UB Spotlight: Back To School

For a lot of us, the end of summer brings us back to the reality of school or work. Whether you’re going back to class or work this fall or not, the at-home workspace has become crucial to almost every household. The formula for a successful workplace is: comfort, function, storage, and inspiration.

If you have a smaller space and prefer a modern look, try the Eternity desk with the Marquis office chair in either white or black leather. The desk and chair both have a sleek look that can be appreciated from any angle. Finish off the space with storage like the Brosna bookcase in black or white.


If you have a bit more space in your work area pair the Cross Chrome and Glass Desk with the Maverick Office Chair in either grey or white leather. The desk adds extra function with the second table that can be wheeled around on its castors and used in other rooms as a laptop table. Add storage with a shelving unit such as the Brosna or Biblioteca, and if you’re short on space, try floating shelves.


Make your workspace inspirational by adding accessories that speak to you; add a Laughing Buddha in your favourite colour to add energy to the space. Continue with other accessories such as the Read Bookends or the Storage Book Boxes for hiding away your midnight snacks. Decorate the walls around your desk with inspirational art, try a photo wall with different sized frames and prints that you find aesthetically pleasing and help you get your creative juices floating. Mix and match different frames and prints to create a photo wall that is unique and helps you feel motivated to get work done.
