  3. Library joinery details.Drawing by Francis Johnson and Partners.

This library was created in a country house at basement level, with restricted headroom and awkwardly placed beams in the ceiling. The new room is an exercise in the Regency taste. The ceiling is based on Sir John Soane’s Dining Room at Lincoln’s Inn Fields, and cleverly disguises the beams. The joinery is in late-Wyatt style with rich decorative finishes, from wood graining to gilding and ebonising used to enhance the rich mahogany veneers of the panels. Some of the cabinet doors have been lined with pleated green silk behind brass grilles to protect delicate items from the light.
