I found Design Mom to be a great source, while coming up with ideas.

We had a makeshift desk in the nook before she started crawling - it was filled with electronics and cords. Once the crawling began, we wanted to create a safe and fun area for her in the family living space. A place that she could call hers. We filled it with furniture her size and shelves she could reach while being safe at the same time. And we needed a place other than just the fridge to disply her artwork!
Remember that small children really only need small spaces. There are so many big toys with bright lights and loud noises on the market. A small desk and little chairs put together in a comfortable fashion can give them a place to learn and grow just the same.
