Decorating an Office with Old World Charm

I’ve always loved the look of those dusty old offices you see in moves—the ones with old leather chairs, architect stools and drafting tables, lots of drawered cabinets, and gorgeous lamps of all kinds. Those offices make me think of Indiana Jones movies.

To get the look (minus the dust), check out the ideas and inspiring photos below:

These vintage-looking lamps are a nice touch, and an easy way to add some old-world charm to an otherwise modern :
