Stylish Home Libraries by Architectural Digest – A home library is the perfect respite from the high-tech world with shelves of books and a cozy, studious feel. From a modern space in New York City to an ornate study in Manhattan, Architectural Digest gathered some of their favorite home libraries.
Floor-to-ceiling oak bookshelves distinguish the library of a New York City townhouse renovated by architect Annabelle Selldorf.

A 1951 abstract painting by Charlotte Park and James Brooks hangs in the library of a Hamptons retreat decorated by Carrier and Co.; the vintage Italian marble-top cocktail table is from Sutter Antiques, the armchairs are clad in a Malabar cotton, and the rug is by Woodard & Greenstein.
At a Manhattan townhouse transformed by William T Georgis, a Piotr Uklański resin painting provides a striking contrast to the library’s brass-trimmed millwork; the Regency armchairs are attributed to Morel and Hughes.
At a Seattle home renovated by Jeffrey Bilhuber, a sofa and lounge chair by Bilhuber, a stone-top cocktail table by Lucca & Co., and antique wood panels from Todd Alexander Romano set an inviting scene in the library; the chandelier is by Bourgeois Bohème, and the steel sculpture is by Peter Millett.
In the library of accessories designer Fiona Kotur’s Hong Kong home, the pair of Christian Liaigre armchairs and the custom-made sofa and its pillows are all covered in Manuel Canovas fabrics; the cocktail table is by Yves Klein, while the Moroccan carpet from Woven Accents and the floor lamp in the corner are both vintage. Brass picture lights by Ralph Lauren Home top the bookshelves.
