Apartment Therapy's popular home tours took a different approach by publishing an office tour of San Francisco-based travel company Airbnb. While the company is gearing to move into its new headquarters at 888 Brannan later this year, its current office is nothing short of a design wonderland. The 37,000 square foot space in SoMa "takes many of its design cues from listings on Airbnb." The design of the space was spearheaded by Jenna Cushner, the Head of Ground Control for Airbnb. Cushner worked with Interior Design Fair to "create a space that personified the company and would be open but also contain quiet places for contemplation and meetings."
Like all Apartment Therapy tours, Cushner filled out a Q&A about the space. Biggest indulgence? "Our Eames chairs," Cushner writes. "Charles and Ray Eames' approach to design and collaboration had a huge influence on our company and culture."
