No longer relegated to a place of secondary importance, the home office has quickly an essential area for the entire family. Working individuals use it to prepare and send reports, communicate with colleagues and other important tasks. Kids and teens need the space to investigate and do homework – although they also use it a lot to talk with friends and check social media, too – and others use the room as a personal haven, a place where they can have a bit of peace to plan and reflect on the next day’s activities. That’s why west elm has designed high-quality and distinctive storage pieces for your office. From practical file cabinets to sophisticated bookcases and consoles, we focus both on functionality and decor.
A variety of pieces let you choose the design that makes you feel most productive, inspired and creative. Whether you want an office that feels warm and relaxing, or professional and precise, we can help you find what you need. For an especially tranquil touch, a beautiful area rug can be a great choice while also providing comfort and a warm surface for bare feet. Our scaffold bookshelf, for example, features five open shelves that can contain reference materials, documents, office supplies, photographs and more easily. Its sleek lines create an airy ambience that combines well with virtually any wall color while adding a positive touch to the room. The ample shelving also provides abundant opportunities for adornments. We recommend placing a distinctive decorative piece that matches your personality. Photographs are another excellent design idea.
