Reimagining your home is one of the great pleasures of decorating your space.
All rooms offer fresh possibilities, limited only by square metres and that strange window placed at an odd height that refuses to cooperate.
But once everything has been moved in and settled, a surprising source of happiness might be looking at furniture in your house and seeing it anew.
A rug can be a beautiful wall hanging, a foot stool could be a side table, and a dining table could make for an elegant, sturdy office table. Here weâ€™ve gathered some of our favourite examples of how to make this work in your home, along with some table recommendations…
A sturdy oak table is a great foundation to plan your home office around. The table adds a lovely rustic touch, which you can dress up with shades of cream and white, modern chairs and even metallic accents.
If your tastes run in a more classic direction, a table with ornate leg details might do the trick – elegant, without going over the top.
Contrast a clean and simple dark wood table with a light, airy room for some gravitas, while still having a room that will give you space to think and create.
On the other hand, a white table is a great sophisticated option to throw some light against a darker background, creating an expansive feel as well as a calming mood- especially handy if youâ€™re working with smaller spaces.
Glass and chrome
A chrome and glass table immediately creates the look and feel of a modern office – but for your home, soften it up with warm wooden tones for a cosier, more welcoming atmosphere.
They say youâ€™ve got to act rich to get rich – and a marble table in your home office might just be the very epitome of that. Luxurious, classic and perhaps a little unexpected, this look is perfect if youâ€™ve always enjoyed having a little flourish in your day.
