It’s been busy few days, which will continue for the next next couple of weeks. My parents are here visiting from New Brunswick and we had a full weekend of visiting relatives and getting out on the town. They leave on Thursday morning and then I fly to NYC on Thursday night until Monday night! A whirlwind week to be sure. I always prefer being busy to bored, so I’m not complaining at all. This is my parents first visit in a year. They usually come at Easter, but this year while they were en route here they got word that our town was hit with a massive flood so they had to turn back. The arrived home to 1.5 ft of water in our finished basement. This was in April, and they only just recently got everything cleaned up and renovated. My father moved his law practice to the house a few years ago (also in the basement), and the flood really forced him to re-organize and purge his space. And now that it’s re-organized, it’s much more clear that his office needs some design help. He has a HUGE old desk that takes up 3/4 of the room, and it’s definitely not going to be winning any beauty contests. There are 2 standard office chairs for clients, also pretty ugly, plus a bunch of cabinets and shelving units. I mean, it’s OK, but the space could use some TLC. First thing on the agenda would be to get a smaller more efficient desk. My dad’s style would be best described as rustic and traditional with some nautical twists. He likes furniture with a heavy sturdy look and decor inspired by the woods and the sea. A rustic masculine desk is what he’ll need….but in a size that is more appropriate for his office. So today I’ve rounded up some potential options for a new desk for my dad’s office. Half of these are definitely outside what he would spend on a desk, but I included them anyway so he can see what is available.
