Because what’s more luxurious than working from a 32″ screen?
Philips 31.5″ Curved Monitor
I personally decked my desk out with this massive 32″ curved monitor and I couldn’t be happier. It has a gorgeous minimalist look with a simple square ring stand, curved screen for your viewing pleasure, and high pixel density for crisp, clear picture quality.
Be Your Own Barista with an Office Coffee Corner
Making coffee in the kitchen is cool and all, but having a dedicated coffee corner with a baller espresso machine in your home office is even better. Trust me. It’s like having your own little gourmet coffee shop right at your fingertips.
