This studio library environment is full of rich architectural details. The room is beautifully balanced as the walls and ceilings are covered with mahogany paneling and moldings. The library features pocketing doors, arched passageways, a built in credenza, and fluted pilasters.
These pieces were designed and engineered from an old photograph of a fine antique bookcase. These two bookcases employ inlaid solid brass elements and borders. The fronts show a columnar leg post that translate its three quarter round shape into the marble stone top. Note how the brass matches the radius of column and stone.
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).
This traditional design was inspired by Stephan Jackman. It features three pocketing beveled glass doors. The cabinet is made with walnut solids. The hand carved base features claw feet beneath a rope braid. The side panels showcase sequenced book and butt walnut burl sketch face panels. The top projects slightly revealing a reeded leaf covered molding.
