Anna Wintour’s Chic Office

NY Fashion Week is happening now.  Perhaps no one knows the ins and outs of Fashion Week better than Anna Wintour, longtime editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine since 1988 and artistic director at Conde Nast. Donning her trademark black Chanel sunglasses and perfectly styled bob, Wintour has been a fashion-show fixture for decades.   So, what does her office look like?

As seen in a “73 Questions” segment produced by Vogue, Wintour’s office in the old Conde Nast Building was tastefully decorated with a wide variety of pieces.

It’s open, airy and has  chic mix-and-match of industrial, vintage classical styles. Fresh floral arrangements and French console by the doors lend the hand of ladylikeness  and whimsicalness.

Love how seating area is arranged  with unique vintage French chaise, chair and ottoman in cream and taupe linen.   Love the cream roman shades with the black trims—a touch of fashion contour.   The antique area rug with subtle red patterns pick up the red color of roses on the desk, adding a little bit of visual excitement in the office.

Love how the artworks and objects are arranged in her office —artsy and neat.  The low bench just beneath the window is such a good idea to display the decor objects—it makes the space interesting and organized.

  3. A comfortable seating;
  4.  A stylish antique chair upholstered with chinoiserie fabric;
  5. And fresh flowers.

What about yours?
