Our beloved Hunker House is truly a labor of love, a living, breathing expression of our very favorite things from the design world. It's a place that feels right at home in Venice, California, with its light wood finishes, airy color palette, and plants galore. But it also brims with Scandinavian accents that make each space look oh-so-very sleek, modern, and effortlessly cool.
So naturally we want the library in the Hunker House to be quite literally a place where you can hunker down with a book or laptop and be fully surrounded by design inspiration. Our library not only communicates a right-this-minute, contemporary feel, but also a cozy ambiance with its plush furniture and soft lighting.
We answered with a big "Yes! Yes!" when it came to selecting this coffee table for our library, so we had to get two. A collaboration between Norm Architects and Note Design Studio for Menu, this design is a contrast between timeless and cutting edge, and we have a feeling we'll be loving it for years to come.
Perhaps a small round stool just won't do for your space ... or, maybe you just fell in love with these ferm LIVING poufs at first sight (like we did!) and need to get one of each. Either way, we completely understand and fully support the splurge. Besides you can never have too much seating, right?
Based on a 1947 design, this floor lamp was dreamed up over 70 years ago and happens to look flawless in our present-day library. With its subtle tilt available in a variety of color options (dusty blue or oyster white, perhaps?), this fixture could easily continue to be a staple in homes over the next 70 years.
You can't go wrong with a mirror in any room, but we knew that we needed something extra special for our library. So we opted for a pick that would add unexpected detailing to the space — it features hand-stitched leather and burnished brass rivets. This mirror could certainly take an equestrian turn, but we think it partners up perfectly with the modern decor in the rest of the room.
OK, OK ... we confess! We might be slightly addicted to these jewel-tone ottomans, but this oversize round gem is the last one, and so worth it. Perfect for cozying up with a good read and a refreshing nightcap.
