    Curtains, soft furnishings hang a tapestry or carpet on the wall

    "Stuff" absorbs sound and is excellent for eliminating echo.
    Thick carpet on the floor
    Thick curtains - not necessarily pulled across - just having a pair of folded material does a lot.
    Books on shelves, lever arch files, etc etc - the usual officey stuff.

    If you don't care about appearance, sticking egg boxes all over the walls and ceiling will turn a room into an "anechoic chamber" :)
    I'll see if I can get some kind of felt noticeboard and a few shelves etc in there.

    Knock up a frame, fill it with rockwool and cover it with fabric, coloured if you like. Stick it on the wall. AKA an acoustic panel
