The rug is gorgeous.

Honestly, your office is begging to sound pretty cluttered, and I find clutter, well, cluttering.

I go to second hand stores a lot looking for wood furniture to refinish, and there are often overstuffed chairs. Make sure you give them a good sniff before you decide to buy though, as sometimes they've been in someone's damp basement or a favoured object of a male cat. Lift the cushions, turn them over, etc. You can make slip coveres very easily - or if you don't sew, maybe a friend who sews could make them for you. They are so easy.

Books - what you put on your shelf speaks volumes about you (he he) to those who read. And whatever you do, my dear stranger, don't put anything there that you haven't read and that you don't remember fairly clearly. Don't we analysands just love to test our T's?

Clock - the most simple and unobtrusive is my choice. Nothing that draws attention to itself. ANd yes, within sight ot the T too. my T signals we are out of time by glancing at the clock. It's subtle and easy to do.

I have a hanging Korean bell at home. It has a beautiful tone. Do you want religious things?

My honest opinion is that you are planning a false space, that it needs to evolve a little, without planning. I mean, unless you are going to do the Office Without Personality like psychiatrists often do, planning like this seems as though you are creating a personage - and maybe you are - but I wonder what it would be like if you just went with the essentials at first, and then let things come into your life, and brought things in that you found you (and your clients) needed.

Hope this helps. It's been fun thinking about this.
