Now that most of us are working from home at some point or another, it’s time to invest in your home office or study. The best part? There’s no one around to judge how best you work – here’s our guide to the stylish and functional ways you can furnish your workspace, from mid-century modern armchairs to high tech, futuristic lighting that will ensure you stay inspired.

Not just office chairs: sit – or lie – any way you want while working 

The best thing about being home is you can sprawl on a bean bag, or prop yourself up in bed – all while working. And, if you need a new designer chair to inspire you, well, no one’s stopping you either.

 

Worktops for efficiency, and inspiration

Nobody says work must be done in a study. If you prefer working near a window on one of your house’s multiple landings, get a work desk (or work desks, if you have a nomadic working style). For those sequestered at home with family, a longer desk offers the motivational energy of having company.
