Give your Home Office a Refresh

Working from home has grown in popularity – and both home-based and office-based workers have benefitted from creating a designated home base for home working, hybrid working or out-of-office work.

Regardless, you want your home office furniture to help motivate you during the ‘9 to 5’ – and not leave you relieved to log off once 5 pm comes around.

The beautifully designed desks, storage solutions, furniture and accessories we offer, will work well together to create a productive space that inspires you whatever the task.

With furniture and accessories this gorgeous, you’ll find it easy to refresh your remote office setting.

1. It all Starts with a Desk

Woood Stage Desk

Step one of any home office makeover is choosing the desk where you’ll work.

This sleek desk is brought to you in a stunning khaki green shade – accented by tactile brown leather handles.

With a drawer, cabinet and six open cubby holes to store your office supplies – it has reassuringly traditional ‘pigeon hole’ storage alongside a place to rest your laptop.

Constructed from sustainable FSC brushed pine that’s proud of its knots and natural markings, it’ll refresh any home office.

2. Smart in More than Looks

Koble Bea Smart Desk with Wireless Charging

Koble has made a name for itself by offering modern convenience – and this desk is no exception!

This desk is smart in terms of its inbuilt ‘tech’- not just its industrial wood veneer and stylishly sloped metal legs. Its surface charges your phone wirelessly whilst you work (compatible with all wireless charging smartphones) – yes really!

So will you choose this Bea desk in mellow ‘Oak’ or ‘Lime Wash’?

3. Choose ‘Plant Therapy’

Vox Worknest Desk with Slatted Screen

Vox are continually innovating within its furniture collections and this Birch ‘work nest’ desk offers remote workers the chance to engage with nature.

Spruce up your domestic office space by adding accessories to the slatted back panel – such as the white flower pots and hanging baskets pictured here (not included).

By creating a garden oasis indoors – you’ll benefit from improved air quality. Plus, your office will have ‘green appeal’ and spark creativity in whatever your work involves.

4. Choose an Iconic Office Chair

Dutchbone Blackwood Chair

Ditch the standard office chair on wheels in favour of a modern-day classic in the making.

Indulgent ‘Walnut’ or executive ‘Black’ – you’re bound to make a design statement with this 1950s style PU-leather upholstered chair.

Its iconic profile and black powder-coated steel frame will give your home office an uber-stylish refresh – so why not check out the coordinating Dutchbone items if ‘matchy-matchy’ is your ‘thing’.

5. Opt for Neutral Seating

Zuiver Dusk Chair

Go for Zuiver’s swivel chair if your existing chair is less than ‘wow’.

They’re sure to revitalise your home working space for years to come with their stylish (and dependable) iron legs. With a trio of neutral shade covers available – adding these chairs shouldn’t require an entirely new office theme or decorating efforts.

The Dusk Chair also offers a ‘comfort refresh’ with its inviting foam backrest and seat – just don’t miss dinner!

6. Shine a (Smart) Light on Your Stylish New Office

Koble Arc Smart Lamp with Wireless Charging

Maybe you prefer one of the two non-Koble desks shown above – but your heart skipped a beat at the thought of fuss-free wireless charging.

Adding this contemporary Arc smart lamp achieves the same wireless charging capability – this time located on its sleek base. Plus, the touch-sensitive buttons activate the LED light – and 3 colour temperatures – without stretching for the switch.

Whether you pick the ‘White’ or ‘Black’ option – this ‘sculptural’ desk lamp will modernise – and illuminate – your entire work area.

7. Metallic Accents that Mean Business

Pacific Lifestyle Biba Table Lamp

Go for decor ‘gold’ when curating your refreshed home office by adding the Biba table lamp from the UK company Pacific Lifestyle.

The brushed gold finish makes a suitably stylish addition to the space – but this beautiful lamp has a wealth of other loveable design features too. From the natural marble base that ‘whispers’ refined elegance, to the crisp white metal shade that can be angled to shine a light on those pesky business documents, we’re confident you’ll marvel at this statement lighting.

Collaborate with the floor lamp ‘colleague’ (sold separately) for a pulled-together lighting scheme set to impress.

8. Banish ‘the Bland’ with Woood

Woood Bookazine Bookcase

Being Cuckooland, we’d always encourage you to banish ‘the bland’ from your home office!

After all, why should you settle for a boring stationery cupboard or storage shelves when Woood have designed this modern Bookazine unit?

This bookcase has three fitted shelves (with doors) to conceal your office essentials from sight. Yet, you can proudly display your family photos and awards on the top (open) shelf. Its rich rustic walnut veneer is so true to life and you’ll love how this bookcase will complement many decor themes – including the much-loved industrial trend.

Note the ‘swoon-worthy’ black leather handles and metal leg accents.

9. ‘Curate’ Your Prized Possessions

Helia Round Wall Shelf

Who says an office needs to be devoid of its owner’s personality?

Part of the joy of working from home is that you can customise the decor you’re surrounded by. La Forma’s matte steel and Fir wood round wall shelf is an impressive 80cm in diameter – affording you plenty of room to reflect your life (outside of work) on its shelves.

Place some appealing books there – ideal for times when you can relax in your new office chair between meetings.

10. Don’t Forget to Add Soft Furnishings

Zuiver Obi Woven Rug in Blue

Adding this stylish new rug to your home office floor is a tactile way to refresh your room.

Available in two sizes – 170cm x 240cm and 200cm x 300cm – it’ll make the right impact with its dreamy ombre blue shades. With a practical anti-slip backing, it has a soft pile that you’ll want to sink your feet into.

Not feeling the inky blue tones? We also stock a ‘Grey’ option – the king of neutrals – that’ll also upgrade your home office with panache.
