At AirBnB, conference rooms are built to resemble unique listings pulled from the site. In one instance, the company worked with the owners of a Hong Kong apartment to make sure all the details of the conference room were accurate. The company, which spent its early years crammed into a small San Francisco apartment, added a wide range of motifs: a vintage PanAm sign decks one hallway; a taxidermy Gazelle adorns the wall in a men's room.
