Our homes are no longer just homes. More people than ever are embracing remote working and freelancing, meaning homes are spaces where we both live and work (and, we hope, play a bit). For those of us in smaller spaces, these historically separate activities might now take place in the same room. While combining living and working like this has its advantages, the best way to maximise your time and enjoyment of both is to create a space as stylish as it is functional.
A great office starts with a great chair, and Herman Miller has set the standard for decades, working with legends such as Charles and Ray Eames and Isamu Noguchi as well as more modern names like Naoto Fukasawa. If you’re after a chair that means business and still looks the goods, the uber-modern, ergonomic Sayl Chair by Yves Béhar is a strong choice. If you’d like something that blends living and working a bit more, the iconic series of Eames moulded chairs might be a better fit (the rocking chair is a great choice for inspired evenings).
