Furniture News for your home office
Home office furniture news: Now that we’re inside the second half of the year, it’s time to consider updating and improving your home office. It’s also a good opportunity to take stock of what you have and see if there’s anything missing or pieces in need of replacement. We’ve got all the latest design trends and how they can help you create an effective workspace no matter your needs.
To ensure that space is optimized as much as possible, you should begin by measuring the area where your desk will go while considering whether or not you’ll need any filing cabinets, bookshelves, drawers, storage units or other equipment. Remember that wall space should be considered too—there are plenty of wall-mounted storage solutions to help you get the most out of your home office.
While many think that the corner is the ideal spot for a desk, studies have shown that this makes it more difficult to concentrate on tasks because there are constantly distractions from other areas in your field of vision. Instead, if possible try and place your desk opposite a wall so you aren’t distracted by what’s going on behind you. A good rule of thumb is every 2 feet (0.6 meters) of distance away from the wall equates to 1 foot (0.3 meters) closer to an open area where you can focus on important tasks without interference.
Once you’ve determined where your desk will go, try and stick with neutral colors when it comes to your choice of paint, wall coverings and flooring. Not only does this make it easier to decorate with home office furniture that’s a better fit for your personality, you can also add in pops of color throughout the year with accessories that add a fresh look without much effort.
Now let’s talk about what should go on top of said desk…
We have all heard how important ergonomics are in creating a well-balanced workspace so if possible aim for a height between 28 and 32 inches (70 and 80 cm) or sit at a lower level to ensure you aren’t straining any part of your body for an extended period of time during the day. If you’re unable to accommodate this kind of height, a good replacement would be a standing desk. These can offer you the chance to move throughout the day and in turn help prevent back pain and fatigue in the long run.
If leaning isn’t really your thing, there are plenty of other ways for making sure your home office is properly ergonomic so you can get more out of what you do during the workday. Adding ergonomic accessories such as an anti-fatigue mat will take pressure off of any part of your body that’s regularly in contact with the surface where you’re working. The same goes for chairs—there are many designs available that promote blood circulation and support proper posture, which means you’ll feel better at the end of each day.
With all that said and done, now comes the fun part: decorating! Most of us spend a significant amount of time inside our home office so it’s important to make sure this space is as comfortable and stylish as possible. If your style leans towards modernism, mid-century modern pieces are all the rage right now for home offices. Desk chairs are available with adjustable back rests and height options which can help you create ergonomic seating that won’t cause problems down the road, plus there are also more unique designs that fit into small spaces yet still provide plenty of support throughout daily tasks.
Also consider creating a gallery wall to help liven up an otherwise boring room—there are plenty of ways you can play around with different frames, spacing, angles etc. to create more visual appeal. Some people like to include posters, family photos or art that’s fundamentally important to them while others enjoy making this space into an ode to their favorite hobby with prints and paintings of all kinds.
When it comes to the design of your desk area, you can choose from plenty of different shapes and materials depending on what kind of style you want. Perhaps you want a minimalistic look that features clean lines and modern flair—in this case wooden desks are usually a great fit because they reinforce the fact that less is even more sometimes. On the other hand if you’re looking for something more classic with some vintage accents, try desks made from natural stone , metal or chalkboard .
Of course there are also those who prefer the convenience of a foldaway desk. These are perfect for putting away if you need additional floor space while still providing the work area you need to get the job done during the day (plus they’re good for entertaining guests in an intimate setting).
Once you have all your home office furniture arranged just right, be sure to sit back and enjoy because this is probably one of the most satisfying feelings when it comes to interior design—when everything just feels like it belongs!
About us – CancelKavanaugh
Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was been devastating for women, survivors, communities of color, and so many more across America. It ushered in a reckoning that echoes far beyond him. The fight against all those who want to keep women small, silent, and controlled, has barely begun.
The small but fierce Women’s March team was on the ground in Washington D.C. for the five weeks from when the Kavanaugh hearings began until the final Senate vote. We met with Senators, disrupted hearings, and organized multiple record-setting mass mobilizations. We invested in the leadership of women and femmes by holding direct action and self defense trainings and by sponsoring state leaders to come to D.C. to lobby their Senators in person.
The Women’s March #CancelKavanaugh campaign mobilized over 10,000 people to take action in D.C. On October 6th, 2018, we flooded the steps of the U.S. Capitol, dissented during the Senate vote, and marched up the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court to reclaim it for ourselves.
Our movement is only getting stronger. We have to succeed; we are fighting for our lives. Over the last month, we’ve had tens of thousands of women, survivors, and allies with us in the streets, and millions have been with us over the last two years.
Women —and especially women of color — are voting, we are running for office, and we are organizing in numbers large enough to overturn every last remnant of the Trump Agenda. We can’t do that without your support.
We are disappointed that the Senate confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. However, we are not defeated. We recognize this moment for what it is: a demoralizing lapse in the great American democratic experiment, wherein an accused sexual predator can get away with his reported crimes because he is powerful and well-connected. What’s more, Kavanaugh sitting on our nation’s highest court will have consequential influence over our lives as girls/women/femmes for decades to come. But this is why we resist — because even though progress may sometimes feel impossible, #WeBelieveSurvivors! And now there is nothing stopping us from getting back into the fight for reproductive justice by electing feminist candidates in the midterm elections in November.
Even though we are profoundly disappointed with the lack of strength from Senate Democrats, particularly Senator Feinstein who was been a leading Democrat on this issue for decades, we will not stop pressuring our elected officials to fight Kavanaugh’s appointment and get them to commit to impeaching him if they take control of Congress after the midterms. We cannot ignore his past decisions nor should we make excuses for him. And it is unacceptable that future generations of women have to live with the scars of an appointee who has clear biases against policies that protect their lives and freedoms.
We know that women will not be silenced. Today, tomorrow, and every day forward: we rise!
