This week’s Workspace of the Week is Mushroom Princess’ dual function workspace:
There are so many things to love about this week’s workspace feature. The most obvious is the way that it combines a standing height desk on the left with a sit-down space on the right. The shelf on the bottom of the desk, when combined with the higher chair, gives space for the worker to rest her feet while working at the sit-down computer. (I’m assuming the desk owner is female only because of the word Princess in the account name. My apologies if this assumption is incorrect.) Beyond the stand-sit combination, the single bookshelf is visually appealing and extremely practical. The wall-mounted speakers behind the larger monitor free up important desk space. All materials stored below the desk are in containers so as not to create a visual mess. There appears to be a metal strip behind the large monitor that papers are adhered to or the wall is painted with magnetic paint — both of which are fantastic ideas. Both workspaces have terrific task lighting. And, my favorite thing about the desk is that the drawers are asymmetrical. It’s an interesting desk that is perfectly sized for the space. Thank you, Mushroom Princess, for submitting your fabulous workspace to our Flickr pool.
