Business review: FEZiBO standing desks14 November, 2022
Strong and lightweight cardboard furniture made in USA21 November, 2022
Yaay! It happened! Ommik got the first customer and built a home office in the bedroom, as requested! I have mentioned this project in one of my previous posts but let me summarize it for you.
Building a home office in the bedroom
The customer set a very certain requirements, but to meet most of them, he also agreed to stretch the budget. Speaking of the budget, it was on the lower end, only 300 €. But the final prize was around 450 €, which was more reasonable.
The requirements were set as follow:
- Type of furniture: office furniture.
- The customer uses an extra monitor, an external keyboard, a mouse, and headphones.
- The customer must have enough space to write on paper as well.
- Important to a customer: shelves, decoration, framed pictures, storage space.
- Not important: cable management, whiteboard.
- Neutral: chargers, mousepad.
- The customer doesn’t eat at the desk (which means he doesn’t need the space to have a meal), but he drinks coffee. That gives me an idea to protect the desk from a hot cup.
Furniture, equipment, accessories, decor
Now, I overlooked the office furniture requirement, because, I believe, this is the worst you can do for your beautiful home interior. Especially, the home office is supposed to be installed in the bedroom. I didn’t want the home office to look like an office INSIDE the bedroom.
For the desk, I have ordered a unique Birchanger from Corrigan Studio. I like the material and the triangular legs. The assembly was super simple. The dimensions are 76 cm x 130 cm x 55 cm.
Next, I had no doubt the chair I am going to order will fit the look like a glove. Unfortunately, after installing it, the customer decided to return it, as he needs a chair a bit higher and without arms. Note to myself for the future: check with customers the chair preferences. Nonetheless, we both agreed that the chair Nicholas looks wonderful and feels extremely comfortable.
The elegant armchair Nicholas from MØRTEENS impressed me with its eye-catching seat shell. Thanks to its ergonomic shape, it offers the most comfortable seating. The material is a high-quality woven fabric with a pleasant feel. The legs are made of solid oak. The armchair Nicholas is my personal recommendation for your home office setup!
I knew from the beginning that the desk lamp must be of a dark color to balance the home office space. I ordered the 40cm tall black desk lamp Shaima. I wanted to hide the lightbulb, that’s why I have chosen this form and design, so there would not be direct light when the customer is working from home.
Besides, I wanted to buy some small but functional accessories and decor. I have ordered a cable management, a headphones holder (that you can use even for bags), a monitor stand, a laptop stand, white shelves.
Finally, there are four home decor items, that I absolutely loved: a vintage dala horse (traditional toy from Sweden) in green color, a donut vase, prints of hands in the frames, and a ceramic pencil holder.
That was it! A beautiful selection of home office equipment and decor, handpicked by me! The photos of the final result will be coming next week.
