A lack of space is one of the most exciting challenges to be faced when the idea of creating an office corner springs to mind. It’s up to us to push the boundaries of what is possible and imagine new uses for our apartment. Under a staircase, right in the middle of the lounge, in an entrance hall, built into a bookcase – everybody that The Socialite Family meets is always resourceful. No more preconceived ideas for them. An office corner can be original and elegant, even if it is improvised! Choose your chair with great care so that it fits in perfectly with your decor and is good for your health. It needs to fit the contours of your body, just like our Cavallo armchair does! It needs to stop your back and shoulders from aching due to hours of working from home in front of a screen. You need to choose something that isn’t too stiff and that is the right height, and try to pick a design that has armrests – which our Pio armchair has – so you maintain a good posture. If you want to sit at your dining table or another table you have dug up somewhere, you should pick something that fits with it. So that in addition to it becoming your new work companion, it really contributes something to your decor, so play – in total contradiction – with your office furniture! It will set the tone in the middle of the room, in a corner or against the wall, in the space of your choice. Choose it with elegant lines and fine legs, ideally in wood and metal so you can display your stuff neatly for once, and your prints or photographs. For anybody who is into multi-use furniture and System B, you can use a multipurpose item (small chest of drawers, modular furniture, trestles with a glass, wood or stone top, etc.) but also a shelf unit or an alcove that you already have in your home. If you are an interior designer at heart, think ahead when it comes to a custom layout, like Charlotte Vauvillier. Maybe a desk that retracts in the blink of an eye – so practical and invisible in an apartment! Finally, take care of the lighting. So that you don’t suffer from the light of your computer screen all day, and to ease eye strain thanks to a gentle and warm light source. A caress for your eyes, to be placed at different points around you for a wrap-around feeling. If you like to move around your home during the day, choose standard lamps or table lamps. And in that case, our Brera and Gioia models will delight you! Truly mobile pieces that move around with you, from the bedroom to the sitting room, these models are also lovely to look at during that precious quiet time when night is falling.
