Furniture for a Mod Home Office
Flexibility is important to today’s work culture now more than ever, and this applies to your office furniture as much as your work. Kasala curates their furniture offerings with flexibility in mind.
With the BDI Centro 6451-2 Lift Desk, you can change your stance from sitting to standing as you need.
Maybe when you first started working from home, the cheap chair was ok, but after a while, your body will really thank you for using a more ergonomic option designed for versatility like the BDI Voca Office Chair-3501.
The sleek profile of the BDI Eileen Bookshelf is both functional and artful. And there’s room to grow—put a second or third against each other for versatile storage space.
Keep the clutter out of sight with the sleek, linear profile of the BDI Corridor Credenza. File away papers and paperclips and/or the scotch too.
Some days you just need to change it up and work from your favorite chair or couch. For the nomadic workers out there, you’ll want one of these handy BDI Milo Tables, available in white, black, or yellow.
Mod Home Office Decor
Offices, especially home offices, don’t have to be sterile spaces. Warm it up with some funky and fun touches like this vintage Sputnik candle holder.
Another warm and vintage mod touch for your home office (or any room really), this walnut 1950s coat rack says “Let’s get to work” with its sleek lines and Mad Men vibes.
This Drop Table Lamp exudes not only light but an elegant, sculptural profile.
Made of cherry wood and sporting a fun oblong shape, this mid century floating shelf is perfect for adding some personality to your home office walls.
To add some literal warmth and texture to your office (and to make sure you don’t go flying off your rolling chair if your home office is on a hard surface), a 5 x 8 Terra rug [https://www.kasala.com/catalog/product/rugs/terra-rug-5-x-8/] in warm earth tones and abstract texture is just enough cozy up the space without cluttering it.
This vintage 1950s George Nelson ball clock exudes mid mod charm with its simultaneously playful and minimalist design.
Work doesn’t have to be drab, and neither does your office. Add a touch of earthy boho vibes with this monochromatic Dip Dye Large Macrame hanging.
Add to the versatility of your work space with an ergonomic laptop stand designed to help your posture as you work at your standing desk.
Greenery livens up any space, especially when they’re housed in planters that are objects d’art in and of themselves like this earthy ceramic planter perfect for succulents.
Get Organized in Mid Mod Style
So much is digital these days, but some things just require pen and paper. If you just need to jot down a few notes during your video call or scribble down thoughts and action items, having a notebook handy is super helpful. And with a fun 70s retro design, the Farida 70s vintage style notebook is also a decor item when closed.
Sticky notes are another helpful tool for the ephemera of notes and reminders that you don’t want to ding at you. The good news is with the Monolike Color Palette Sticky Grid notes, you don’t have to be stuck with the same fluorescent colors.
What to do with all the little scraps of paper and bills you still get through snail mail? Use a vintage teak letter holder, of course!
