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?
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.
