That's insanely expensive... I couldn't justify spending that much...

Hey Sky, what desk set up is that? I looove clean desks and the one I have now just took a swan dive off a cliff due to my being drunk and trying to stand on it to show how strong it (I thought...) it was!

Edit: Btw is that a Func industries mousepad?

All right, here is the stuff you see:

From Ikea:
Vika Amon Tabletops + Legs.
Lack Shelves
Sterilite bins

As for the chair; I have a bad back and this is the one chair that is comfortable for long periods of time. Trust me guys, when you get back spasms from sitting on a cheap chair for too long, you will pay ANYTHING - and I mean anything - to avoid the pain.

They are great for the price and I HATE big mousepads so they fit the bill nicely.

I love your desk, so much space

For the chair, I had one last summer during my internship at E&Y....It's simply an amazing chair!

The main problem I have found with the desk so far is that there isn't much depth so I am forced to spread stuff out laterally. Ikea really pisses me off sometimes since the Vkia Amon tabletop I got is available in long and narrow or short and deep; there is no such thing and long and deep unless you want to get a standard pressboard top. Ugh...

That is exactly why I've been so annoyed lately, I've been trying to find a good set up that I can somewhat choose my layout but nothing at Ikea was working, the desk I have now is long and wide but it's pressboard, and I fell through part of it like i said LOL
