Last night, during a marathon email session, I decided it was finally time to put a decent chair in the white office. The little black stool is fine for quick sits, but that’s it. I didn’t want to put the wheels of this chair (Eames DAT-1, mustard vinyl over black fiberglass; bought for less than $50) directly on the white floor, but I remembered this supercheap IKEA SVEJE rug (can’t find it on their website, but I think it was about $12) I bought a while back but never put into use. Perfect!
I thought it would bother me having the stripes running parallel to the lines in the floorboards, but it’s fine. [EDIT: Um, maybe it’s fine because they’re not parallel, they’re perpendicular. Hello! I need sleep.] And my back is much happier now.
(Is it weird that I’ve been putting prices on everything lately? I know I always like to know how much stuff costs, especially if it’s affordable. I’m a big fan of accessible design.)
