Earlier this year I decided it was time to move my home-based business to an office location. As much as I enjoyed working from home the past four years, my 64 square foot dormer office was barely enough room for me and one overweight tabby cat. I was bursting at the seams with catalogues, sample books and other tools of the trade. So, I was very excited to find an office building very close to my home offering affordable 1-2 person office suites. I’ll miss my faithful feline assistant, but now I have enough space for an actual human assistant (TBD)! Come and take a tour of the new digs:
I had fun designing the office for myself, thinking about the best way to lay out the space to accommodate two working in the space, and up to three in a meeting. That’s why I have the conference table “nesting” the way it does. It can pull out for a meeting situation, but most of the time it functions as an extra worksurface. Almost all of the furniture is IKEA, except for the chairs which are Steelcase (my new grey one) and Herman Miller (the blue one, which I’ve had forever!) A good office chair is a worthwhile investment, your back will thank you for it. Oh, and I did splurge on a spiffy rug, because the carpeting was kinda sad. And added a few decorative accessories. But pretty clean and simple overall, right? Only thing missing: one cat.
There you have it, the grand tour. Do stop in sometime soon for a visit!
