What once lived in a 40-foot storage container on a small Idaho sheep farm now sprawls onto 73.7 gorgeous acres right off Eagle Road in Meridian. Home to more than 700 Boise Valley employees, the Scentsy Commons Tower is six stories tall and 167,996 square-feet, making it the tallest building in the city of Meridian. Founded 11 years ago, Scentsy is now one of the largest direct-selling companies in the nation.
Headquarters: 2701 E. Pine Ave, Meridian, ID
Scentsy Commons Tower: 167,996 square feet
Designer: CTA Architects Engineers
Idaho-Based Employees: 739
Founded: 2004, by owners Heidi and Orville Thompson
Surrounded by over 1,000 trees, three miles of walking paths, lush green grass and fragrant flowers, the Scentsy Commons Tower was inspired by the idea of being a central greenhouse – a place where employees can thrive and flourish, and big ideas can grow. Each of the building’s levels reiterates the depiction of life with six themes: Main Street, Earth, Water, Light, Air and Life.

The third through sixth floors are designated for employee personnel, holding various departments. Each level’s décor falls in line with its theme – water features on the third floor, floor to ceiling windows on the fourth floor, two large patio spaces on the fifth floor. The sixth floor is the home of the owners’ suites, those that reinforce the life of Scentsy. Being the only executive offices with an outside window, the space is flooded with natural light. An entire wall is lined with shelves decorated with memorabilia from Scentsy Consultants and events. Another wall is scrawled with personal notes from Consultants who visit the Meridian campus.
