Has anyone staged a commercial property resulting in leasing success? Any thoughts, pros or cons?

I have a "unique" space for lease and am considering furnishings to stage an area as possibly a reception/wait space. I don't want to limit the "potential", however, with this visual. The space is suitable for office, retail or some type of beauty business, like a salon.

As in residential sales, a dressed property sells better. With commercial apce, you want to make sure you don't 'limit' the endless possibilities and uses, if they exist.
Keep it simple, define only the areas that are obvious and leave the rest to the imagination.

I have found success in networking with furniture stores, accessorary stores, etc. that in return for staging your space, you will allow them to display their signage identifying who they are. If a client of yours uses their services they will get an agreed upon discount
