Seeing is Believing: Step Inside Warby Parker's Headquarters
Get out your reading glasses! The eyewear brand loves books so much, their offices include a library and a secret reading room.
Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
Warby Parker is a brand that loves books. It's evident in the eyewear company's retail stores, which are decorated with volumes of classic literature and library-inspired ladders and shelves. It's evident in the brand's name, which was inspired by two characters from Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums. And it's evident in the company's Manhattan headquarters, which prominently features a massive staircase lined with books that are available for employees to "check out." Or, if they simply need some in-office quiet time, there's a secret room behind the staircase that contains nothing more than a chair and, of course, a bookshelf. And if they forgot their reading glasses, well, the office has that covered, too.
