The bookcase is from Ikea (Billy) and I can't recommend it enough. It is great! The ribbon storage I bought in the States a couple of years ago (The Container Store) and it is very practical; unfortunately the last time I was in one of the shops in NY they didn't have it anymore. (Only recently I bought more ribbon storage in Storage4crafts.com, a UK based company; the boxes are smaller, the plastic is more flexible, but they do the job for the moment.)
The desk is a big oak corner one from Ikea (Galant) and I am delighted with it - robust, spacious, elegant, with room for the computer, the printer and a big working area - exactly what I was looking for. (I already talked about the altered drawers in a previous post).
Thanks for your comments.
