how to choose office furniture for your home
Whether you're running your own business or living the corporate work-from-home dream, it's never been easier to choose office furniture for your home that perfectly suits your style and your space. Our modular home office collections make it easy to transform that new addition, that remodeled basement, that compact corner of your living room—wherever you’re trying to make work from home work harder for you.
PICK A HOME OFFICE FURNITURE STYLE
Start with the design that speaks to your spirit (we'll save the business part for later!). Every piece of Ethan Allen office furniture for your home is designed exclusively by us, and we craft most of it by hand in our North American workshops.
Continental offers a modern take on Gustavian style; it's a clean, crisp, and formal-leaning look for the executive or executive-to-be.
Built in the rugged simplicity of British campaign style, Callum has the power to take you back in time and still look elegant in a modern space.
For anyone whose personal brand says “attention to detail.” Faraday Classic is made from Indonesian mahogany and metal, finished in chic Satin Gold.
Decide on a Desk
Leave your dining room table behind and reward yourself with a desk; it’s the heart of any office furniture setup. Choosing the right size and functionality for your needs is your first order of business.
Finished on all sides, our freestanding executive desks can be placed almost anywhere, including along the wall or at in the center of your room. Choose an open base for legroom or a pedestal desk with drawers for storage.

at a 90° angle and is an excellent option for adding work and meeting space.

Maximizes corner space and frees up the center of your room for additional home office furniture. It’s also a perfect fit for youth bedrooms as a homework or craft area.
Settle on your Storage
Paperwork, printers, office supplies, oh my! Choose the mix of wood- or glass-door cabinets, filing cabinets, drawers, and shelves that will help you store it all away. Our upper and lower storage cabinet options, in a variety of widths, will accommodate any space, large or small.
