Office - *Favorite* I like how this combines an office and living room into one room which is what we want. I like the shelving, ladder, room for a sitting area, room for our two sided partners desk, ceiling, window seat. Would need some wall space to hang diplomas. I like the reddish brown wood color. SMA: Agree, this is a good size, but given the finite space available, this size will affect another room
