An empire built on playing house: how imagination can change your situation

Eleanor Ambos is an unlikely tycoon. Since arriving in New York from her native Germany at age 20, she has transformed a modest interior-design business into a small empire, with a renovated factory building in the borough of Queens in New York at its centre. Eleanor Ambos Interiors profiles the singular octogenarian as she approaches her life with humour and maintains a fiery passion for her work, despite advancing age and worsening vision.

Producer: Katrina Sorrentino
