What If You Lived In Your Office?


That’s not an idle question for certain congressional representatives. Arnold’s Office Furniture blogger “sjennings” reveals that many politicos on the hill use their offices as a crash pad most nights. Many own houses or apartments elsewhere (such as in their home state) and don’t want to take on an additional lease in D.C. Others are apparently just too busy to make it home every night when Congress is in session. Representatives most likely to use their office as a living space are those in their first term.

What would your office at work look like if you had to live there full time? Would you store an air mattress in your credenza? Or, would you add a nice leather convertible sofa like the one in the picture above where visitors and coworkers can lounge during the day during meetings? No doubt you’d want to add a mini-fridge in case you got the late night munchies. Tell us what other furnishings you would add if you used your office as a home away from home in the comments.
