Fine Furniture: Home Office Furniture

When considering fine furniture, particularly with respect to home office furniture, you are not thinking of small spaces with enough room for a table and a chair, and neither are you considering the cheap printed plastic-coated chipwood computer desks and screw-in legs. Fine furniture involves solid wood and carefully matched veneers, polished to a beautiful finish but with room for the modern paraphernalia of the modern office.

Think of oak, walnut, cherry and myrtle veneers, carefully applied to a solid wood base with the natural wood patterns carefully matched, mixing form and function with old world design meeting the needs of the new world office. Stylish, yet functional and practical, offering a beautifully matched blend of the old and the new, fine home office furniture offers an office of which you can be proud.

In the modern world, the home office is an essential part of the living space, but one where function tends to win over design when in fact there is no need for this competition. It is perfectly feasible to have a well designed home office with good leather furniture that is comfortable to sit on while carrying out your work. Your desk need not be a wobbly creation of plywood and spindly legs, but a work of art, crafted from solid hardwood with fine cherry veneers, set off with some classical decorative hardware.

Beautiful leather furniture is always in fashion, never looking out of place amidst any form of fine furniture, and a solid wood veneered desk would not look right without a lovely leather upholstered chair to go with it. You could also have a library system installed along one wall, configured to suit your needs, including space not only for books, but also for a modern sound system or entertainment center.

Your solid wood and veneered home office furniture can stand on a carpet of your choosing, or perhaps a wooden floor: not the thin laminates that many seem to use these days, but solid wood parquet blocks, put together just as you want them. If you are designing your home office with beautiful fine furniture then the furnishings and flooring should be of equal quality. In fact, many prefer their flooring to be parquet with a carpet square to reduce some of the noise that a wooden floor can cause, or even a carpet square with felt surround is popular with many people.

You also have your curtain fabrics to think of and the wall covering, and these too should suit the design of your home office furniture. You have a massive range of each to choose from, and among your accessories are different designs of clocks, wall art and lighting such as a chandelier, reading light and table decorations. Alternatively, modern spotlights would not look out of place.

When considering the design and layout of your home office furniture, it is generally advisable to have an expert come to your home and discuss it with you after seeing the space you have available. Experts can advise you on the best design of furniture to meet your personal needs regarding functionality, and also on the best type of lighting and soft furnishings. They will also be able to help with matching the wooden fine furniture with the wall and floor covering. Most good furniture stores will offer this service.

When considering fine furniture, particularly fine home office furniture and leather furniture, you have to consider the quality of the pieces and their price. Naturally you want the best quality you can get at the price your willing to pay, and you will likely be surprised at just how affordable many excellent designs are.

Before deciding on your home office furniture needs you should first take a note of the office equipment you have. Computer, printer, scanner and so on, telephone and perhaps filing cabinets. The filing cabinets can be veneered in wood similar to that used for the main furniture: the desk and book case or library units, for example. Printers and so on can be stored out of site and still remain functional, while you have a choice of telephone designs to suit the design of the office.

Your paperwork can be stored in a traditional wooden bureau or in desk drawers and cupboards that can also be used as small filing systems. In fact, all of your needs can be integrated into your home office furniture design and layout. Leather furniture, such as sofa and chairs, is available should you need it and you have a wide range of fine furniture suitable for use in a traditional style of home office which is far superior to the chipboard and plastic used in most modern offices.
