Thanks to all of you who gave such great suggestions in my search for a work table for my studio! After reading so many great ideas, I realized a kitchen countertop type table was perfect for my needs. Something that worked well at standing height and had a wooden counter top. I ended up getting this one from Ikea…and while it cost more than I had planned to spend, the tons of storage space made it well worth it…
joy, it looks fantastic!!!!
I love it, I want my work space to look like that too. Will you be able to sit by the desk to work though?
Wow, that’s a great solution. I may have to borrow it for my own work area!
Oh wow, I love this. Perfect!!!!
Really great! All that storage that you can see into – fab.
i don’t plan to sit too much in that area. most of the work i do there is when i need to get away from my desk. but i could definitely get a higher stool if i really wanted to sit in that area.
Oh wow. Very cool. I had to link to this post because I WANT ONE TOO!
Nice. Thanks for sharing!
Joy, that looks great! And by the way, I’m totally obsessed with that red Anthro top with the birds on it too.
wow – what a fantastic solution! i need to borrow this idea, joy! thanks for sharing!
yay! it looks great, joy. looove the drawers. 🙂
That looks wonderful. I think I might have to borrow this idea too!
What a great idea – love it.
that’s so perfect!
what an inspiration! I love the board hanging directly above, what a great place to hang ideas and swatches.
So very dreamy!
I dream someday of having a studio large enough for a workspace like that.
Awesome solution — I’m so jealous!
Beautiful, functional, perfect solution! Way to go Joy. 🙂
what a yummy workspace! i love it.
do i spy gocco inks? 🙂
yes, a TON of them! i got a bunch of rare colors on ebay… 😉
congrats joy, this looks great! i’m glad you found something you like. it looks like a magazine ad…you should send this pic to ikea, ha ha!
What’s this called? I want one!
scott, it’s the VARDE..here’s the link..
Wow! Looks great. I want one now too.
and of course now i want one too!
it’s a great solution for your needs. i just want one cos it looks so cool. (won’t suit me though, but absolutely coolll)
congrats on your great find! (and end of search)
I am so jealous of all that draw space – I love organizing things and this one is so perfect!
Congrats on finding exactly what you wanted!
Looks great! What did you use to make the drawer labels?
I want one!
That really is the perfect solution! i believe furniture only look good if people use them to the fullest, and this looks really good! Nice colour coded labels, very neat. You must be so relieved.
oh! looks fantastic! i want to work there…
I’m going to join the chorus of this amazing and looks great. I’ve been looking for something to put on one end of my dining room (currently the d.room table is my workspace) and I feel like this may work. Gonna have to do an IKEA run and check it out. Congratulations on finding something!
Loving your studio…it inspires me to keep mine more organised!
i just drew the labels on my computer in illustrator, printed them on a hi-quality heavy stock, and attached each with double sided tape.
Are you able to sit at it comfortably? I really love it, especially with the storage but I’m trying to figure out if not being able to put my legs underneath as I sit would be a problem.
Great work space. looks so professional my area looks like a kiddy craft room.(lol)
i love that. looks so good! so much classier than my (still beloved) elfa unit…
I need one like this!
Joy, may I ask where you got your idea board? I really want to get one but I don’t want the plain cork boards! 🙂
I’ve seen Värde in use as a “closet” in a bedroom in one of the IKEA magazines and it looked great – but your setup is adorable! I’ve been looking at this at my local IKEA store over and over again, but it sure is no bargain … love it!
where did you get the inspiration board above your work table?
