For a contemporary home office, try a crisp black toile paired with sleek black furniture. If you're working in a small space, try a fold-away desk or armoir to house your computer, books and other important documents. This vignette from would not only work for an office tucked away in a separate room, but would fit nicely into a living or den area.
