Display books for stately style.
This spacious dining room is actually a Brian Gluckstein-designed concept space for the 2008 Interior Design Show. Having two storeys in a dining room is a luxury, but Gluckstein loves the idea of displaying books wherever possible. "One element every space should include is a library or bookshelf. Books create atmosphere, and give visitors a window into the person who lives there," he explains. This dining area is made even more dramatic with ebony-stained cabinets with a horizontal grain, which Gluckstein added for unexpected visual interest.
