Image from French by Design I've been thinking about office design a lot lately. But I'm not thinking fax machines and cubicles and worker bees crammed-in like sardines. I'm talking about decorating the office intelligently. Making a space that induces calm, creativity and productivity. Image from Femke Pastijn As you can see above, bringing nature into the office is easy and a great way to maintain morale. The more outdoor-oriented among us might want to consider the cooling and calming effect of  modern LED fountains . Image from French by Design Contrary to logic, a comfortable office isn't about having lots of space. As you see both above and below, work stations are stacked on top of one another. Open sight-lines and ample sunlight help keep the claustrophobia away.  Image from Tyyli & Koti You may have noticed the backless counter stools in a some of the pictures above. Often stackable and always stylish, these designs maximize space and minimize visual clutter in the work place.

I did that deliberately to illustrate that a comfortable, zen-like office isn't about how much you spend. The well-designed office is all about how well you plan your space.  Images: French by Design , Femke Pastijn , Tyyli & Koti
