The Grommet Office Tour
87 Elmwood Street in Somerville, MA is where you can find our funky, new office that used to be a factory. We think it fits our style really well. Some people have said it’s like a 3D version of our brand.
Grommet - Entrance
Welcome! Come on in.
Grommets, grommets, everywhere! We fill our office space with the fruits of our Grommet partner’s labor, and we like to show them off to guests.
The Grommet Brand
Our brand encompasses all things industrial and maker-related. When visiting our office, you’ll notice this theme throughout the space.
Grommet - "Buy Differently"
More than just a slogan: our company mantra “Buy Differently” adorns the walls of our new office, constantly reminding us of the mission we’ve set out to accomplish.
Grommet - Open Space
Our space is very open and our team members sit in what we call “pods”. Each is separated by custom-made dividers that were former shipping pallets. Again, almost everything in our office was strategically chosen to reflect our brand.
Grommet - "Power Plant"
Our conference room is named “Power Plant” and is always occupied with some form of work or fun.
Grommet - Center of Office
A birds eye view down the center of our office.
Grommet - Jules Pieri's Desk
Our Co-Founder and CEO, Jules Pieri, enjoys an office to herself with lots of windows! Can you spot the Grommets on her desk?
Grommet - Fun and Funky
Fun and funky: distinctive, wooden furniture is a staple in our new office.
Grommet - Partners
Pictures of our Grommet partners are displayed with pride throughout our new space. Many of them visited during our recent housewarming party, and were thrilled to see themselves on our walls!
Grommet - Kitchen
Lunchtime in the kitchen! The wooden table that’s made from reclaimed wood and metal chairs fit the classic aesthetic of our office, while the massive chalkboard allows for doodling.
Grommet - "Factory Floor"
Recognize this? Then you’ve watched one of our launch videos recently. The biggest space in our office is called the Factory Floor and it’s where we shoot The Grommet’s daily videos, utilizing the custom-made wooden backdrop. Those comfy-looking pillows and cushions also come in handy during team meetings.
Grommet - Individualized Desks
Here’s Aaron from our Discovery team, hard at work. He’s individualized his desk with Grommets and other knick-knacks that make his space unique.
Kate McLeod, also from our Discovery team is surrounded by Grommets as she works in the late afternoon.
Grommet - Busy at Work
Ian is our Business Analyst and resident alarm-tester. Don’t disturb him while his orange lights are on - he’s busy!
Grommet - Focus on Design
Our Design Intern, Kyle, looks pretty comfortable in his Yogibo bean bag chair!
Plumen energy saving light bulbs are both quirky and practical - the perfect Grommet! We of course chose to incorporate them into our new space.
Grommet - The Rambler
Jules drives to work in this 1964, classic vintage Rambler. Cool, classy, and terrifically unique, this fun car is something of an office mascot reflecting individuality and style.
