Time for an Office Glow Up
At ISCG we design inspiring workplaces for our clients, but we also make it a priority to keep our own workplace exciting. This past year almost every part of our showroom received some type of renovation. New furniture, wallcovering, paint, lighting, flooring, updated new fabric/paint; no space was left untouched in our showrooms facelift.
It’s important to us that we keep our showroom updated with the latest trends. We also, like many of our clients, needed to add some additional workstations due to growth over the last two years. Tasked with the same challenges we deal with on a daily basis, we set to reconfigure some areas to accommodate more workstations without taking away from the much needed social spaces throughout the office.
The focal point of our renovation was the transformation of our old lobby space into our Customer Experience Center and the recreation of our lobby in our front window space. The Customer Experience Center was created using Haworth’s Enclosed Frameless Glass with a film placed on it to reduce glare and provide privacy. Inside, we combined a 60” touchscreen television equipped with Bluescape software to maximize collaboration, tackboards to display the creativity of our interior designers and a wood feature wall to drive inspiration. Our lobby area is now two inviting spaces that are divided by an 8-foot custom decorative metal wall and a unique pattern of shag carpet tiles, which provides a more ‘resimercial’ feel.

Several budget friendly updates were also used to revive existing products. Fabric seats and ottomans were reupholstered, we replaced chair backs with a new color, and even switched out worksurface tops for a new laminate. We also updated the wallcovering in our café and gave our showroom a new coat of paint. Last January, Michele provided us with “Seven Ways to Refresh Your Workplace on a Budget” and we actually used all of them!
Take a look below at some of the subtle, and not- so-subtle transformations!
