Happy Monday (we survived the weekend!) and welcome to the 12th and final installment of "Home is where the office is," a series of posts in which I've celebrated — and recommended a whole bunch of products to — the roughly 20 million members of the American workforce who shuffle to their dens, spare bedrooms, kitchen tables, mom caves or backyard office pods at least once a week to do work that would otherwise be performed in a soulless office block miles away.

For today's post, I'll be taking a look back at some of the best and the brightest home office-appropriate furnishings and accessories that I've had the pleasure of rounding up for your perusal over the past few weeks (plus, I've thrown in a couple of new items). That said, I've covered a lot of territory — see the complete list of "Home is where the office is" posts at the bottom of this page — so this is just a small taste of what's out there. And remember, although buying new is fine when the item in question is designed and built to last using eco-friendly materials, don't disregard something old as there is plenty of gently used, rehabable furniture out there just waiting for a new home (office).
