My cubicleTyping away in tiny gray cubicles is the life for the majority of us that work in offices. I look around mine right now, and, though I've tried to spice it up with photographs and other personal items, it's hard to make a cubicle totally exciting.
But employees at these companies needn't worry about a boring workspace. Check out these five work spaces that have really cool interiors.
Hidden amongst trees, Time Inc.'s Southern Progress building in Birmingham, Alabama, which is home to several lifestyle magazines and web portals, was designed to be integrated with nature. I had the pleasure of working here (RIP Southern Accents), and it really was a beautiful place. I ate my lunch next to a babbling creek streaming from a waterfall every day ... inside. How cool is that?
Speaking of nature, Twitter took its little birdie theme literally, with bird stickers adorning the robin's egg blue walls in their open, modern space. And who wouldn't love a little green deer friend to greet them in the morning?
Pixar is home to some of the most talented and creative people in the world. Instead of cubicles, some employees opt to work in little houses (top), and instead of taking a coffee break, you can take a pool or ping-pong break. Sweet!
Facebook employees have some pretty sick benefits. Not only do they get to work in a cool space, they have a special Guitar Hero room, DJ booth, free breakfast, lunch, and dinner (yes, FREE!), and laundry services. Who wants to move to Palo Alto, California? I can't believe Ali gave this up to be on The Bachelorette!
Oh, how I love Etsy. Not only is the website a treat to browse, with all of its amazing handmade goods, but so is their office space. Products from their members are sprinkled throughout the space, no doorway is the same, and employees work on antique tables instead of desks.
Can your office space compete with any of these? Where would you love to work (based on the interior)?
