A few weeks ago I was invited into the co-working space, WORK. by The Office Stylist is Sherman Oaks, CA just outside of Los Angeles, CA.
About the co-working space from WORK:
Does your 9 to 5 need a makeover? Do you see yourself taking on the world with style instead of sweatpants? Are you worried about becoming just another frumpy freelancer?
WORK. by The Office Stylist welcomes entrepreneurs and consultants who are ready to get off the couch, out of the coffee shop, and into a chic workspace.
This isn’t your everyday blah-desk, bare-walled office with tap water and stale bagels. Your workspace is beautifully styled from day one, and you will enjoy inclusive luxuries such as fruit-infused and bottled water, a Keurig, a candy buffet, and, of course, super-fast internet.
My co-working experience at WORK:
I wasn’t sure what to expect from a co-working environment as the concept was new to me. The idea really makes sense for bloggers, entrepreneurs, and freelancers who are looking for a more productive environment that forces them out of their pajamas.
Overall, I had a very positive experience at WORK. The space is clean, quiet, and very well decorated. You have all the essentials including personal desks with basic desk accessories, WiFi, coffee & water, a small kitchen, a private meeting space, and bathrooms.
Some things not included in the work space are telephones, printers, fax machines, and locked cabinets. Otherwise, it seems to have everything you’d need! There are a variety of memberships to choose from whether you’d like to come in a few days a week or rent out your own private office. Although, there are only two private offices and they are usually fully booked each month. You’re also about to book out their conference room by the hour. There is only one private conference room at WORK. The memberships come with some allotted conference room time. Check out all the membership packages here.
Probably the best things about WORK are the chic decor, friendly members and staff (the co-founders Sayeh and Alison are awesome!), and ease of access. The office is easy to come and go from and the membership options cater to your needs. I would definitely recommend this co-working space to anyone looking to get off the couch!
The only drawback in my opinion is the lack of privacy. If you’re someone who needs to make confidential calls or presentations, WORK may not be the right environment. The desks are all in the same room in rather close proximity. If you can make the conference room work for private meetings and presentations, than I don’t think it would be an issue.
