Every new school year deserves the perfect spot for those late-night study sessions! So here are a few options for making that corner functional and affordable.
Knockout: JCPenney has a Lattice Computer Desk that will make any student want to do their homework. Available in black or brown mahogany and sporting a pull-out drawer for storage, it will cost you $465 with free shipping.
Knockoff: Or, you can pick up Overstock’s Black Computer Desk. It’s almost identical to the knockout, except they swap out the pull-out drawer for a keyboard drawer with flip-down front to make it more computer friendly. And it’s only $183.99 with free shipping!
Savings: $302.11 or 65%
Knockout: Next, your student will need the perfect chair to go with this lovely desk. Shop at Wayfair.com and you can pick up the Molded Plastic Side Chair with Dowel-Leg Base from the Herman Millar Eames DSW series. But the black chair is a special order and comes with a non-returnable price tag of $399 plus free shipping.
Knockoff: Again, Overstock.com beats them out with their Black Plastic Side Chair with Wooden Base. This black version goes for just $124.99 with free shipping.

UPDATE: Overstock is currently sold out of these Black Plastic Side Chairs.

This chair sells for $119 with $11.49 shipping for a total of $130.49. At this new price, you’ll still save $268.51, or 67%.
