I'm glad you like the desk. The owner got it directly and I'm not sure if it was new or an antique piece.

These bookshelves were custom designed and built. Depending on where you live, that is sometimes no more expensive than buying pre-built.

That looks like it might be a custom piece, but you can find other more modern industrial-inspired at Restoration Hardware:

And, Ebay, flea markets, and salvage stores are good places to look too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Design Talk: What is a Settee?
Pull your settee up to a desk to create an intimate workspace for two or to simply have more breathing room while you work solo.
Becky Harris added this to Create a Place for Books
A home office can be outfitted with built-ins to double as a library.
Now here's what I call color therapy. Sure, neutral spaces are a great idea if you wanna remain timeless and unattached to a specific color scheme. The downside is that no color at all can often becoming more boring than beautiful. Here's where a single burst of color, large in scale, hung on a cream wall comes in. Obviously, the art adds some energy to the space; however, this also works as a building block for slowly working color into the room. If I were styling it for a photo shoot, I'd bring out the blue and the yellow by adding in 5-10 objects sporting those two colors: a small patterned pillow on the club chair, tabletop accessories and organizers on the desk, then maybe a few graphic objects on the bookshelves. Starting with art is always a safe bet for incorporating color. Just remember this quote: "Good art won't match your sofa."
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Contemporary Texas Style
...while the white interior, with carefully chosen furniture, art and accessories, appears fresh and cool. The combination is the perfect antidote for the hot Texas climate.
Margaret Everton added this to Beautiful Modern Home Libraries
This room balances softer details with sleek shapes, natural materials, and steel detailing.
Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Warm and Modern in Austin
Randolph chose to place these windows high to take advantage of the light without having to look straight into the windows of the adjacent home. "I love to be involved during the construction process," he says. "The day before the sheetrock was to go in, I was on site and could see that these raised dormers would be an improvement to my original plans; because the workers were there, I found out the cost of creating them was minimal." The change was made on the fly, and these added angles bounce the light and add dimension to the ceiling. The painting is by local Austin artist Will Klemm.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
Here is another wall of books that integrates larger openings for displaying objects other than books. They are horizontal, vertical, and square, enabling different things to be on display.
Cathy Lara added this to Design Pros Draw Inspiration From Mom
Architect Hugh Randolph says his mom taught him to be curious and to have empathy, which has helped him look at things from the point of view of his clients — an "invaluable skill," he says, for any architect or designer. Randolph grew up in a house that had a revolving collection of literature, history and art books and plenty of access to art supplies; this makes sense, as his mom is a skilled visual artist. Design tip from Mom: Creating a lively, lived-in household is more important than achieving a show-house look. Encourage all members of the family to read and play by filling the home with books of all types, art materials and plenty of conversation areas. Display artwork in both expected, high-traffic areas and unexpected places like bathrooms and walk-in closets; you never know when an impressionable young mind will be impacted by what they see.
In the OfficeA comfy settee makes a good desk chair and gives the space a much homier and personal feeling.
