Luxury Library Oxfordshire


Langstaff-Ellis furniture and interiors feature throughout this Oxfordshire home, recently completely renovated, extended and modernised by award-winning architects Anderson Orr – but let’s take a closer look at the stunning bespoke library which is home to the client’s comprehensive collection of literature and poetry, and was made to Anderson Orr’s exacting specification.

Full height shelving and base cabinets are created from solid oak with oak veneer. There are some elegant, truly bespoke details in this room, such as a slide-out shelf on which to rest books for casual browsing, and industrial style Armac Martin brass handles give the cabinet drawers a contemporary finish.

But most striking of all is the unique doorway; within the deep door lining we have engraved quotes from the client’s favourite poets, including T.S. Elliot, Seamus Heaney and Emily Dickinson. Picked out in gold lacquer the quotes provide an insight into the client’s thinking and an impressive entranceway to the library.
