Home Libraries: More Than Just Books

We should let you in on a secret: home libraries are not really about books. It’s a comfortable chair with a cup holder. The Sunday newspaper with a hot cup of coffee. A romance novel with a glass of wine. A New York Times bestseller with sweat ice tea. The one area of the house not overwhelmed by the digital world, void of tweets and Facebook status updates, and probably the only place the kids are reluctant to visit. Your sacred space.

The traditional style of library design is full of mahogany and evergreen accents; you know, very Hogwarts-ish. More modern libraries are whiter and brighter with sleek furnishings. And of course, anything in between.

The design styles and possibilities are endless; and we believe the home library starts with the right chair.

There may be dozens of shelves littered with a sundry of books, but the chair is the shining star. Your choice of chair can tell you a lot about your style and expectations for your library space. One cozy chair, the kind that wraps you like a mother’s womb, could indicate that one person will be spending a lot of time here. So you’ll need good lighting and a quiet corner. A couple of Barcelona chairs makes a statement. This is a public place where status is important and socializing is encouraged.

Even the absence of a chair says a lot; that library concentrates heavily on organization and space saving. We just adore the bookshelves situated along staircases.

It's time to re-invent the home library.
