I just got a new chair a few weeks ago, and luckily the armrests go up and down quite a bit, so I should be able to lower them to accommodate a table. It's the rest of my room that is small!
I have a cockatiel cage in the room, along with an air filter/purifier to keep the dust down he produces so that takes up a bit of space. I am thinking something like this:
Should do the trick well enough.
Ah. I have a similar issue as my desk will be under my loft bed, out of range from the base stations, my solution is to just get one of these and putting it in the tracked area for seated games, then folding it up and putting it away when I'm not playing seated games. Though if you're in a different room than your PC, you'll probably have to get USB extenders to do that which is less than ideal.
Really hoping extra base stations become buyable soon after release. I'd love to have just one more for my desk.
I had the same issue with my mopho and ended up buying a lifetime table - it is pretty sturdy, portable, and works pretty well for me. There are a few different sizes if you also want room for a pedal or something else..
I have a similar size space, actually - a 26x18" foldable laptop desk. I usually use either my Chromebook or my iPad, with (when possible), all the books I need in PDF form loaded onto that. (Generally I choose systems where I know the rules well enough not to need much reference.) I also use this for taking notes in a simple text file (using a bluetooth keyboard for typing on the tablet when I'm using that.), plus of course accessing various web pages when necessary (my campaign wiki, the online Game Master's Apprentice, various random generator sites.)
For rolling dice, I have a dice tray that goes next to the laptop/tablet.
I have a couple of clipboards - one for my character sheet(s), another for maps, quick-reference sheets and the like. Or the entire rules for one-page games :-) They tend to go on my lap when I'm not actively referencing them or writing on them. (although there's room on the desk when I'm using just the tablet).
I'll usually have a bunch of index cards as well. These are for things like keeping track of hit points or other relevant numbers in combat, or other quick notes. For games with just one or two PCs, I bought a couple of life point counters of the sort you use for Magic the Gathering. (When running more PCs, I use an index card instead. I could buy more counters, but I think keeping track of which one was for which character more difficult.)
In those instances where I only have print books, I actually tend to put the foldable desk next to my work desk (with my full-size desktop computer and monitors - not actually much space on it for anything else). It's at right angles to the main desk, right next to my office chair, so I can just swivel back and forth a bit. Then I use the main computer instead of the Chromebook, and put the books, dice tray, and papers on the foldable desk.
Rulewise, I mostly play lightweight games - old-school D&D, or OSR derivatives like the Black Hack or Knave (most have a very small page count so it's easy to find stuff even on a tablet), Cepheus Light for a Traveller-type game, GURPS Light, Everywhen... The online GMA is a godsend as an oracle - it even works very nicely on your phone if you want to avoid using a full computer or tablet, and has lots of useful oracles (even more than the cards), including most of the Ironsworn and Delve ones. It's at least one less book/PDF/reference sheet I need to refer to in play.
I looked at quite a few on amazon and it was between this one and this one and I went with the second one. I haven't even tried it yet, I will have to see how sturdy it is.
