I need some advice on my home office. This is my first time working primarily from home and I am loving the flexibility. I’m passionate about what I do so I’m super-fun-times-happy to be doing it… BUT!
I HATE working at a desk! In my mind there is nothing more evil than a desk chair, and a desk is never big enough for me.
I have resorted to working on the bed, which isn’t really good for obvious reasons. I love working on couches, but I can’t leave my stuff all over the living room all the time.
Do you have any advice for alternative office furniture that will allow me to spread both my work and myself out without killing my productivity or sleep? -Alisa B
I, too, hate working at a desk. Over the six years I’ve been working at home, I’ve refused to use my desk! Instead, I work on my living room couch — I’m far more effective working that way. (My poor posture can attest to that.) Which is why I’ve been thinking about switching out my coffee table for one of these babies…
A lift-top coffee table — All the comforts of my living room, with the posture-saving bonus of a desk! Then when you’re done with work, you could shove all your work stuffs under the hood (so-to-speak) and, boom, your living room is work-free!
I also kind of want to combine with
Think Geek’s Jellyfish Bouncy Chair. It’s better than the whole “sitting on a bouncy ball” thing, because this one won’t roll away. Apparently it also “feels like sitting on an upside down butt.”
Homies, what are your favorite alternative home office furniture pieces?
