pax wardrobes to organise your entire office

some years ago, i remember ikea having home office fittings for the pax wardrobe system. i was so tempted to buy it because i could just close the doors and the office, together with all my mess would disappear. but finally, the thought of working out of a closet was just too claustrophobic for me. nonetheless it is good see that jen has made the pax wardroble office work. [via apartmenttherapy home tech, thanks anna!]

2 pax wardrobes with drammen doors hold jen’s entire office. i would suggest a pax pull out shelf (with a wooden shelf placed in it for thickness) for the laptop and to avoid having to work with the cabinet under her feet.

    wow – love it!

    It doesn’t even seem cramped since you’re in the living room. Oh the ideas that spring to mind!

    This is funny–I was in the container store today thinking about the same problem (I am trying to use a Billy bookcase as a desk as well) and they have a slide out drawer just like it meant for kitchen basket–just put some wood where the basket would be and its half the price at the CT ($15 + wood).

    Jen, I LOVE this! It’s so sleek and modern, and I love how everything can be organized vertically. A couple questions: did you have to drill a hole in the back of the wardrobe for the cords, etc.? Also, I assume you have a wireless router somewhere in there?
