What room was this closet in?
red cushion and are those drawers underneath? Were they built or bought like that? Thanks so much!
Hi, my name is Flame and me and my mum both really like this design! I was just wondering how much it would cost to get this made? (In pounds if possible) Thanks for the help.
bar and was wondering what to do with the space. I'm going to show my contractor and go for it. The kids will love to sit with their laptop or read a book. It will create some interest in the room too. Thank you!!!

Can you tell me the dimensions of the shelf sections (height, depth, width)? Thank you v much.
I am addicted to books. I really need these shelves!
Of course I love the wall of books (with a rolling ladder!)
Love the leather chair and books oh how I love books!
A home library? Is your book collection in teetering piles against the wall? Is your idea of a good time a few hours of quiet solitude with a good book? Floor-to-ceiliing built-ins, a sliding ladder and a good reading chair would do nicely.

If your library is sizable, don't try to style your shelves but allow the books to take first place. Even if your shelf space exceeds your collection (lucky you!) put other things on the shelves sparingly to allow the eye to rest.
