Well, except that combination in the photograph is unworkable because the chair seat is much too low for the desk. Unless you fancy reaching up and over to type.
Thanks for the link! I am hoping to fix up my home office soon, so these links will definitely help!
I want to make my desk look nicer by getting rid of my ugly screen and getting a nice white one like above in the picture. Which kind is this? What company?
I have tried and tried, but other than to pile crap on, I'm not a "desk person". I grew up doing my homework on our big Federal dining room table with armless Queen Anne Chairs. My mother still does bill paying this way, tucking everything away in a cabinet afterwards. I've adopted this practice too now that I just have a laptop and not a PC. And my "office cabinet" also does double duty as a landing strip with everything nice and tucked away and a bowl for keys, a lamp and flowers on top. In my house (which is less than 1200 square feet for two people) ditching the desk made all the difference. 2 drawers will envelopes, office tools and supplies, and paper and files below. Bills and other paperwork go in one of the drawers. I do have an "office"/workroom in the basement but I use the desk for crafts, a cart holds the printer next to it.
@LouSalomé - That is likely an HP or a Dell. It's probably not just a monitor, though. It's very likely the entire computer is inside that screen so you're better off buying just a monitor if you don't need to replace your entire computer.
I have that yellow desk from West Elm and I love it. Lots of room, an awesome color and easy to clean.
