Sorry - I missed this - The bookcases were purchased in upstate NY, Hudson - wonderful town for sourcing antiques, vintage and design.
Sure , I do consult on line and would be happy to so -

If looking, you can also get reclaimed wood book cases from All of our reclaimed furniture is built to order, and we have created very similar book cases in the past.

You can click here for our hutch/bookshelf portfolio :

I hope this helps!

Oven placement - I love the way you placed the oven in the island. I would like to do the same with ours, but the owner's manual says it is not recommended. Are there any specific guidelines that need to be followed in order to place an oven in the island? I would appreciate any guidance you could offer. The kitchen is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing.

Have licensed electrican and contractor install the oven. Essentially the oven is being housed in cabinetry whether it is in an island or above counter height. Thank you for your comments.

Kitchen & Bath Concepts
We would recommend using Silestone which is a quartz product. The two colors we use when people are looking for a "white marble look" are Lyra and Lagoon. Lyra has a more pronounced grey "vaining" in it, while the Lagoon is more subtle. Attached are the two colors, as well as, a photo of a kitchen we did with the Lagoon. Silestone has a 15 year warranty on their product and is scratch, stain, and scorch resistant. Very reliable and beautiful product. Hope this helps!

Lagoon is the first image and Lyra is the second. The third is Lagoon again.

This chandelier is the Maria Theresa Bibi Continental style chandelier - long gone but "antiques" are available. Contact David @, 718 787 9007 He has the frame and can access others. He would be happy to help.
