Designed by Founder Mike Thakur, WorkLodge fuses clean, European style design choices with energizing displays of vibrant, colorful accessories layered on top of the brand’s signature foundation, “WorkLodge White,” the company said in a news release.

“As businesses recognize their changing needs, WorkLodge helps by providing a holistic approach to removing the friction of facilities and growth, freeing them to focus on building their dreams,” Thakur said.

“We continually reimagine what workspace can be for everyone – from solopreneurs to Fortune 500 companies – and build it around a Social Enterprise that gives back to the community through our nonprofit, The Gabriel Foundation,” he said in the news release.

The foundation, he says, will bring entrepreneurship, training and emotional support to people groups that can benefit the most from it, including building children’s homes, fighting human trafficking, feeding those in need or providing micro-assistance.
