One of the things that is highest in priority to get though is a desk. Since I write so often, it is much more practical and conducive to accomplishment to do it at a desk. I can finally set up a filing system, and have all my calendars, notebooks and other materials in one place.
But it's also way inspiring to designate a space that's specifically for creating. I envision books, inspiration boards and pages torn from magazines littering the desk (in an organized way of course).
I've found that two specific--but opposing--styles of desk speak to me: ones that fit in with a very sleek and modern vibe; as well as very heavy, solid colored vintage desks.
More than anything else, I want something that's really unique and that blends into my existing furniture without matching it too much. For that reason, I think a vintage style might work best, but we'll see what happens. I have a list of a couple of places to visit in Baltimore like Great Finds and Design and Bella Cose, and I'm going to make it a point to look for online pieces that won't be doubled in price by shipping costs.
Where do you go for great pieces of furniture for your home?
