an investment in design:

A well-designed office environment is not only an investment in the people who work there, but also an investment in their clients and potential clients.  A group of financial advisors in Anderson, Ohio wanted to update their office space to create a warm and inviting but professional experience for their customers.  Working within the existing floor plan, we focused on the entry, the reception desk, and the conference room, to create updated, functional spaces. 

In the entryway, a vintage, Drexel buffet with a leathered granite top acts as a snack and beverage station for employees and clients.  Above the buffet, vintage financial ads create visual interest and stick to the brand, but aren’t too overpowering for the space.

In the conference room, design details give depth to the overall neutral palette.  Menswear inspired the finishes—a dark conference table, burnt orange chairs with stitching details—and warm elements, such as the aesthetically, functionally, and sustainable carpet tile allow the office to be simple and sophisticated without compromising on style.  The original artwork on the wall, “Bull vs. Bear,” provides an additional branded element in the space, speaking to the dichotomy of the global economy.
