Apple’s retail shopping experience is second to none. Everything from customer service, to stock levels and even space is considered. But, possibly one of the biggest reasons anyone goes to a store is for the design. The clean lines, quality furnishing and fantastic lighting make them a site to behold. Then on top of that you have the true landmark stores like the recently unveiled Barcelona store, London’s Covent Garden and 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
But imagine you could take the main design elements of the stores and use them to create the perfect fanboy’s home office paradise. Hong Kong-based blogger, David Wu has done exactly that. Check out the gallery below:
Wu notes that everything in the office was designed specifically to match Apple store furnishing. Within the central pillar with the glowing Apple logo is an Apple TV hooked up to a display. This normally displays photo galleries, but, obviously can be used to watch video content too. The desk was designed to match the same interlocking wood pattern that you’d find within the Apple store, except that the drawers really open. The walls (apart from one) are covered with glass panels over a white overcoat to give the feeling of space.
Perhaps the most impressive part is the replica store shelf packed with empty boxes from most of his own personal bought iDevices. Exactly how many iPhone 4/4S’ does he think he needs? Craziness. If there’s one discrepancy, it’s his choice of TV manufacturer: Samsung. But, he does note in the comments that as soon as Apple releases a TV set, he’ll be first in line to buy one.
To check out his design in more detail, and see what he has to say about it, head on over to his personal blog. All I can say is: I want one!
