Office Move 2 & Ikea
Posted by jane - October 25, 2010
We decided it would be nice to have a more streamlined look but needed desk space for both Mark and myself. Part of the reason for my moving out of The Formation Zone is limited desk and storage space.
As I offer design for print, as well as digital, I think it is important to have various paper samples to show customers, as well my past print work (and since I have been in the print trade for over 25 years I have accumulated a lot of past work!). So therefore a lot of shelf/cupboard/bookcase space was needed.
So we decided a trip to Ikea was needed!
Such is the power of the Ikea brand that we felt it was worth a trek to look at what they offer. Bristol is nearest, but we decided to combine it with a trip to Southampton to see our Daughter.
Fantastic store with various computer stations where you can play with layouts – so we spent 3 hours in their deciding the best layout. Our proposed layout didn’t work with the desk sizes, so taking inspiration from their instore layouts we came up with this.
Overnight I realised one of the desks would have a window behind it, not good for screen glare. So we went back to Ikea and had another play.
However when we got home and looked again at the space we realised it still wasn’t right. Ikea offer an online office layout facility – but it wasn’t perfect as it doesn’t work on an Apple Mac (grrrr) but also doesn’t have the complete range of furniture. Still it was enough to have another play . . .
So decision made – furniture ordered. Very good ordering system, they advise you exactly of delivery – so roll on next Tuesday.Comments Off
