Initial Briefing: We will meet you to discuss the project and your specific book and design requirements. We then provide a full brief of the project, including a guest and brand profile, and a clear, comprehensive costing.
Curation: Our team of library consultants and expert booksellers will choose, acquire and collate your book collection. We are uniquely able to source old, new and antiquarian books allowing us to provide an original, comprehensive library. Every book will have justified its place in your library on the quality, relevance or beauty of its contents. Each one is chosen with your guests in mind.
Installation: We understand the importance of providing a beautifully presented room or collection. Your library will be delivered and installed by our team of experts. We will discuss your design requirements with you in the preliminary stages and will work alongside your design team to ensure your library is a talking point amongst your guests.
Future Service: Our team will remain in contact to ensure the ongoing success of your library. We can advise on seasonal updates or new publications that will compliment your collection and ensure it continues to accurately reflect your brand. We can also provide a recommended reading list service. For London-based hotels we offer a free of charge book delivery service for guests.
