It is no longer enough to have a home office that functions properly, now we have to consider how Zoom-worthy our surroundings are. But a few changes can make all the difference when it comes to setting up a chic camera-ready space. Nothing lends credibility like a bookcase background, whether you’ve already amassed a library that needs to be artfully arranged or have to purchase one that’s already curated for you. Simply add a desk, some accessories and a flattering light source—like this minimalist stunner below—to take your video call game to the next level.
