Direct-to-Consumer Office Furniture: The Best Home Office Desks, Chairs, and Accessories

Work From Home Desk
Finding the right home office desk, chair and accessories — whether you’re setting it up in the bedroom, corner of the living room, or dedicated office space — can be difficult, especially if you’re looking for affordable options. So to help, we’ve curated some of the best options available online today. 

When you first start working from home, it’s easy to fall into the habit of working from your dining table – or worse, your sofa or bed. But creating an ergonomically correct home office setup has a wealth of stress-reducing, productivity-increasing benefits. 

All of the products listed below come from direct-to-consumer brands. By selling directly to consumers rather than through third-party retailers (who take a cut of profits, and add costs to consumers), these brands can produce higher quality goods and pass savings onto consumers like you and I. 

Direct-to-Consumer Home Office Desks

Branch was founded in 2018 with a goal to make high-quality office furniture accessible to everyone.

The Branch Office Desk is one of our favorites. Its design is minimal features flared legs, height-adjustable feet, and a brushed cable port. The desk also comes with a choice of a white or woodgrain top and polished or powder white legs. The desk’s steel frame and anodized legs and built to support up to 650 pounds of weight and it’s backed by the Branch Warranty for ten years.
