26 of the world's most stunning home offices


13 October 2014

Even the most lazily prepared home offices have more character and warmth than the sun starved, lowest-common-denominator melamine clad shame cubicles so many of us inhabit for half of our conscious hours these days.

If you work from home, you get to choose where you sit. You also get to choose how you sit (...if you sit) and what you actually sit on. Given the amount of time you'll probably spend there, it's well worth taking advantage of that freedom to make your battlestation as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. A great home office or workspace is the kind of space you really can't wait to use..

Here are 26 incredible spaces to give you some inspiration:

Love the urban rooftop ... a place to get away when you want to get away from getting away!
