Golf club"I play a lot of golf and I always have - usually in Miami and South Hampton. I'll play more than 40 weekends if I'm able. If not, I'll hit the driving range."CHAIR"I'm into this 1960s style of furniture. Postmodern furniture and art is something that I'm especially drawn to."View of the meatpacking district"The thing that I love about the Meatpacking District is that there is always so much going on - from the shopping to the restaurants. What I love most is the lack of tall buildings. It's a very relaxed environment during the day - but it changes at night."Picture Frame on back table"This is a photo of me and the kids - Austin and Ashley. It was taken in Mexico six or seven years ago."
CFDA memento"Someone in my office made this for me. This was the invitation for the CFDAs that was tweaked in order to make it into this cool memento."
Horses"These were gifts. I love horses and the equestrian lifestyle. These are some of my favourite pieces in my office. Take a look around, they're everywhere."PILLOW"I got into this golf club on Long Island. My friend sent this pillow to me once I had official membership. I don't really have kitschy things such as this in my office - but I thought it was funny. I've been a member for four years, and it hasn't left my chair since."Stack of books"This is a stack of books that I've collected over the years. I like to refer to them for inspiration and whatnot. Most of them were given to me but I always like to update my reading inventory. They're nice to have around even if you don't read them. To me, they feel good."
Wall of photos"Here's what happened. I came up with this idea that everyone was able to choose a photo of someone who inspires him or her and we would frame it for them to hang above their desk. On my wall, I have Martin Luther King, Marlon Brando and my father - three of my heroes."Personal photo collection"These are a few of my favourite photos. There's one of my mother and I. Here's a photo of my son and I when we went to China. Here's a photo of Ricky Sasaki, my very close friend who has since passed away. Ricky and I were sort of partners at Theory. We worked very closely together and this photo means a lot to me."Bowl of golf balls"For my 50th birthday the guys in the office gave me this collection of signed golf balls. There are only a few left. I don't really know to where or how they disappeared. I like them nearby at all times."

"I lead a very simple life," says Mr Andrew Rosen, CEO of Theory, a company he founded in 1997 as a way for both men and women to feel confident yet stylish in modern clothing. "I wake up, go to the gym in my building and then make my way to work where I spend the majority of my day right here, looking out at this remarkable view," Mr Rosen says. The view he's referring to is the Meatpacking District, an area of New York City of which he's been instrumental in raising the profile. From establishing the Theory headquarters here in 2006 to sitting on a board that holds an annual fundraiser to help support the area, for Mr Rosen it's about maintaining a piece of "old New York". "Theory's flagship store and corporate offices are situated on the corner of 9th Avenue and Gansevoort Street," he says. "It's one of the only areas remaining without high buildings in sight - which is something I love." His office space contains sparse furniture juxtaposed with personal items sprinkled throughout - family photographs, gifted books and a pile of golf balls. "I like my office to reflect the way I run my business," he says. "Minimal in detail yet personal in touch." Click through the slides, above, for a guided tour.
I don't like it when people close doors to their offices - nobody here does, including myself
Mr Rosen's New York City HOT SPOTS
"I love this spot for lunch. It's right near the office and I usually get fish, chicken or pasta."
"I usually eat at Pastis for breakfast. It's so convenient because it's right across from my office. I can see it from my window."
"The High Line is amazing. What they did with this space and structure is quite remarkable. I walked the entire thing and was amazed. When I look at it, there isn't anything I would want to change."
Perry St restaurant
"Jean Georges is one of my favourite chefs and I love his restaurant Perry Street. I live right next door, so for me, it's all about proximity. Any time I go, he takes great care of me. It's all about food and service."
West Side Highway
"Sometimes I'll walk on the West Side Highway. It's very cool checking out the piers at night time."
"I think the Chrysler Building is incredible. I used to have an office that looked right into the Chrysler Building. I love the view - it's iconic New York."
