When we left for Barcelona, we moved all our furniture into storage and vacated our apartment here in Toronto. To minimize the cost of storage, Alan and I cleaned up our apartment and got rid of anything we didn’t really want to keep. One of the things that went was an Ikea table that I used as a desk. I figured I didn’t really need a desk since I do most of my work in my carrel anyway. That reasoning turned out to be a bit flawed. Every once in a while I bring a bit of work done and we end up having all sorts of papers and books on the dining table, the coffee table, the couch… The place is a real mess! So we decided that it was about time I got my own desk.
Since we wanted to put it in the living room, I wanted a desk with a glass top. Our coffee table has a glass top and I didn’t want to take away too much of the feeling of space in the living room. After a bit of browsing, I found the perfect desk at Structube:
Now all I need is the chair to go with it…
PS: we used Autoshare for the first time to pick up the desk. We went on the web, placed a reservation, walked outside, crossed the street, took the car, drove to the store and brought the car back within 40 minutes. For one hour it costs about 10$ (after taxes and all). No gas costs. We were very happy with it!
