Creating a home office

The home office is truly a space where form and function in design is a necessity.

Whether the office area is to be tucked into a kitchen corner, a section of the guest room or in a designated office room, consider usage and users in planning furniture and computer pieces. Be sure the area is equipped with lighting, electric outlets and a landline if needed. Sketch a plan that incorporates a desk top for work surface, a credenza for files and bookshelves for display space. Select furniture in similar style that will flow with your home. A nightstand or end table can be repurposed as a printer stand. To make the space as cozy as the rest of our home, bring in décor such as a silver vase and pottery to hold pens, paper clips, etc. instead of the typical utilitarian office supplies. A framed family photo and a small vase of fresh flowers are the perfect finishing touch.

Today's Home


When Sigmund and Audrey Lenchner, both Taylor Allderdice graduates, founded Today’s Home, they had a vision to enrich the lives of area families by bringing true quality home furnishings to Western Pennsylvania. Over the decades, Today’s Home has emerged as a true “family business” success story. Through the years, our dedicated employees have managed to grow the company in an age dominated by big box retailing and mega chains.

Now Today’s Home, with its roots firmly planted in the luxury residential furnishings market, has additional operating companies in Designer Furniture Outlet Stores and TH TRADE Commercial. DFO has become the luxury closeout treasure-hunter’s favorite haunt. Our newest addition, TH TRADE, provides ASID level design to our commercial contract customers. We invite you to contact a Today’s Home designer to visit our showroom and see the world of possibilities awaiting you at Today’s Home.
