All about designing the right home office..

All about designing the right home office..

Today I am sharing with all of you the secrets to having a great modern looking office at home.. For example what chairs house, what desks go in the correct place all in search of the perfect modern look.. 

Hope you enjoy the pics and post...

The petal lounge chair... 


Contemporary comfort. This Petal lounge chair will welcome you after a hard day of work with its modern style and soft velour microfabric cushions. You can lean back and kick up your feet onto the matching ottoman. The bold cushions come in black or red, and will pleasantly contrast with the chrome-plated swivel base. This is the perfect compliment to a modern office, and would look smashing behind a bold silver or glass executive desk. You can order the Petal lounge chair and ottoman from for $759.99.

The matrix desk.. 


Work with perfect symmetry when you use this Martix Desk System as your office desk. It is designed for the modern office, with its symmetrical layout, its simple and un-embellished lines, and its spare use of material. The two main surfaces of this desk are made from faux leather, which are sophisticated and elegant while being functional hard surfaces to write and work upon. The base of this unit is made from chrome colored welded metal, which is durable, long-lasting and sturdy. Both the center joining unit and the shelf on the left unit are made from thick tempered glass. The abundance of surface space and stylish design will make this Matrix Desk System the centerpiece of any office. You can find this desk at TheFurniture.comfor $295.00.

The wave desk...


MODERN SPACE SAVING SOLUTIONS.  Home offices do not have to take up a lot of room, nor do they need a dedicated room.  Save space, while making a design statement, through use of the Wave Desk.  Not only does this furniture piece feature sleek lines and a minimalist design, it also is large enough to accommodate general office needs.  Available in either birch or walnut finishes, this desk is constructed from a metal tube base and measures 26d x 40w x 29.5/35h.  Create the home office look you are after with the Wave Desk!  You can purchase this desk through for $899.00.

the Amazon Krystal Executive Desk

BRING SOME OO-LA-LA INTO YOUR OFFICE SPACE!  The bling factor this desk possesses is perfect for pad dwellers, as well as office settings.  For those looking for a mix of modern and industrial sophistication in their work environments, the Amazon Krystal Executive Desk delivers that and more.  Designed by Uffix, this desk is constructed from glass, wood veneer, and aluminum.  The modesty panel in front is available in wenge and beech finishes.  Couple this piece with either bold or neutral color palettes successfully.  Create a statement that suits your style and accommodates your needs.  You can purchase this desk from for $4,631.00

The architect desk...

A MIX OF OLD WORLD FEATURES WITH MODERN LINES.  Office spaces, both in homes and in businesses, each deserve the same design attention.  Who wants to work in an environment that is stale, cold, and uninteresting?  By bringing in office furniture, such as the Architect Executive Desk, achieving function and beauty happen simultaneously.  Not only is the work environment interesting, but also it is conducive to creativity and productivity.  Featuring a solid steel tube frame and a glass desk top, this look can be coupled successfully with any color and pattern.  You can purchase this desk through for $649.00.

The jimmy office desk.. 

FINALLY, A CLUTTER-PROOF DESK WITH STYLE AND FUNCTION! I don't know about you, but I have a very difficult time preventing clutter in my office, my desk in particular.  The designer of the Jimmy Office Desk, however, has thought of everything.  Sporting a sleek and modern finish, there are hidden compartments and inserts throughout the entire construction of this simplistic looking design.  It is not simple at all, though.  When each drawer is opened, more compartments are revealed!  This desk features either a baked or a raw finish, and stainless steel legs.  Because of its small size (28d x 59w x 29.5h inches), it will fit perfectly in a home office. You can purchase this desk through for $4,800.00.

Constellation Desk...

A GOOD DESK IS HARD TO FIND – As I discovered when I moved to Seattle, it can be difficult to find a nice desk. I spent what seemed like forever looking for something that wasn’t too big for my small apartment. I ended up making my own using parts from a hardware store and an enormous Danish furniture store. Though I kind of wish I had come across this gem before I did. The desk, by Zuo Modern, is big enough for work, but not too big, and made entirely of tempered glass with cast aluminum supports. It also includes a keyboard tray and tower stand.

The big bend desk..

WE’VE FEATURED Jeff Miller’s work in the past; what can we say: we like his sculptural approach to furniture design. Big Bend is a gorgeous desk supported by two curved plywood legs whose size and stance cry out for architectural style photography. A particularly nice touch is the multi-ply top, whose flat surface is elevated slightly from the curved legs in such a way that it appears to float; this effectively lightens the table visually and allows its curves to flow freely.

There you have it tips on how to get your office noticed by al who see it..
