Justin's Desk Features Clever Lighting Built Into Shelves

There's nothing more boring than a plain, old home office, especially one that's facing a wall. Most of us think that there's not much you can do with that. Well, Justin didn't think so. He took it upon himself to decorate his workspace in a most interesting way and we think that he did so splendidly.

The one thing that we really like about his space is his creative use of lighting. He placed a shelf with integrated lighting high above his desk. The LED spots are perfect for working. The same type of shelf is placed lower to provide more lighting. Plus, they light up the artwork, which creates the feel of a window. It's large, takes up most of your view when you look at it, and it's probably perfect to take a break and ponder your work.

His office has an iMac and a MacBook Pro. There a secondary workstation which has got a PC. A neat addon to his iMac is the Griffin Powermate, a sort of programmable knob that can do many different things. Most of the furniture is from IKEA, the desk is a Galant.

The other interesting thing is how he placed his shelves. The higher one can be used to store books while the lower one is perfect to store knickknacks. We think that it's a great way to organize your office, and it's a standout workstation.
