Smart working at home: how to furnish the office space at home.

Due also to the health emergency from corona virus the concept of office work has completely changed. The work of the new millennium is smart and mainly “from home”. The advantage is time management: in order to achieve the required goals or deadlines we can modulate it independently, the risk is that we never disconnect.

Create a cozy environment.

In this new context, the boundaries between work and private life seem increasingly blurred and balancing needs is not always easy. It is advisable to create a small working corner all for us, even if you live in a small apartment, where you can arrange your working day in a harmonious way.

In today’s modern homes, an environment specifically dedicated to smart working, like a real studio, is a bit obsolete. Hence the need to set up a space inside the living room or even in a bedroom, with versatile and very elegant solutions. Let’s see some examples.

Avoid office furniture.

One very important thing: no desks and office chairs or cold materials, which remind us of the rigidity and formality of the workplace. The smart working  corner should be pleasant, welcoming and reflect our personality and tastes. So even a simple footstool could be used as a chair…

A very important element is the lighting.

If your office corner is illuminated by natural light, this is sure to be a great luxury. Sunlight makes everything more relaxing not only for the spirit, but also for the view.

But in the evening or on dark days it is important to have a good source of artificial light at your disposal; for this you will need to choose the most suitable desk lamp.

Finally, don’t forget the comfort!

If, as in this period, you are forced to work from home for many hours, choose ergonomic, enveloping armchairs, perhaps even with a high backrest that allows the spine to remain straight.

If the office corner is used for a short time, just for the time to take a look at the email, socials or quickly arrange some documents, you can bet much more on aesthetics than comfort.

When the world of hospitality and the workplace converge, new types of furniture can be created: modular armchairs and sofas that welcome, protect, define territories of privacy or create sets for communities.
They have always been defined as furniture for in-between areas, but their function is evolving. And the high backrest has become a must have!

Third spaces are becoming first spaces. Indeed the armchairs with high backrest or with ears are countless, despite this there are many new shapes.

The novelty is above all in the approach and the new way of using armchairs and sofas. Previously it was furniture for in-between areas or “between desks”; now they seem to replace desks.

Indeed the use of the sofa as a place to work with your laptop is no longer just a prerogative of the Millennials.

It’s important to bring ergonomics to the in-between areas.
The solution to work comfortably is to equip sofas and armchairs with accessories and integrated technological equipment that can transform the armchairs into real workstations. For example, small worktops, also height adjustable and rotating, armrests, electrical and USB sockets.

Therefore the quantity and quality of the accessories and the modularity are decisive elements. As well as the ease of reconfiguration and portability.

Padded, quilted, quilted, pleated and with evident stitching enhance the tactile qualities of the high-performance upholstery fabrics, selected with great care, and surprising colour combinations. Even left visible structures sometimes become a decorative element.
