Home Office: Desks

We’re building a home office that will work for 2. This should be interesting. I’m desperately trying to learn my husband’s organizational skills and he’s learning to be accommodating with my more “ad hoc” style (that’s a nice way of saying that he’s dealing with my piles of stuff). Nah, I’m not that bad, but I do love the idea of starting fresh and having a system to store everything.

I’d feel super productive behind any one of these desks:

    Hello! I was doing a “Vintage Herman Miller desk” search and came upon your posts about office space! I love some of the desks you found except, unfortunately, I am dimension cramped. If you are wanting to look at the kitchen and ponder any suggestions on what best desk would fit there, pop over to my blog at http://justsputtering.blogspot.com/2010/06/manu… Hope you are getting some sleep with a new baby around!
