Chief Content Officer of Hearst Magazines Office Makeover
When Kate Lewis was named Chief Content Officer of Hearst Magazines in the summer of 2018, she needed an office overhaul to jumpstart her new role. With mid-century modern serving as her main source of inspiration, the HGTV Magazine editors spearheaded the project by tapping into their industry resources and began the sourcing process. Vendors including Bungalow 5, West Elm, The Citizenry, Oly, Blu Dot, Room & Board, Interior Define and more are feature in the office.
The office is broken into three sections; a living area, a work space and a digital display and storage space. What started as a cold and barren office is now a warm and inviting space. So much so that Kate says “sometimes I’ll come back from a meeting and find my team just hanging out here because it’s such a welcoming space.” The living space features an emerald green velvet sofa, a pair of sapphire blue chairs and a solid walnut coffee table add the homey touch that Kate was striving for.
Functional Yet Beautiful
Opposite of the living space, Kate’s desk and work space is a fresh and tranquil corner featuring neutral case goods and seating with pops of blue accessories like the Bungalow 5 Clipper Task Lamp in navy blue. The killer New York City view is the perfect backdrop for creative meetings!
Kate also gained a practical TV and storage area which features an 82-inch-wide console flanked by ghost chairs and a pair of Bungalow 5 Zephyr brass Table Lamps.
