Sometimes it’s better to make a highlight of your filing cabinet than to pretend it’s not there or try to hide it. The fact is, we’ve all got important papers and records we need to store, and it takes space to do that. A bright color can be enough to make a filing cabinet a showpiece, and when it’s set against a wall that helps it shine, so much the better. This chalkboard backdrop is just what this orange filing cabinet needed to make it really pop. Home offices are all about work and getting things done, so they are well suited to an industrial look. Find a metallic or rustic black filing cabinet and you’re one step closer to creating a workspace with this kind of edge. Next steps? A chair and desk that sing along with it. Think leather, aged wood and function over form. A filing system with multiple drawers removes the need for your files to hang vertically, and can be far less imposing in a home office. When it looks as good as this filing cabinet, there’s no reason not to make a change.
This allows you to make notes for yourself if you need to give something to write on at a moment’s notice. Small pieces are also helpful if you need to record something you need to do at a later time. Folders can also help to keep the area organized. Although the room where the desk is lit by an overhead light fixture, holding a small desk lamp on the desktop gives you additional lighting. Depending on the design of your modern desks for home, an overhead light fixture cast shadows on the desk, especially if you sit between the light and you’re desktop. A desk lamp illuminates the shadows and gives you the right lighting to complete your desktop activities. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to work from home, you know how influential your home office furniture can be with regard to your productivity. The desk, in particular, plays a critical role in any office space, particularly one at home.
This chair also gets high praise for its passive pelvic support that helps you maintain corrrect spinal alignment. This simple pad helps you maintain the natural curvature at the small of your back to make lower back pain a thing of the past. If you prefer to recline, an optional headrest is available. While the chair’s main selling features are its passive pelvic support and ability to adjust the lumbar for the left and right side of the back independently, you also have the standard chair adjustments. This includes adjusting tilt, arm rest width and height, seat height, and tension. This video gives you a full introduction to the Zody chair.
