Gothic Revival Chapel ResidenceTraditional Games Room, Philadelphia

This is a library we built last year that became a centerpiece feature in "The Classical American House" book by Phillip James Dodd. We are also featured on the back cover. Asked to replicate and finish to match with new materials, we built this 16' high room using only the original Gothic arches that were existing. All other materials are new and finished to match. We thank John Milner Architects for the opportunity and the results are spectacular.

this is an example of harmony. The variety harmony seen in the design means there was a combining of different styles and materials. The old fashioned library, vases, and statues mixed with the different colors furniture creates this variety harmony.

Like the feel of the dark wood - not style
