BookKeepingMAR16featureCount Eric Brown among those who still believe in the tangible, practical, and magical charms of books. The interior designer prefers bound pages for inspiration and reference, as well as maintaining client folders where ideas, sketches, and physical samples can commune. For his new studio space, Brown designed a library inspired by the buildings in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood: cast iron, aged wood, and mineral paint impart functional gravitas. The main level serves as a workspace for poring through catalogs, as well as a bar for entertaining and lubricating creative sessions. The vertical shelving and sliding ladder—a byproduct of the 15-foot ceilings—cap off a beautiful display for reference and client materials: part storage, part altar, all functional.

TOP SHELF // Brown maintains a working library of catalogues and materials, as well as notebooks of current client projects. Rotating artwork—this piece is by William M. Halsey—is courtesy of Hampton III Gallery.
