It has been now been a little over two years since i moved into my apartment. And i think i never shared the “after” of the office/guestroom. As a reminder, here is what it looked before:
It has come a long way since then. Some phases i did not really take pictures of, but i purchased in the beginning three of these Muji-tables because i love their clean and simple look. One was sold in the meantime ( the size was smaller than the two i kept ). There have been some Expedits, also sold meanwhile.
Today my office features a large working space ( 120 x 120 cm ) by putting both tables together into a square. It is nice as i have enough space to do crafts like sewing on one side and computer / admin-related stuff on the other. The sewing side still needs a stool, which i still need to purchase though.
In exchange of the Expedit unit i had before, i “hacked” some IKEA kitchen wallcabinets into a sideboard ( approx. 40 cm deep ), using two 60 cm units and a 40 cm unit and some chrome feet. On top i will put a wooden board eventually to cover the visible screws.
As my bedroom this room also has a convenient nook which houses a sofa which can be transformed to a guest bed for two. When no guests are there, it doesn’t take too much room as it fits perfectly into the nook.
When i moved from Switzerland to Berlin i donated a lot of my books, those you know you only read once. Part of the books i kept are now on wall mounted shelves above the sofa.
In my office i also feature some of my vintage items such as the JVC TV from the early seventies, old telephones, Grandpa’s typewriter and his old desk lamp.
How do you like it ?
