Budget Guide to Winning Workplaces

To state the obvious, the latest issue of LonnyMag is out. Assuming you've poured over this issue as I have, I really loved this "Winning Workplace" feature (page 23-24). I like how they give you the foundation for four well-styled and unique spaces. Of course, my first thought was to recreate the looks with more budget-friendly pieces. So, allow me to present you with: Winning Workplaces: Budget Guide.

Middle Maintenance Total: $532 (!!!)
Black Campaign Desk, World Market, $199
