what is this desk and furniture set called. I want it for our den. - Our den had a fireplace that would be on the right. So the shelving and drawers would be on the left. But the windows would be similar on the wall we have. Are there Houzz pros or whatever in the Toronto, Ontario area? »
Interaction style — Collaborative: Facing each other across a large desk would be a good arrangement for two people who spend most of their time interacting with each other. It can also be a nice arrangement if the two people just particularly enjoy each other's company and are not easily distracted. This would also work better for two people who are not on the telephone much. It would be very uncomfortable for two people on phone conversations at the same time. Storage: In this office the bulk of the storage space is behind one of the desks. A window is behind the desk on the left. If both people need to access the storage often, it could become annoying to the person nearest the storage to have the other person in their space too often. If you both need access to the same storage, try to locate it where both can reach it without disturbing the other person.Lighting: Are you both comfortable with the same amount of light? These desks both have ample natural light from the windows and an equal amount of light coming from ceiling fixtures. Desk lamps would affect the light for both people.
If we have the space, this would be a cool set-up. It includes a view for each person (including the metal fence/gate?), comfortable chairs, hidden storage solutions, goo lighting (dimable, of course), and desktop surface sheen.
