What you need for the perfect home office
A home office is more of an essential than a luxury these days. Make a space that inspires you and fires up your creativity, with unique vintage office chairs that are functional and fab to look at.
The perfect home office has three key ingredients: a durable desk, good lighting, and perhaps most importantly of all, a comfortable vintage office chair. Get these right and you’ll love your office more than you ever thought possible!
Lucky you if your office has plenty of natural light. But if you need a helping hand, a table lamp is best for illuminating your immediate workspace. For more ambient lighting, adding a floor lamp will diffuse light and create a cosy and calming atmosphere.
A solid desk with enough space to do the things you need is at the heart of the home office. Desks can be traditional or ultra-modern, but they all need to be hardwearing. For this reason, desks made from wood are a firm favourite – and the wooden desks in our vintage collection have stood the test of time. For extra storage, look for desks with built-in drawers. In small spaces, a simple table will do.
Choosing the right vintage office chair
From classic leather Chesterfield’s to Scandinavian bucket seats, our vintage office chairs come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re going to spend long hours sitting, you’ll need an office chair that’s comfortable. In this case, look for solid back rests over spindles and a padded cushion for extra comfort. Tired typists will welcome an arm rest to lean on throughout the day. And if you’re going to be moving around a lot, a swivel chair or chair on wheels is your best bet.
If you’re looking for more of a decorative vintage desk chair, comfort can take a back seat! A vintage office chair can change the look and feel of a room instantly, so choose wisely. The leather and chrome combination of the classic Eames office chair is a timeless look that never goes out of style and creates a cool, retro vibe in a flash.
Mid-century teak vintage office chairs are elegant and understated, with clean lines and padded leather seats that give comfort and class in one. In modern rooms, Scandi-style minimalist chairs look a treat. While studded leather captain’s chairs are ideal for more traditional home offices.
Dressing your home office
With all the heavy duty furniture in place, you can have some fun with your office accessories. Pots and planters filled with plants are perfect for breathing life into a space and creating a sense of calm. Make walls more interesting with your favourite art prints, photographs or even a tapestry. Add some comforting finishing touches like a soft vintage rug, cosy armchair or lovely lamp and your office will be somewhere you want to spend time in, not escape from.
