Who says offices have to be boring?

The office has plenty of other little surprises, like this red lounge. “Concealed behind the curtains are elevator doors that no longer open onto the floor and historic marble panels that must remain intact,” Lauren Foley, IA Interior Architects’s lead designer on the project, told Business Insider. The red curtains are also a nod to the cult show ‘Twin Peaks.’

The office even has its own speakeasy, tucked away behind this wall of rotary phones. Employees can congregate here after work to host happy hours and mingle.

Unsurprisingly, dogs rule the roost at Barkbox’s office in New York City’s Chinatown.

The office pups can mostly roam freely, but employees must abide by “off-leash” hours rules to keep things from completely going to the dogs.
