16 Amazing Backgrounds to Beautify Your Work Zoom Life

Jan 14, 2022 | By: LX Collection

With remote work here to stay and meetings that are more often face-to-pixel than face-to-face, it stands that our backgrounds could use a little sprucing up. Enter LX Collection. Today, we’re releasing the “Working From Luxury” collection, an assemblage of virtual backgrounds depicting some of the world’s most exclusive properties, so you can Zoom, Webex, and Google Meet in style. 

The team at LX Collection scoured our database and sourced 16 incredible images from luxury properties in New York and Miami to upgrade your work-from-home life. Say goodbye to that “blur background” filter—now you can appear in front of a spectacular residence at Central Park Tower that overlooks Manhattan’s majestic skyline; a stunning sky-high abode at the Ritz-Carlton Miami Beach, dappled in sunlight and graced with soothing ocean views; or a sumptuous One Manhattan Square residence, where swanky interiors pop in front of a majestic sunset. The list goes on, but you’ll have to explore the collection for yourself to see them all.

If you (or those you’re meeting with) want to know more about the remarkable location you’re tuning in from, just follow the QR code in the image’s top left corner. It will take you to the property listing page on LX Collection, where you can read up on the residence and the offerings of the building.

See some standout properties below, or click here to download the full collection from Dropbox.
