Many people are nearing the one year anniversary of working from home due to the pandemic, and while some immediately invested in desks, ergonomic chairs, and better lighting, others are still playing catch-up. (No judgment—as I write this, I'm sitting at my kitchen table on an unsupportive bar stool that hasn't gotten any more comfortable over the last 10 months.) The point is, there's always time to make upgrades, whether you've been working from home for months or years.

You could spend hours scouring thousands of product reviews on Amazon in search of the absolute best items for your home office setup, but you don't have to. Amazon regularly releases lists of its "most-loved" products from various categories, which compile top-rated, best-selling items with stellar customer reviews. And one of its most recent lists includes shoppers' most-loved work-from-home essentials.

The list has everything you need to make your home workspace look and feel good. We're talking desks for small spaces, table lamps, houseplants (both live and faux), and scented candles. Along with furniture and decor, you'll also find unrestrictive clothing to get you through the day, including warm cardigans, fuzzy slippers, and stretchy sweatpants. After all, the whole getting dressed up to feel normal and productive thing just doesn't happen every day. Sometimes, you simply want to feel comfortable while checking emails on the couch.

Amazon's selection of beloved WFH finds includes more than 100 products. Browse them all on Amazon, or take a look at nine standout pieces below.
