Although it’s not quite the homey set up we had at Bishopgate, our current kitchen remains an impromptu gathering place for chats and visits. Recently, we’ve received a few new additions.
New toasters — Thanks to Jeri, we now have not just one but two new Oster toasters. The four-slot toaster has extra wide slots along with settings for toast, bagel, defrost and warm/reheat. The countertop oven allows you to toast, bake or broil. Now, about that microwave…
Vending machines – Jeri and Jeff made a mini Costco run earlier this week to stock up the soda vending machine. Still a deal at 50 cents per can. Our coffee and water service has resumed and we were just restocked today. Don’t forget, the Crystal Light mix is in the cabinet above the sink and the hot chocolate can be found in the cabinet next to the fridge.
What do you think?
As Shiffy has shared, the design of our new office will feature a mix of contemporary elements along with a twist on the traditional. That approach will be no more apparent than the kitchen/collaboration area. This area will feature a long tile countertop for plenty of workspace, wood/metal highboy tables and a mix of seating. One type of seating option being considered is pictured below.
This column-like seat measures 26.5” tall by 9” wide and is covered in a felt-like material. It’s called the “one-cheeker” for a reason – it’s designed for those casual impromptu gatherings when you might perch or lean on the column for a few minutes while chatting. It will easily slide under a table to allow more room. So, what do you think of this choice? Take a look and give the chat chair a test; it’s located in the lobby near Debbie’s desk. “Tawk amongst ya-selves” and submit your comments below. Your feedback will factor into whether we go forward with this option!
