Are those shelves custom built? - I live in San Francisco as well and want to have shelves like this made for my place - on both sides of the fireplace. Did you have these made recently? If so, by whom? thank you!!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The ladder in this multipurpose room was salvaged from an old school in London.Sofa and rug: flea market; pillows: World Market; chandelier: original to the home
Step 5: Agree to Blend Styles in Main SpacesShared spaces like the living room, where you spend lots of time together, should reflect both of you. Now is the time to compare your lists and try to find items that will work together.Case in point: In this living room a dark floor, traditional furniture and a library ladder build a classic foundation for the room, while the rich green paint behind the bookcases and a sparkly chandelier inject a sense of fun.
