Margaret Everton added this to Celebrate the Look of Wear
Older worn pieces like this rug and chaise lounge infuse a refined library with a sense of luxury. It's the kind of room that seems to have been passed down from generation to generation.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
This books in the corner of this library extend past the soffit (seen at left) to the underside of the clerestory windows that also wrap the corner; this necessitates a ladder for reaching the higher shelves.
