Are you working from home? Are your kids doing home schooling? Are you finding yourselves squeezed together, using any available flat surface as a desk?

 

While it may have been a fun change of pace initially, odds are that, by now, it’s becoming a struggle to stay productive and professional. Whether you’re an adult or a child, everyone deserves a space where they can focus and do their best work.

 

While we understand that everyone’s home setup is different, there are some key pieces that will help you work more effectively, fit with your space, and look great too.

 

Here are the top pieces of home office furniture to add to your home:

 

1. A Good Desk

(Durham Furniture Distillery Desk)

 

Many people are currently working on kitchen islands, coffee tables, or even their laps. In the short-term, those may be suitable options, but unless you like to see your chiropractor every week or you enjoy getting food on your keyboard, it’s not a good long-term solution.

 

Sturdy, suitably-sized, and offering an appropriate working space, it seems obvious that every home office should have a good desk to work at. 

 

Desks come in a wide range of sizes and materials, so it’s really a matter of preference and space.

 

A Classic Desk

 

Durham Furniture’s Distillery Collection Desk (pictured above) comes in three colour options, Trenton Grey, Whiskey, and Aged Wheat. 

 

A traditional style, this solid maple desk offers clean, simple lines, provides ample working space, and has two drawers for storage. 

 

Durham is known for its quality, and the Distillery Desk is made from sustainably harvested maple with no veneers or particle board. It’s a desk that you can pass down to your children.

 
A Modern Desk

 

(Hekman Furniture Sierra Writing Desk)

 

If you prefer a more modern look and feel, then you may prefer Hekman Furnitures’ Sierra Writing Desk

 

The Sierra Heights Home Office Collection by Hekman is a beautiful, transitional style of desk that combines the rugged charm of hand-forged iron with the simplicity of a soft, dry-weathered finish. 

 

Built from a combination of Mindi veneer and solid materials, the Sierra finish features black glaze highlights that accentuate the wood grain and black iron hardware. The desk offers two drawers on the front.

 

A Children’s Desk

 

(Legacy Furniture’s Bunkhouse Activity Table Desk)

 

Let’s not forget about the kids in our lives — from elementary school to university, students need an appropriate workspace too.

 

Ensuring that your child has their own work area will promote engagement in their studies and will help to make them feel that their work is just as important as their parents’ work.

 

The Legacy Bunkhouse desk is crafted with hardwoods and Acacia veneers in an aged barnwood finish with galvanized pulls and corrugated metal accents.

 

A stylish and solid piece of furniture, this desk looks great in any space.
 

A Flexible Desk

 

(Amisco Rupert Freestanding Desk)

 

Perhaps one of the most clever desks styles on the market, the Amisco Rupert Freestanding Desk offers a contemporary and urban look with the flexibility and versatility to fit in virtually any space. 

 

The Rupert is configurable, allowing you to adjust both the table and shelf height to turn it into the perfect home office unit. Its surfaces are made of distressed solid wood and offer a stylish look for your space — and the integration of a bookshelf is simply brilliant.

 

2. A Quality Bookcase or Shelving Unit

(Hekman Sierra Open Shelves Bookcase)

 

If you thought the Hekman desk was cool, then check out the must-have matching bookcase.

 

Featuring the same Mindi veneer and solid construction with hand-forged 7/8" iron posts in a black finish, this bookcase is ideal for your office or school supplies as well as decorative accent pieces.



 

(Hekman Athens Bookcase)

 

If you’re looking for something a little more bold and striking, we suggest the Hekman Furniture Athens Bookcase. Constructed with a combination of solid mahogany and a mahogany veneer in an Athens finish, this open bookcase makes a statement in your home.

 

3. A Supportive Chair

 

(Brassex Adjustable Desk Chair)

 

Every home office needs a good desk chair, and preferably one that adjusts to your needs.

 

Brassex’s desk chairs provide a sleek look, durable construction, and a gas lift and tilt mechanism to achieve optimum comfort for your unique needs. 

 

Finished with chrome and a faux leather upholstery you can be comfortable without breaking the bank. Currently offered at a special price, we recommend that you contact your local Smitty’s to see stock availability.
