Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Create a Customized Office Look Without Built-Ins
If you love the look of built-ins but are working with freestanding pieces, create a tight, balanced and symmetrical grouping. If this office only had one of the taller units and the chest against this wall, the room would look lopsided and the furniture pieces would feel more like clutter than organization. By using two of the taller units, flanking them tight on both sides of the chest, and then using a mirror that perfectly fills the gap and is taller than the two side units, this designer has created an attractive and substantial arrangement.

We all need a little inspiration sometimes, so don't forget to give your workspace a much-needed personal touch. But be sure not to go overboard here, as too many tchotchkes will make your desk feel crowded. If you're unsure, take a picture of the space (pics are helpful for seeing things more objectively) and remove extraneous items.
