While WFH has a universal meaning, we’re introducing a new acronym, which is a lot more fashionable – WFSCWS – Work From a Stylish Co-Working Space.
Before the inevitable demand for these chic settings hits, we’ve rounded up London’s most attractive co-working spaces, so you can beat the crowd and set up camp by their coffee machines – or mirror their style in your modern home office.
Though, as a warning, though these settings act as striking Zoom backdrop, we confess these interiors are ever-so-slightly distracting. But of course, we can't help but reserve our place anyway.
De Beauvoir Block, Hackney
East London’s candy-cotton-colored haven epitomizes everything we adore about the WFSCWS movement. The blushing space overflows with palm trees, modernist artworks, and an abundance of local coffee – otherwise known as the twenty-first-century trinity.
Hidden in an Edwardian industrial building amid the capital’s creative neighborhood, this blushing haven is constructed of two stylish workspaces, Studio and Dedicated – both of which are forming the backdrop of our dreams. We’re taking modern living room ideas from their ambient aesthetic.

Second Home, multiple locations
Spitalfields, London Fields, Clerkenwell Green, and Holland Park – all different in charisma but equal in style. Second Home combines playful kaleidoscopic hues with a 1960s aura complete with mushroom lamps and oversized furnishings (as seen in Spitalfields above).
Alongside its retro charm, Second Home celebrates the biophilic design trend that allows us to fill our homes into overflowing houseplants in the name of style. This could be our second home, after all.

25 EP, Belgravia
The only thing we love more than a luxe co-working space is a luxe co-working space with a dog – or dogs – on an extra good day. Belgravia’s newest hangout reflects its elegant postcode through its curated interiors that were designed to give the space an unrivaled feeling of prestige. 25 EP uses task lighting, tiles, and timeless vintage jewels to kiss the setting with an ornate aesthetic – all in the company of our dogs. Yes, they’re still going to invade your backdrop at 25 EP.

Mortimer House, Fitzrovia
For those who want to work and party like it’s the roaring 2020s, Mortimer House is the utopia you need to know about. This Art Deco kingdom is a Gatsy-esque luminous paradise where creatives can spend work in an unrivaled setting – then raise a glass when the work is complete. It’s the WFSCWS set-up of our dreams.
Membership information is available at mortimerhouse.com.
We dare say we wouldn't even mind getting out of bed to spend the day in these beautiful settings.
