You know what they say…you only get one chance to make a first impression, and we are firm believers in this!

Your reception area is a perfect place to showcase your company so the Ian Smith team at West Brom have treated themselves to a brand spanking new reception area to welcome our customers. After installing so many new and fantastic reception areas and office re-fits we were getting far too jealous and knew it was about time we spruced up our own. And haven’t we done just that!

Our main design aim was to ensure that the space was transformed into a welcoming, exciting and stimulating space – whilst remaining relaxing, optimistic and a practical meeting point. We knew we wanted the design to reflect our identity and personality, after all, it instantly tells our visitors and reminds our employees who we are and what we stand for.

We want the customer to feel like they are a part of our company, instantly at ease and comfortable – not sitting on out of date, dull and uninspiring furniture whilst staring at our old trade counter.

You, our Customers, are part of our brand and you have helped us build our identity and we therefore hope you enjoy the new space and see how everything, from the splashes of colours on the walls and the fantastically textured (and practical!) flooring, is a reflection of our approach and values.

Our Reception desk is a beautiful bepsoke piece of furniture and we hope to inspire you with our stylish, modern, mis-matched seating which is creatively shaped and most certainly unique! This area also includes the ‘Smith’ chair (I wonder why!) and the amazingly comfortable ‘Columbus’ sofa by ‘Connections Seating’. We invite you to come in and pick your favourite and join us for a coffee any time.

You may also find your eye drawn to the piece of typographic wall art, created by our talented in-house Graphic Designer. We then simply printed the artwork onto a self adhesive vinyl and had the simple task of attaching it to smoothly to the wall… Let’s just say that a half an hour task took Adam and Nicole almost six hours to get right! However, we got there in the end and the artwork announced our quietly confident motto: “Welcome to the HQ of the best office supplies company in the world (Just ask our customers!)” and from the second you walk in the door, we hope you’ll agree.
