Get the Look (On a Budget): Linea Studio

Why, hello there deliciously bright and spacious workspace. If you're like us, you've long dreamed of pulling off a room like this solely dedicated for work. Filled the rim with books and inspiration, it'd be light and airy, just welcoming all types of creative ideas to come drifting in. And while Linea Studio has ideal space and furniture to work with, we're here to help you pull it off for a fraction of the price.

For the chairs (which are probably the most expensive of the pieces) we suggest checking out CB2 for some sweet alternatives that pull off a similar look, but for much, much less. Their Clover Chair ($350) is a nice pick with a fresh sprout color as its base color.

As for sawhorse table legs, Apartment Therapy has you covered there. We personally prefer the cheaper option on Amazon, where you can get a pair of sawhorse legs for a mere $36. You can grab your plywood or finished surface of choice at any lumber yard or the IKEA scrap section. Just make sure you secure the table top down with a few brackets to keep things from moving around. Some instructions can be found here if you're feeling up to it.

Finally, for the lamp - you can pretty stick with any desk lamp that has a bright bulb, a clamp, and lots of head clearance. We've rounded up a number of them earlier this year. But of course, if you're on a tight budget, the ANTIFONI lamp from IKEA ($30) is always a good choice.

Hopefully that helps you on your way to building the ultimate workspace. If you have other ideas to contribute to this type of space, let us know below!
