Who: Homepolish 
Where: New York, NY 
What: 12,000 sq. ft. Loft



Summary: Redesign of an Interior Design Firm's New York HQ. Lounge + informal meeting spaces were created to address the office's multitude of working styles.

We believe in connecting with our customers wherever they are—at home, at work and in the world. west elm WORKSPACE brand offers contract office furniture that’s durable enough to stand up to a high-traffic workplace without compromising our signature modern style. Read on to see how WORKSPACE helped design a new lounge space for the fast-growing interior design startup Homepolish!

As the custom interior decorating firm grew, its office needs did, too. Homepolish set up headquarters in a beautiful 12,000-square-foot loft in Manhattan’s Flatiron district, and the team needed multi-use spaces away from their desks to offer a sense of privacy for client meetings, team breakouts and more. And since the company is all about great taste, they needed their space to reflect that with residentially inspired designs that stand up to a bustling, high-traffic work environment.

In lieu of traditional conference tables, we created dynamic, all-purpose lounge areas that address these needs while also offering a destination for personal retreat + refresh.

“It was exciting to collaborate with west elm WORKSPACE on our new office because their selection is the perfect mix of style + functionality. There were so many options to choose from, and it made putting the break out areas together a seamless process.”
– Noa Santos, Home Polish Co-Founder + CEO

The loft’s high ceilings, tall windows and white walls provided the perfect blank canvas for layering on rich color and texture. Our deep green Retro Wing Chairs pop against a clean backdrop.

High-performance fabrics from Designtex, the industry’s leading textile design + development innovator and a WORKSPACE partner, provide contract quality while going big on style + comfort.

For versatility, we opted for creating two different “moods” within their space. WORKSPACE’s deep blue Marco sofa, paired with warm saddle-leather Lucas Swivel Chairs, gives a glam nod.

Meanwhile, our Marco sofa in a fresh, white upholstery makes a more natural, organic statement, paired with green Retro Wing Chairs and a textural jute rug.

Artful accents like handcrafted rugs, sculptural brass objects and hand-beaded pillows take the space from sterile to settled.

The result? “More productivity and happier team members,” says Santos. “Designing an office people love—one that feels like a second home—has incredible ripple effects through the entire company.”
