So, you’re setting up your first home office, or perhaps you never did create a space for one and you’re tired of working from your couch. Well, the good news is, you don’t need a lot of room to set up a work space and you don’t need a big budget either. Sprucing up your office can be as simple as adding a new task lamp, a few desk accessories, and a little greenery—it’s known to boost your mood.
With that in mind, we scoured three of our favorite home sites—Target, CB2, and Urban Outfitters—to find the best cheap office décor for under $100. From mid-century desks to marble table lamps, we hope you’ll find something that creates an inspiring environment that sparks the next next billion-dollar business idea.
