Think of the den as your home’s sanctum. It’s where you go to think, relax, or just retreat from it all. When you close the doors to your den, nothing can bother you.

A traditional den uses rich finishes and lush textures to create a sense of comfort and refuge. Built-in bookcases are perfect here for displaying personal keepsakes and favorite books. And a den doesn’t need too much space — just enough for you and your inner circle.
