Check out places like Home Depot or Lowes, not for furniture but for counter tops. My brother-in-law has a similar sized space. He went down to Home Depot, bought some counter top and a couple of cabinets. He also put some shelving in underneath. It's all attached to the wall and looks nice. He runs two flat panel displays attached to the wall so a CRT monitor doesn't take up any valuable desk space. It looks nice and didn't cost a lot. If you want to spend more money they will design and pre-build modules for you but that would add a bit to the expense.

I've only got about a 12x11 space, and I want more of a workcenter than just a desk. I've been all over town at office supply stores, furniture stores, everywhere, looking at stuff, websites, etc, and there seems to be just two choices: well designed but cheaply built junk, or less well designed but well built and very expensive stuff that mostly goes in to million dollar homes in rooms that no one will really do any real work in. does anyone know where can i find some reasonably priced but well designed office furniture? I'm looking for a corner hutch type of thing, with plenty of flat desk space and storage. For the space i'm filling, I don't need or want $4000 worth of furniture in a 120k house. I can probably go as high as $1500. The best place on the web I've found is, of all places, Staples website and this stuff: http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&partNumber=SS990065 at the bottom of this page, (look for "bush master simulator") they even have a handy little web app to draw out your office and add the modular components to build your office, and then it'll give you a parts list to order with. Using that tool, I've a pretty decent layout for my space, and the price is reasonable, but I have no idea about the quality of this stuff - is it all particle board crap? I have no idea, it might be nice, but they don't have any in stock at my local staples. plus, I'm not sure I like the way it looks. Any ideas?
