"Many of the furnishings in the apartment were custom…like this sectional sofa in the library which has a FSC certified birch plywood frame and cushions made of organic latex. The coffee table that you see a peek of on the left is made from recycled aluminum."

This is from an article about the project. Hope it is helpful.

I love this space. To me this shows a perfect mix of textures and color, a trained eye can put something like this together and have it look effortless. I have a preference for spaces that do not look too contrived or "decorated". If everything matches, it's not interesting. Also, there is a lot of skill that went into pulling this off, scale and composition are very important in a space. Most likely the client wanted a comfy reading corner where they could be surrounded by their books, I think they got what they wanted. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Dilemma: Bland and boringSolution: Spice things up with rich details. A room without books and interesting fabrics can feel bland. If your living room is full of new furniture and accessories, it might be time to mark your calender and hit a few local flea markets and antiques fairs. Quirky objects are great conversation starters, and having interesting books and artwork around makes life more pleasurable. Wallpaper or a textured wallcovering like grass cloth can also add a sense of history and depth.A note on mirrors: I think most decorators would agree that a room is not complete without a mirror. Some mirrors are meant to be looked in, it's true, but sometimes the best place for a mirror is where it can't be seen into directly. Over the mantel or a high bookcase may not be great for checking out your outfit, but it will reflect light and views and add a wonderful sense of depth to the room. Don't always choose a rectangular mirror — circle mirrors are a classic choice, and a pair of square mirrors hung side by side is very chic.
1. An assortment of books. One of the most enjoyable pastimes when visiting someone else's home is rummaging through their book collection. Whether you have a full wall of shelving or a slender cabinet or case, stock it with a variety of reading material that appeals to all tastes: mysteries, bestsellers, nonfiction, short stories and more. Don't forget to add bedside lamps or reading lights, as well as a cushy spot in which to curl up.
11. Round mirror tucked into a bookcase. Take a cue from decorator Thom Filicia and tuck a chunky round mirror into the center of a wall of bookshelves to bring a sense of depth to your room. Bonus: This is a great way to make an old entertainment center work in another way — just place a mirror where the TV would have gone.
By the book. Here’s a great way to subtly integrate a bold pattern into a small room. Here the wide stripes on the upholstery mimic the vertical lines of the books behind — not only in color, but also in scale.
