Summer is here! With Memorial Day behind us and the temperatures rising, the urge to ditch the office and get outdoors couldn't be stronger.
If you're a work-a-holic like I am, stepping away from your desk is easier said than done. So I thought, why not bring the summer escape vibes inside?
Here are five products to help you transform your home office for the summer.
First thing's first—the desk. No home office is complete without a proper workspace, but sometimes we opt for form over function. Make sure when choosing a desk, you select one that is both comfortable and stylish. The Made Goods Lindsey Desk is one of my favorite pieces because it checks both boxes. It's available in two sizes to best fill your room, and it's made with two large drawers to help you declutter and stay organized. Plus, the beautiful burl wood helps make this the centerpiece of any office.
The second most important piece of furniture in your home office is your desk chair. Now, if you do decide to go with an impactful workspace like the Lindsey Desk, I suggest you choose a chair that is complimentary and chic at the same time. The Worlds Away Jolie Chair is the perfect choice. With its thick acrylic body and slopping curved design, the Jolie Chair combines sophisticated style with modern materials. And because the acrylic doesn't take up any visual space, it's a fresh take for Summer.
Once you've covered the two most important pieces, it's time to accessorize. Being that it's Summertime, I want to add some natural coastal elements to give the office a bit more dimension. This Driftwood Mirror from Studio A does just that. At 5 feet tall, it is a statement piece that makes a big impact. My favorite place to hang a mirror is on a wall directly across from a window because it helps to balance the room's walls and reflect the most light into the space.
Another way to add great light and coastal style to your home office is with the Arteriors Home Tilda Chandelier. This best-selling piece is created with hundreds of white-washed wooden dowels that are assembled into a candelabra-style chandelier. Available in two sizes, this hugely popular light fixture brings beautiful light into the space, and will literally light up the space with positive coastal vibes.
If you can't feel sand beneath your toes while you work, you might as well feel something comfortable, right? Our new selection of woven rugs from Four Hands provide style and comfort in an array of patterns and textures, all of which will help to ground your room. One of my favorites is the new hand-woven Black Cotton Rug. It features a great diamond and stripe pattern that is visually stunning as well as braided fringe accents on either end that add a casual vibe.
