There are some good ideas and images here. I've worked at home for the past 12 years and cannot imagine being back in a "real" office. My desk is a table made from an ancient elm that fell in a storm. What it lacks in drawers and storage is made up for by its history and patina. For storage, I just stay away from anything that really looks "office-y" (metal filing cabinets and desks), and use an armoire, wooden crates and baskets instead. But like sclawson, I must have a quality ergonomic chair, which I will soon get re-upholstered. I'd post pictures but we are remodeling and right now the only office I have is my laptop, anyplace I can put it!
