A few months ago Natalie of Natalie Haegeman Interiors contacted us asking for help with the realization of a library project for one of her Belgian clients.
As my company Lefèvre Interiors is specialized in made-to-measure and custom-made cabinetry and paneling, we were very pleased with the opportunity to help Natalie with the project she had in mind.
Natalie started sketching the library and shared thoughts with her client.
Current situation of the library room.
Many meetings later, my husband Jan took all the required measurements and worked out the technical plan of the library room.

Natalie’s client absolutely preferred to use French oak for the cabinetry.

At this moment, about 3 months later, the execution of the library in the Lefevre Interiors workshop is almost finished.
Before leaving to our client’s home, we always build up the room in our workshop, which gives our craftsmen the opportunity to work out, in a comfortable way, all the details, as placing profiles, corniches,…to make sure the installation at the client’s home will progress as required.
The library built up at our workshop.
As you can see it is a very large room. More or less all cabinets are built up and we now have to place shelving and profiles.
Even the beautiful double doors to the other rooms (I haven’t pictures of them yet) are made in our company and have to be installed next week.

The library will move to Natalie’s client’s home within a few days!
Jan and me love working together with interior designers and architects. Sharing thoughts about design and construction is an opportunity to learn a lot from each other.
As Natalie is an interior designer, she will decorate this library room with her own collection of fabrics and furniture.
So both, Natalie and me, can’t wait to see this library project finished !
To be continued…
Don’t hesitate to contact Natalie at firstname.lastname@example.org or to contact me at email@example.com , if you would love to help us with the design of your library or interior project. We would be pleased to help you.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
I would bet that your workshop smells wonderful! I love the smell of freshly cut wood. Also, I must be a fascinating journey, planning and implementing a client's dream. Thank you for the peek!…..smiles
Natalie told me that you two were working on a library, what a stunning space you will both create and what a wonderful way to work, together on such a project, the powers of the internet and blog land! I can't wait to see the finished product Greet.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, it sure is cold and will continue to be this week here in Belgium, I will light a fire this evening and my daughter and I will enjoy a tasty fondu to help to keep us warm and cozy.
