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.

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.

executive desks

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.

Extends into your room from a wall or storage system
at a 90° angle and is an excellent option for adding work and meeting space.

bridge desk

Provides extra workspace when paired with our peninsula desk. Alone, it’s a space-saving desk for smaller rooms. As its name implies, it’s placed as a “bridge” between two structures, like cabinets.

corner desk

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.
