Rosie Paterson selects home-library furniture to create the perfect ambiance for your study.
A study should be a quiet place for reflection and contemplation, for concentration and respite from the world. They are traditionally masculine spaces but of course in this day and age there’s no reason why a girl can’t have her own study – lots of us work from home these days.
Below are a few pieces which would go well in a traditional space – some good, solid pieces of furniture are important, as are the useful log holder and magazine rack and some high quality lighting.
