Founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, 601 W. 26th St.
What does Martha Stewart love about her ninth-floor corner office in the Starrett-Lehigh Building, where MSLO has 150,000 square feet and some 350 employees? “Its emptiness,” says Stewart. “I like simple, and my life is very full. And I have many houses that are very full. This is like a retreat.” And despite the appearance that no work gets done behind the barren, white Formica Saarinen table, there is indeed a keyboard attached to the computer monitor (in a drawer), and pens, paper, and Post-its (in another drawer). “I need it to be pristine,” she said. “The only problem is keeping the windows clean.”
