Couples who work together from home can face an occasional extra stress or strain on their relationship at times, but of course they can also look forward to the possibility of becoming more synchronised and more harmonious than ever before. Usually, the key to successful co-working lies in the working environment itself, so the way a home office is kitted out can be of paramount importance.
There are questions to be asked from the earliest stage, such as whether to face each other or whether to be back to back, how best to come to an agreement on the optimum working temperature and, often a crucial one, how to put up with their choice of music without tearing your hair out! Here at Modish Living, we have a range of exquisite furniture items which can make your home office the perfect spot for productivity.
Reclaimed wood furniture lends itself perfectly to office working, and the beautiful Oldman Pink Industrial Reclaimed Wood Desk is always a good choice. This exquisite piece is available in several sizes, so it’s ideal for both large and small rooms. A couple of these will be perfect for working couples, especially perhaps when paired with the supremely comfortable Hudson Living Brown Capri Leather Chair. Home office furniture can look wonderful and feel practical at the same time, after all.
Take a well-earned break and relax
Modern office design usually includes rest areas or break-out zones these days, and your home office can do likewise. Unwinding in style on the sumptuous Maverick Retro Leather Armchair is a must at times, in part because a leather armchair will help you regain your energy. When accompanied by either the Spitfire Cerato Brown Leather Footstool or the luxurious Leather Storage Footstool, you can relax like never before.
Whether you choose a reclaimed wood desk or an ultra-modern contemporary desk, you will also want to think about the rest of the home office. Storage can be a major issue, because the last thing you want is to face a mountain of clutter every morning. Thankfully, beautiful solutions can be implemented, such as the elegant Farringdon Reclaimed Wood Bookcase, a must for those who want to remain organised.
Beautiful artwork has the power to inspire in any office environment, and this applies just as much in the home office. Whether your choice would be the quirky, such as the delightful Laughing Donkey Canvas Art, or the more serious, like the majestic Stag Canvas Art, it has to be something that speaks to you both.
Once your office is complete, be sure to reward yourself with a break in the rest area. Settle back on your comfy armchair with a satisfied smile on your face, a cup of coffee on your Luxe Elm Parquet Reclaimed Wood Side Table, and a wonderful sense of achievement in the air. Your home office may just end up becoming your favourite room in the whole house.
