Feng Shui By Fishgirl often talks about the Command Position. No, it’s not the one in 50 Shades of Grey novel. The Command Position is most frequently referring to the placement of your desk or your bed but it can also refer to how you are situated in a restaurant, too. The idea is to place your back to a wall so that you can have a clear view of the entry door to the room. This way you are least vulnerable to someone coming up and surprising you. You are in command of the room. The photo above from ApartmentTherapy.com is a good example of this. The only thing that makes this particular office a little weak is that the back is facing a window instead of a solid wall. But overall the design of the space is pretty good. And one can always put the blinds down to create a solid wall effect when sitting at the desk working.
