What Houzz contributors are saying:

This curving of corners and edges extends to just about every piece of timber within the house, even when members are stacked to create a surface. Instead of making the wood appear flat in these instances, the curved edges allow each member to read individually. It also means that the surfaces, predominantly mahogany, are soft to the touch — and irresistibly so at that.While Henry conducted the office's business matters, Charles spent much of his time away from the office, be it at the mill or on the jobsite working with craftsmen; many of the details were actually determined onsite by Charles, working with the carpenters. No wonder the Gamble House is so exquisitely constructed.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to Inglenooks Carry On a Warm Tradition
In an essay about inglenooks throughout history, Holt notes that at the turn of the century, many titans of the industrial age invested in shingle-style country homes. An example is the Gamble House in Pasadena, California, built in 1908 by Charles and Henry Greene for the Gamble family (yes, those Gambles, as in Proctor & Gamble). One of the distinctive features of the Arts and Crafts masterpiece is the finely detailed inglenook in the living room. You can almost picture David and Mary Gamble rising from their retirement rockers and taking a closer seat at the living room fireplace.

According to architect Stephen Holt, the inglenook came about when our ancestors added bigger ventilation hoods and columns to support them, making a tiny room within a larger space and clearing the sooty air considerably. It was only natural that our foot-sore forebears, who were stoking the flames or using the fire to cook, would add a tiny seat within the cozy nook, and then a little bench so others could enjoy the warmth.

The inglenook (a built-in bench seat placed at a right angle to a fireplace) may be most associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, but the design element has its roots in the Middle Ages, before formalized architecture as we know it. Back then fireplaces were the only source of heat, so they were cavernous to accommodate large logs and big fires. According to architect Stephen Holt, the inglenook came about when our ancestors added bigger ventilation hoods and columns to support them, making a tiny room within a larger space and clearing the sooty air considerably. It was only natural that our foot-sore forebears, who were stoking the flames or using the fire to cook, would add a tiny seat within the cozy nook, and then a little bench so others could enjoy the warmth.
