“Coffee tables, side boards and bookshelves scream to be styled. It is amazing what you can pull together from the items in your own home. No need to go shopping for knickknacks; try shopping in your home first,” suggests Ana Cummings, the owner of ANA Interiors. Pulling off this tip is all about having the arrangement look intentional. In all honesty, the items you put on these surfaces aren’t as important as how you display them. Do your best to lay out your items in groupings, stick to odd numbers and be sure to vary the pieces in terms of their direction, size and color. If need be, you can always look for some design inspiration to help you get started.
The modern workplace has been changing for years. Companies have hunted for ways to maximize their square footage while creating spaces that attract top talent and motivate them to do their best work. At the same time, today’s workforce has been demanding greater flexibility. Across the country, companies have been swapping cubicles for open floor plans and conference tables for ping pong tables. Today’s office furniture can’t just be functional; it needs to also be fun, comfortable and versatile.
It makes sense, then, for a leader in office design (like Steelcase) to look to a leader in home decor (like West Elm). By mirroring what we love about our homes in our workplaces, we might just fall in love with where we work, too. And employees who like where they work are more likely to show up on time, be creatively stimulated and stay in their positions long-term. In short, investing in the products of this new Steelcase and West Elm partnership could help companies keep turnover down and build their best teams.
