A luxury office at home

While I was telling you about my interview with Jacques Gravel from MÖBEL in this article. I owe him one of my most recent purchases. The Aeron chair by Herman Miller. The latter is part of the perfect paraphernalia for a luxury home office.

The Aeron Chair, An Essential for your Luxury Office at Home

Herman-Miller---The-Aeron-Chair

I own this chair for a few months now, and spending several hours behind my computer, I can tell you that it is an amazing addition. But what does this special chair have to justify its high price? Ergonomic to the core, Aeron was designed for a wide range of body types, thanks to the extensive research from designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick nearly 30 years ago. Its launch was pioneering in the office furniture industry—and it still is, thanks to updated research and material innovation, including the addition of ocean-bound plastic to the body of the chair. Herman Miller have always known Aeron is good for our bodies—now it’s just as good for our environment too.  

Far away from the chair you’re probably sitting on, the Aeron Chair is the benchmark for ergonomic seating since its debut in 1994. Since then, Herman Miller has learned a lot about how to best support people—and their postures. Aeron offers smarter weight distribution through 8Z Pellicle, adjustable PostureFit SL for total spinal support, and balanced recline and natural movement thanks to Harmonic 2 Tilt.

Plus, they’re handcrafted in the USA. We are talking about a product made to last and which will accompany you for a long time. They often have promotions. In addition, you can choose different options, but the manufacturing time may be longer.

The Logitech Brio Webcam in 4K Ultra HD

If, like me, you have a Mac Mini or a laptop, the quality of your web camera is often poor. And with all the different meetings, whether business or family, you want an exceptional product. I would have liked the 4K Pro Magnetic Webcam designed specifically for the beautiful Apple Pro Display XDR, but I didn’t have the $8,000 required to purchase it yet. So I turned to the Logitech Brio Webcam. It is just perfect. In 4K and Ultra HD, it has vivid colours. You can even adjust the zoom with their LogiTune app. In short, it is the perfect accessory for all your future conference videos. Also, since it’s small, you can easily pack it into your suitcase so you can look your best, no matter where in the world you are.

The Coffee Machine, Essential to Start your Day

I love Nespresso, it really is a perfect system. Different capsules, whether Original or Vertuo, you will be served. They even introduced a subscription system so you never run out of coffee. Even though I have both machines (thank you Nespresso for the Vertuo), I think I get the Creatista Plus or the Creatista Pro (the latter has a function for Americano), which are much better for making coffee from milk and really give the impression of being a barista because I have a big penchant for the original capsules. On the other hand, if you are fans of large format coffees, opt for Vertuo, which I was telling you about here.

Montblanc---The-Meisterstück-Collection

One thing I love is taking notes by hand. Just to get me off the screen and also to have the pleasure of scratching off what is being done. I’m lucky to have a Montblanc Meisterstück, a gift from my mother many years ago. I love its grip, the fact of making a gesture. And writing on paper allows me to see my ideas clearly. In short, I recommend it to you. And these are gifts whether we receive or give ourselves that last a lifetime. Moreover, Montblanc offers courses to improve your cursive writing. The latter will also help you perfect your spelling. And let’s face it, the cursive script is a lot more romantic, grown-up and official.

To go with your Montblanc mentioned above, get a notebook from their collection. They even have some with an augmented paper.

A Doorbell Camera, to Never miss a Delivery to your Home Office

Here we are in the technology side. While I offered you various headsets above, these have the unfortunate function of often preventing you from perceiving outside sound. It is for this reason that the doorbells from the company ring, a subsidiary of Amazon, therefore compatible with the various tools of the Alexa family, as well as several other digital assistants, are essential, because in addition to being a doorbell, you will see your various notifications, whether in your ears or on the screen. There is no reason to go without it, unless your household is in a plex. The task can probably be more complex at this time.
