Space and storage.

Space and storage

Finding space for a home workstation can be challenging. You might need room for multiple screens, a printer and any other essential accessories.

Need room for lots of equipment or multiple screens? Choose from our selection of wide office desks.

Working with limited space? Find a narrow workstation that’s the perfect fit for your home.

Corner desks are a great compromise between space saving and extra storage and desk space.

 Keep things neat and tidy with a storage desk. Perfect for keeping paperwork organised and out of the way.

Style and character office.

  • Go for something different with a metal or glass topped desk, offering sleek and sophisticated style.
  • Brighten up your home office with a desk that adds a pop of colour. Take a look at our pink, blue and red options, or choose something more traditional like blackwhite or grey.

Office chair guide

Comfort is the most important feature when choosing an office chair. If you’re going to be using it for work day-in day-out, you need a chair that is adjustable and supports a healthy posture. Check out some of our favourites below, or scroll down to read more about ergonomic furniture that supports you while you work.

Ergonomic office furniture

What is ergonomic furniture?

What is ergonomic furniture?

Ergonomic furniture is designed to provide comfort and support. They can help to reduce the risk of numerous health issues, such as arthritis, joint pain, musculoskeletal problems, and poor blood pressure, to name a few. Here are some of the key features that can help you sit comfortably:

  • Adjustable heights - allows you to customise furniture to make it comfortable for you, maintaining the correct posture by keeping your back straight and legs at the correct angle, as well as reducing the risk of joint pain and stiffness.
  • Fabrics that regulate temperature - helping to keep your body at a regular temperature.
  • 180 degree adjustable chair arms - to mimic your arm movement.
  • Keyboard and mouse supports - these support your wrists and help to reduce the risk of developing conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Ergonomic office chairs

Most office chairs have some level of adjustability – usually allowing you to change the height, tilt and arm rests.

These ergonomic features are ideal if you're sat at a desk for several hours a day. They provide a level of comfort and support that helps to reduce stress, therefore increasing productivity and efficiency.

Ergonomic office desks

An ergonomic office desk is one that allows you to remain comfortable whilst using it for longer periods of time.

This can also refer to sit-stand or standing desks, that help to alleviate the health risks you may encounter from prolonged sitting.

Having the right computer accessories can help to keep your hands and wrists comfortable whilst working for long periods of time. They can help reduce the risk of health issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome.

Other accessories, such as footrests under your desk, can also help to maintain an ideal posture to prevent any aches or pains.

Correct posture for sitting at a desk.

What’s the correct posture for sitting at a desk?

  • Your eyes should be level with the top of your computer monitor.
  • Your back and neck should not be bent or hunched.
  • Your shoulders should feel relaxed.
  • Your hips and knees should be at a 90° angle and feet firmly on the floor.
  • Your wrists shouldn’t be bent and your arms should sit on the armrests.

With an adjustable office chair you can change the width, height and tilt to suit your needs. As well as sitting in the correct position, it’s important to take regular breaks and move around, so you're sitting in an office chair for long periods of time.

You could even consider a standing desk, which allows you to work on your feet, as well as sitting down.
