Ever wonder what the most powerful leaders, business execs and celebrities keep on their desks? Well, we’re about to tell you. Our biweekly “What’s on My Desk” feature will take a look inside the offices and at the desks of the world’s most influential power players.
This week we’ve featured Kelsey Lee Offield, the great-granddaughter of the Chicago Wrigley’s and the granddaughter of Eddie Offield, the founder of the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey, Michigan. Offield is also the owner of Hollywood’s Gusford Gallery, where the 30-year-old artist, collector and collaborator dedicates herself to developing and nurturing emerging artists. As a member of the philanthropic Chicago Wrigley family, Offield also knows the importance of giving back. With this mindset, she designed Gusford Gallery to be a safe, yet sophisticated space for developing burgeoning talent, working in a range of mediums. Here is a look at the items on Offield’s vintage steel desk.
