How to build 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

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.
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
