Invest in a new desk
Seeing as it's perhaps the most utilized piece in the room, it's important to find a desk that's just as functional as it is fabulous. Fortunately, Madegoods provides a wealth of options, plus the ability to add a finish to the desk of your choice. Trust us, the sheer variety of their desk catalog alone will lead to some tough debates. But luckily, there are no wrong choices.
Step up your seating game
No matter the desk you're behind, it's important that you're sitting pretty! For chic yet comfortable choices, look no further than our friends at Bungalow 5. Their impressive assortment of arm, side, and occasional chairs will give you plenty to peruse and choose from.
Accessorize with A+ pieces
If your current desk and chair setup are already to your liking, or if you're not looking to splurge on furniture, there are still plenty of ways to spiff up the space with statement accents + accessories. And, you can never go wrong with an antique piece from Jan Showers. Their collection of lamps, bowls, vases, and more is truly a veritable treasure trove.
Re-style shelves + built-in displays

An especially chic way to execute would be with a Schumacher wallcovering, seeing as their assortment of patterns, prints, and finishes are pretty much unrivaled.
Channel your inner Marie Kondo
Last but certainly not least, do as Marie Kondo does and spark joy by simply decluttering and re-organizing. There's truly no better time than now to sort through those drawers + files and toss what you don’t need. Or better yet, say sayonara to paper trails altogether and take the plunge to digitize all your documents. The best part? Doing so will cost you nothing but will drastically improve everything.
