Staging A Business – A Hollywood Advertising Agency Office Makeover
This week I was called to makeover a Hollywood advertising agency office.
I was given 2.5 days to shop and install new furniture, artwork & accessories for the reception area, conference room, kitchen, a big open workroom with 8 computer stations, hallways & restrooms. In addition, one office was converted into a lounge/game room.
This Emmy Award winning agency, is bidding against some “big boys” for some exciting new clients. They wanted to make over the look of their offices to better reflect their abilities and talent.
As you can see, I replaced the mixed chairs (that sent mixed messages), moved a movie poster (into the game room) and “requisitioned” 2 mirrors from other rooms to give the conference room a sophisticated “we’ve got it going on and we can handle anything you throw at us” look.
Adding a beautiful succulent arrangement and a few well edited mid-century pottery pieces to the entertainment center, ties the room together.
I closed off a door at one end of the room to give us more useable space to create the game room/lounge.
The two black leather sofas were repurposed from the entry and the conference room, as was the coffee table. The book shelf was moved to the opposite end of the room, and a large painting was used to hide the second door. The movie poster from the conference room was moved into this game room where its more appropriate. A 60″ LCD TV will be installed tomorrow. The repurposed coffee table supplies lots of space for the TV, gaming consoles, and various other electronics.
The reception area was rather uninspiring before it was staged by Moving Mountains.
Now its tastefully furnished with some personality and fun pops of color.
Here’s another shot of the reception area:
This is just one example of what this Los Angeles home stager can do with a modest budget and a tight schedule.
