I don’t think I can say that there is one room in our house that is “finished”. Each room is a work in progress and some rooms are a little farther along than others. We have a large family room with a sectional sofa/lounge that that has plenty of room behind it to place a console table or desk. I am all about maximizing the space in a room. Placing a desk behind a sofa is a great design idea that can work in both large or small rooms. I particularly love this arrangement in a smaller room and having the furniture float in the middle of the space as opposed to lining everything up against the wall.
I was out shopping on Saturday and happened to find a desk that would suit the room well. I immediately purchased it and had it delivered yesterday. It’ a great addition to our home and I particularly love the fact that it is a piece of furniture with a purpose. I can easily see myself writing letters or notes while Mr. B is enjoying some TV viewing!
Placing a desk behind a sofa is a design trick that can work into any decor no matter what your style is. For today I leave you with a few examples…which is your favorite?
