Products for the Work-from-Home Lifestyle
Since many people are working from home due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are featuring some home office ideas this month. If you’re new to the work-from-home lifestyle, you’ll need to change some of your habits and routines to make working from home a success, but most importantly you will need a place to work that offers all the conveniences of the office, with the comfort of working from home.
Starting with desks, we recommend the Emerson Writing Desk Collection’s Soho Desk. This is the answer for a modern and stylish look, with a built-in center drawer providing the perfect place to store away pencils and tablets without cluttering up usable workspace. Another choice is from the OS Laminate Collection. This single desk comes in a choice of eight finishes and boasts high quality commercial grade finishes solidly constructed for years of service. The Variant Collection, also by Office Source, has sleek, stylish components that promote diversity, simplicity and functional modularity. With eight finishes to choose from, it’s perfect for the modern home office. Finally, if you’re trying to avoid the harmful long-term effects of sitting too much, consider StandUp Standing Desks. These desks are available in eight finishes, and are easy, quick, and quiet to operate. They offer optimal vertical range to accommodate people of all sizes. This mesh task chair from the Crossway Collection is a great choice for seating. It’s classic, comfortable, and comes with pneumatic seat height adjustment. Finish off your space with complementary accessories such as a desk mount power module, mobile multi-power strip, LED puck light, and a flex USB light.
