Although not a new concept, remote work is definitely still a hot topic as more and more people are looking for a way to truly achieve work/life balance and beginning to understand how possible remote work is for so many industries.
“Trending” is probably not the best term as remote work is more than a temporary trend; it is a shift from the 9-5 work day started during the Industrial Revolution. Quite honestly, it is the new normal.
This week I was super stoked to receive this email from Fab.com featuring a collection of curated pieces inspired by their art director Robert’s WFH set-up.
I love fab.com and own and have gifted several of their products over the last decade, it is no surprise that this Brooklyn behemoth is on board with remote work.
There is a quote in the body of the email from them that says “At home, the whole place is your space!”
How true is that?!?! I love that by working remotely you don’t have to confine your creativity to a cubicle!
My current personal favorites from Fab.com are:
This polka dot tea kettle by Kate Spade (also available in Turquoise or Red).
“Whistle while you work” is engraved on the lid of the spout. It’s really the cutest thing and makes me want to ease up on the coffee, man.
I’m having a tea moment and although nothing is as efficient as my Proctor Silex K2070YA Electric Kettle from Hamilton Beach, this sure would add the perfect pop to my kitchen.
I love this techy treat – the Home Monitoring Doorbell Camera with accompanying app by Ring.
This is perfect for working from home! Now you can see who is at your door without getting up from your computer! Get instantly alerted with the free Ring app the moment visitors set foot on your property with motion detection feature. The app also enables you to hear and speak to the intruders visitors and has a record function as well. Tools to mount included in the package. Available in 3 finishes.
This cork board – Because some reminders need to be in yo face!
I’m all for going paperless but try as I might there seems to always be some kind of reminder that gets scribbled on a post-it or napkin. White tile look gives a clean background to add your thoughts to.
And here is where I share the tools I’m using for my work from home set-up, including the desk that I’m using as a make-shift stand up/standing desk…you know what I mean, I’m standing while working guys.
