A Little Piece Of The Magic

I forget if I mentioned before, but I'm making a roombox for my husband. 

Although I'm making most of its components myself, a few will be contributed by other artisans.  The first, and in my opinion, most delightful of those components arrived yesterday.  Although I can't afford De Cave Designs' magical bookseller's shop, I can bring home a little piece of the magic in the form of a Louis XIV bookseller's table.  This sort of makes the room, with nothing else in it, doesn't it?

The room itself, architecturally, is Dutch, but we'll be filling it with an eclectic mix of French and American (and a few British!) pieces.

Doesn't it look great?

If you'd designed it for this space, it couldn't fit in better.

The finish on the table itself is really lovely.  I adore the burl effect.  The books themselves, too, are utterly charming.

One last look...
