An Office Tribute

Although I stopped watching “The Office” a few years ago, it’s still sad to say farewell to characters that made you laugh and cry for many years. Those of us who work in an office know the daily grind that comes with a “desk job.” Watching “The Office” was a 30-minute escape to a place that was very familiar but with an insane cast of colorful characters and a lot of witty humor.

My 9 to 5 office is not that entertaining. Cluttered by mounds of paperwork and my old coffee mug, it’s not for the faint-hearted. But my home office is the complete opposite.

My home office has 3 things: my fish bowl for serenity, my laptop for emailing and blogging, and a lamp. No paper. No pens. No coffee mug. It’s just the way I like it.

That’s how your personal work space should be. It should be your sanctuary away from the daily grind. It’s a place to work, but without the chaos.

At HomeWorld, we have several options to turn a corner of your room or any entire room into a functional and smart home office.

Functionality has a strong presence in this collection. The dark mahogany veneer writing desk, for example makes use of every inch, providing a built-in bookcase and a drawer for a keyboard or laptop. Need more display area? The matching bookcase has adjustable and stationary shelves and two file drawers at the base.
