Turo member and Travelogue contributor John C. recently opened up a new office and needed to deck it out with some furniture and cool tchotchkes to start settling in.

They also combed Berkeley’s mid-century vintage stores for chairs and interesting accent pieces.

Taking the time to find interesting pieces that would make their new office space feel comfortable and special, John and his crew had a productive, weekday adventure just by thinking outside the big box and taking some initiative.
