How we made our office entryway attractive, fun, and comfortable while also creating a relaxing lounge for team members and clients for around $500.
Now that we’ve completed our move into our new studio space, we can focus on updating and outfitting our new office with our own Ghost Productions sense of style. Because our entry way is the first thing that our visitors will see we, decided to start there and make our waiting room a creative space. As with any office update it is important to begin by determining, needs, realizing assets, and setting a budget.
Because we are Ghost and because we desire function and fun over convention, we decided to do away with the standard waiting room chairs and opted for something much cooler. It just so happens that a local company produces these incredibly comfortable and durable hovering chairs in a variety of colors. Check them out at skychairs.com. So we bought a variety of colors and hung them from the beams we made a few days earlier.
Sky Chairs in assorted colors: $90 x (4) = $360
