Help me "settle" into my graduate student office! I try to make myself more comfortable by bringing an electric kettle and tea bags. I also put a pair of slippers there. What else should I so that I can "settle in" the way I do in my office at home or in a coffee shop?

I recently got access to an office that I share with one other grad student. There is only one desk and a really comfy couch. I brought in a folding TV table so that one of us can work sitting on the couch.
I've been trying to work there, but can't seem to "settle in" the way I do in my "home office" at home or in a coffee shop. Are there any other ideas for making the space homey/comfortable? Would it help if I have my own desk (which will cost money, but it's doable)?
I also kind of HAVE to use this space during the day, because there's construction going on in my building, and I can't work in my home office due to the noise.
