This traditional mahogany library-office has been detailed, floor to ceiling, wall to wall, every opening and cabinet blending into each other, including the ceiling.
As in all my tailored rooms the moldings have been designed to make every transition secure and graceful.
The cabinets are framed … with 6 inch wide fluted columns that incorporate light sconces with custom back plates designed to work with the column flutes.
The recessed panel moldings are antique guilded to compliment and contrast the dark mahogany finish.
The base molding is substantial enough to support the tall cabinets and paneling with a large six piece soffit to accept the coffered ceiling beams. Two crown moldings were used to make the transition from cabinets to soffit and from the beams to the ceiling.
This room has 3 successful focal points. The fire place, the opposing entertainment cabinet and the large window behind the desk that is literally 50 feet above the edge of a major river.
The room has a multiple step antique toned lacquer finish. It was completely built in shop and installed on site, pre-finished. All panels and molding are glued in place. There are no visual means of attachment to be seen.
A few words about Tailored Rooms...
Meticulously detailed, a 'Tailored Room' is your special place to enjoy. I call these rooms, 'tailored', because of the exact custom fit and the amount of attention to every detail that goes into every square inch of these very personal rooms.
Whether it's a library, office, bar, game room, family room, media room or bedroom. The walls, windows, jambs, doors, floor, ceiling are brought together with the cabinets, paneling and transitional moldings to present a completely, ""Tailored Room"".
From contemporary to traditional, eclectic or theme, whatever your design period or style tastes may be, we'll design, build and install, the room for you.

The cabinet fits just perfect. All the little "cut out" details make a huge difference. Everything is so neat and tidy, no plugs or cables showing. We bolted it to the wall right away. It's really great looking, a naturally beautiful & unique piece we will always enjoy. It's so sturdy too. Keep up the good and creative work. Thanks for creating such a cool piece.
