A Proper Library

A proper library exudes warmth, comfort, traditional design, and a lived-in feel recalling years spent studying, reading, or housing family treasures. While books may be the central feature, a traditional library includes such hallmark pieces as leather chairs, rich wood shelving, and a grand desk. The feeling is warm and cozy with an invitation to pore over books.

Recreate the look of a proper English library with our curated selection of favorite Scully & Scully pieces. Shop online or visit us in-store for a wide selection of all the necessary library elements, from leather accessories and whimsical bookends, to traditional furniture in rich leathers and mahogany.
