Working in a home office is a challenge. Sticking a desk in the guest room is not a good idea let alone an ideal one. A home office is where you work from – it is your work space and place of employment. To be productive a home office needs proper work areas with good illumination. Writers, illustrators, computer code writers, and scores more of professionals work from home, at least part of the time.
Where you Work & How You Light are Key to Productivity
Table or Desk
A key part of a stylish, productive office is a sensible desk. If you have gone totally digital check out a minimalist desk with room for your laptop and mug. On the other hand, if you like to spread out and have piles on your desk, you need a desk large enough to accommodate your work style.
Proper lighting is essential to a productive home office. A standing lamp is an excellent choice as it takes up no desk space and positioned for optimal lighting. For those looking for some inspiration (and most of us do) Serge Mouille standing lamps serve well. Mouille (1922 to 1988) studied with the sculptor and silversmith Gilbert LaCroix. Serge Mouille earned a master silversmith diploma from the noted Paris School of Applied Arts where he later taught. While teaching he also opened his own studio for metalworking.
In his studio he designed and handmade chandeliers. handrails, and wall sconces. In 1953 Jarque Adnet hired him to design exceptional lighting. After his death, his widow decided to license his designs so other could enjoy the ownership of his standing lamp.
