1092 fitinhouse.com A library in a French-style house. Bookcases run all the way up to very high ceilings, at least 12 feet high, and a ladder would be necessary to access the higher shelves (although one is not shown). Very traditional furnishings and decorator book sets finish the space. [Nice arrangement of the small desk with a sitting area. The ottoman keeps it from feeling like an office.]
Isn't this a beautiful home library! It “makes vague reference to the classical Ionic order,” Katherine Newman says of the library in a postmodern Toronto house she designed with architectural designer/builder Peter Cebulak. The room’s finely carved capitals are complemented by a great number of noteworthy antiques, among them a circa 1790 satinwood worktable.
