2. Traditional Home
in PennsylvaniaInterior designer Darlene Weir is all about flexible seating options. Although her boys use a traditional chair and desk setup for writing assignments, they do almost all of their reading, researching and memorizing together on a beanbag, opting to break away from the heirloom table passed down from Weir's husband's family. Says Weir, "My boys love drawing and doing math on the floor. Flexibility is a perk of homeschooling, so why not work on the ground once in a while?"Tip: If you opt for a traditional chalkboard, try to find one that's antique — the chalk won't squeak as you write.
