Anyhow, it's here now and I've set it up in one of two spots I thought it'd be perfect for -- behind the sofa. We had a dark-wood console table back there, and it did a pretty good job of looking big and dark -- and not much else.
My idea was installing a desk with a direct line to the TV, so that when it was on, you could more-easily multi-task -- as we often do.
Some evenings, I have brainless work (for work) to do -- so the laptop sits on my lap on the sofa. This might be ergonomically better.
Maybe a puzzle could be done and puzzlers don't feel left out of the rest of the house -- as they often do when on dining room table.
Perhaps a homework spot that's not an eating surface but near the food. And still witness to all the action of the family room.
A sunny spot to work from home during the day.
You get the drift.
We'll see how the rest of the family reacts when they see it.
There's also a Lego table set up in this spot behind the coach, which is temporary. Just an FYI.
