Cool workspaces

From The Chief Happiness Officer, a list of 10 seeeeeriously cool workplaces, including workspaces from Pixar, Google, a VW plant, and the Red Bull London offices.

There must be lots of simple things that people do to make their workspaces more comfortable. I like having a couple of plants (watering them and pinching off dead leaves makes a nice excuse for a short break), pictures of friends and family, a comfortable chair, organizing my "clutter" into piles, headphones and good music for when I need to concentrate, a comfortable room temperature. I'm sure others have tips for things to do to make work a happier place, your thoughts?

Searched for a few good ideas but found it to be a more challenging search than I expected; lots of tips for home offices but didn't find quite as much for regular offices:

- Tips for designing a safe and comfortable workstation (University of British Columbia via UC Berkley)

- 10 tips for keeping your desk clean and tidy (LifeClever)

- 10 ways to relaxify your workspace (Steve Pavlina)
