Looking to furnish your new home office or, umm, backyard office pod? Normally, I'd suggest going the vintage route when it comes to home office furniture but the affordable and attractive five-piece Pratt Home Office Collection from West Elm has really got it going on.

Designed by students partaking in the Pratt Design Incubator at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute, this unique collaboration consists of a desk, chair, file cabinet, LED table lamp, and coming soon, a wall accessory set with picture set, pencil holder, and corkboard. Each elegant, unfussy piece is constructed from eco-friendly materials such as Forest Stewardship Council-certified eucalyptus wood, water-based stains, nontoxic glues, and recyclable powder-coated steel. 
I've been loving West Elm's recent design collaborations — specifically some sustainable tag-team efforts with David Stark — and the Pratt Home Office Collection is no exception ... it's beautiful, thoughtfully designed stuff. Like what you see? Head on over to West Elm where the entire collection is on sale now from $99 through $254.
