To Roll or Not to Roll

One of the most important decisions to make about the new workspace, other than the desk of course, is what type of chair do we need/want. Breaking it down to the simplest terms, there are two options: a rolling chair or a non-rolling chair. 

How can a decision be this hard? Especially when it seems so simple. 

Domaine ℅ Emily Henderson

As per usual, Emily Henderson did a rolling chair perfectly. It's cute, sculptural and modern all by itself. Then she went and had it reupholstered and now it looks even better. So smart. So simple.

My thoughts on a rolling chair in our workspace:
  • We have wall to wall carpeted floors, will the wheels destroy the carpet?
  • Rolling chairs can be found at all price points, but I would want to customize mine. Cost of chair + fabric + labor = expensive?
  • Our workspace doubles as a guest room, a rolling chair doesn't really scream "peaceful nights rest".

So it turns out Emily Henderson can also do a non-rolling chair in an office, too. I love, love, love this blue velvet tufted wing back, paired with the natural wood, it's just yummy. 

But, will a non-rolling chair work in our space:
  • Will the immobility of the chair drive me crazy? Getting stuck on the carpet, etc.
  • Will an upholstered chair take up too much visual space in an already over stuffed cramped room? 
Help a girl out, won't you? Let me know if you have a rolling chair in a carpeted space and if it works for you. Or let me know how much you love or hate your non-rolling desk chair. All opinions welcome. I did find a deal and a half on an upholstered chair that could work…

Home Workspace Moodboard

I promised a moodboard for my new home workspace and here it is. I have my work cut out for me. 

Let's break it down shall we? 

1. A simple white desk with metallic accents - no surprises there. I've been talking about that for weeks now. 

2. Additional storage in the form of free standing shelving and baskets. Lots of room for interpretation here, and accessorizing. 

3. Now, let's talk about that chair. It's amazing. I wish I could afford it and I know that every. single. chair. I look at from here on out will pale in comparison. I'm ok with that because it will push me to think outside of the box and not settle on a boring, basic desk chair. 

4. Blue, Coral, White and Gold - a classic and timeless color scheme that I'll also be incorporating into the rest of the guest room. 

Time to start hunting.

6 White Gloss Desks Under 200

So, we're creating a new small workspace in our guest room (here). Where to start? How about a desk. 

Since I recently discovered (here) that my ideal home office would include a simple white desk I scoured the internet to find the best of the best under $200.
I've stayed true to my roots and inspiration and gathered desks with simple lines, high gloss surfaces and touches of metallics.

Spoiler alert: I picked one of these, but have a couple of changes to make before I share all the details. But first, I think a moodboard might be in order.
