A West-Coast born company, Corral creates exceptional furniture and accessories for both the home and office. Blending beauty, utility and craft, these products are tried and true, with aesthetics and functionality that stand the test of time. They also happen to be stellar partners to work with for custom furniture pieces. Get your ergonomic game up to par with their Bent Ply Laptop stand or cozy up on the couch with your laptop on their beautiful Cobra table.
Most Modest reigns as one of our go-tos when looking for modern and good-looking power solutions. The Niko power strip is one of our favorites, a solid wood hexagon-shaped block that puts our plastic, tangled cords in the corner to shame. With multiple color options for the extension cord and an optional stand, this product is both functional and elegant.
Time to get comfy! We highly recommend all of Hem’s products – furniture, lighting, and accessories – for the home, office, or home office. But their ultra-soft and fuzzy throws (with cool prints designed by textile artists and fashion designers) take the cake in the work-from-home-warmth arena. These hefty, luxe, lambswool blankets are made using traditional weaving techniques and are perfect for snuggling up on the couch or throwing over your lap at your desk.
Carrying artist-designed goods from around the world, Slowdown Studio has a wide variety of products, all interesting, unique, and fun in their designs. Though it’s not exactly products for the office, we find their blankets incredibly useful. Woven with American-grown cotton, each throw is designed by a different artist and can double as hanging wall art. We also see some of their puzzles and DIY craft kits in our future.
Easy Tiger Goods

From a lucite stapler to stacks of colored sticky notes that feel almost architectural, each piece is thoughtfully designed and selected.

Navigating through Poketo’s website will surely bring you joy. Aside from cute and brightly colored stationary, it also carries a wide variety of home goods, including beautifully crafted ceramic mugs and plates, confetti-colored reusable straws, and a ton of other fun stuff. We’re big fans of their planners and aspire to one day have our WFH stations outfitted with the Azio leather mouse and LED-lit keyboard, which are uniquely made of wood and leather.

We are big fans of Areaware’s bold, contemporary designs. Who would’ve thought office accessories could make a statement? Desk tools that we have come to accept as mundane, such as tape dispensers and pen holders, are reimagined in new materials like concrete. Aside from office accessories, Areaware carries some of our other isolation favorites such as the Totem and Goober candles.
Wallpaper Store not only has a huge variety of products but scalability in prices. It carries products from dozens of companies, including trusted brands such as Vitra, Artek, and Hay. From desktop organizers and catch-alls, to paper weights, scissors, and pens, Wallpaper Store has virtually everything you need for work from home accessories.
San Francisco-based Pablo Designs has been designing beautiful lighting locally since 1993. Desk lamps with USB and wireless charging options, such as the Pixo and Link, are especially useful for home offices. A plus: many of Pablo’s pieces are made of recyclable materials and are built to last (some for up to 25 years with daily use). Our personal favorite, the Pablo Uma Sound Lantern (+ the Uma Mini), is a portable, dimmable, Bluetooth-powered speaker. We’ve found it very useful while working from home, moving from kitchen to home office, and also as a great addition to outdoor dining or camping.
Normann Copenhagen is quintessentially Danish. They make furniture, lighting and accessories that are expertly designed, beautiful, functional, and that stand the test of time. Decluttering your space is made easy with their simply designed organizers, which come in a variety of colors. Selections of table lamps and wall clocks can add both function and visual interest to a workspace. And while they may not be totally necessary to your WFH set-up, we absolutely love Normann Copenhagen’s vases. With all this time we’re spending inside, there’s no harm in treating yourself to a beautiful bouquet ever so often.
