Working from home? Take a look at our MeadowSide must-haves to make your colleagues seriously jealous during those video conference calls.
The novelty of spending all day in your PJs soon wears off, and it’s important that you dedicate yourself a place at home where you can truly get into the zone.


The first thing you’re going to need is a desk. Sitting on the sofa might be comfy but it’s easy to get distracted (especially if you’re knee-deep in the latest Netflix series).  David Phillips have you covered, we love this sleek, black desk!

Speaking of comfy, a good quality, adjustable desk chair will mean you can stay focused, with no niggly aches and pains. This rose velvet one from John Lewis brings a little bit of luxury to your working day.

Agile working means you’re likely to be on your laptop. Ikea’s bamboo BRADA is a great way to lift your laptop to eye level, which will also reduce stress on your back and it’s a bargain.

Talking of bargains, these initial notepads are just perfect from Paperchase, oh Paperchase! So many delightful desktop accessories, we especially like these giant pastel post-it notes and cute gold pens.

As you can tell from the MeadowSide show apartment, we love to bring the outdoors inside and introducing plants to your work area is a great way to do this!

You can order direct from local florist, Flourish via their Instagram.

They have succulents from as little as £3, so go wild, and mix and match different sizes to create a vibrant tropical theme!

Flourish – £4 @flourish_manchester


If you’re not green-fingered, how about a terrarium – we spotted this one from Northern Flower. Don’t worry if you’re not naturally green-fingered, our houseplants blog will give you the tips you need to maintain happy and healthy plans indoors!

Jungle is massive, and we couldn’t resist the latest trend – a monkey lamp! This one from Oliver Bonas is sure to brighten up your day.
