More companies than ever are allowing, encouraging—even requiring—their employees to work from home. It’s essential, then, that your apartment can double up as a practical, comfortable home office. The luxury rentals at ARO have all the space you could want, plus creature comforts you don’t usually get at the office.
From its studio spaces to its luxury penthouse offerings, ARO invariably offers beautifully proportioned residences that make the most of every square inch. Invest in a classic-look Cherry Creek executive desk or a contemporary Bernhardt Linea writing desk, made from black forest marble and cast aluminum, from Perigold. (They deliver straight to your door and offer free shipping.) Either desk will fit effortlessly into your open-plan apartment space, while floor-to-ceiling windows provide your desk with cinematic views across Midtown West and beyond.
Chances are, your usual workplace does not have a kitchen like those at ARO. Forget on-the-go breakfasts on the subway: when working from home, you can do the most important meal of the day at your own pace. Prepare fruit salads, scrumptious omelets, and plenty of fresh coffee in the chef’s kitchen with premier stainless-steel appliances. Or make a healthy buffet on the Caesarstone countertops—to graze on throughout the day. Seeing as you’re at home, you can also take the opportunity to put a wash on or get dinner in the oven—so it’s ready the moment you clock off.
Reclaim your coffee break by stepping out onto the apartment balcony for 20 minutes with coffee and cookies. Maybe your other half is working from home too; in which case, enjoy some quality time overlooking stunning views of Hell’s Kitchen, Central Park, Columbus Circle, and Midtown West. Turn lunch into an event by whipping up quick, nutritious salads during the week, and on Friday, treat yourself to take-out from one of the neighborhood restaurants. And as for the time you’d usually spend commuting: turn it into a fitness workout or Netflix hour.
If you’re going to be working from home indefinitely, it’s worth taking the time and effort to make your ARO workspace perfect. With your dream desk already in place, consider embellishing it with an elegant Possini Euro Bentley French Bronze LED Desk Lamp from Lamps Plus. Add a splash of greenery with an Instant Jungle Bundle from Plantshed. Finesse your desk with a miniature statue of Rodin’s Thinker or a Degas bather sculpture, courtesy of The Met Museum’s inspirational online store. If you’re not yet a convert to the working-from-home lifestyle, you soon will be.
