Tucked away in the tall tower of 650 Madison, Ralph Lauren sits behind his sleek, modern glass table, piled high with books and flowers and knick knack mementos of a life well lived. A lesson in maxi-minimalism, where an abundance of clean lined components, and sharp, decorative accessories act to calm, not overwhelm, his most well-appointed bureau is the Platonian ideal of offices everywhere.
