Home Star

Is there anything more satisfying than a home office that allows you to give the best of yourself because everything is in its rightful place?

Retro Influence

Take a cue from modern-industrial style to create coherent look for your office space. Choose a desk that mixes metal and steel—or even tubular, cantilevered bases, a signature feature of early 20th-century furniture first used by designer Gerrit Rietveld to create his Zig Zag chair and employed by the likes of Alvar Aalto and Marcel Breuer, among many others.

Bring in soothing materials to soften the otherwise rigid look of this style. In this case, the filing cabinet is covered in imitation leather. Detailed with contrast stitching, it lends a masculine yet elegant touch to the Danish-style chairs. What’s more, the quilted velvet upholstery of the chairs adds a touch of colour and contrast to the clean-lined decor, while they’re tapered, black-dyed oak legs infuse the space with their discreet sophistication.

Seeking Versatility

The L-shaped desk offers extra surface space that is rather practical when you need to lay out paper documents, get some reading done or change positions over the course of a long work day. Equipped with drawers, it offers a convenient storage space, where you can file folders and keep your work tools close at hand. When shopping for a functional desk like this one, look for an adaptable model that allow to swap the storage location to suit your needs.

Here, the office chair is anything but an after-though. A modern design with contoured armrests and an arched backrest, it offers a look that’s at once industrial and elegant. Its aluminum structure evokes the base of the table, while its upholstery gives a wink to the room’s warmer materials.

Last but not least, an area rug, statement plants and a selection of refined accessories give this professional atmosphere a personal touch.
