TL; DR: Pottery Barn is hosting a WFH event starting September 14th, offering 20% off home office must-haves such as desks, chairs, desktop organizers, office lighting and more.
The dedicated home office – something that was once reserved for freelancers, the self-employed, and house flipping shows on HGTV – has become a staple in millions of households.
Whether you’ve been working from home for * checks * for the past six months or part of the back to school wave but practical, home office setup is part of many of our shopping lists for the foreseeable future.
Whatever your situation, Pottery Barn’s WFH event has you covered: 20% off desks (including customizable modular furniture), desk chairs, desk and wall organizers, and office lighting, and free shipping for orders over $ 79.

Anyone who started their WFH journey at the kitchen table can talk about the importance of having their own desk. It’s never too late to decide that working from your bed isn’t that comfortable (and if you have trouble sleeping, your bed / office situation could be the reason).
Pottery Barn has organized its sales furniture into themed collections to steer your search towards flowing desks. The modular desk options let you customize the shape and height with attachable filing cabinets, tabletops, shelves and more – a perfect solution for couples or children sharing a work area. The selection of chairs includes dozens of representations of the classic swivel chair, from classic leather to elegantly tufted to mesh and clear acrylic. Some options without wheels are also included.
According to Forbes, our brains aren’t as sharp when we work in a dark office: weaker light means less of a particular peptide that maintains connections between neurons in the hippocampus. When talking to non-neurologists, our productivity is not at its peak in a dimly lit environment. Proper home office lighting is doubly important after November 1st, when summer time ends.
Pottery Barn’s retail lighting choices include some gorgeous industrial tabletops that can modernize the shabbiest of spaces, as well as lights and chandeliers to add a sense of structure to a space that doesn’t feel like a work area.
This isn’t just a WFH thing – when there is junk strewn all over our desk it is difficult to focus on anything other than fidgeting with pens or organizing the mess. However, if your desk is both your child’s desk and the junk mail table at the same time, keeping your items classified and organized is a must.
If you’re having trouble keeping track of the new routine, the idea of ”one place for everything and everything in its place” will help reduce the urge to do anything other than strap yourself in your seat belt. Office accessories for sale include desktop organizers for pens, headphones, notebooks, and more, marble catchalls, hanging folders, and large dry erase calendars that still look luxurious.
