More than 37 million U.S. households have a home office. If you’re not among them today, you might soon be as more and more companies allow employees to telecommute. Whether it’s used as a business office, a place to pay the bills and surf the ‘Net or as a homework station for the kids, put the emphasis on home instead of office by choosing furniture that effortlessly mixes with your décor.
And Art Van Furniture has a home office for every home style.
If you love Contemporary, the Woodward Avenue Collection Desk is a great choice. Crafted of mahogany wood solids and veneers and finished in dark coffee, the three-drawered 60” desk features nickel hardware for a touch of shine. A lower shelf is a great place to store file boxes. Paired with a leather side chair, also from the Woodward Avenue Collection, you won’t want to shut the door on your office.
The clean lines of the Park Glen 60” Desk make it a good choice for the Casual home. In cherry or oak, the look is open, architectural and uncluttered. With a simple, sawhorse design, the shelves can hold books, files or a printer. Pair it with the upholstered Grandbay Chair in faux leather for a classic, urban feel.
The upscale look of the pecan Barolo Home Office Collection makes it an elegant choice for a Traditional home. The 60” Executive Writing Desk features ample storage with file drawers that hold legal or letter-sized documents and a pencil drawer that easily converts for a keyboard. Pair it with the Barolo wood-trimmed leather desk chair, with five-leg swivel base and casters for mobility. The gas lift offers a seat level for every member of the house.
Finally, the Rustic Desk Set is a unique home office option that includes two pieces: a desk and a desk console. Use the pieces stacked to create a hutch-like look. Or use the pieces in an L formation, for a workspace with lots of surface area. In Sedona oak or Santa Fe chocolate finishes, both feature slate inserts and casters on the desk for quick mobility. Pair either with the two-tone wood Westmore Side Chair or the cinnamon-finished pine Desk Arm Chair with neutral upholstered seat and casters.
Whichever style is yours, remember that your surroundings can affect your productivity. Be sure to put as much thought into your workspace as you do your work itself.
