For the furnishings, a leather couch and chair sit just below the shelves, and creating an exotic vibe, a zebra-skin rug, completing the lavish library.
To the side of the seating area, a tiered table holds court with wooden armchairs. A handsome blend of Medieval wood furnishings, an animal-print rug and an artful display of tabletop accessories bring character and rustic charm to the space.
