Reader's Delight
The library is still a work in progress (Mindy hasn't settled on a desk or curtains yet), but it's well stocked with thrillers, farm manuals, and classic novels. A sofa upholstered in paisley silk and wool by Christopher Hyland and a Lee Jofa Furniture skirted chair cozy up to a Ralph Lauren Home crocodile and steel table. In the foreground, one of Mindy's favorite pieces: an antique Hunzinger lollipop chair, sized for the petite and "definitely not for my husband—he's not allowed to sit on it."
