How do you design a Modern Library?
With the increased interest in technology I am finding that more and more of my clients read on their tablets and smartphones. So then, what do we fill our bookcases with to make a room comfortable and inviting?
The bookcase featured at the J. Butler Collection this summer was a uniquely designed piece inspired from my design vision about wanting warmth but not a lot of clutter. The bookcase to the left is actually photographic images of antique books. The images have been enlarged and color corrected to have a charcoal tone. Applied to a flat back of a true bookcase, my project manager built out moldings to add dimension. They are then covered with plexiglass which under a spotlight provides a pristine polish to a room…whether the room is traditional, transitional or contemporary.
