To give this space an extravagant feel, designers chose dark wood for the bookshelves and filled those shelves with first additions and other collectors' items. 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.
The clients needed a small dining table for special occasions. They had the brilliant idea to create a pedestal coffee table for everyday use that could be transformed into a dining table with semi-circlular leaves.
Built-in and beautifully carved, bookshelves line the walls of this stair landing-turned-library. The room feels open despite all the dark wood, thanks to the high ceilings and light Venetian plaster walls.
The home is filled with arches, which echo with the curves of many of the furniture pieces. In the library, an upholstered niche creates an inviting place where the room’s many books can be enjoyed. On the base of the niche, nailhead trim creates upscale detail. Sconces illuminate the small space.
