Working out of a beautiful, functional and organized home office is the only way to go!
Let me show you this before! That pink chair was the WORST!!
Trust me, until recently, I was working out of the opposite!
I used to joke on zoom calls that my chair was going to break but thankfully it never did.
Executive Home Office
I finally hit my breaking point and decided to change my home office from a zero to all new executive like home office.
Anytime I look to redo a space in my home, I do extensive research before I buy my home products.
I looked for desks at pretty much every online and in person store you can think of.
I ultimately narrowed it down to a desk table vs a desk with drawers.
If I went with the desk table, then I would have ended up needing to buy storage cabinets for my office stuff.
So I created a few different design boards and got out my measuring tape!
Not measuring is a lesson I’ve learned the hard way a few too many times…
Another aspect of this office makeover is where I would plug everything in.
After pricing out the office desk I liked with the two office storage cabinets, I decided that it was more cost effective to buy an office desk with drawer storage instead.
Execuitve Home Office Design Board
Next, I finalized the office design orientation.
Lucky for me, I had power outlets and ethernet outlets on all 3 walls in my office.
But of course, I put the office in the center of the office looking out.
The office cord solution? Cutting a small slit in the rug in order to run the power behind the desk and plug into the wall.
I could do an entire post on office cord solution so let me know if you’d be interested!

This wide office desk space gives me so much room to work without feeling crammed.

The desk high quality and beautiful! The desk has classic details like crown molding, fluted posts and hand-applied finishes.
I ordered my Livingston executive desk in the gray wash color.
I have similar gray colored furniture in my master bedroom and my office is in the sitting room of our master bedroom.

Lots of desk storage
I found that my Pottery Barn Livingston desk has so much space to organize that I haven’t even filled it all yet!
It has 6 total drawers. 3 small top drawers, 2 medium drawers and 2 large drawers that can also serve as file cabinets.
White glove in home delivery
The desk come in 3 pieces.
It is fairly easy to put together and take apart but I loved the white glove delivery.
All total, it took 10 minutes to put the desk together.
Fits with any décor style
Pottery Barn Executive Desk Cons
Top drawers could be deeper
I had trouble finding desk organizers that were less than 1.5” deep.
Most drawer organizers are 2” deep.
But once I found some, I made these drawers work and they are very long allowing for a lot of shallow storage for pens, tape, lists receipts and so much more!
Wish that the drawers had a soft close feature
In my experience, most desks don’t come with a soft close drawer features but I just thought it would be nice!!
First desk delivery came damaged
Luckily Pottery Barn let me use the damaged one (it was still functional).
So the main downside was that I had to empty the desk when they brought the new piece or I could have opted to wait but I had already disassembled my old desk so luckily I was to use the damaged one.
Pottery Barn shipped it fairly quickly and even offered to reimburse my white glove shipping costs so it all worked out.
