If there were ever a time to invest in your home office space, it's now. Working from home is the new normal for many of us, so it pays to make your work space as comfortable and conducive to motivation as possible. From the correct lighting to mood-enhancing wall art, these simple upgrades are bound to enhance your home work environment.
If you’re looking to jazz up your desk, few brands are better than Beyond Object. Making every day items exciting, the brand specialises in quirky design and incredible detailing. Simple objects such as pencil sharpeners and tape dispensers are rendered as sculptures, adding a point of different to your desk while making basic tasks a pleasure to do.
We’ve waxed lyrical plenty of times about Carl Freidrik’s luggage options, which encompass everything from suitcases to weekend bags, but the brand has recently ventured into desk accessories, offering up office essentials like mouse pads and desk mats. Using its signature vegetable-tanned leather, which has been hand-stitched and burnished, its desk mats are the finishing touch you didn’t know you needed.
A work of art, whether it’s photography, a contemporary painting or a print, can really elevate any room of the house. For a home office it too can make all the difference – use it to add a pop of colour or just to simply gaze into for inspiration during a moment of rest. The Poster Club stocks the works of a wide range of emerging artists, and is the perfect stop for those looking to invest in art for the first time.
Inefficient technology can seriously dampen your working from home experience, so it pays to invest in top quality tech gear that will only serve to enhance your everyday. Enter Native Union, the brand that's aiming to revolutionise the way we use our gadgets. Its classic leather wireless charger is not only high performing, but is guaranteed to make a stylish statement in your home.
For wall lights, few brands do it better than Industville. The London-based brand makes use of various types of metal – from brass to pewter – in its designs, which hark back to the golden age of 20th century industry. Look out for its swan neck cage lights, which are incredibly easy to integrate into virtually any space.
Plants and foliage should never be underestimated when it comes to interior design. They give life to any room and not only look good but improve the air quality too. Designed specifically for small plants, Vitamin’s IV plant pot is an ideal addition to the home office. The unique design ensures your chosen plant is constantly fed water when it’s needed, meaning manual watering is a thing of the past.
