You don’t need the thinnest, lightest, or most elegantly designed items for your home office. In the space you make your living, you need reliable, comfortable, efficient tools—though it doesn’t hurt if they look nice, too. That’s why a team of three experienced remote workers spent more than 150 hours researching and testing new gear and apps, picking the most office-friendly items to find a selection of tools that we’re sure will earn a place in your workspace.
