Not sure what to call this space: a study? an office? a desk? Nonetheless, it ended up being the best surprise of all. Our new staircase in our minds was totally going to dominate the hall but fortunately based on my “floating” design we ended up gainging some serious space under the stairs.
Here we were able to fit the desk that I had originally bought for the Spare Bedroom that couldn’t fit it in at all, as well as a storage ottoman that also didn’t quite make it in that room. The bench can’t be “sat on” but is great for storing extra pillows, cushions and blankets for the outside terrace. And behind it I have discreetly slotted the recycling bags in as there is no real space anywhere else in the kitchen or dining room.
The desk looks amazing with the two Rivieria Lamps (which our electrician was able to connect wirelessly to a switch) and it is big enough to accomodate them as well as have ample space for someone to work on a lap top. It totally makes the space!
