7,500 SQ FT

Phillips Architecture


In 2018, the Alabama-based contract furniture solutions provider, first expanded to Raleigh to meet the market demands of the fast-growing city. After four years of great success, Interior Elements sought to invest in a new space to better position themselves for future growth and shifts in the commercial interiors marketplace. Previously, Interior Elements was in Pilot Mill, the historic textile mill, on Haynes Street.

Barringer recently completed this 7,500 square foot first generation headquarters office and showroom buildout for Interior Elements. Located on the second floor of Tower Two at Bloc83, one of downtown Raleigh’s newest mixed-use developments, Interior Elements is centrally located and appealing to both employees and customers. The hybrid space perfectly conveys the company’s innovative, progressive, and dynamic culture and was designed to serve as an office and showroom that is immediately welcoming and creates an impactful experience from the moment you walk through the door.

A telescopic door system creates an open, inviting entrance to the space where guests are drawn in by a branded reclaimed timber wood wall on one side, a reclaimed timber wood and moss wall with a recessed display monitor on the other side, and a comfortable lounge seating area in the middle. Directly past the lounge are a variety of meeting rooms – a conference room, huddle room, and phone room – enclosed by a glass wall system and equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment. A modern café, well-suited for entertaining clients with a coffee maker, wine and beverage refrigerators, beer taps, and an island with seating, anchors the adjacent break out areas and workspaces. Adaptable, open workspaces and private offices showcase the company’s expertise in accounting for challenges faced by their customers, such as multi-generational workforces, cultural shifts, and open office planning. Lastly, a materials library and work area, outfitted with custom millwork for storage, are tucked behind the offices.

Interior Elements was intentional in selecting local vendors to work on the project to support the Triangle business community. JLL, Phillips Architecture, Peak Systems Engineering, Lynch Mykins, and Barringer Construction all have offices located in Raleigh. Also, all subcontractors utilized on the project are local to North Carolina.
