To help you plan the perfect work space, we looked back at 2016 and here are some of the most popular home office furniture ideas - as recommended by our customers.

Clean, uncluttered oak


Make your working day a pleasure with our best selling,  stylishly designed, Mobel Oak large hidden home office twin pedestal desk.  It's a substantial piece of oak office furniture, with plenty of storage and is made from solid oak.  The wooden desk has two roomy stationary drawers and for extra working space, a handy pull out keyboard drawer.  Plus, there are two large cupboards - the right hand side is designed to hold A4 paper (on a removable shelf), a tower unit, modem or wireless router and the left hand cupboard is designed to hold a printer and a scanner and has a removable shelf.  A very handy addition, are cable holes at the back of the desk to allow invisible wiring.  The desk is a beautiful piece of furniture, carefully made, with a hardwood back and drawer inners, dovetail drawer joints and finished with smart, brushed steel, two tone handles.


To keep your desk space clear to give you plenty of room to work, why not add some extra storage with the matching Mobel Oak reversible wall rack?  It has nine pigeon holes, a useful shelf at the top and is perfect for storing pens, stationary or post.  The wall rack is made of solid oak and matches each of the four wooden desks in the Mobel Oak range perfectly.    

On trend grey painted wood


Your home working space should offer the same level of elegance, comfort and practicality as the rest of your home.  Painted in on-trend grey, we can see why this Chadwick twin pedestal desk has been a favourite buy with our customers.  Not only is the desk a beautiful colour, it also has stunning design detailing including a contrasting oak lacquer top and metal cup handles.  It's practical too with three stationary drawers, a drawer for foolscap filing, a cupboard storage and a pull out hidden keyboard drawer for extra working space.

Contemporary laptop desk

Urban Chic - a great home office furniture ideas

When creating your office space, why not pick a recycled wood laptop desk rather than a more traditional piece of home office furniture?  The Urban Chic desk will give your work space an industrial loft feel and  is very cleverly designed from reclaimed wood from Southern India.  The desk has a lift up lid for hidden storage and two drawers at either end which are finished with a metal cup handles.  It has an industrial feel, steel outer frame and is hand finished to accentuate the individual colour and character of the wood used in the desk.  Each piece from the Urban Chic range is a truly unique piece of furniture.

Oiled oak hideaway desk


More great home office furniture ideas - the contemporary option is the Olten hide away storage desk.   This cool piece of furniture appears at first glance to be a cupboard but a cleverly designed sliding top opens to reveal a generously proportioned work space and hidden storage space for a printer, modem or router. Designed by Andrei Leckos the desk is beautifully finished with grooved handles, soft close doors and is superbly built from high grade European oak veneers.  The desk is a mid oak colour which is produced by an oiled finish which protects the wood and highlight the unique, natural grain of the timber.

Perfect for small spaces


If you're short of space, why not turn a corner of the living room into a mini working space?  The Mayan Walnut hidden home office may be the perfect solution, as all your work paraphernalia can be stored away when you're not working behind two large doors.  The wood desk has an upper hinged drawer designed to hold the computer keyboard and versatile storage with plenty of adjustable shelves and spaces below.   It's made from solid walnut which has a dense grain to showcase the beautiful warmth and depth of the timber and finished with antiqued bronze handles.

More home office furniture ideas to help extend your workspace is to place the Mayan Walnut three drawer filing cabinet at the end of the hidden home office.  You'll gain extra storage and more clear surface space to work on.

Classic mahogany


A more traditional option for a home office is the La Roque mahogany single pedestal desk.  It's a practical design with plenty of storage, crafted from solid mahogany which is stained with a mid gloss lacquer to showcase the natural beauty of the wood and is strikingly finished with antiqued brass bow handles.  The desk has some clever design features including a pull out keyboard drawer, a cupboard door that slides back into itself and a secret pull out shelf hidden in the side of the desk.  The desk has pre-drilled cable holes at the back and has nylon feet to protect floors and carpets.


Clever use of space is key in any home office and to match the La Roque mahogany single pedestal desk, the narrow alcove bookcase is great storage solution - perfect for small, awkward spaces.  The bookcase has five adjustable shelves, a useful drawer at the base and is made using the same high grade mahogany and finish as the desk.
