  Old  desking and chairs

right my desk is trashed (my own fault mind you)

my foot rest (the printer tray) is beeing proped up by an old cd rom drive and a box. it has holes in too (from when i loose my temper)

my chair. the padding is falling to peices of its starting to annoy me.

anyone recomend any decent places to get furniture prefrebly places that sell desks big enough to get 2 monitors but small enough to get in my room ?

my chair was from john lewis and the desk is from rip off world.

many thanks
adam

My chair is from John Lewis My desk currently has a copy of Harry Potter holding it up on one side hehe (It's not my book btw). John lewis make great furniture, check them out again! I wouldn't bother with the big warehouse type places, homebase etc as the quality is always pretty naff!

My chair is from OfficeMax, chair from Staples.

All my stuff back in England came from Ikea in Lakeside, so just up the road from you... But if I was buying in that area again I'd go here: http://www.green-work.co.uk/silvertown.htm - great bargains including some nice L shaped desks that will fit nicely in the corner of any room and house two monitors with ease - and less than an hours drive from you.

Ikea. I got this desk from there. Pretty good till I put faaaaaaar too much stuff on one side causing one of the legs to collapse. Propped up by a load of books at the moment.

Paid 480 for my rather large Ikea one, custom designed with industrial strength legs to hold all my music equipment - sturdy as a sturdy thing

I had that problem with the few centimetres too long thing fitting my studio together :-/ that's why I ended up with a custom jobby from Ikea... Two straight sections made of birch wood that were about 5ft long and a 1/4 circle joiner, about 3 ft across and made of beech wood to make the L shape. 3 of the heaviest duty legs available and a big metal frame thing to hold it all together.
