10 Great Desk & Chair Combos

Workspaces aren't always the prettiest parts of a home, so we appreciate a well-designed one all the more. It doesn't take much. At minimum, you need a good desk and chair, but that combination can be surprisingly hard to pull off. It's easy to slip into IKEA mode and buy the off-the-shelf set, or mix and match with weird-looking results. In case you need some inspiration, we've rounded up a few well-calculated formulas for chair/desk combos from our favorite home offices...

FIRST ROW
• DIY Desk + Arper Chairs from Tia and Mikko's Masterplan
• Florence Knoll Desk + Eames Executive Chair from Andreas' Greektown Loft
• IKEA Desk + Chair (later replaced with a Red Eames) from Kathryn's Tiny Home Office
• Elfa Workstation + Herman Miller Caper Chair from Melissa and Matt's Design Lab
• DIY Wall-mounted Desk + Eames Shell Chair from Corey, Gustavo, & Kyle's Home
