When decorating my own office, I turned to my Office Space Pinterest board for inspiration. I knew I wanted something modern but with classic items that will last through the years. Here are two office spaces — one modern, one classic. I could see myself in both! What about you? You can get the look from each space all with items I've found for you on Lamps Plus!
The Classic Office
I love the black furniture and bamboo accents in this office space designed by Christina Murphy Interiors. The items as classic, but not in the way that seems old. The black gourd lamp can be taken from room to room and never go out of style. I love having a regular lamp in an office, makes it feel more like home.
The Staples: Use a turquoise gourd lamp to get a punch of color on top of a black table with a clear yet classic chair.
The Accessories: Zebra vases and a beautiful work of art accent the room, and a gray rug will give you a good base for the space.
The Modern Office
This modern office by Jenny Wolf Interiors is right up my alley; dark walls, a white desk, and eclectic accents. The red accents warm up the contrast between the dark and light. This office also has one of my favorite lamp — a brass pharmacy desk lamp.
The Staples: A modern white desk will stay with you for years, add a white chair and you have the perfect "blank canvas" to add lighting and accessories. A personal favorite — the brass pharmacy desk lamp — makes the space feel established and not overly modern.
The Accessories: The red vase adds a bold pop of color, and the wood sculpture and ikat pillow make it feel collected.
There you have it, two office decorating ideas-Modern & Classic.
