Where to outfit your home office
Alright, so you’ve likely already been working from home for most of the year if you’re new to the work-from-home routine due to the pandemic. But have you really taken the time to set up a proper home office yet? Sitting at the kitchen table is OK… but a desk would be better, right?
Luckily, there are many stores in Spokane County ready to help you find everything you need to make that home office feel like a workspace, whether that’s by dedicating a corner in your living room for a desk or decorating an entirely separate room. From bookshelves and filing cabinets to desks, office chairs and yes, decorations, keep an eye out for unique finds at these local stores. It might just make that commute from the breakfast table to the home office a little more enjoyable.

With staff who are ready to help you work within your budget and find what you need, from a desk to the decor you want around it, their interior designers and stylists can help you find just the right thing. You can make an appointment online and even start designing your room on their website. 1727 E. Sprague Ave., tinrooffurniture.com, 535-1111
O’BRIEN USED FURNITURE
Providing a variety of used furniture in good shape, with deals changing regularly, O’Brien Used Furniture might not have the exact model you found online, but you could fall in love with something you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

COMPLETE SUITE FURNITURE AND MATTRESS
For rugs and wall art, look at the selection at Complete Suite’s Spokane Valley location, or on the regional company’s website. They offer affordable rug options, from geometric patterns to that warm faux sheep/animal skin rug you maybe always dreamed of having in front of your home office fireplace (you clearly have a dark, massive home library in this daydream). Or, for the windowless home office, try finding a nice ocean or forest view from the store’s wall art collection to keep the winter blues at bay. 11410 E.
