HOME OFFICE: PLACE FOR WORK AND REST
The office is a familiar, everyday word of French origin, despite some phonetic mystery, and in Russian lexical usage it means exactly the same as the French themselves mean, calling the cabinet a room for classes, work.
However, the concept of “office” is not ambiguous when it comes to office. Another thing is a home office. As part of the living space, it can be very versatile. In the view of some, the office and at home is, above all, a workplace. Others believe that the office is designed for confidential conversations and business conversations in an informal setting. Still others create coziness and comfort in it for privacy and relaxation. Fourth consider that the home office is necessarily a library. Well, fifths simply arrange a personal “kunstkamera” there, placing collections that are dear to the heart on the shelves of cabinets and display cases. The individuality of the owner is especially pronounced in the office.
By the presence of a computer, special literature, and other characteristic details, one can “calculate” the nature of his occupation by accurately determining who the banker or writer is? Items and accessories present in the decoration of the cabinet give an idea of his hobbies. For example, hunting, if there are collection guns in the windows, or sailing, when the yacht is on the desk. Easy to “read” in the office and the owner’s habits: smoking a pipe, thinking about life, lying on the ottoman. Well, in general, the cabinet’s atmosphere demonstrates the level of wealth and taste of its owner. Classical interior styling, expensive massive furniture reflect the solid conservatism of a wealthy person.
A modern, office-like interior of a home office indicates still emerging addictions. The arrangement of the cabinet, its furniture and design depend on what a person puts into this concept. If the owner works at the computer at home, then this is just the case when the office is furnished with comfortable office furniture: a convenient ergonomic chair and bookcases for books and papers are selected to a special computer table. But let’s talk about the office in a broader sense, because at home it is always multi-functional and diverse.
Firms specializing in the production and sale of cabinet furniture, distinguish between standard and non-standard configuration. The first includes a desk, a work chair, a sofa, bookcases. Various stylistics and design, the variety of materials used allow you to create a completely unique design. For example, glass countertops, stone, “antique”, underframes break the traditional idea of the image of the desk, making it the stylistic dominant of the home office. However, double-sided tables made of solid wood for many centuries remain the most stable addiction for home office owners. Reliable and sound, they serve several generations, becoming a family relic. Keeping the style of past eras, modern manufacturers of classical furniture for cabinets use the latest materials processing technologies and sophisticated mechanisms. And this further enhances its competitiveness. Reliable wealthy people most often prefer just such furniture, furnishing home cabinets.

It is certainly convenient to work at such a table, but it is no less valuable that it emphasizes the respectability of the owner much more eloquently than words.
Leather in a classic cabinet interior is traditional material. In addition to countertops, chairs and sofas are executed in leather. It’s already quite popular that the century style is Chesterfield, recognizable in a quilted in a special way upholstered leather furniture, ideal for an office. However, modern design trends and personal taste preferences of people determine the presence in the cabinets of sofas with various upholstery, including fabric. As well as a more pragmatic approach to the selection of models with different design and functionality. For example, in a properly furnished office you can see instead of the classic “Chester” an ottoman upholstered in faux suede (it’s immediately clear: the owner likes to retire in the office for reflection in a horizontal position), or a folding sofa, which indicates that they often spend the night here.
The construction and design of bookcases also determines the choice of the customer. They can be freestanding and built-in, with hinged or sliding doors (such as “coupe”), glass or deaf. Apparently, the standard set of furniture for the cabinet should also include a cabinet for video and audio equipment. By the way, it is in this subject that the traditions of classical design and modern technical finds are most optimally combined. For example, the doors of such cabinets, for which a television is hidden until time, if necessary, open and slide into the cabinet.
