This 18th century manor house, just outside London, seeks to blend legacy and heritage with 21st century modernity. It offers it guests gorgeous gardens and a fully equipped spa in true country escape style. They wanted a main library room and a collection designed to go into their bar that would match the aesthetic.

In the main library room we put together a modern collection of both classic and contemporary reading titles on a range of themes for the guests to enjoy, such as history, art, food and wine and film. We worked with the interior designer to ensure the books complemented the look and feel of this room, creating an attractive cultural hub for guest enjoyment. We also added some large illustrated titles to go on display around the sofas in the room. In the bar room we supplied them with tall Swedish leather bound titles in a brown hue, for decorative rather than reading purposes, adding to the design and allure of this room.
