Design integrity cannot be undervalued, whether you’re working on a historic renovation or incorporating a piece of antiquity into a modern interior. A living archive is a precious resource which can only exist where heritage and provenance are respected. Style Library Contract’s dedicated design studios capture this ethos perfectly, creating authentic designs that are relevant for today’s interiors.
