I have a small space carved out in the corner of my kitchen for the purpose of working from home. Its functionality, organizational aspects and overall aesthetic definitely leave something to be desired. That being said, my husband and I both greatly enjoy home design. We’re always looking for the next great piece of furniture to up-cycle and have several things stored for the purpose of someday stripping and dipping, reupholstering or making our own.
I couldn’t have been more excited to get a bit of office-design inspiration from REAL SIMPLE and Staples at their recent Style Your Space event at the gorgeous Gary’s loft Penthouse in Midtown Manhattan. Several home-office configurations were showcased, highlighting sleek storage and furnishings to maximize office space. I was naturally drawn to the compact “city” space featuring Staple’s clean, lucite chair similar to Kartell’s Louis Ghost Chair – but with an affordable price tag.
I’ve also had the chance to test out Staple’s Space-Saver 10 Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder in my own home, and I’m glad that it has been able to handle my special shredding technique (I tend to over-feed shredders to the point of breaking!). In a world where credit card and identity theft are prevalent (I’ve been there), destroying identifying documents is important to my family. Thankfully, Staples revolutionized the shredder aesthetic by eliminating bulk with a sleek profile that can easily tuck under a desk.
