The Ralph Lauren inspired library/dining room features a pair of custom leather wing chairs and the family's extensive book collection. The chairs become host and hostess seating when the room's drop leaf table is extended for formal dining occasions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to Craving Cozy
Books, check. Velvet pillow and a warm blanket, check. Beautiful rug and wing-back chairs covered in rich, brown leather...yep, it's all here. This library/dining room runneth over with coziness. I could hibernate all winter right here.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Long, Cold Winter Days—Bring 'em On!
Reading is an excellent way to pass the time during long winter months. Stock up on all the bestsellers and enjoy the adventures while snug as a bug in your warm, cozy house. Hot chocolate is optional, but heavily suggested.
The leather-bound library aesthetic is always inviting. I can practically smell some academic's pipe smoke when I look at this room.
