Eleanor Ambos Interiors

A close-up look at the whimsical life of 86-year-old interior designer Eleanor Ambos. Since her arrival to the U.S. at age 20, Eleanor’s strong will and keen eye have transformed her design business into a multi-million dollar empire. Yet at home, this eccentric tycoon’s lifestyle is astonishingly simple.

Furnishing the homes of diplomats, remodeling dilapidated properties, and maintaining her own warehouses full of antique furniture, she gives little thought to retirement. But as Eleanor loses her eyesight to macular degeneration, she is forced to reckon with a crumbling structure that even she
can’t restore.
