We love home libraries, be they big or be they small, a home library is a sanctuary of thoughts and stories. Whether you have the square footage and the pocketbook for an ostentatious presentation of leather bound prints or a simple book case in the corner, fill it up and utilize it.
To help inspire your design and your hunger for knowledge, we’ve collected an inspiring array of home libraries. Which is your favorite?
