This serene home office features a sitting area with a white sofa covered in various-shaped pillows and sitting against a stone tile wall with a pair of sconces and black-and-white artwork. A graphic area rug complements two modern coffee tables of different heights.
Hoping to please a young single bachelor with a keen eye for modern and contemporary design, Justine Sterling set out to modernize his open plan living space and also provide her client with a functional design. The narrow living room space was one of the biggest challenges in the space planning. Here, Sterling designed a small work space and sitting area with built-in bookshelves around the fireplace to neatly display books and personal treasures.
This sleek home office features a bright orange accent wall and trendy animal-hide rug. A streamlined black sofa provides seating for clients, while a high window allows natural light to flow through the space.
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.”
In this stately room, traditional furnishings blend with lavish lighting and reflective surfaces to create a space that's light-filled and rich. A desk with a feminine design and striking green finish is paired with a unique, curved chair with a throne-like presence. A traditional rug anchors the main seating area showcasing burgundy armchairs.
The Ian Kimmerly painting which serves as a focal point in the home office featured at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 was inspired by the unfocused, staticky look that damaged videos take. A cozy daybed and armchair offer a comfortable spot for reading or napping.
This neutral sitting area replaced a home office during HGTV's Buying and Selling. Two slipcovered chairs and a small silver table define the space, while built-in shelves with storage baskets keep must-have books handy.
A lime green accent wall mimics the color of the cabinet in this eclectic sitting room. Natural light pours through the room, creating an inviting gathering place for coffee and conversation and a separate space for home office work.
