Lovely rug - Where is the rug from.

This is actually a tile pattern set within in the hardwood floor, giving the illusion of a rug.
Great affect, isn't it?

These chairs were purchased through Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman. They are very comfy, as well as attractive.

Library - Where can the library bookcase be purchased?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Laurie S Woods, ASID
These bookcases were custom built for this house.
You may want to speak with a local builder or cabinetmaker about replicating the look for you.

There is a PATTERN in this room because if you look at the large bookcase, you'll see them all filled. And the books are all placed the same way. The room we see in front also displays a similar pattern. Both rooms are able to communicate a pattern to us. Also, RHYTHM is also present because the books and the shelves display repetition.
