Studio Chair

chiasso_studio_office_chair.jpgWe've long wanted to add the Eames Management Chair to our own home office, but at $1200 it's a bit steep for our budget.

Chiasso's new Studio Chair has very similar lines to the Eames original, yet costs only a quarter of the price. Available in black or white leather-grain vinyl.

PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier

2007_08_powersquid.jpgTraditional power strips don't play well with all of the large transformer plugs that so many gadgets and computer components require. Rather than wasting outlets because they are hidden beneath black boxes, the PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier's flexible outlets ensure all are usable. Because who wants three power strips cluttering up the floor under their sleek minimalist desk?

Loop Desk

2007_07_CB_loopdesk.jpgAll too often, our living room or bed room pulls double duty as our home office, too. Thanks to Crate & Barrel though, that doesn't mean having to settle for two different looks in the same room. Their new Loop Desk looks great by itself, but an added bonus for those with multi-function rooms is how well it plays with C&B's Loop bedroom collection line as well as their media collection. The Loop collection also includes additional office-specific pieces such as the Loop File and Loop File with Hutch.

Builtby Lamps

Just because lighting is modern doesn't mean it can't be full of fun color. The Builtby Lamps from Inhabit come in a number of colors and patterns (this one's our favorite) sure to make a bold statement on your desk. Even cooler, they can be reconfigured in any way when you want to change things up. (Via Uncrate)

Thonet S 845 Desk Chair

We came across this gorgeous chair today from German chair manufacturer Thonet, and it should hopefully be available through their exclusive distributor ICF Source sometime soon. The S 845 DRE has wood sides that warm up this very sleek design, allowing it to fit a variety of styles. The line also includes sidechairs, dining chairs and a lounge chair with ottoman that's the best looking chair for a den since Eames.
