So we were intrigued when we came across Fuzzco's new offices, which were designed in collaboration with Thompson Young Design. "We are a branding agency, so naturally we have strong opinions about how our brand extends into our space," Rice says. "The way we work, the company we keep, the working purpose of the space, and the objects we covet all informed the choices we made in our space. It's a functional sculpture of rich textures in stark arrangements." Recreate the look in your own workspace with the following elements:
Above: Fuzzco headquarters, located in a small stuccoed building on Spring Street, has served as laundromat, church, candy store, and hat shop.
Above: A waiting area features an unexpected dash of purple.
Above: The wood wall was salvaged from an industrial building in Kentucky by woodworker Michael James Moran. Note the arrows whimsically positioned on the concrete floor.

Above: Spruce wood sourced from contractor Chip Adams and yellow cage lights along the wall by Peyton Avrett.
Above: "We tried to keep and reuse a lot of the building's original materials," Rice says. The black porcelain door knob is reused from a renovation at 141 Spring Street in Charleston. For something similar, consider the Black Porcelain Door Knob; $26 at Rejuvenation.
Above: Custom wood cabinetry warms the otherwise all-white communal kitchen (stay tuned for an upcoming Steal This Look devoted to the Fuzzco kitchen).
Above: A collection of wood animals marches across a steel beam.
Above: Safely Caged yellow cage light cover; $1.00 for a pack of 3 from American Science & Surplus.
