Since taking the reins as Elle’s editor-in-chief in September, Nina Garcia has settled into her 24th-floor office in Hearst Tower, surrounding herself with her favorite books and career mementos and replacing furniture with pieces better suited to her style.

“I got rid of the big, clunky wooden desk and brought in something lighter, brighter and more inviting,” says Garcia, referencing a large white oval table hugging the far wall of the sunlit space. “I encourage all my editors to just walk in, and I wanted a collaboration space. This is really where everything happens.”
