    Who wouldn't want to spend forty hours a week in this place, with it's cool carpet tiles, fun seating, gorgeous modern lighting and architecture?!

    The best work spaces have somewhere for those who want to mingle can do so, while those who want to work have a more quiet space. Studio O+A designed a communal space that was inspiring and promoted communication among workers.

    Rather than ignored, empty space is designed. This wood platform is perfect for "water cooler" chatting, available for employees coming and going.

    Everywhere you look, details are considered, from the carpet design to the magnificent lighting.

    It's not so unusual for great design to go hand-in-hand with employee happiness.

    Especially when you're allowed to bring your pet, bike all the way to your office and lounge in beautiful seating!

  • Divide a Room with Style


    Whether you have a large space that needs to be organized or a small space that needs defining, stylish room dividers are not easy to design. Here's some fun ideas.

    Room divider ideas for modern style.

    This modern home above seems to have distinguishable rooms, but just wanted a little more separation between the stairs and the dining room.

    The key to this divider is that it still allows you to see the beautiful dining room, including the cool pendant lighting, while just adding a bit of privacy to the dining area.

    Maybe you want something that can separate rooms entirely, but easy to remove as well? This linen drapery in the middle of the two spaces is a beautiful solution.

    While the actual window treatments are white and allow the lighting in, the room dividing drapery is a bit darker, while still staying true to the overall color palette.

     Geometric room divider

    If you're going to use a room divider, may as well have it add to the overall home style. This chic design is modern and geometric like the rest of the decor.

    This design works so well because of the high ceilings and the opportunity to get a good pattern repeat. If the design were something solid, it might be too overwhelming.

    Even if you're looking for a cleaner look, a little more minimal, the arc floor lamp is a great choice in a modern dining room.

    The arc floor lamp is a great way to incorporate metal finishes in a room dominated by wood and warm textures.

    Just be sure to get one with enough arc to keep headspace clear...
