I've been thinking about office design a lot lately. But I'm not thinking fax machines and cubicles and worker bees crammed-in like sardines. I'm talking about decorating the office intelligently. Making a space that induces calm, creativity and productivity.

As you can see above, bringing nature into the office is easy and a great way to maintain morale. The more outdoor-oriented among us might want to consider the cooling and calming effect of modern LED fountains.
Contrary to logic, a comfortable office isn't about having lots of space. As you see both above and below, work stations are stacked on top of one another. Open sight-lines and ample sunlight help keep the claustrophobia away.

You may have noticed the backless counter stools in a some of the pictures above. Often stackable and always stylish, these designs maximize space and minimize visual clutter in the work place.

Lastly, you probably noticed that all the decor pictured has a weathered look. I did that deliberately to illustrate that a comfortable, zen-like office isn't about how much you spend. The well-designed office is all about how well you plan your space.
