I would use fields as follows:

First Name
Last Name
Street Address
Postal Code

Mailing Address
Postal Code

"Street Address" is standard for physical address. Adding "Company" to the
name/address area in effect asks the customer for their work address. Home
users will leave that field blank.

Hope this helps.
