space for office, pick out a nice desk and chair, or spend some time perfecting the décor. But there is also the outside world and for the lucky few of us, the landscape behind which we work can be just as encouraging. So we’ve collected some offices from around the world which make us highly jealous of their setting. Probably one of the biggest benefits of a spectacular view is that it means you don’t have to worry about decorating your office. If you know your space is going to be limited, finding an apartment with a great view could mean that you no longer have to spend time, money, and sacrifice space to needless décor. Your window can be your picture frame. In fact, keeping furniture and décor minimal will only help to accentuate a stunning view. And if it was up to us, we’d always take beautiful scenery over an IKEA picture or West Elm elephant sculpture that everyone else has. 01. s.yume in Vancouver 02.
