Cosy Home Office Essentials 2021

I've never met an assistant who didn't love creating a beautiful, functional workspace. I myself recently moved into a new home and am most excited about styling my new office. Pictures coming, I promise!

Until then, here are my favourite home office essentials for a calm, beautiful and functional workspace.

The Desk

I need a clear desk space and favour a sleek, elegant vibe. I don't want desk storage or clutter. Just the essentials. These are my top picks for desks.

Coavas Folding Desk in Oak & White 


This gorgeous minimalist desk is perfect for small spaces and folds away easily if that's what you need. It's also available in range of colours. I'm willing to bet you can find one to suit your aesthetic. Get it now for £89.99.

Centurion Supports ADONIS Gloss Walnut and Matte Black Legs Ergonomic Luxury Desk

Going for more of a traditional and luxurious vibe? The ADONIS in walnut and black is stunning and goes with just about everything. Formal without being dated or too bulky, what's not to love? Yours for £249.99.

It's a little bit rustic and a little bit industrial. it has storage shelves and I think it's fabulous! It's also available in a range of sizes. Pop it in your office now for £109.43.

Coavas L-Shaped White and Glass Desk


White and glass and L-shaped, oh my! If you're in the market for a sleek, modern desk with lots of space but one that doesn't take over the entire room, this is it. Buy it now for £95.99.

I cannot tell you how much the Shakti Mat is saving my back, my sleep and my sanity. It might seem weird but all I can say is that it has been working for me and I freaking love it. You can get one right now here.

Sony Compact Waterproof Wireless Speaker £38.96

I bought this speaker for Jeremy for Christmas 2019 and it's probably the most used item in our house. Brilliant sound, sturdy af and sounds fanfreakingtastic! It's also a bloody bargain! Run don't walk.

 Did I mention my bad back? I've long been a fan of foam rollers and even kept one at my desk pre working from home. You need one in your life. Trust me. This one is brilliant.
