library modern

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Beautiful Modern Home Libraries
Strong materials are incorporated in thin, linear shapes throughout this space. A rug softens up the room while keeping to the warm and earthy tones.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
The corner of this library is access to other rooms, but the bookshelves on either side are nevertheless continuous in design, particularly the narrow shelf about a third of the way up; I'm guessing it's used for large books and documents that want to lie flat.

Continuous band of narrow shelves, waist height, for large books and maps needing to lie flat--adds nice rhythm and horizontal line to the architecture.
