Creating a home office is a little different than decorating the rest of the home. Contemporary home office furniture offers wonderful looks in addition to a high degree of functionality. When designing the modern office, go for furniture with hard lines, neutral colors and lots of storage space to keep clutter out of sight. The contemporary style of decorating is all about sophisticated simplicity.
White, off white and black are ideal colors to choose in contemporary home office furniture. Keep the colors basic, without a lot of bright and bold. Add complexity to the design by mixing white, beige, black and grey. Begin by choosing the focal point of the office, the desk. Choose a simple style over more ornate selections and an angular design rather than curvy. Look for office desk styles by Phoenix and others.
In terms of comfort, nothing trumps the chair for important office furnishings. The office chair is the main element that makes office users comfortable using the office and helps them stay productive. Look for well padded chairs, chairs that swivel and rock, and features like adjustable height. In a modern office style, keep the chair the same color as the desk.

Next, it's important to have a good filing system. There are several types of filing cabinets to choose from. Some roll for easy access anywhere in the office. Lateral filing cabinets are also available. Storage for books, media, office supplies and other items is also critical. Credenzas and bookcases are great for easy access to these items. Bookcases come in small versions, ideal for using as a small table as well as shelf space, in addition to large shelves, ideal for big book collections and displaying photos and collectibles. Look for shelves and other storage options by Cambridge, Coventry and others.
