Design Profile – Thatcher Wine – Juniper BooksApril 30th, 2010
Since 2001, Juniper Books has been designing and developing custom libraries for residential and commercial applications. As an outgrowth of owner Thatcher Wine’s antiquarian and collectible books business, Juniper has become the leader in the growing sector of custom libraries. Working with homeowners, yacht owners, interior designers, set designers, visual merchandisers and businesses, the word of mouth and praise that Thatcher and Juniper receive has allowed the business to continue to grow since its conception. With an unerring eye and a keen knowledge of book buying and book binding, Thatcher Wine crafts custom book collections in a matter of weeks, rather than months for his clients.
Working with interior designers, architects, or directly with the homeowner, Thatcher builds libraries based on the needs and desires of the owners taste and visual aesthetic. If a homeowner prefers to have his or her collection of rare books all in the same distressed leather with gold embossed lettering, Juniper will design it. If they prefer to use a coordinating fabric to go with the décor of the room, Juniper will work with the designer to order the fabric and cover each book. The residential market for custom libraries is quite diverse: primary homes, second homes, yachts, luxury motor coaches. And the types of books are equally diverse: rare and collectibles, particular authors, medical journals, geography, biographies, autobiographies, the list is endless.
