Modern Lifestyle - Working at Home and Loving It

Working out of your home is often considered an enviable luxury which comes with many benefits - you can go to the office in your robe, prop your feet up without fear of being written up, shop online when you are talking to your boss, and so on.  Though all those perks are quite appealing, the coolest thing about having a home office is you design your own digs. While organization and functionality are high on the list of importance, you want a space that inspires your enthusiasm and helps you bring your 'A' game.

Ahhh, "Just Right"

There are several things you should keep in mind when you design your office. Other than the best internet connection and a state of the art computer, a comfortable chair should take the top spot on your priority list. Do you prefer high- or low- back, arms or no arms, leather or mesh? Most likely you are going to have to take the executive endorsed Goldilocks approach before you find the "just right" chair. Modern digs can not only help you find the perfect ergonomic design for maximum comfort, but point you in the right direction to fit your style, taste and color preference.

If departure from tradition is what you seek, consider our Oldenburg chair which offers the most diversity for adding a splash of color to your space. This chair has all the bells and whistles including lumbar support and adjustable tilt, with a mesh back that comes in tangerine, lime, silver, blue and black.

Whistle While You Work

Once you have the perfect "cush for your tush", choose the desk that best fits your space and your modern decor. For maximum sleekness with optimal surface space, take a look at Modern Dig's Sussex Collection. Whether you sign your John Hancock with your left or right hand, the Sussex tiered return work space can be arranged to accommodate your needs. The angled design of the aluminum legs also allows for maximum leg room providing a shin-friendly environment. If you are so fortunate as to have a window to peer out of while you are working, our Xavier, Skyline, Jordan and Amici desks offer you an expansive work space with zero above the desk visual impediment.

Style on File

Probably one of the most unpopular - yet necessary - office accoutrements is the bulky, unattractive steel file cabinet. Fortunately, with elegantly crafted pieces like the Arundel Credenza you can mark this one off of your list of worries. This beautiful cabinet fits perfectly into any Modern decor and is available in a white lacquer finish or a Zebrano veneer. 

With the essentials out of the way, forget it is your place of work and let your imagination go crazy with cool wall art, contemporary desk lamps and accent pieces that pop! After all, when the day is done, you are only steps away from your own private escape you call home.
