My Style, According to Ikea

We're signing the lease on our new commercial space today - woo hoo! Our new space is much larger than our current one and is basically one big rectangle, so the potential is huge. I've been scouring the web for office layouts and furniture (must get rid of the flourescent lights!) when I came across this Ikea Business Stylefinder. Ikea tells me I'm "Country Original" and even breaks down my style as: 0% Modern, 20% Scandinavian and 80% Country. I guess that's about right. If anyone comes across any great office/working studio layouts - please pass them along! I'm struggling, here.

Have a great weekend!

just a suggestion…break your workspace into sections. it will be easier to tackle. the scheme and colors, etc of each section can play off of each other, but not necessarily match completely. i do suggest a giant work table in the middle and branch off from that. have a administrative section, shipping section, design/inspiration section, production section, lounge section… just to get your wheels turning! good luck!

You can go into the IKEA Locations & they have free design service for businesses. Just ask for the IKEA Business planners.
