The beauty of having a home office is that you can decorate it in any style you want.
And so what if that means several large scale lego models!
Why should you have lego in your home office?
You might have only played with lego when you were a child, but why should they get all the fun!
The first great reason to have Lego in your office is so you have something to look at for inspiration. Looking for inspiration in adult lego sets might not seem like something you’d think about doing, but daydreaming and imagining might be the best way to get rid of that brain fog or writers block.
What to look for in a good adult office lego set:
Chances are you’re going to want something to display rather than play with.
Here are the best themes to look out for when buying adult lego:

So let’s not delay any further. It’s time to look at the 16 best adult lego sets to improve your home office decor!
1. Grand Piano
With the average grand piano costing several thousand pounds and going as high as several hundred thousand pounds, I very much doubt I’ll ever own a grand piano.
It’s not that I play the piano, It’s more that grand pianos are complete works of art that I’d love to able to look at everyday. …And play one day if I get round to it.
Fortunately, Lego have brought out a model version of it that’ll look absolutely fantastic on my desk. And you can even connect your smart phone to it and play music whilst you watch the keys move up and down.
AND it only costs $450!
That’s the kind of detail that I want from Lego and that’s what makes it a great pick for a Lego set you can have in your office!

2. NASA Apollo Saturn V
Unfortunately the last time NASA was recruiting astronauts, they left me off the list…
I dont hold it against them, of course, but I was looking for another way to satisfy my space exploration desires.
That’s where LEGO absolutely saved the day for me.
At just over 39 inches high it cant compete with the actual rocket, but it sure as hell can make for a large sized space model to have in my office.
In fact this one might just take pride of place on my desk!

Whilst the Saturn space rocket makes for a fantastic focus piece in your home office, the star wars Boba Fett helmet is the perfect desk companion

I’m a huge history nerd so the thought of being able to have a model replica of the Roman Colosseum in my home office very much appeals to me. Now all I need is thousands of Roman mini figures!
We’ll get to more of the creator sets later in the article, but for now you’re looking at the Lego set that contains the most pieces ever designed.
This one wont only be hard to build but it will also take you a fair amount of time, too.
The world record for building the Lego Colosseum (yep, that’s actually a record) clocks in at 13 hours 37 minutes and 36 seconds. That’s about 11 Lego pieces placed per minute.

Item number: 42110
6. Statue of Liberty
Lego architecture are Lego sets that deliver iconic and famous buildings from around the world as well as sophisticated and refined designs.
Perfect for any well respecting office.

Item number: 21042

Who in their right mind would pass up an oppurtunity to hang out with the cast of F.R.I.E.N.D.S?
Well now they can watch you work with this F.R.I.E.N.D.S Television series Lego set.
The set features the Central Perk coffee shop that is so frequently shown in the movies and seven minifigures to go with it. Including Gunther!
It’s also the perfect size to fit on small to medium desks or maybe even a side table if you have one of those

9. International Space Station
If the Saturn V space rocket wasn’t enough to quench your space exploration thirst, then maybe the international space station will be.
The Lego set comes with a cool Lego display stand and a couple of space minifigs.
This is probably one of the widest Lego sets on the list, so just keep that in mind if you’re considering putting it on a desk or somewhere that space is an issue.
Number of pieces: 894
Item number: 21321
10. Bonsai Tree
My love for Japanese culture knows no bounds.
Thankfully as part of their Botanical Collection, Lego have introduced a Japanese Bonsai Tree with added cherry blossom that you can add on when spring comes around.
It cute, it’s practical, it’ll probably look good in any office, and it’s Lego.
What’s not to love!

12. Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal Lego set has unfortunately been discontinued but can still be found on either eBay or Amazon for between $300-$600.
It’s a very large set so you’ll either need a massive office desk or a separate coffee table in the corner of the room to fit it in.
If you search hard enough you can also find a set of lights specifically designed for the Taj Mahal model so it’ll light up. A pretty unique table lamp!
Number of pieces: 5,923
Item number: 10256
13. A New Hope Imperial Star Destroyer
As far as I’m concerned, this is the most epic lego model you can have in your office.
The Imperial Star Destroyer is 4,784 pieces large which makes it one of the biggest lego models to date.
The Star Wars model from ‘A New Hope’ Includes an information plaque, two mini figures, and a small scale model of the Tantive IV .
If you’re looking for an authentic piece of Star Wars history that’ll push your office decor to new galactic heights, this might just be it!
At over 43 inches long, it’s a lego model you’ll need a fair bit of space for.
Number of pieces: 4,784
Item number: 75252
14. Hogwarts Castle
Sometimes I find that daydreaming is the best way to inspire creative thoughts or to get a fresh look at problems.
And what’s the best lego set to promote daydreaming?
Magic of course! And in this case, Hogwarts!
With a set that includes a scale model of Hogwarts, 4 mini figures, 5 boats, the whomping willow, and Hagrid’s hut, you’ll never be short of that magical Harry Potter spirit in your office!
Number of pieces: 6,020
Item number: 71043
15. Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon
If you love the Lego Star Wars series and have a larger space for a replica model, the Millennium falcon is your best bet.
At over 7,500 pieces, it’s likely a set that will take several days (if not longer) to complete.
It also includes 4 classic minifigures ( Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and C-3PO) as well as 3 newer ones (Older Han Solo, Rey and Finn).
Number of pieces: 7,541
Item number: 75192
16. Empire State Building
As we’ve seen before, the Lego architecture series makes for some of the most sophisticated and modern looking Lego sets the company has ever designed.
With the Empire State Building, that’s no different. And at 21 inches tall, it’s the tallest Lego architecture building to date.
So, if you’re going for a modern and clean look in your office and you’re short on space, this might just be the best set for you!
