Get Inspired by the Chicest Communal Office

Julia Millay Walsh

An interior designer’s office is an important place to show clients that he or she means business—and has style. But for up-and-coming designers, sometimes having a convenient space to welcome clients is not in the cards. In San Francisco, Coupar Consulting—which provides design, marketing, and PR services to interior designers, high-end retailers, and publications—is solving that problem with a communal design place, Tête-à-Tête Lounge in the SF Design Center, where clients can hold meetings or drop by to work for a few hours in between shopping and sourcing for clients. “It’s a great way to bring designers together in a collaborative space, and it means there are always fabulous people in and out of our office all day,” says founder and owner Krista Coupar Piagentini. Much like a gym, the business offers clients monthly memberships, which include a combination of consulting hours and access to the communal space.
