Bespoke Only Designs a New York City Office Worth Returning To

While office spaces have evolved over the decades, shifting from private cubicles to expansive open workspaces, the post-pandemic world is still adapting to its redefined context. As working from home becomes the norm, most people have realized that they can be more productive in an environment of which they are comfortable. Melissa Lee, founder of the interior design studio Bespoke Only, knows this better than anyone. For her newest office space, Spring Office Loft, she utilizes her knowledge of psychology to craft an environment that enhances productivity and workflow through thoughtful spatial design.

Melissa started her practice in 2012 after graduating from Parsons School of Design. Her core design philosophy is the belief that each space is active and organic, evolving as it is studied and reacted to intimately. Spring Office Loft is a reflection of this sentiment, offering both a sense of freedom and openness that will ultimately transform as she grows her practice and her team.

As the name suggests, the office feels more like a home than anything else. Melissa chose to go with residential-forward furnishings, choosing pieces from Sixpenny and Audo versus the familiar case-goods office manufacturers. The office blends to the neighborhood’s classic charm, maintaining original cast iron columns and large windows, combining industrial elements with modern touches. The loft’s rear contrasts with the bright front, inspired by the building’s brickwork with earthy, weathered tones. This area promotes productivity and focus, providing a distinct atmosphere that complements the overall design.

The space serves not just as a workplace but as a canvas for creativity and innovation. Versatile lounging areas and intimate vignettes support entertainment, networking, and collaboration, making the office a hub for creativity. One of the only ways to entice people back into the office lies in crafting a space that is more appealing and engaging than the comfort of their own homes.
