Curbly is devoting the month of January to home offices so we’ve decided to share a few stories with each other. Enjoy!
Curbly reader and guest blogger Alica Di Raga recently moved into a new townhome, and got the chance to create a totally sweet home office from scratch.
She says, “I live in Houston, TX and run Dismount Creative, a company that runs social craft classes (jewelry, fashion and home projects) in bars and restaurants. I also sell online at Etsy at and blog regularly. My husband and I moved into a 2.5 bedroom townhouse a few months ago.”
“We’d originally planned to get a 3 bedroom and devote 1 of the bedrooms for my studio, but the loft in this slightly smaller place really appealed to me. I love the 3rd floor balcony outside and the bright light that streams in through the windows all round.”
“It doesn’t have a door, though, which means I need to keep things neat so I hit up The Container Store and Ikea to get organized. ”
This story originally ran on Curbly.

Modern Findings: cat on a hot Eames rocker.
Curbly: Plastolux posts his home office complete with Aeron chair and vintage George Nelson desk.
Mark Wentzel: Those lovely fat Eames chairs. I know Mark made them in 2009 but I only just discovered them and I think they deserve a bit more attention.
Notcot: A chocolate Eames house. OK, again this was published a while ago but I bet a lot of you missed it. Canadian magazine The Block commissioned chocolate guru Thomas Haas to make the classic 1949 Eames Case Study house.
Apartment Therapy: Where’s the connection here? Well, the bunny is called Eames. And that’s it really. Although we did start with a cat. Get the full story on Pawesome.
