It had to be modern and minimal, but still functional. And it had to fit in with the decor of our master bedroom.
After much back-and-forth on ideas, we settled on this simple "wedge" of a desk. It's more of a shelf, really. I had seen a much smaller version used to hold a plant, and thought: "Well, why couldn't we just make it really BIG and put a computer on it?" Easier said than done, of course. Cutting angles that sharp to make joints is kinda tricky. Or so my husband tells me. (But he did it. I knew he could. He always does.)
I especially love that it looks more like a display for artwork than a piece of furniture. And it's got a hidden storage area inside to hold all those wires, hard drives and miscellaneous computer stuff that always seems to junk up a work space. Eric skillfully added some magnets to the inside left panel to keep it in place and easily removable. Sneaky, huh?
As for seating, we're using a small, decorative ottoman that can be moved out of the way.
Once again Eric exceeded my expectations by creating something that's minimal, functional and beautiful.
