Antonio “LA” Reid
Chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group, 825 Eighth Ave.
The halls of Def Jam’s headquarters are littered with blown-up magazine covers and flat-screen monitors, but Antonio “LA” Reid describes his 28th-floor corner office as “traditional elegance with a very contemporary twist.” Hence the clash of white leather upholstery with big black speakers, Diptyque candles with Davidoff cigar accessories, and Harvard Business School paraphernalia with all-access laminates. Alongside vintage photographs by Elliott Erwitt, there are snaps of Reid with Usher, Jay-Z, Jermaine Dupri, Andre Harrell, Phil Robinson, and P. Diddy. “I want it to be comfortable, but not a place that anyone could fall asleep in.” Not likely; see woofer.
