Ignore the still-under-construction wall, oversized chandelier and plastic folding table, but check out the great new rug we got from Rugs USA!
Here’s a close-up:
It’s the Treasures ZG09 Persian Vintage Rug and I just love it! It’s so soft underfoot and the pattern and colors are right up my alley.

And I’ve seriously been contemplating the idea of bringing in a wing-backed settee because:
a) Steevenson loves to sit next to me and “work”
b) Kit-Cat loves to sit next to me and sleep
c) the area is wide enough to accomodate one
d) if I use a wide work table (vs. a desk that might not be as wide), a settee wouldn’t look as puny as one chair would
Here’s what that would sort of look like:
(Obviously the that’s not to scale, and please excuse the sloppiness!)
…and, in case you’re wondering, here’s the settee I popped in the picture:
I’d love to find a table that has straight legs at least half way down though. That way, I could attach some kind of spandrel (like this)…
…to the table to make it look more like a desk, and hiding the cord from my computer would be easier too:
I’ve already hit up four local flea markets, but I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for yet. I’ll keep searching though. That’s my favorite part! 😀
