Creating Your Ideal Home Office

HW Home office desk

Whether you work from home, regularly telecommute, or just need a place to occasionally extend your workday, we at HW Home understand. We can assist you in designing a creative, comfortable, and stylish space where you can focus on setting and meeting your goals for you and your family. No one-size-fits-all design will work for every customer, and that’s why HW Home offers a wide range of options, from a busy staging area for bill paying, to homework stations, to a cozy, cerebral study devoted to quiet concentration. Wherever you and your needs may fall on this spectrum, HW Home has you covered.

For example, a business-focused home office demands organization and simplicity. The mid-century inspired Chauncey Desk is a perfect piece of furniture to build around with its broad work surface and built-in file drawers. Choose a couple of simple but stunning shelves like the Copenhagen Etagere to pair against one wall, perhaps separated by a piece of signature art such as the Bicycle on Frame, and you’ll  have a room that shows off a bit of levity within its purposeful design.

On the other hand, maybe what you’re looking for is a family workspace for both parents and kids to use independently or together. The sleek lines of the Crawford Desk are aesthetically pleasing, while allowing for visual elbow room in a shared space. Think about pairing two of these desks back-to-back: the kids studying across from a parent working from home is not only efficient, but a good way to make sure that homework gets done! Continue the campaign-furniture look with a gorgeous and functional Officer’s Chest of 9 Drawers, where paper goods, pens and pencils, and the kids’ paraphernalia can be tucked away out of sight. By selecting unique finishing pieces like the Mayfield Sculpture and statement lighting such as the Brigitte Tripod Table Lamps, your family office will be a space where everyone wants to work.

Perhaps you’ve always wanted a cozy study for writing or another artistic endeavorthe sort of room that used to demand a long-stem pipe and long, pensive hours. Consider the Vintage Patina Desk, a gorgeous throwback to an earlier age with mahogany veneers and a tobacco-and-molasses finish. Include a few Elon Bookcases to serve the interests of both beauty and function—and don’t forget one with the optional ladders for that expansive, old-world library feel. Finish the warmth of the room with Carlo Table Lamps in Bronze and a Verdigris Pug Dog for that head-tilt of character. You’ll have a room that’s not only thoughtful and productive, but serene and beautifully designed.

HW Home would be pleased to help you create the home office that meets the needs of both your family and career. Every home office has the potential to be an inviting and satisfying room, and the furnishings offered by HW Home are varied enough to suit any situation. Allow us to help design that special workspace in your home where you can get down to the business of your life—in style.

Stylize Your Home Office with HW Home

With the school year fast approaching, it’s time for home offices to start transitioning from vacation casual back to work mode. HW Home can help make that process beautiful and seamless—even inviting. We have an endless supply of unique accessories and timeless furniture to once again create a space that inspires creativity, supports efficiency, and helps you strike that work-life balance. Let us show you how simple it is to carve out a place and get down to work in style.

So let’s start with the basics; the desk is often the focal point of the room, and because we understand that family life is busy and challenging, we carry pieces with organization and ease in mind. Our Vintage Patina desk is sophisticated, sturdy, and has plenty of storage space for those important documents. But what’s a beautiful desk without a comfy chair? You can’t get more elegant than our classic Koffi Leather Chair; it’s not only functional, but adds a touch of elegance.

HW Home furnishings provide beauty in the intricate details. Our designers work diligently to fit every space in your home with just the right piece of furniture or decor. And no home office is complete without proper lighting. You can’t work if you can’t see! Our array of home office lighting and floor lamps will supply your work space with the just the right mood lighting for inspiration and concentration.   

A key element of home office organization is space-saving hutches and chests. With our Officer’s Chest you’ll have plenty of room for your important documents and even an electronic docking station. Or, for a homework nook created especially for kids, this spacious chest has plenty of room to file away the little one’s art, assignments, and workbooks to keep clutter at bay.

When setting up a space that is unique to you and your workflow, personal touches can make a huge difference. Display family photos or artwork on the walls. Artfully arrange antique vases. The creative options are endless! And for more “traditional” bookshelves, cradle your first edition publications between these petrified wood bookends. It’s the gentle, creative touches that give every room a sense of your personal style.    

Kids need a space for hard work, too! Encourage them to define an area for homework, whether it is a unique space or a shared one inside the home office. Doing this is a wonderful way to encourage strong study habits. Allow your children to hang their artwork on the wall, display their stellar grades, and provide them with their own storage space. This is easy to do when you set up a Quinn Nesting Table and Calder Stool next to your desk. The kids will love being close to you and also they’ll be inspired to get their homework done by watching you complete yours! A kid-friendly study environment is good for the whole family.

The transition from summer to fall can be challenging, but if you make your home office space one that encourages family, organization, and style, the move will prove to be far easier.

Meet Beverly, Senior Design Consultant

HW Home Girls cycling team

If you’ve ever visited one of our stores, you’ve probably had a friendly chat about sectionals, throw pillows, or overall interior design with our talented team members. Everyone at HW Home strives to bring something special to your shopping experience.

Meet another one of our remarkable team members, Bev, who has been with HW Home since the inception of the company. You may know her as the longtime Senior Design Consultant from our Boulder store, or as the sister of HW Home President and Co-founder, Ron Werner. Bev’s story of becoming part of Team HW Home is also the story of how HW Home came to be!

It goes something like this: “In 1998, my brother Ron and his partner Jim visited my husband and me. They planned to help us design our recent home remodel and search for new furniture. As we shopped, they were both shocked that there were very few options for finding stylish, unique, and quality pieces. They told us not to buy anything yet, and to give them some time to think. A few months later they called to say they were moving to Boulder from Chicago, opening a “little” shop, and that they wanted to bring me into the business and teach me about design. The rest is history!”

Working for the same family-owned company for the last 17 years is sure to create  special memories. Bev’s favorite is “when we first opened the doors in Boulder in June 1999, the community was so excited! They were blown away at how beautiful the store was.” And, we’re pleased to report that, as we’ve grown, the reception for our Cherry Creek and Greenwood Village stores has been equally warm.

Wanting to give our readers a few “insider secrets,” Bev says her favorite piece of furniture currently on the showroom floor is our Kika Cocktail Table in the White Milpa Wood Finish. She notes, “At the moment, I’m in love! It’s truly stunning!” If she could custom design any piece of furniture, it would be the perfect buffet for her dining room. She says, “My husband and I just scaled down and moved after 18 years into a much smaller home. I had a difficult time finding the perfect buffet that would fit into the space, look stunning, and provide the functionality that I need for storage.”

And as for enjoying life outside of work? Bev loves caring for her 10-month-old granddaughter Ella, running marathons, and cycling on the HW Home Girls’ Cycling Team in support of Children’s Hospital Colorado!
