You’ve cleaned out that spare room, or the odd corner of the second bedroom. Now it’s time to put in some gorgeous new stuff to make yourself a home office to inspire you.

Style Garage

This is a great solution if you’ve got some odd corners to fill. Made-to-measure furniture at reasonable prices, you can specify desk lengths, components, and shelf heights.

78 Ossington Avenue, Toronto


Beautifully modern desks – but the standouts are the bookcase options. I’m not sure I could bear to put anything on them!

Several across Toronto


Japanese store of many delights, their desk organization cube and containers are a joy to use. Tiny wooden cityscapes, minimalist pens in every colour, and simple plain notebooks.

This Toronto shop imports a range of Italian furniture brands. Pricier than IKEA, but if you need a standout piece of furniture, you won’t be disappointed.

429 Richmond St. E, Toronto


Small-scale furniture for apartment living. Modern all the way, but lots of colour too. Lots of shelves, but the desks are particularly cool.

885 Caledonia Road, Toronto
