Default furniture recommendations for 002

I've been using ProTools for a couple years, and personally own an Mbox. The radio station I work at wants me to look into setting up a production suite based around a 002. Does anyone have recommendations for furniture (consumer or professional) that works well with the 002? Ideally, I'd like to have some rack space both below the desk (maybe even somehow acoustically isolated if that's where the PC had to go...) and maybe even just 4U or so above the desk. I'm not sure yet how to place monitors.

This will also be an interview room, so it'd be ideal if it had some space on the opposite side as well, though right now I'm thinking most consumer desks aren't made that way.

Thanks for any advice!

Cool stuff, a little spendy but worth it IMO.

I bought this one at GC a couple years ago for $400:

It much cheaper to build your own if you can.

Thanks for the info and suggestions. The boss has told me to name a price and he'll see about the money, so I'm also going to look into real broadcast furniture, from the likes of wheatstone, harris, etc. But if you have any more, I welcome them.

And I'm not sure about building my own. We're (hopefully) going for a professional look that will last a long time, because this will be used for multi-person interviews.

Thanks!

We used the Harris furniture for all of our ProTools edit suites. Expensive, but nice. I use the Argosy desk at home. It's modified from the "2 O2R" state to fit what I need. 002Rack, keyboard, my mic pre's etc. I got a killer deal on it (like, $200) from a friend, so it made sense.
IF I WERE BUYING:
I would suggest the Argosy "Dual 15" workstation setup. It's kinda nice. some rack, nice ergonomic space....

I've got one of the desks from these guys, and it's built like a tank. I really like it.

Is it true that Kelly moonlights as Roy on the Robin and Maynard show? =)
