Library with Window Seat

Enlarging the existing opening to flood the space with more natural light while increasing storage with the design of a custom built in window seat and bookcases has made this space a lovely place to read or just hang out.

@heatheranna the website is listed above. There has been discussion on other pictures about the fixtures from www.hudsonvalleylighting.com . The client was very happy with them but one woman has been complaining that they did not measure up to her standards and believes they were made in China. Please do your research and confirm the return policy. We are also big fans of Remains Lighting. Their show room is in NYC and they restore antique fixtures and sell them as well as manufacture period pieces in their factory in Brooklyn NY.

First you say the floors are red oak, then you say they are white oak. Which is correct? How long did you let the stain sit?

They are White Oak. sorry for any confusion. If you hire a professional they should be able to work with you to get a color and finish that will make you happy.

Apr 2012 This is the homeowner: I assume you mean the wood floors? They are real unfinished white oak, quarter sawn 2 1/4 inch planks and stained a mix of mixwax colors: 50% Jacobean and 50% Ebony. They are then finished with a an oil based Professional Finish Polyurethan (which is oil based) called Absco (in satin). Your contractor should have no trouble finding these common products. Good luck
