Grandfather Clocks in an Office

04.15.08

Generally when we think of the décor of an office environment we are given to images of staid textiles, commercial carpeting, and utilitarian furnishings. This may be the décor assigned to those offices in corporate America, but certainly not to the offices that a great many of us now have in our homes. In fact, a great many people – in this age of the Internet – work from their home offices exclusively. Subsequently, the face of the modern office is very different indeed from the fundamental images that we have previously held – and require to be outfitted justly.

To this end, many people approach their home offices as an extension of their home’s décor. The use of furnishing, tapestries, and similar components used throughout the home at large are extended to the home office as well, with, of course, the addition of such furnishings and accessories befitting a room used for business purposes.

While many people think of the grandfather clock as something that is reserved for formal living rooms, dining rooms, and foyers of grand homes, the fact is that the applications of this clock are far more extensive than some may envision.

Grandfather clocks can easily be the perfect accoutrement in a home office – a grand, stately, and sophisticated addition to such a room. Standing within an office, a grandfather clock can foster the appearance of a traditional library while also giving the room – which, after all, is within the confines of a home – a warm, welcoming, and melodic manner.
