You probably spend 40 hours (or more) a week working in a cube farm, but it doesn’t mean your work-space has to be sterile and soulless. We found a few things to improve your home sweet cubicle.


A Sit That Fits

For those of us who endure sitting for the majority of the day, a comfortable (and ergonomically sound) office chair is essential! Steelcase and Herman Miller are the best of the best for comfort and good looks. Here’s a list of the greatest chairs for 2015.

Don’t count solely on your memory to get your tasks done. These sticky notes fit perfectly at the bottom of your keyboard and will aid when your memory fails you. (Even if it is to pick up milk on your way home from work.)
