If you’re an entrepreneurial crafter, you probably owe Etsy a muffin basket. We thought Etsy’s offices would be one giant yarn-bomb experiment, but we’re impressed with their elegant, collab-friendly office spaces. The open floor plan and exposed brick add to the offices new york vibes and inspire working without a desk.

Yes, there’s a big “swoosh” – it’s on the rooftop. But besides the signature swoosh, there are little nods to their sports origins, like the mosaic of Michael Jordan in their cafeteria. Nike also boasts an open-concept office space. And are very similar to the same architectural findings as their high-end boutique stores.

3. Airbnb Headquarters, San Francisco

Airbnb has revolutionized how we travel, and make it possible to stay somewhere other than a hotel – and their workspace reflects this. The meeting rooms look more like camping tents than office cubicles. A living wall of green plants is both stunning and helpful for interior air quality.

4. Apple Park Headquarters, Cupertino

The spherical building has been top secret for some time now. It’s finally complete — and the views and office design are breathtakingly minimalist. Rumor has it some employees are uncomfortable with the sparse and open office spaces. But the lack of visual clutter is probably incredible for unleashing your creative side, distraction-free. The organic yet minimalist furniture was created by Naoto Fugasawa.

5. Beats by Dr. Dre, Los Angeles

They may be owned by Apple, but they definitely don’t look like it. Gold stairwells and lacquer red meeting areas are just a few of the tricked out office design features in this cool office space. Two industrial buildings were renovated to create the space where audiophiles and hipsters come together.

6. Google Offices, New York City

Google has offices around the world, and they’re all pretty creative. In fact, Google’s Zurich, Switzerland location took real ski gondolas and converted them into hanging cubicles. But the NYC location might feature the coolest office design, complete with hammocks for “hanging” out. Tech companies are famous for their perks. This bright and sunny space with hammocks is a unique one.

7. Amazon Corporate Headquarters, Seattle
