From Bill Clinton to Karl Lagerfeld, these famous workplaces are quite unlike how you'd expect these talented -- and affluent -- personalities are reflected in their offices.
Profiled on a Tumblr blog called 'Famous Workplaces,' office spaces from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Martin Luther King Jr. and Steve Jobs are showcased and give a glimpse into a part of their lives often kept out of the public eye. Such is the variety of some of these big celebrities or personalities' famous workplaces, that the contrast between them, such as Mark Zuckerberg hunched over an ordinary table—with stacks of books, stamps and bottles laying on top—around his employees, or Karl Lagerfeld's mountainous tower of books, is something to behold. These offices are a humble reminder of the dedicated spaces we take comfort, solace and inspiration from, and also show what we display on the outside is not necessarily the same as what's on the inside.
