7 Desk Fixtures to Make Work-from-Home More Productive


When you have the luxury of working from your home, it’s a must to have a spacious and organized desk to get the job done. And just like any work station, certain elements can make or break your productivity.

If your home desk is in a constant state of disarray, then it’s probably time for you to change it up. You don’t want to miss that deadline just because you can’t find a certain document or can’t sit still. So here are some items you can keep on your desk while working.


First things first, you need a handy desk lamp like Pottery Barn’s Acrylic Cube Table Lamp (P6,446) so you can see things clearly even when the rooms gets dark.

Next, you need to organize your schedule. This artsy desk planner from Rifle Paper Co. (P878) is just what you need to pen down your tasks for the whole month.


You also need a place to put your pens and other materials in. The S.C. Vizcarra Mini Desk Organizer (P950) is the right size to put on your desk, and its many pockets will make sure you won’t lose anything.

For a sleek and thin documents holder, opt for this wooden one for Muji. You’re sure to find whatever you need with its simplistic design.

Sometimes you’ll need some inspiration when working, and a good source is some reading materials. Keep them in place with the Striped Marble + Wood Bookend from West Elm (P2,272). You can even use the bookend to keep your many notebooks aligned.

It’s important to keep focused when you’re faced with any task and have a relaxed mind to get the thoughts going. Place the Lime Basil and Mandarin Scent Surround Diffuser from Jo Malone (P4,176) on your desk to keep the stress away while you work.

Lastly, a little color on your work station doesn’t hurt—whether it’s a boxed arrangement or a vase of any flower or greenery. For this, opt for H&M Home’s gold glass vase (P599) to add more emphasis on any of your flower arrangements.
