Library contemporary-home-office


This elegant walnut paneled library is the coziest room in the house. The vintage architectural “envelope” was so traditional, we used contemporary Italian furniture to complement the grid wall panels. A warm golden color, which was found in the Tibetan wool rug, was chosen for the ceiling, and chocolate browns, tans and reds accent the rest of the space . The bookshelves are filled with the owner’s artbooks and miniature chair collection. Photo by Beth Singer.

Hello. This paneling is over 70 years old, but it does look in person exactly as it does in the photo. I'm sure a painter could mix a custom stain for you to approve. Best regards, Charles Dunlap

Alex, I see the brown paneling as a neutral, so really any color direction on the floor would work. If you're wanting to do tile, I would probably do another neutral, such as a tan limestone. You can always add color with a rug, but you can't easily change the floor color if you get bored with it. Regards, Charles

Hi! Can you please tell me how much does the library wood panelings cost? What size do they come in? What type of wood is it? Do you ship to Brisbane, Australia? How much is shipping? Thanks very much! Bruno

Lily Gahagan added this to 7 Stately Study Essentials
5. Wood paneling. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with dark colors, but I'd be remiss not to include it in our list as it is a hallmark of a classic study. If traditional paneling isn't your thing...
