Boosting happiness and productivity lends to the success of any business so, whether you work from home or commute to an office, we have a few tips and tricks for your workspace that will get those creative juices flowing!

Let There Be Light

When setting up your office, look for a space with windows that serve up ample natural light. Direct access to natural elements right outside your door automatically boosts creativity and increases focus.

Whether you’re lucky enough to have a bank of windows with spectacular views in your office or not, you should always incorporate ample task and accent lighting through the use of table and floor lamps; you can thank yourself for that extra energy kick every time you flip a switch!

We love using stylish bins for our overflowing fabric and rug samples and we hang drapery to conceal shelves that are currently holding accessories for upcoming installs (sneaky, sneaky).

Shelves keep you organized while also putting a few of your favorite pastimes and hobbies on display – for those long days at the office when you’re in need of a few good vibes. We incorporate built-ins whenever possible, but a solidly crafted bookshelf will do the trick nicely!
