Urban Barn x Botanica: Creating an Inspired Office Retreat

Urban Barn Botanica Creating Office Retreat

Our latest exciting project brings together three things we love: local designers, fellow Canadian brands, and decorating inspiring spaces! After moving into a brand-new office, Botanica Health wanted a comfortable space to spark creativity in their team. Together with interior designer Dexter Dolores, we used trending pieces from our latest collections to design a stylish in-office retreat for the Botanica team!

Modern + Stylish

This thoughtful space started out with stylish seating you don’t typically see in an office. Our Reynolds Sofa is the perfect blend of design and comfort, with mid-century details like tapered wood legs and a single tufted seat cushion that makes room for stretching out or gathering together. Paired with Reynolds is an Urban Barn favourite: the Diablo Armchair. Tapered wood legs and a cool silhouette help Diablo fit right in with this modern office retreat (for a chance to win your very own Diablo Armchair, keep reading for contest details below!)

Natural + Adaptable

The best spaces are adaptable, especially when it comes to getting creative at work. To make Botanica’s new space flexible and fun, Dexter added a trio of our Acosta Jute Poufs. These versatile accents work as footrests or extra seating, and the warm, woven jute adds organic texture that’s right in step with Botanica’s focus on keeping it natural. You’ll see other hints of organic style in the decorative accents Dexter chose, like our Etta, Daleyza and Maddy vases, and Keimi Eucalyptus branches for greenery that never wilts.

Mix + Match

Following a popular trend in home decorating, Dexter took a mix-and-match approach to choosing tables. This is a perfect way to add furniture in a variety of shapes and materials (especially in smaller homes), and in the Botanica space Dexter picked different tables while keeping a focus on pieces that offer style and functional storage. Open in the centre, the Grant Coffee Table lets light flow through the room and adds easy storage. The Mitchell Side Table brings multiple levels with a glass tabletop and oak shelf below, and the Drum Storage Pedestal is a unique side table with tons of storage potential — perfect for stowing away extra office supplies.

Soft + Warm

Layered textiles are the finish touch in this inspired living-room-meets-office space. Dexter kept it warm and inviting by adding some of our favourite accents like the Inala and Jovie toss cushions and the Calliope Throw in ultra-soft chenille. These pieces give the Botanica space tons of texture and personality, making it easy for everyone to get comfortable while they work, brainstorm or take a well-deserved moment to relax.
