Your office should resemble you. The choice of desk should set the tone. It should have elegant lines and a finely worked base to add a refined touch to the décor. Ideally, it should be in wood and metal. Next, it must be accessorised with a functional chair or armchair. Whether the seat is vintage or contemporary, it should have oomph and be at odds with the style of the desk to make for an appealing contrast. Then comes the mix with storage furniture that is more sober but still combines beauty and utility. Don’t stint on items such as a 1970s table lamp, modern lithographs and an African sculpture to show that you are a collector.
