With many employers taking crucial steps to flatten the curve of COVID-19, more and more Canadians now are finding themselves working from home. While it’s a privilege less than half of the working population can take, as a former long-time freelancer myself, I know that the work-from-home situation is a new normal that does take time to get adjusted to.

A simple and effective solution to keep you motivated to work is to create a space that feels familiar with the right office decor and essentials. To help you update and create your perfect at-home office, below, we've rounded up what we think you need that don't come short of inspiration and innovative design. and because right now is the crucial time to support local businesses, our picks are all from local Canadian Etsy vendors.
