Earlier this year Andrew gave each department the challenge of decorating their own common spaces after we moved to our new corporate office location. The hard part was deciding what theme to choose and what pieces to use. All the departments are very different and the challenge really brought out the individuality within each.
Human Resources turned one of their offices in to the dream room. They created this space to be as serene as possible, because they want employees to feel comfortable when they come to speak with them. Our merchandising department decided to go with a global theme. The two buying/design teams chose items from their respective countries: China and India. Marketing chose a more rustic look with natural wood shelving carts and oversized chairs for a comfortable escape from their desks. The creative department selected one of our large dining room tables as a centerpiece for the space where they can come together to work or to eat, just like they were sitting at their own kitchen tables.
We heard a rumor that a contest was supposed to be held to determine which team had the best design, but a winner has not been picked yet. Maybe you can help us decide!
