If you think you don’t have room for an office, think again. With so many of us working from home, it’s important to create a workspace that divides the two. This example is a creative, functional office ideal for the minimal loving homeworker. It is small, but does the job.

Another brand satisfying our appetite for Scandinavian design is Norwegian design duo Morten & Jonas. This striking lounge table, coined Treet has a multifunctional tabletop that consists of three trays made of solid oak that have been either colour stained or smoked. The green-coated metal frame holds the trays in place, creating a fragmented and modern tabletop.

Storage: Floor to ceiling cupboards

58b5b3a79f84b269da209630b0c2a0be

If you found a property with fine architectural detail count yourself lucky. Those who didn’t may want to take inspiration from this classic storage solution which works well in both a modern and traditional context. Why not hire a joiner and build floor to ceiling storage? The invisible Kitchen by i29 interior architects is a brilliant example of the style without glass. Custom made carpentry won’t come cheap, but the look is timeless.
