office furniture for public spaces

thisishishouseOctober 18, 2011

Does anyone know of any office furniture that would function well in a family room, or master bedroom?

Our office furniture (desk/hutch, lateral file, bookcase) is currently occupying an upstairs bedroom, which must now be used as a bedroom. In order to do so, we need to relocate our office somehow. There's no other dedicated room to use as an office, and we think our current furniture would either not fit or be grossly out of place in another room.


We looked at a computer armoire, but that's more bulky than what we're looking for.

Is there any compact, functional, home office pieces designed to stealthily blend into an MBR or fam rm?

Just wanted to update. Spent a crazy Saturday last weekend going to ~7 different furniture stores in a 40 or 50 mile circle.

Found some good candidates. These two are sort what we were thinking. They have the file space we need but won't look out of place in a family room. (And if we ever move to a larger home, they could go back into an office)

If anyone's seen similar goods from another manufacturer, please let me know. Thanks!

I would check They have a lot of furniture that would look good in an office and other rooms in your house. I personally like their red leather couches.
