Our apartment living room is shaped like a big L and it’s HUGE, so we were able to set up a little desk area in the smaller part of the L, behind the couch. We pieced our “office” together over the first couple months of living here, starting with a new desk and propping my old bookcase vertically.
However, we couldn’t find a chair that worked. We wanted something cozy and unique, and thought a cute upholstered dining table chair could work. Turns out, those are typically too short for desks since you don’t have the ability to adjust them.
Luckily, I was able to use my new Home Decor Cheat Sheets book to figure out the kind of chair that could work. Since it goes through all of the basics of interior design and what things are called, I know it’ll be extremely useful when we buy a house and tackle some remodeling.
After a few months of searching, we finally found the perfect chair and I was finally able to bring our windsor chair back to its proper spot at the head of the dining table.
