I love MunichMom's suggestion of a corner bench! We have the same issue in our tiny ~925 sq. ft. house; my "office" is part of the dining room, and my husband's "office" is part of the living/family room. I may take MunichMom's suggestion and run with it...
Ideas for Fitting a Workspace into Kitchen/Dining Room? Good Questions

@Marbelous, you're right that it's more work and it might sound like the ideal solution — but beware that if you have to enter it into a spreadsheet every time you bring something new into the house, you might end up piling them up until you "have time" to enter them. Don't create barriers for yourself; make the filing process as easy as possible. Make sure you have filing folders and/or cabinets that you like and enjoy using, in an easily accessible place, and keep the system as simple as possible. For example, if you collect craft patterns, have one folder for sweaters/cardigans, one for neckwear, one for socks, one for quilts, etc. If you get too detailed (long socks vs short socks), it gets harder to decide which folder things should go into. I'd highly recommend looking into David Allen's book, Getting Things Done. You may not like the whole system, but usually people come away with some good ideas they can use. Good luck!
