Working from home is a dream come true for many people. However, for some people, combining home decor with office decor can be difficult. Office decor tends to be formal, while home decor is often more comfortable. What many don’t realize is there’s a happy medium between the two styles. People who want to work at home and be comfortable there as well can do so with smart furniture choices. Here’s what you need to know. 

Accessorize with Bookshelves

Bookshelves like the Oxford bookcase have scholarly and intellectual associations in the office. In the living room, this same bookcase can become the perfect furniture for featuring pictures of loved ones and sentimental items. Purchase matching bookshelves for your living room and office, to bring both worlds together in your home. 

Buy Matching Lamps for Both Spaces

Lamps likewise are the perfect light source when staying up late at night to get some extra work done. Lamps also make the living room seem cozy and comfortable when it gets dark outside. Lamps like the Patience table lamp are perfectly suitable for home and office; buy lamps that look good in both settings. 

Create a Comfortable Sitting Area for Clients and Guests

Turn your living room into a comfortable place for clients and guests to sit by purchasing stylish, comfortable, but still upscale-looking furniture. For example, the Triptis blue and green accent chair is just fashionable and fun enough to be in a living room, but professional enough to be placed in a waiting area. Use a throw blanket to make your chair more comfortable at night and on weekends, but take the blanket off on weekdays when you’re expecting professional visitors.
