IKEA's Poang chairs are some of the most comfortable I've ever owned, but if it's a portable workstation you need and not a comfy chair, this IKEA hack may be right up your alley. Just turn the chair's wooden frame on its back, screw in a couple of wooden supports for your monitor and peripherals, a few casters on the bottom, and you're all set. The frame holds a surprising amount of weight, and the casters let you wheel your computer anywhere in the room it needs to go.
According to Trashfilia, over at IKEA Hackers, you'll need a pair of wooden bases or supports to rest your computer and its peripherals on, but once they're screwed into place, you even have room below the desk for a basket to hold cables, peripherals or anything else you might want handy at your desk.
If the end result looks a little low to the ground for you, it probably is — the final product is shown with a repurposed car seat as the desk chair at the link below, which looks comfortable and is definitely original (also on casters to make it easy to get in and out of the workspace!) but ultimately it might be a little low for regular use. We could see it as a great and sturdy portable desk or drawing table for a child, though, if using it for a workstation isn't right for you. What do you think? Space saving furniture hack or too uncomfortable-looking for your tastes? Share your thoughts — and potential fixes for the setup — in the comments below.
