With very few exceptions, I prefer a frame to a gallery wrap. If it's not a painting, it shouldn't be on canvas. If you're looking for a more contemporary approach, try face-mounted acrylic. The face of the photo is mounted to the back of an acrylic sheet. The colors generally have a lot of vibrance.

The nesting tables were purchased from BoConcept, although I don't know whether they still carry them. We have used these nesting tables from Mitchell Gold more recently: http://www.mgbwhome.com/PRESCOTT-NESTING-SIDE-TABLEBR-available-online--P11050.aspx

This rug was from the client's collection, so unfortunately we don't have any information on it.

The shelves are built in, and supported on the sides and back with hidden brackets. They are not adjustable. You can achieve a similar look with brackets like these from Hafele: https://hachol02.hafeleonline.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=19310&sitex=10020:22372:US

This was sourced locally in central France, and unfortunately we do not have that information. It's a 16" x 16" tile if that helps. –Studio Santalla

I am sorry you thought I was insinuating anything. Your design is beautiful. However, as a lighting consultant for residential and commercial spaces I am more aware of the true cost of these systems. Having the "green tag" on the product picture indicating the "system" is around $100.00 is misleading as the average home owner is typically not aware of the intricacies of the design and installation of this type of lighting. My comments were not meant to criticize your company, they were strictly directed at this type of product.

It's unfortunate that the Bruck tags available are only for individual components rather than the system as a whole. We have edited the tag to avoid confusion.

Rug atop Terra Cotta Tile Floor - Just bought house with large terra cotta family room floor. Not sure what kind of rug to put over...oriental vs modern? will pattern be too much? Advice???

Yes it does work well. At first I was hesitant about the pattern with the tiles, but now I will try some traditional oriental rugs as well as patterned modern rugs. I love the color of the rug in the photo...

Be mindful of the other fabrics in the room. The rug works in this library because it is not competing with any other patterns. It you have strong patterns elsewhere in the space, you might try a rug with an interesting texture, instead of a pattern. Sisal and Flat Woven rugs will fit well with the terra cotta as well, with its earthy feel.
