Working from home has become the norm for many — and it’s showing no sign of slowing down. Whether going fully remote or transitioning to a hybrid system, people are designating home offices as increasingly vital parts of their space. So, as we approach just over two years since many of us first started living the WFH life, it might be time to give that important area a refresh. You deserve it after all that hard work!
There are plenty of benefits of doing so, too. Having a workspace that is tailored to your style could give you a boost of motivation and productivity. Plus, it can help set boundaries and avoid distractions. The key is to find items that are as stylish as they are practical. From handy desk organizers to vibrant accessories, we’ve rounded up our favorites to give your WFH setup a fashionably functional update, ahead.
KonMari Desktop Organizer and Monitor Stand
Store away supplies and raise your screen to new heights with this two-in-one desktop organizer and monitor stand. When horizontal, you can pop your computer on top while stashing items in its curvy compartments (which can be removed and adjusted to your preference). Though, in case WFH does come to an end for you, it can be placed vertically to hold knick knacks anywhere in the home, from pens to mail and more.
Goodee Alumina Table Lamp
This stunning lamp offers soft, ambient light with a simple, sleek design. The bulb can be dimmed to your ideal brightness. And the aluminum base comes in a range of serene matte hues from dusty rose to sage green. You can even hang it on the wall as a sconce if you’re short on table space.
Open Spaces Small Storage Bins
As the saying goes, a disorganized room means a disorganized mind. So, keep your headspace and workspace clear with these cute storage bins. Available in a set of two, they are stackable and easy-to-clean, seamlessly hiding any clutter. Choose from vibrant candy-colored or subdued wooden lids to match your aesthetic.

The chair is height-adjustable with a swivel function that helps you move around (and around) to your heart’s desire.
Grovemade Desk Mat & Protector
This modern matte desk pad is all you need to define your desk space. Although it’s the perfect size for your keyboard and mouse, the pad has a smooth texture that’s ideal as a writing surface, too. Meanwhile, the corkscrew bottom ensures no slippage occurs. Choose from classic black and navy hues, both of which will seamlessly accent any style.

Available through Bloomscape, it’ll get delivered straight to your door in a planter of your choosing.
