2020! It’s not just a new year, but a new decade — and it’s a great time to reflect and consider what the next year (or 10) might have in store. What would you like to change? What goals would you like to achieve?


Many of us set goals around work and career, whether it's broadening a skill set, finding new approaches, or transitioning from working at the office to working at home — maybe it’s time to start your own business. 


Whatever the case, the key to achieving your goals is giving yourself the necessary time and space. For work and career goals, a dedicated and well-appointed workspace will make all the difference. 


To maximize your productivity, create a working environment that you will enjoy, that you will look forward to returning to, and that will make you want to roll up your sleeves and get to it. 


Hard work requires intense thought, so aim for an environment that feels spacious, clean, and free of distraction. It doesn’t take much. If you have a good desk and the right kind of storage unit you can easily create a space that will inspire you to take this new decade to new heights.


Our Smitty’s decorators have come up with two looks for a new office:


Keep It Traditional

Crafted in Canada from the finest North American maple, Durham Furniture’s Palladian Writing Table is a charming take on its antique counterpart. With turned legs and beveled edges, this piece is elegant and sophisticated. Two drawers at the front and an upper section of compartments accommodate your daily small storage needs. Customize this piece by choosing your favourite wood finish from Durham’s broad selection of colours and finishes.


Complement your writing table perfectly with Durham’s Palladian Bachelor’s Chest. Dating as far back as the 17th century, the bachelor’s chest was traditionally a multi-purpose piece of furniture — and we’re bringing it back! This gorgeous piece has reeded edges and is built from solid maple, providing plenty of space for additional storage. It will keep your desk organized, clutter-free, and ready for the magic to happen.


Go For A Rustic Look

If your preference is rustic, we recommend Durham’s Distillery Writing Table. Built from solid maple by top Canadian craftsmen, this desk will get your year started right. Its simple design, tapered legs, and two soft-close drawers are perfection in a desk. Choose your favourite of three finishes for this handsome piece.


A clean desk means a clear mind. 


Keep the surface of your writing table immaculate with the Madison County Barn Door Accent Cabinet by Jofran. Jofran’s barnwood finish will match Durham’s whiskey finish beautifully and provide space for all of your office storage needs. To complete a rustic and natural look, accent your office with an earthy palette of dark greens, taupes, beiges, and browns. For a contemporary look, add touches of white, cream, and even an occasional pop of colour.


Whatever your style may be, Smitty’s decorators are here to help you achieve the look you want. Come visit us at one of our two locations in Hanover or Kitchener.
