Coworking Business Tips

Be inspired by these coworking space design interiors

Interior design can have a powerful effect on people. The way a space looks and is laid out can quite literally make or break its effectiveness, especially for coworking spaces. 

Coworking spaces are the front line of productivity aesthetics. And each space sets out to convey its brand, its culture, and the spirit of the members it hopes to attract — all with design, furniture, and flow.

Coworks users represent a wide array of styles and designs, and we wanted to spotlight a few. Each has a unique approach to enhancing a culture through office planning and interior design.

Holly Springs is one of three locations for Thrive Coworking (formerly Coworking Station), and each looks slightly different. This location is in a new downtown corridor of mixed use retail and residential. The space leverages a use of industrial elements like sliding doors and exposed ductwork, soft furnishings like comfy couches and throw pillows, and frosted glass to allow outer office light to find its way into the interior.

The Koreatown location of Ethos Society was designed by world-class firm Gensler. The design team describes the overall approach as follows: “The space evokes the client’s dreamer spirit with its lighter, dreamlike state-inspired color palette and saturations that transition from light to dark. Infused with hospitality-inspired finishes, as well as airy and dreamy details such as freckled terrazzo, Ethos Society’s bespoke coworking space features high-end furniture with a design that nods to the lighter palette and aesthetics of Los Angeles as a creative hub.”

Creative design ideas for your coworking space

As we went through the visual tours of Coworks customers, we did find many commonalities. Though presented with unique design elements and aethetics, often coworking spaces include the following elements:

  • Areas for open, collaborative conversations
  • Private spaces for individuals or one to one discussions
  • Booths or pods for phone calls and video conferences
  • Variable spaces that call for creativity: lofts, pillow dens, sittable stairs, even slides make for fun experiences that allow thinkers to be more free


Coworks users aren’t unique in having a specific design approach, but we love to celebrate the coworking operations that use our platform to manage their inventory and connect their members.
