Home Office Space With Concealable Shelving
Contrasting wood finishes give this office a sense of warmth while highlighting the custom spun glass rondelles set into the cabinet panels. The panels slide to the sides to conceal the bookshelves and office items and to reveal hand-turned wood pieces made by the homeowner that are displayed on the center shelves. The desk features custom-fabricated legs.

Gray-Green Home Office Sitting Area With Gallery Wall
To create a multifunctional seating area in an attorney’s home office, designer Tim Barber chose a flexible mix of vintage and reproduction pieces. “For a room versatile enough to prepare a brief, host tea with friends, steer fundraising projects, help with homework and occasionally accommodate overflow guests, we designed a plan with pieces light enough to be moved easily — and durable enough to survive frequent rearranging (nothing too precious here),” he says. “The sofa is a Lino Comfort sleeper from Design Within Reach, which makes the office a convertible guest bedroom in a pinch. We love the deep seat cushions and low flat arms: perfect for a power nap. The chairs are vintage 1957 Knoll Saarinen armchairs, reupholstered in Kravet fabric. The Saarinen cocktail table is a reproduction from Room & Board.”
With a plush striped sofa, leather ottoman and dedicated desk, this home office is both stylish and fully functional. Walls of window keep the space well-lit for work, while a built-in shelf displays the owners' favorite accents and books.
A small space next to a dining room is converted into a modern office by installing strategically placed shelving. A metal barstool tucks away to maintain the space's functional yet nonintrusive purpose.
