A Room without Books is like a body without a soul. So said Cicero and so say we.
So you can imagine our delight to discover the Ultimate Library provides personal collections and libraries, which are individually curated for hotels, resorts, retail spaces and private residences.
But couldn’t you find your own books? Well, not if you are travelling, staying in different hotels, moving to a new house or country and you just don’t have time.
As seasoned travellers and bibliophiles, the founders of the Ultimate Library were shocked by the lack of decent, local and up to date books available for guests. So, with their publishing background, they launched the Ultimate Library eleven years ago.
The beauty of this turnkey service is that whatever the style, location or demographics of a hotel or home, their client research ensures that a really inspiring, informative and entertaining collection awaits! Your library will be designed and installed and it will be maintained as desired.
Kindles might be easier to travel with but how can they compare with a proper jacket, the feel of the paper and turning of a page and the relaxation of reading in bed or bath? An electronic gadget doesn’t quite make it, and haven’t we had enough on-line during the day? Books are so decorous too, and many almost resemble artworks, which is why we have them on our tables and enjoy the wonderful photographs and drawings inside.
At Broseley, we work with many Interior Designers and we always recommend Philip Blackwell’s Ultimate Library. A library is such a relaxing and peaceful
place to be, and equally it can provide the perfect environment for some quiet work.
As the name of our blog, BRICKWORDS suggest, we think books and words are as important as bricks!
