home office before and after

This before is technically after the first makeover I completed when we had built-ins installed all along the back wall. The white was fine, but I felt like it lacked personality and couldn’t help but imagine how amazing this space could be if I took it the opposite direction and really leaned into a moody, masculine office. And while we both loved the vintage executive desk, it was too large and bulky for the room.


I could look at that before and after all day!!!

My main goal when choosing furnishings for our home office was to blur the line between old and new. I wanted to blend pieces that looked like they had some history with those that are newer and more modern in style. I think we did just that.

Before & After Video Tour

Office Desk

The Melange Bennett X-Base Writing Desk is much more suited to the size of the room, and the open legs lighten the entire feel of the space. You’re no longer enclosed and can appreciate more of the built-ins. There is still plenty of storage with three large, deep drawers across the font. My favorite part about this desk is the leather inset and the distressing.

Executive Chair

My husband cannot say enough great things about this Wyatt Executive Swivel Tilt Chair. The channel tufted top-grain leather feels perfectly masculine and worn in. The color of the leather is so unique in a world that is used to seeing one shade of brown leather desk chair. And it’s not just pretty, it’s incredibly sturdy and comfortable.

Boucle Club Chair

Every piece of furniture I chose for this office was with my husband in mind except for this Bennet Swivel Club Chair. This chair was all for me. I have been wanting a chair with that gorgeous boucle fabric for some time now. The texture and feel is incredible. There are plenty of chairs to be found out there, but I needed something that was more compact without looking it. This club chair is the perfect size to tuck into this corner and still have plenty of room for the French door to completely open. The best part is that it swivels! This is the spot I come to when I want to chat with my husband during the day while he’s working.

Nesting Tables

When sourcing furniture for a space you usually start with the largest items like a desk. In this case, I saw these Commerce & Market Nesting Tables first and had to have them. My husband has a lot of pieces he has brought back with him from travels around the world. I wanted those items to be prominent in his office. These nesting tables are inspired by global design and were the perfect way to bridge his souvenirs with the furnishings. They remind me so much of handmade, antique pieces I would see at places like Round Top. Look at those pretty details!

Why Hooker Furniture

I chose to work with Hooker Furniture on this project because they have a large variety of updated modern styles that worked well with my home. I was able to curate our home office’s furniture from one store without settling for a matching set look.

Their newest line of furniture, Commerce & Market, is globally sourced, inspired from around the world, and was developed with interior designers in mind. This line includes vast materials, styles, and color palettes that appeals to decor conscious shoppers with homes of all styles and sizes.

Since the beginning of Hooker Furniture in 1925 to today, the company has been led by the same family where the focus is on stylish well-made furniture. I can certainly attest to that.
