“The nicest meeting room we have in this building,” Massey says, “is the boardroom.” Prominently located at the head of the main staircase, facing a lounge area, the boardroom seems like a box sculpture, symbolizing both their history and their modernity. The grand wood table has a rippling white stripe down the middle to symbolize milk, surrounded by leather seating, weathered barn wood cabinetry and wall cladding, and a long white wall embossed with life-sized bottles of milk. “That’s where we gather when we have guests” comments Massey.
The prominent location, which inspired a boardroom they could really show off, also created a privacy issue. Meetings might require confidentiality, but the room adjoins a high-traffic public area.
