As COVID-19 forced many of us to work from home—some for the very first time—we quickly got innovative. Working from the sofa or bed, however, is not a long-term solution. It can also get very uncomfortable, very quickly. Previously, we’ve gone over tech tips for remote work and the physical setup for an efficient workspace. Now we are breaking down the four home office furniture types to consider in creating a lasting space (that is also good for your back!)

Proper ergonomic design is key for your body AND your mind. While an online search for cheap office furniture will yield many affordable options, few will last longer than a few months and will not support you adequately.
