Whether you work from home as a steady diet or often take work home, having a comfortable home office just makes life easier. From shelving and storage solutions for organizing your necessities and office items, to a comfortable desk chair that doesn’t strain your back, your office furniture can reflect your personality and taste, while being just as comfortable and inviting. Even though it’s typically work time, your office should be a room in the home you enjoy going to. The desk is certainly the focal point of your office and we invite you to choose from modern and contemporary desk designs from west elm. From complete mid-century wall units to modern, modular desk sets, there are a number of choices to keep your office looking both professional and comfortable.

An excellent way to create a small workstation is by adding a medium-sized mid-century desk to your office. With enough drawer space to store papers, pens and other office supplies, this type of desk also has plenty of room for your computer. For smaller spaces, choose a mini-desk option, which is great as an artist’s workstation or in a child’s bedroom. A mini desk is also easily paired with a mini secretary, to complete a small home office ensemble.

Those that need more storage space in their home office may want to consider a mid-century wall unit. Available in bright, vivid colors or subtle neutrals, these desks fit flat against the wall, offering over-the-desk shelving and other cabinet space. With enough room to place files and folders, decor, office supplies and even media such as a flat-screen TV, these units help to make your office look not only more inviting, but also more professional, should you need to conduct a video call or have clients over for a meeting. Pair a wall unit or two with matching mid-century desk chairs to complete your office ensemble.

Perhaps you prefer a more modern, industrial style. Similarly, smaller modular desk sets create the tone in your office space, with cabinet and drawer space to offer some storage solutions. A solid mango wood construction with a solid metal frame offers years of durability and use. Choose a sleek-lined modular desk with built-in box cabinet storage or one without for a more open air atmosphere to your office space. You might also be drawn to a wall desk with an industrial modular look, with over-the-desk storage space to display decor or trophies, store books and files or use as added room for office supplies. Pair the industrial modular look with a file cabinet and bookcase to keep everything you need organized and close at hand for a smooth running work day. How about a spacious L-shaped unit? Place one in any corner in your office for a nook that provides you with ample space to not only get the job done, but to be comfortable and organized while doing it. You may also use an L-shaped unit separately, allowing you more open space underneath the desk.

Shelf desks are another option, and are a unique way to enliven your office. These units provide plenty of counter space for your monitor and workstation, but also add ladder shelving above the desk for both storage and decoration. A mid-century bookshelf desk is another neat idea when you need over-the-desk storage but don’t want to lose your sense of modern and contemporary style. Choosing eco-friendly and FSC-certified options gives you a chance to contribute to a healthier planet. Use reclaimed wood in the style of a mid-century desk or industrial modern desk set. Other unique desk options include an oval mini desk, which is perfect for corners and lather-wrapped desks. Developed in a classic, yet modern style, leather-wrapped desks let you add a splash of color to your home office ensemble and decor.
