    We’re kind of a tough crowd to please when it comes to impressive work spaces. Not to toot our own horn, but we’ve had the pleasure of peeping the best-of-the best in expansive, professional environments. Our Google tour guide and recent visit to cosmetic giant Benefit cement this little factoid.
