Adaptive reuse: defining new purpose for existing buildings
Ever since buildings have been built, they have been repurposed. How can existing building assets remain relevant in a changing world?
Workstories curates beautiful, affordable and quality commercial furniture from a global community.
We love great design – but we love what it can facilitate more. We’re a team of passionate people dedicated to help you create with your customers a unique space to shape their own stories…
Our story began in 2013, when we partnered with the global brand ‘Bestuhl’ to supply their range of task and meeting chairs. They combine high engineering and beautiful design all at an affordable price – perfect for the UK market. Significant investment in stock was made, a 16,000sq ft London warehouse was found and a 5-7 day delivery was achieved; and thus our script was written – bringing to our dealers fresh design-led products that are high quality and accessible to a range of different budgets and project sizes.
However, we couldn’t have started this new chapter without what we value the most – people. Our own team of passionate individuals, in the UK and around the world, alongside the fantastic companies we work with help us create lasting relationships.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we are very serious about what we do and we will support you all the way.
Fast forward and Workstories is represented by 5 amazing brands, carefully curated from across the globe to create a highly flexible and coherent collection of furniture.
We engage in conversation with you and your client, bringing our shared expertise together to create the perfect environment whatever your narrative.
Our story is told through your stories…
