Library Extraordinaire

New meets old within this fully wrapped mahogany library/drawing room. Woodleaf Studios took two rooms from this historic home and made them into one. The original wall separating the two rooms was replaced with a balanced group of columns and pilasters. The coffered ceiling provides elegant character and depth. There are concealed wall panels engineered to allow access to mechanical systems. This elaborate room also has integrated cabinets and bookshelves. The north end of the room is tailored around a large flat screen TV(see image 03).

A "Taste Full" Cabinet

This mahogany cabinet is loaded with features tailored to a wine lover's needs. It is part of the tasting room in the client's wine cellar which Woodleaf Studios also designed and built. The upper cabinets have interior lighting and are made with German glass and lead came dividers. The left glass doors pocket to reveal a sink. There is ample storage and display room in this cabinet. The liquor display cabinets employ rope braid carvings and dadoed shelves for adjustability.

The Wine and Cigar Aficionado Office

Any aficionado of wine and cigars would love to keep track of his or her collection in this finely tailored environment. The built in humidor, equipped with a humidifier and monitoring equipment, is completely lined with Spanish cedar which helps bring out the very best flavors in all tobacco stored there. The fully adjustable shelves (including pitch options) are slotted for increased circulation and also are made with Spanish cedar. The glass door panel is hand carved and etched with tobacco leaves and cigar motifs. All the wall surfaces in the office are covered with alder paneling and cabinetry. There is a concealed door behind some of the paneling. The door's lever is also concealed. The entire room has a slightly distressed finish using a dark glazing to accent the panel framing.
