Work Wonders: Step Inside the Of a Kind Offices—and See Where We Got Our Stuff
Back when Claire and I dove into Of a Kind full-time—um, three and a half years ago, somehow—we worked from our apartments. There were boxes crammed into our closets, packing tape stuck to our kitchen tables, and interns asking for advice about their Hannah Horvathian dramas from our sofas. One co-working space and two sublets later, we have an office—in a historic, cast-iron building in Manhattan’s Financial District—that we’re seriously proud of. So come on in and check it out right this minute. —erica
So sunny and airy, right?! That’s one of our very, very favorite things about the space—especially helpful since we do all of our photo shoots from our HQ (using only natural light).
Claire and I sit at a couple’s desk. Which makes sense because we spend more time together than we do with our significant others. Our Wolfum tray comes in handy in a very big way.
Newest addition: Cheery watercolors by Claire’s Grandma Shirley. They make a fine substitute for Zoloft on rainy days.
We got ourselves some custom Caroline Z. Hurley linen curtains—that make the ceilings feel even higher than they are.
This is where the other three members of Team Of a Kind—Keely, Michelle, and Katherin!—hang. These BluDot tables are really excellent, and they come in a few sizes, too.
Because we’ll take denim any way we can get it.
Having a West Elm couch = life-changing. And not only because we can throw ourselves on it when we just can’t with the world.
One of the big goals with our space: to get organized—like, for realz. These Eames Hang-It-Alls are excellent for managing samples of oversize editions…
And these (um, $5) clothing bars from Ikea are killer for clothing,
We aimed to keep the the furniture neutral, and we let the art and the greenery on our make-shift plant walls (rolling storage from West Elm) do the talking.
How’s this for a reminder to not take things too seriously? We wish we made this pom banner ourselves, but we actually got it from the Etsy seller Napkin. It looks so dang happy next to our Of a Kind calendar.
