I do not wish to be a bubble breaker yet again…but as someone who has worked a bit with the French press…well…the offices no longer look quite like the first photo. I apologize on behalf of the French Republic.
The dawn of deco :Stunning! Oh, the light too!
Heather, thou spoilsport! Don’t worry we won’t hold that against you, things change over the decades 😉
There is no doubt about it Deco was a style of elegance.I think this explains it continuing appeal.
How lucky that one may take inspiration from this handsome decor without a boundless budget… The designs aren’t fussy but instead emphasize light, line and refreshing textures.
The images are stunningly un-dated, the second in particular. Seeing these, and having recently watched Luhrman’s Gatsby, I wonder what this aesthetic reveals of our modern personality…
Wait, back up… You saw Gatsby, and??? Inquiring minds 😉
we adore an anglepoise and a chinese lacquered screen.
We’ve rewired two – but I believe they’re from the nineteen fifties.
gosh deeply practical!
Just where do you find those? At least press offices in Germany look like cubicle hell… minus the cubicles, so a very loud hell. Luckily I’ve worked in a more pleasent ambience…
Now the recent Smith College speach by Arianna Huffington – the one about wisdom and proper sleep – now makes me wonder what the Huffington offices and nap rooms look like…
Vickie,you might like to look up Eltam Palace England.It a much older building,but has some spectacular Deco Stately Home interiors.
I will! Thank you Mr. E 🙂
I’m not Vickie (thread slip!) but what a great hint, Edward 😉
Vickie,just me writing too fast yet again,but a correction.Its Eltham Palace.Hope you enjoy following up the hint as well beautycalyptique.I have not actually ever visited it despite the fact that I once lived in London.However the pictures are impressive.
Thank you 🙂
Do they have offices? I thought they were primarily aggregators…
they clearly don’t have a Tidying Up Policy for stray wiring (see pix) but we’re dying to know how on earth the person-who-wears-tiger-print gets on with their neighbo(u)r who wears Burberry 😉
Whoa, very cheek by jowl!
they need aggregation monkey trainees to sit somewhere! 😀
no, seriously: they have offices. just crowded and not pretty. all journalistic glamour is long gone, lost in budget wars, fighting for survival, yellowness and fear of The Internet.
I took a peek at the link TeamGloria sent – it has the mess and casual look of a school room.
Look at that gorgeous staircase (stairwell?). One must wear lamè when descending these stairs, n’est-ce pas?
😉 But, of course!
