While we worked on books for several rooms in this large home, the Library was where most of our selections were concentrated. All of the books were curated by subject to appeal to various members of the family and guests - from American history, to travel, art and children's classics - the Library has it all.
House Full of Books
For a family of readers with three rooms of bookcases to fill, we curated collections of books by subject and binding style. Leather bound history and literature for the office, exploration and science for the library, children's classics and reference works for the family room.
The family who lives in this Chicago home loves to travel. They gave us a list of their favorite places to visit, we curated a book collection and made custom jackets with iconic views across the spines. The result is a one-of-a-kind highly personalized library.
For the lobby of the W Residences on Hollywood Boulevard, we worked with designer Theresa Fatino to curate a collection of neutral toned books - a mix of antique leather, vellum, fabric and paper wrapped books.
For this private home in Los Angeles that has been featured on Goop, we curated a selection of art books and family oriented titles for the Living Room. The look is intentionally geometric and minimalist. In the Dining Room we worked with the color palette by curating books as published in black, white and grey tones as well as placing some books in our custom jackets in the appropriate colors. Interior by Windsor Smith.
For this Philippe Starck building in Panama, we custom made thousands of books in gold wrapped jackets for one area and hundreds more in rainbow colored jackets for another. The designer then flipped the books around so that the fore edges are facing out, creating a very nice effect.
