CLV has partnered with Swedish furniture giant, IKEA, to create modern, vibrant spaces at villages across the United States. Most recently, the head office team returned to their office (also known as the Downtown Clubhouse) to be greeted with brand new décor for a fresh start to the new year!

With a bright colour palette, modern furniture, wireless charging stations, more meeting spaces and an open office design, the new space creates a unified aesthetic between the Downtown Clubhouse and the recently revamped Village Clubhouses.

“I am extremely impressed with all of the changes that were made in the Downtown Clubhouse,” said Kristyn Berry, Training & Audit Coordinator. “The team was able to take a normal office setting and turn it into a place that is bright and exciting, and much more inviting. I also love the fact that you can see everyone’s face when you walk through the doors. Kudos to the refurb team. They did a fantastic job!”

The IKEA partnership began in 2016, with the revamp of the University Meadows Student Village common space. The space was designed and delivered by IKEA at its expense, as a showcase project for the IKEA BUSINESS video series. The new renovations focus on design, functionality and technology to create an ideal space for tech-savvy millennial students.

Following this highly successful launch, subsequent refurbishments have been jointly developed with IKEA design experts and the CLVus operational team. Five clubhouse makeovers have been completed in the last six months at University Meadows in Missouri, Village Oaks in Waco, University Oaks in San Antonio, Centennial Court in Arlington and University Park in Abilene. 90 short stay rooms at University Oaks were also designed and fitted out with IKEA furniture.

The program will continue into 2017 to bring contemporary quality furniture to villages across the US, as well as potential room redesigns and ongoing supply of village furniture.
