What do I 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 both functional and fabulous to look at.

The perfect home office has three key elements. Firstly, a durable desk. 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 definitely stood the test of time. For extra storage, look for desks with built-in drawers. In small spaces, a simple table will do. Plus, a vintage wooden office chair will look even better when partnered with a striking desk.

Secondly, good lighting is essential. Lucky you if your office already has plenty of natural light—but if you need to brighten things up, 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.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly of all, a comfortable vintage desk chair. Combine all three of these essentials to create the perfect vintage office, evocative of timeless style and elegance.

How do I choose the right vintage office chair?

From classic vintage leather Chesterfield office chairs to Scandinavian bucket seats, our vintage desk 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 backrests over spindles and a padded cushion for extra comfort. Tired typists will welcome an armrest to lean on throughout the day. Or if you’re going to be moving around a lot, a swivel chair or chair on wheels is your best bet.

A vintage office chair can change the look and feel of a room instantly, so choose wisely. If you’re looking for more of a decorative style, a retro office chair might just be the one for you. 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 wooden office chairs are elegant and understated, with clean lines and padded leather seats that give comfort and class. In modern rooms, Scandi-style minimalist chairs look a treat. While studded leather captain’s chairs are ideal for more traditional home offices.

How should I style my vintage leather office chair?

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 soon be somewhere you want to spend time in, not escape from.
