Library or Home Office

Claire Paquin: Clean Design Partners

Location: Eastchester

The goal for this home office was to give the homeowners and their children a space equally conducive to doing work and homework or to relaxing and reading a book. The husband wanted a more traditional design, while the wife wanted the space to be fun and funky. The result is a mix. For example, custom built-ins by Henry Agudelo Architectural Woodworking were done in walnut, giving the space an Old World library feel, while metallic linen wallpaper, a large, tufted slipper chair, and custom swirl rug are quite modern.

The inspiration for this project came from the beautiful Federal bones of the house itself and the husband’s appreciation of industrial buildings and equipment. A dynamic tension developed by furnishing light fixtures and side tables in almost brutish, industrial materials. This project included the installation of built-ins by Hudson Cabinetry Design, the fabrication of window seats and treatments, a redesign of the fireplace mantel and surround, and the addition of new furnishings.

The standout feature of this library and home office is the rich mahogany used throughout. A rigid grid of beams frames the ceiling fixture and creates interest. In the office, built-ins frame the windows; in the library, bookshelves line three walls and house a large book collection. The floor plan allows for ample furniture but also creates a cozy and inviting feel.
