We’ve moved into a culture where having an ordinary office just doesn’t do it anymore. We need something unique and fun but also functional. We have taken a virtual look at some of the coolest office spaces (in our humble opinion) that we think could draw inspiration for your own personal office space.
It’s so important to have an office space that you can get creative ideas flowing, you’re comfortable and it’s an area where you can really focus.

Etsy is your one stop shop for all things handmade or vintage. For unique, custom pieces, you can check out this e-commerce website and have access to different pieces from all over the world. It’s a great place for creative individuals who have the opportunity to sell their creations but also for consumers, who are able to purchase really cool, different items that you won’t be able to find in-store.
Why We Love It: This space is beautiful for so many reasons and I think it really showcases the mission of Etsy itself. Etsy is for all things creative, and their headquarters really embodies this with their tapestries, flower-wall garden and hanging ceiling installations.

GIPHY is an online platform that creates and produces digital content. If you’ve ever sent a text, WhatsApp message, posted on Twitter, and even more, there have been plenty of times where individuals have used these animated, silent, moving photos, known as .gifs to really show how they’re feeling. Gifs are a great way to make a conversation/emotion/comment about a particular topic much more interesting. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and giphy really makes it true.
Why We Love It: The same way that Etsy’s headquarters embodies their brand and what they do, Giphy’s headquarters is the same. Their headquarters is a very colourful, open concept funky space. They make use of there offices to provide a fun, non-traditional collaborative space. When you look at some of the rooms at their office, it doesn’t even look like you’re at work with their comfy couches and cool colours.
3. LENCIONI CONSTRUCTION
Location: San Carlos, California

Their goal is to bring their clients vision and highest aspirations to life through creating real-life and livable master pieces. The houses that they work on and create are absolute masterpieces, and their office really amplifies that message of modern beauty in physical buildings. Lencioni Construction hired architecture firm, Feldman Architecture to complete the interior design of their new headquarters.
Why We Love It: This office space really lives to the message of ‘modern luxury’. They use so many different architectural and construction elements, with the overall industrial vibe and the use of exposed building materials throughout the space. When looking at the photos, you’re just absolutely mesmerized by the beauty of the interior space and all of its unique elements.

Another headquarters based in Toronto is home to all things beauty; COTY beauty is the parent brand of many subsidiary brands.

COTY is not limited to one beauty product but a whole line ranging from fragrances, cosmetics, skin care, nails, both professional and retail hair care products.
Why We Love It: Since COTY is related to all things beauty, their dedicated office space really showcases their love and passion for glitz and glamour. They have taken their spin on a traditional office space and have beautified it with select wallpapers, chandeliers and exquisite furniture. They also showcase their product lines and use it as beautiful accent pieces to the space.
