Are you fleeing the rat race, unable to justify the next huge increase from the Rail Company or finding new ways to economise and maximise your precious time? So many more of us have discovered the best solution is to set up an office at home.
It must be more than somewhere to keep paperwork.However, if you are limited to transforming your kitchen table into an ad-hoc workhorse by day, and then laying it for a cosy dinner by night, then do not not unless you want your worst nightmare. No compromises ! - what you need is a permanent office zone. One which is both comfortable and inspiring and definitely somewhere with a dash of classic style - because we all deserve a hit of eye candy when that tedious report needs finishing. From years of experience I know a home office should be a retreat from the rest of the house. It must be more than somewhere to keep paperwork. The office needs to have peace and quiet, a professional environment to deal with the work of a professional. Yes you. Good storage and a desk fit for purpose, and with that all important comfortable chair. Why not decorate in restful colours to promote calmness and pictures of your favourite pastimes combined with a few personal touches . I like to think of my space as a study rather than a home office. I like my Navy Tri Pod Lamp, Eiffel Office Chair and my classic Eiffel Table. I have both a cosy and a very productive space. Retro Office Furniture is hot today coming on the heels of the ApprenticeTV show where the Boardroom and outer office of the Lord Alan Sugar are furnished with Eames, Florence Knoll and Noguchi classic pieces. Sales of retro furniture have rocketed on line in the wake of such influential programmes. The style is all about post-war materials - it is sexy and sassy - and will make your day a little more pleasurable.
