For many home owners and apartment dwellers, a living room home office can be a necessity, especially when more than one person needs a workstation. While some people frown at integrating an office area in a living room, something that traditionally is reserved for family, others find a balance between work and leisure. Chris' home office living room has got wonderful tones and windows, that set it apart from others we've seen.

Chris, who is also known as Zgradis, is from Chicago, Illinois, and his living room home office sets itself apart thanks to the incredible views out of his high-rise. The impressive view of the Sears Tower and other landmarks is complemented with a moody living room home office. The reddish glow of the LED lights hidden behind this screens give the whole room a mercurial quality.

His desk sits in the corner of his living room, while his home entertainment system, complete with a Xbox 360 HALO edition video console, is right next to it. This allows him to easily stream media and use the 40" Samsung HDTV whenever he feels the need.

A large tasteful painting sits above his workstation, which also has some reddish hues. Other decorations include an orchid on his desk, a LEGO Droideka (destroyer droid from Star Wars), and a large Buddha candle highlight the unusual atmosphere of this living room home office.
