Designer Kyle Schuneman sits in his masculine and industrial home office, filled with vintage finds like an old metal desk he scored on Craigslist and a showstopping sunburst mirror.
Don't be afraid to add personal mementos in your home office. Here, Kyle shows off a vintage cheerleader's bullhorn and cement pedestal.
Here's a modern home office for two that owes its impressive style to an abundance of clean lines, clear and opaque glass and tight (but light) palette.
No, we can't all be lucky enough to tuck our workstations into the eave of such a showstopper space. But we can borrow the big design takeaway here: When creating a modern dual-use office space, stick with furniture with similar finishes, lines and colors as those in the rest of the room.
The key modern design takeaways in this home office nook? An ultra-clean white backdrop for super-light and oh-so-dark wooden finishes on the shelves, tabletop, and flooring.
Even the artwork plays up the importance of angles in this contemporary home office.
Metal! Glass! White, white, white! This workstation owes its contemporary look to just a few key design elements.
A sawhorse desk is a simple starting point for creating a clean, contemporary-looking office. From there, add patterns, prints and colors you love, then bring in some burnished metal, as well.
A teeny work station gets big mid-century style by incorporating a classic leather and chrome office chair, a pop-inspired task lamp and wall decor straight out of the '60s.
What makes this office perch pop? An abundance of silver, white and orange, piled in equally prominent proportions. (That lucite table has our eye, as well.)
Here again, a mid-century office chair anchors a small home office in modern style. The set of reclaimed typesetter's drawers and funky knickknacks complete the vintage air.
We think unfinished wood furniture can make any space feel Scandinavian. This moderately sized work desk and ladder-back chair are no exception.
There's an institutional feel to the reclaimed metal desk in this super-narrow workspace—but that's what makes it so uniquely becoming. Consider an all-silver workspace (with a comfy pop-of-color chair) for your own contemporary home office.
Sure, bright white wainscoting could cast a country air on a home office. But paired with a tiled floor, pop artwork, and a modern custom table and chairs, this space feels more contemporary than country.
The thinking behind this creative computer armoire is ultra modern: Transform a freestanding closet into a computing station so that your work can get shut away once the workday is done.
This wall-mounted office setup features a modern mix of high-gloss red, white and deep brown. It's a contempo-cool color scheme for a sleek work space.
A modular storage unit, sleek work desk and tight palette of apple green, cream and light wood make this modern, lofty work space a winner.
A funky shelf configuration may be the focal point in this airy home office, but it's the juicy orange hues that push the space into super-modern territory.
