If you are willing to pay up to R33,000, you can now find some of the more interesting and unusual work-from-home furniture solutions in South Africa, from ergonomic seating company Angelshack.
From a factory outside Johannesburg – and sometimes with the help of designers such as Germany's Stefan Brodbeck – it creates workstations easy on the eye while still, it says, sacrificing nothing in comfort.
The Hive chair is one example.
Neither desk nor booth, it was not originally designed for work-from-home; it was intended to provide some privacy in an office environment, ready to cluster.
But its design happens to work at home too, with a multi-adjustable sliding table, power socket, and some storage space.
Depending on the model you’re looking for, the Hive chair can set you back from anything between R19,000 for a basic Hive chair to R33,000 for a fully spec one.
Or you can have a R4,000 minimalist table
The Angelshack laptop table was created for nomadic workers, but also translates to work-from-home – for R3,999.
You can have a full-sized table for less money, though
Another piece that translates to home use is the wooden study table by Studio K. It come with a sliding top, making for lots of storage. It retails for a little over R3,000.
But not all office furniture will fit into a home aesthetic
Another approach to a sliding desk is one that swings open, to make temporary use of limited space. It will set you back R8,000 – and comes with storage unit that makes it clear at a glance you are adapting office furniture to home use.
