Design Trend: Home Libraries

One design trend that appears to be on the rise for affluent homeowners is home libraries. According to the Wall Street Journal, “Affluent homeowners are buying quality books in quantity to amass collections for private personal libraries.”

One thing that sets apart today’s home libraries is their functionality. Although the walls are still paneled with shelves of books, the interior spaces are designed for more than a place to kick back and curl up with your favorite book. These libraries house a dining table, where guests can discuss their current read over dinner; a “playroom library”, where kids can immerse themselves with books instead of electronics; and custom bound books to match the aesthetic of the space.
