5 Points for Designing an Upscale Office

Upscale Office Design

When planning an upscale office design, follow these pointers.

At American Design Associates, we talk a lot about how to design the perfect office that reflects your values and company culture. Today we will be giving you our favorite tips for designing an upscale office that positively reflects the culture of your law firm, financial services agent, business consultancy, or upscale company.

Think Light

White and gray tones are classic minimalist colors that reflect cleanliness, modernity, and an upscale office clientele. Use warm woods to accent the white or add in a pop of color that represents your brand for a sleek look.


Minimalism is a growing trend in homes and in offices, as people downsize and reduce their clutter to showcase the beautiful classic pieces they own. Instead of thinking an upscale office means flashy gold and silver, look for simple clean lines and flawless technology integration.

First Impressions Matter

All clients will see your reception area as their first impression of your company and office, so make sure that it accurately reflects your upscale office design aesthetic. Even the seats that you choose will give them an impression, so think carefully about using modern couches or low-backed sleek chairs.

Think of Lines and Shapes

While we don’t suggest purchasing deliberately showy furniture, don’t be afraid to choose bold geometric shapes or interesting lines to showcase throughout your upscale office. Things like that can become conversation pieces that put you and your guests at ease.


Above all else, quality is the most important thing you need to consider when designing an upscale office. Don’t purchase cheaply made pieces that might break when a client sits down. Instead, look for beautiful furniture that is built to last for decades. Timeless style and great construction will always be a better reflection of your company than temporarily fashionable and cheaply made options.
