When you work regularly from a home office, it’s imperative to have the solutions you need to get a job done: your tools, tech, and supplies at the ready; the right amount of space to successfully complete a given task; comfortable, supportive seating (something we know a thing or two about); and a touch of personality to make long days (or nights) in the space worth it.
When two people share the same home office, however, that’s when things can get complicated. In a recent post about a George Nelson-inspired home from Apartment Therapy Tech, we showed you an office designed to easily accommodate a husband-and-wife team in Austin. Here are few more smart ways we’ve seen couples, partners, and friends tackle the same issue.

More side-by-side desk spaces, this time from artist Carrie Strine and graphic designer and illustrator Tim Lahan in New York City. (We’re wondering, though, why is the right Mac eight minutes behind the left?)
