S. Tipton Studio designed an office-like showroom to walk customers through CBI‘s furniture offerings in Austin, Texas. CBI (Culture-Based Interiors) is a commercial furniture vendor in Austin, TX. They wanted an interior showroom and office space to house their merchandise with a flow that walks the client through an office anyone would want to call their own. With open ceilings throughout the space, we married different planes and angled wood ceilings to create a unique show-stopper for a client experiencing the space.
We worked with a limited budget, but found balance in upgrading certain materials and lighting fixtures. By keeping the buildout simple to showcase the furniture products on the floor, we created a timeless, modern interior to display demountable walls, acoustical solutions and office furniture. We utilized their brand logo, but refreshed the look with a laser cut steel sign wrapping the corner at the reception.
CBI is predominantly known for their value price-points. They wanted to provide a fresh look/brand to expand their goods and marketing to a more high-end client base. Our biggest challenge was presenting an interior that pushed them out of their comfort zone and inspired them to strategically increase their budget and really get excited about their interior.
