40 Small Business Offices

From Owl-Centric Offices to Sparse Industrial Workspaces

— September 4, 2014 — Art & Design
In the modern economy, the startup ranks supreme, which has prompted small business offices to be an extension of that same energy. Here, we see a collection of exquisite examples of how small business offices are expanding horizons through everything from structural design to furniture choices to create a space that's appropriate for a digital workforce.

A shift towards satellite employees, at-home offices and freelance workers has lead many to believe that the physical office space has seen a decline. While is this indeed true, we're still seeing companies pay a distinct attention to the way the brand is perceived; while it's true that the majority of the work in small business offices can be done elsewhere, it's still necessary to have an appropriate space to meet with clients in.
