The Ultimate WFH Setup

We’re slowly but steadily progressing into a post-covid era. Businesses are re-opening and people are returning to the office. But that doesn’t mean we’re ready to just shake off the habits and routines we were forced to accept in 2020. While some of us are looking forward to getting back into the office, the rest of us have grown to love and enjoy the new normal. 

For those of you who’ve accepted your home’s new role as your workspace, this list is for you. While a work from home setup will never compete on the same level as a full-fledged office, we’re confident you can get close enough with the right products. At this point, you don’t need to be convinced you need a good work from home setup, but you do need some help picking the right products. Here’s the only checklist you need to get into your zone.

Cosm - An ergonomic chair that works for you

Cosm - An ergonomic chair that works for you

There’s no way a list like this is complete without mentioning the most fundamental of all work from home setups – the task chair. Sure, you may have worked around it in the past by using a simple stool or foldable chair. But if this is the new normal for you, it would be wise to invest in a great chair. And few brands make chairs as good as Herman Miller. You confidently invest in any Herman Miller chair knowing you’ve made the right investment. But the Cosm is a class apart. With its patented auto-harmonic tilt and flexible frame, it’s spa day every day for your back.

Steelcase Flex Height-Adjustable Desk - because one size doesn’t fit all

The saying sitting is the new smoking isn’t restricted to the office. Keep yourself active and focused with Steelcase’s Flex height-adjustable desk that is designed to move as quickly as the day’s activities. We love it for its unique leg design and fabric panels that fit in well with a residential aesthetic. You can also save your preferred height settings using their Rise App, which is designed to remind you to change postures and stay active!

Humanscale Quickstand - Ergonomics at its finest


Height adjustable desk not your style? No problem. Why not try a product that was voted the best office accessory of the decade in 2015? The Humanscale Quickstand quite literally raises the bar in the ergonomics accessories department. If you like your desk too much to change it but still want the option to stand and work, do it in style with Quickstand. Sleeker, easier to use and comprised of more sustainable materials than ever before, it’s a vast improvement over the current generation of sit/stand options. This worksurface is available in laptop, single or dual monitor configuration and features a simple setup and near effortless adjustability. 

NJP Table - Get the light right

NJP Table

There’s an incorrect assumption floating around that the ceiling lights at our homes are the right ones for our work from home setup. While they may do the job, they don’t do it well. What you need is task lighting to provide direct glare-free light that doesn’t strain your eyes. The NJP table does just that while reflecting some of the light through the rear of the head, illuminating the top of the arm. Its ergonomic design of the fixture head shapes the light and gives optimal light direction so you can focus on your work comfortably.

Wave Bookshelf - Organize in style

Wave Bookshelf - Organize in style

Keeping your sanity in check is an important component of working from home. One way to do this is to stay organized. And there’s no reason to stick to old filing cabinets and boxy storage units. We recommend the Wave bookshelf by True design. Consisting of wall shelves, free-standing modular bookcases and practical tea tables, level up the style quotient of your work from home setup with this fashionable bookshelf.

Agate Low - Add some warmth to your setup

You probably didn’t expect this one, but we think it belongs here. At the office, we have the luxury of carpeted floors. At home, it’s most likely tile or wood. This isn’t a bad thing, but you certainly deserve better. Which is why a beautiful, plush, tufted rough like Agate Low works so well. Not only doesn’t it look great, but adds a nice vibe in your room that helps you settle in and work in your best state.
