The Yard, a new coworking space located in Eastern Market, is now filled with beautiful artwork by Studio Gallery's own Thierry Guillemin and Deborah Addison Coburn. The Yard's coworking space can accommodate up to 440 people, providing them with a calm space to work in the bustling metropolis that is Washington, DC.
Surrounding yourself by art while you work can be tremendously beneficial for many reasons. According to Forbes Magazine, a study of more than eight hundred employees and thirty two companies in the US revealed that businesses found that displaying beautiful artwork "addressed key challenges, such as reducing stress, increasing creativity, and encouraging the expression of opinions." Taking pride in your work environment, in other words, is an important way to stay motivated and inspired.
