One of the most exciting parts of moving into our new space has been having a clean, fresh canvas to start on from scratch.
The downside? A blank canvas is, well…super blank. We felt kinda like Wilson Fisk in Daredevil and his white painting.
At our old space, you couldn’t walk five feet without seeing a piece painted by a street artist, a wall of prints, or a mural done by some of our Threadstaff here.
But luckily, our walls (and floors!) are getting to be a little less naked and a little more homey! Check out what we’ve got so far:
We wanted our bathrooms to be clean in a health sense – not in a blank wall sense. Sick Fisher took the concrete floor in the dudes’ bathroom from boring to rad, covering it with his cool blue pattern.
And for the ladies’ bathroom, we had one of our favorite ladies Elloo Elloo create this amazing invasion of adorably monstrous pastel pastries.
Elevatorway to Heaven…?
We couldn’t have the doorway to the Threadless HQ barren of art. So besides dressing up our lobby couch with some throw pillows, we had Lauren Asta – the artist who is slowly but surely covering Chicago with her doodles – dress up our wall.
And to really make us all feel like we were stepping out of reality and into an artistic realm every day when we went to work, Junkyard created this amazing “portal” for us, right around the elevator:
We wanted to take over the outside of our building too! Brain Killer did this amazing (and amazingly daunting) mural up on our watertower.
All along the @BrainKiller water tower.

We’re so excited to have more talented artists come in and cover every inch of our new space with color, designs, and their style. ‘Til then, Threadstaffers like Conrad have the right idea:
