A deep coffered ceiling in the hall expands to a higher ceiling with exposed beams at the opening to the study. A computer desk with built in bookshelf and mint green office chairs creates a calm work environment while a natural wood activities table and leather sofa expand the options for the room.
Before the remodel, TV trays acted as makeshift computer desks in the living room. Chip Wade, host of HGTV's Elbow Room and Curb Appeal, upgraded the family’s office space with this custom, swivel-arm desk for two. The desktops swing out, allowing Mom and Dad to face the family while they work. The desks tuck back into the wall when computer work (or play) is done.
This upstairs landing-turned-computer-station is the perfect spot for kids to do homework or hang out after school. Storage cabinets flank the floating desk, and striped cube stools provide stylish seating.
A desktop scanner can sweep those stacks off your desk and into safe digital storage. Some models don’t require a computer to run and use batteries, so you can take them to whatever corner a pile lurks in.
With custom banquette seating and convenient desk space, this kitchen is perfect for an at-home office. A desktop computer, plenty of storage space and all the room to spread out makes it an easy place to work with all the comforts of home.
The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.
This home office features an attractive navy-colored wall unit with bookcases, desk, and computer station as well as space for a TV. Creatively-placed books and household decorations line the bookcase for an uncluttered arrangement, and the comfy wing chairs are a great addition for a reading nook.
On one side of the main floor at Pereira & O'Dell San Francisco are the individual work stations for the advertisers. Each station contains a computer, a large desk and a rolling chair. However, when staffers need a break or to meet with a client, they can move over to the sitting area of the main floor. This area is equipped with several ottomans and tables and large chairs that complement the colors of the rugs under the workspace desks.
Each of the two homework nook's floating desks were configured with enough depth to accommodate books and games as well as laptop and desktop computers once the boys are old enough to use them for school. Instead of pairing the desks with themed children's chairs, midcentury-modern Bertoia chairs were added.
Form meets function in this clean, modern home office. The desk provides ample space for computers, printers, papers -- anything, including art objects! Shelves display favorite and often-used books, while simple cabinets are on hand to hide items that don't need to be shown.
