The library in a Southampton, New York shingle-style house designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern for an art-collecting developer. “Butternut paneling lines the book gallery leading to the library. “The bookcases are angled out slightly from the wall, giving the room a unique shape and exaggerating the sense of perspective from adjoining rooms,” notes Stern.”



The library in the Atlanta home of framing company Larson-Juhl’s CEO, Steve McKenzie, a passionate collector of art. The library, designed along with the rest of the house by Kerry Howard, was made to house McKenzie’s art books and collection of Jonathan Adler pottery (the thick white shelves match the white pottery, and allow the book titles to pop out visually).
