An office worker surprised his colleagues by transforming his workspace cubicle into a mountain cabin – complete with wood panelling, stove and stuffed moose heads.

Lucas Mundt, 36, has a passion for alpine life and wanted to bring a piece of the mountains to his office at drinkware firm Simple Modern in Moore, Oklahoma.

He asked his boss, Mike Beckham, 42, permission to decorate his cubicle.

Lucas covered the walls and floor of his cubby in dark wood panelling and added a matching wooden desk area.

There’s also a bearskin rug, plush moose heads, light-up fireplace and a candelabra illuminating the area.

He still has three monitors, but they have the desktop wallpaper of a beautiful mountain scene, and his surround sound speakers play bird songs and the sound of flowing water.

Lucas added a sticker to one wall of a window showing a lakeside view, and added more stickers of mountains to the transparent screens that separate the cubicles.

The logistics analyst said: "I came up over the weekend so that I could finish it before anyone would see it.

“I didn’t keep close track of the time, but I would estimate it took 10 to 12 hours. No regrets.

"I was a little vague when asking, I asked if it was ok to ‘decorate my cubicle a little’ - little is subjective here!

“Then I checked to see if there were any impending office moves before committing to this."

CEO Mike said: “I was just blown away by the creativity and commitment it took to bring a Colorado cabin to life in a cubicle.

“I also loved that he felt the freedom and desire to bring all of himself to work.

“Everyone loves it. Several people have been brainstorming how they can add their own personal touch to their offices and cubicles.”

Lucas completed his transformation on January 13, and his colleagues saw it the next day.
