Hello, we are Octopus Interiors. We Fit-Out and Refurbish offices in London and the Southeast. Office Furniture, Partition Walls, Acoustic Work & Meeting Pods, Carpet Tiles, Lighting and Power are just some of the many things we do.
We help mainly small and medium sized businesses with lesser budgets achieve office layouts, design and functionality that others would usually charge considerably more for.
Home working just isn’t working for many of us and encouraging everyone back into the office is proving difficult for many businesses. Today’s workplace has changed, needs and working practices have changed and we now want a nicer, friendlier & more comfortable office environment with a different level of functionality – somewhere we’d be happy working but where we can also be more productive and interactive.
It doesn’t necessarily require a big budget though. The change might simply be a matter of a bit of decoration, perhaps some new ‘homely’ looking carpet tiles, rearrangement of existing furniture and the addition of acoustic pods and other soft seating & working arrangements. We can plan this for you and help make your office a really nice, inspiring and well functioning place to go to and to work from.
As a main contractor we work directly for you, the office occupier, and we provide all the materials, tools and the skilled workers to plan, project manage and refurbish & furnish your office.
We don’t only take on complex multi-faceted office fit-out projects. We also do small, simple one-off services. We’re very approachable and rarely do we say ‘sorry, this is too small for us’ so whatever your needs, please do get in touch!
Here are the main services we provide:

We take on complete office interior fit-out and refurbishment projects. Our customers are typically tenants in London with offices accommodating 10 to 150 staff or around 1,000 to 15,000 square feet in size ( 100m² to 1,500m²). We also carry out dilapidations work and refurbishments for landlords.
Your office will probably have already received a landlord’s base fit-out of just essential services and basic décor (this is usually known as a Cat A fitout). We help by transforming it into the look, layout and functionality you want (a Cat B fitout). We do this through space planning to identify the optimum layout and providing a complete supply and fit package of solid & glass partition walls, carpet tiles, lighting, power & data cabling, teapoints, painting & decorating and much, much more.
We also supply and install a fabulous range of office furniture.
Our project work is focused specifically within London and the Home Counties with the majority of activity in Central London, Southwest London and Surrey.
We supply and fit many different types of glazed and solid partition walls. The creation of meeting rooms & private offices and the zoning of open office space through the installation of floor to ceiling partitions is a major element of most of our fit-out projects. We also do post fit-out installations within operational offices. Practicality, acoustics, light transfer, air circulation and cost of ownership are just some of the many aspects we take into account and discuss with you when planning and designing your space.
Creating private work and meeting spaces within open plan offices has traditionally been achieved by fitting partition walls, but these can be costly to install and remove. Once up, they’re a permanent and often inflexible feature making inefficient use of expensive office space. Our pre-configured free-standing acoustic rooms and booths are a cost effective and flexible and way to create quiet & private meeting, work and relaxation spaces. Unlike fixed partitioning, there’s usually no building control involvement, no expensive air conditioning reconfigurations or additions, no landlord’s licence-to-alter and no dilapidations costs. Furthermore, you can relocate them within your office when the need arises and take them with you to your new office when you move.
We supply and fit sustainable and considerately produced carpet tiles from world leading manufacturers. Our work includes pre-occupied empty offices as part of the overall fit-out process and carpet tile replacements in fully furnished operational workspaces.
As a matter of course, we normally do space planning for you before we do a fit-out or furniture installation because we want to be absolutely sure everything fits. But even well before that stage, if you’re in the process of looking for new office space, we would like to help you make sure it’s the right size and shape before you commit to a lease and before you begin costly negotiations. We provide a building measuring and CAD space planning service, normally free of charge, to help you through this process and identify the right property as early as possible.
Our 2 dimensional space plans can form the basis of photo realistic Interior Design imagery enabling you to see how your office is going to look.

Getting the acoustics right in the office is fundamental. Open plan spaces can be noisy and distracting so we’re constantly looking for practical ways of dampening it down. Narbutas have released their new range of Acoustic Artwork Screens, made from PET felt (recycled material) and produced in an array of attractive designs and colours. These add a further dimension to the already extensive range of acoustic furniture we offer.
