New day, new digs for The Honeycombers! Finally the Telok Ayer shophouse address is ours and we’re owning it. Here’s the ‘before and after’ of our office makeover, with a little help from our friends at CB2.
Talk about making an entrance!
Neon lights and bright colours keep our pencils sharpened, so to speak. And we also want everyone to be greeted with a touch of signature Honeycombers. Don’t ask what we’ll do with the next courier who asks “Is this Honeycombers?”!
This fab bespoke neon light is from E&A Interiors, where British design duo Chlöe Elkerton and Elizabeth Acland run the full gamut of interior design services. The fun and versatile Acapulco Multi Lounge Chair ($439) and Division Neon Pink Pillows ($74.95) from CB2 pop big time under the warm glow of the sign, also complemented by our vibrant Bonnie & Neil tiled wall.
Our sitting area: from sad to fab
About that old couch in our sitting area: it looks (and actually is) comfy but admittedly boring. To liven things up, we got a pair of retro-cool rattan armchairs and the Neptunes Tables Set, a pair of side tables in vibrant azure hues from CB2, for an extra dose of happy colour.
Vertical space isn’t left out, either. On the wall are CB2’s handy Dot Coat Hooks ($18.95) to add dimension to our walls and give us a place to hang our jackets.
Happy colours = better productivity
The highlight of our office makeover has to be the meeting room. Previously a cold and uninviting space with hideous lime green chairs (there, we said it), the room was in dire need of CB2’s magic touch. The ugly furniture was tossed out and in comes a spankin’ new Hearty Table, mood lighting in the form of the Roxas Pendant Lamp ($399), and a set of café-style metal chairs. Ta dah!
With a fresh lick of paint to finish, our meeting room – in fact, our whole office – is an awesome home away from home.
