20 Quiet Home Offices Just in Time for Tax Day

1 Mins read

April 15th is just a few days away, and while there’s nothing wrong with waiting until the last minute (or getting an extension) on your tax return, preparing to file is never fun. The best way to cure a tax-induced headache is a quiet, cozy area where you can focus—preferably at home, maybe even surrounded by beautiful art. Here are 21 home offices that we’d definitely enjoy using during tax season.

It’s one thing to live with art. But to live submerged in it—as do the owners of this Sag Harbor, New York, getaway—requires a whole other level of connoisseurship and commitment, not to mention a rather prolific collection. “The project’s biggest challenge,” says Groves & Co. principal Russell Groves, who masterminded the interiors, “was marrying the very forward art with the traditional envelope.” In the study, a velvet-covered sofa joins a vintage Nordiska Kompaniet floor lamp, a Nanna Ditzel teak desk, and a classic Eames executive chair.


Architects Andreas Fuhrimann and Gabrielle Hächler are notable for the fluid transitions between spaces as well as the clarity, simplicity, and rich tactility of the materials palette. Those specialties are leveraged in another multistage project they recently completed: transforming a midcentury-era villa just south of Zurich into a combination residence, studio, and exhibition space for an art-world couple.

A sixty-something couple decided to move from Lyon back to Paris, their hometown, but their hunt dragged out for more than a year without success. So they reached out to Studio JeanCharlesTomas for help. The interior designer was tasked with finding a two-bedroom flat in the Sixth Arrondissement—the only parameters given for the otherwise carte-blanche project. One month later, the clients purchased this classic 19th-century apartment at the designer’s urging. In the office, a Vico Magistretti lamp and Gaël Davrinche’s Georges Washington bring a modern touch.
