    All Wrapped Up: Home Office

    Back in January I shared pictures of my kitchen table before and after it was wrapped in linen. And I finally got around to taking pictures of my office furniture wrapped in white linen. My office furniture is over 10 years old and while it was all functional I was just ready for a new and updated look. I debated whether to buy a new white desk and filing cabinets but in the end I decided to have all my office furniture wrapped in white linen fabric.

    I also got this new chair from West Elm and my friend and interior designer Phoebe had it re upholstered with a higher quality white leather fabric. The only issue is that this chair is not comfortable to sit on for hours at a time. So for the time being my husband uses this chair and I am back to using my amazing Herman Miller Aeron chair.







    Since I work from home and use this desk often I decided to add a glass top. The glass helps protect the surface from spills, pen marks etc. And I am sure my work colleagues are wondering where my monitor, phone, and work laptop is. Well they have been temporarily moved to the right side of my desk since they don't photograph well!

    Wow! Adore what you did to the linen. I may have to steal this idea instead of spend all the money on new furniture!

    What a brilliant idea. It really does look bright and fresh. So much more satisfying that throwing old perfectly good furniture.

    And you know I've already voted for you! Good luck!

    Genius idea. Still hard to believe that's linen. I'm voting for you now!

    I CANNOT believe that's white linen -- what an absolutely brilliant idea! I love how fresh and clean it looks. And congratulations on your nomination, gorgeous!

    @chic'n cheap living-No that white chair is from West Elm and I had it re covered in a white leather fabric. But it's not super comfortable so I am back to using my old Aeron black (and not super chic) chair! Thanks for the vote!!!!!

    I would NEVER have realized it was the same furniture! It looks so fresh and vibrant. I am totally inspired to make over my work space now (but it's in the corner of the bedroom very unglam and hard to incorp with the rest of the room). Love it!

    April 18, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNoelani
