After their children moved out, Chantal and Dominique decided to give the house they had lived in for 30 years a radical make-over, abandoning the farmhouse style for a more contemporary feel with the help of USM storage units and bookshelves. On the second floor, they created an expansive office-library, where the impressive collection of books, once scattered throughout the house, finally found a showcase suitable for its size on a modular shelving unit. USM’s furniture design enticed the couple, and its modularity was the convincing factor. Their library project was developed as an ensemble of functional parts: a reading table, cabinets of various sizes, the integration of doors to create storage space – and for color, a warm, bright yellow to create a "very playful experience,” Chantal said. In addition, various base units fill the room, creating a pleasant space to relax or work. Alongside the majestic old beams, USM shelves enhance the old architectural details while still seeming natural. The contemporary makeover was a complete success.
