SHEFFIELD venue The Chimney House has been ranked at the top of the list for the most creatively designed boardrooms in the World.

Seattle-based experts eVenues, who deal with meetings, events and unique spaces from around the globe, placed The Chimney House in Kelham Island at number two ahead of top creative meeting spaces and boardrooms in Baltimore, Cape Town and Berlin.

A spokesman for eVenues said: “While most of the creative boardroom designs sport a sleek futuristic look, it was refreshing to find the Sheffield meeting room at a UK venue called The Chimney House.

“The red-brick walls, hardwood floors and salvaged furniture and decor give the place a welcoming, lived-in, feeling which is sure to make anyone feel at home the moment they walk in.”

A former factory, The Chimney House building was rescued and restored by design house 93ft. It is used for meetings, launches and conferences and attracts companies, brands and businesses from all the UK and Europe.

Co-owner Sally Clark said: “Every element of The Chimney House has been designed to be inspirational and innovative - we’re delighted that we have ranked with the best in the world.”
