Interaction style — Independent: Facing away from each other is a good arrangement when your need for interaction is minimal. It also works best for anyone who finds themselves easily distracted by the movements of another person. Rolling chairs allow you to conveniently scoot across to the other desk if you need to work on anything together.
Storage: The drawers and cubbies to the side of the desks are easily accessible by either person without disrupting the other.
Phone use: If both of you need to use the phone once in awhile, the farther apart you are the better. If both of you need to use the phone a lot, you aren't good candidates for a shared office. You won't be able to hear yourself think if you're both talking at the same time.
