How to design a home office you love

If you’re going to devote your valuable time at home working, you should spend that time in a space that brings out the best in you—a home office that makes you come alive, feel good in your body, and do your most inspired work. 

 1. Let’s start with your desk


If you want to change your experience of work, one of the single best things you can do, without exception, is invest in an adjustable height standing desk. No matter the size of your space or budget, we can help you find your perfect desk.

2. Next: which active chair is right for you?


Better health and energy at work doesn’t mean standing all day—the true key to feeling your best is movement. By listening to your body, and switching positions from standing, to supported standing, to sitting, you keep your body aligned and engaged, and your energy flowing. If you’re new to active sitting, here’s a guide to help you find the perfect active chair for you.

Our most popular, from task chair to portable perch

For Standing Desks

Sit, stand, lean, stretch—the more you move, the better you feel. Take a look at our favorite active sitting chairs, from saddle seats to perching stools to chairs that sit a little higher than a traditional task chair.

For Traditional Desks

Whether you’re sitting at a lowered adjustable-height desk or a fixed-height work surface, these office chairs are designed to encourage healthy, energy-bringing movement.

For Kneelers

Refresh of the famed 1979 “Balans” kneeling chair, these modern kneelers are designed to relieve back tension by opening the hips and engaging your core.

For Small Spaces

The most take-with-able and hide-away-able of our active sitting chairs, each one engages the legs and core for a healthier posture and happier back.
