Mahogany Library- Home Office-Peter Rymwid Photography- Cover shot

The corner of a mahogany library became the cover page to a Morris county, NJ magazine featuring home libraries. The true mahogany wainscoting and chairrail created a welcoming space to sit and read or listen to music. Furniture and window treatments were custom added to create an old world look. Window treatments were fabricated from cashmere wool. The wallpaper and fabric valance are from the Ralph Lauren collection.

This is a swag over a panel both attached to a rod. I don't make it I only design it.

Everything I do in my design firm is custom. I work out the dream of a piece of furniture with my client, decide on how the insides will be build, the fabric, trims, nailheading. Then I have it custom made. That is the value of working with an experienced Interior Designer. No two chairs will ever be copied. They are created

What is the name for the table pictured in the left foreground? - I inherited one and cannot figure out its original intended purpose. I tried it as a dining room table, but the legs were in everyone's way. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

... framed to add to this sitting room wall space? Antique maps adorn the room and root it in a traditional style.
Swags for him. Dress up a masculine den or office by adding a coordinating swag topper treatment over a full-length drapery panel. The heavy accent fringe feels plush and formless while remaining masculine. Style tip: Make this accent swag topper out of leftover material from any upholstered piece in your room to tie everything together.
Modern cashmere. By the end of the 19th century, the Scottish had designed machinery to easily separate the Kashmir goats' guard hair from the undercoat hair. This started cashmere's commercial production. Today some of the world's finest cashmere comes from China — which produces around 70 percent of the world's cashmere. If you're looking for the best of the best, go for A-grade cashmere, which tends to have a fiber thickness of about 14 microns (14 millionths of a meter).This library plays homage to a more masculine, refined style. These cashmere drapes are impeccable — not glitzy or over the top, with just the right amount of fall.More: Browse cashmere throws and more in Products
