Whether or not you’re a work-from-home proponent, I think we can all see the benefit of having designated work spaces in our homes. But having an in-home office doesn’t have to mean a major renovation or building on a new addition. With a few paper supplies from Missing Q, a space-saving Design Within Reach desk, and a killer Eames Executive office chair, you’ll have everything you need to outfit an efficient (and zoom-call-ready) home office.

Note to Self

Say something with your writing utensils—and we don’t just mean what you produce with it. In addition to personalized stationery, Missing Q Press offers pencils with custom imprinted messages to help you make your mark.

Take It Up a Notch

Take your home office from cubicle to corner office by layering in luxe upgrades, like this custom leather desk blotter from Dallas-based Larru Leathers.

Get Tacky

Chalkboard paint is cute for kids’ spaces but won’t quite cut it for your chic home office. Instead, go floor to ceiling with one of Phillip Jeffries’ natural cork wallpapers, which allow you to use your walls like a bulletin board (and hides any holes left by thumbtacks). We first learned this trick from designer Doniphan Moore, whose home office is lined in “Enchanted Woods” wallpaper. So pin, rearrange, repeat. (It’s like Pinterest IRL.)

Desk for Success

Any good office begins with the right foundation: a handsome desk. The “Vella” desk from Design Within Reach has simple lines but a luxe leather finish (available in four neutral shades) that would look great in any space. Pair it with the Eames Executive Chair, the hands-down favorite of our Best Designers, which is comfortable yet easy on the eyes.
