THE BIBLIOPHILE’S DESIGNER DEN, IN ASSOCIATION WITH HOUSE & GARDEN MAGAZINE
Loved for creating layered interiors that pull from multiple directions, Cape Town’s Liam Mooney is a proud part of our CoLab series. For his Design Joburg stand Liam is planning a home library that any bibliophile worth his salt will envy. “Think a writing den for a Tom Stoppard type of character,” Liam explains.
By conjuring a space that’s relaxed, comfortable, super stylish and filled with books - his ultimate décor accessory - Liam hopes to allow visitors to forget they’re in a hall and tell them a story about who might live in such a space and what their passions are.
Bringing the magic to his home library, Liam has collaborated with American Shutters to bring an architectural element to the stand, Traviata for his floors, Andrew Dominic on furniture and Crema for a handful of luxury European light fittings, not to mention featuring his own furniture pieces.
In keeping with the collaborative force behind Design Joburg, Liam has partnered with Fired Earth paint in creating his very own shade of yellow, look out for it at his stand and at Fired Earth’s retail pods where you can buy tins for your own home.
