I'm going to be working from home soon and need some furniture to store all my work stuff in, however, I'm going to using my dining room as an office during teh day so need some non officey type furniture to store files/paperwork etc in and have a printer/fax/phone either on or in.

I've looked at ikea and can't see anything that will do the job - the rest of the furniture is oak - already have a sideboard and shelves, but that is more for personal stuff (and don't have anywhere to move this too!)

I have a nice old wooden desk from ebay.

It holds so much yet looks Ok in my living room.

That's one option.

I'm going to use the dining table as a desk so won't need another one - I'd like something where I can stash everything away at the end of teh day so don't have to look at it when I'm not working.

Can you get some smart low cabinets for your filing? IKEA has some nice ones IMO.
Or Habitat?

Have just seen that bureau - very nice!

Am now tempted by a small desk and have seen some small painted metal filing drawers from ikea.
