In a bid to beat the nasty commute, spend more time with our families, or simply to try out the freelance lifestyle for ourselves, more and more of us are using our homes as an office these days. At least one room in the house (a bedroom, the dining room or a converted garage) has usually been designated The Study.
Luckily it’s become easier than ever to furnish these newly-altered spaces thanks to an increase in choice. From corner desks to circular storage units and affordable leather office chairs at Chic Living you can find office furniture to fit most rooms - regardless of size or shape. We’ve also made sure there’s a selection to suit every pocket.
For those who don’t particularly like to be reminded they’re in an office you’ll love our range of funky filing cabinets in bright red enamel (the more sophisticated – or male - may prefer the black version).
Scandinavian pine and white office furniture is still popular and we’re not surprised. It provides a light, uplifting look in an office (and let’s face it, some mornings we really need that).
Office lighting is important too. And as you’d imagine we have a wide and wonderful selection in this department, from traditional angel poise desk lamps to polycarbonate, clamp and tripod versions.
And what about stationery we hear you ask. At Chic Living you can go to town with trendy Orla Kierley and moleskin notepads and keep your schedule up-to-date with our Filofax organisers.
And tired of chewable biros and Parker pens, preferring to write with a classier instrument these days to mark your new independent status? We’ve a beautiful range of fountain pens from £40 to £400. Working from home you can afford to treat yourself to an expensive writing implement seeing as there’s no pesky colleague around to ‘appropriate’ it…
