Picture this: you’re sitting in a velvet wingback chair staring pensively at your worn copy of War and Peace (because, ya know, you’ve read it 23,592 times), sipping a snifter of aged brandy, presumably. The walls are lined with cherry bookshelves that are, of course, well-stocked but simultaneously styled with things like an heirloom ship model and iron Scottie dog bookends. Maybe throw in a marble bust or two.

Now, those amazing antique knickknacks that make your study look like a cross between a scene from Dead Poets Society and Winston Churchill’s library (I imagine) can be bought in Duke & Winston‘s fantastically curated new antique section, Duke’s Library. Items are pricey, but they do all the culling and heavy-lifting, leaving you with the most charming selection of preppy odds and ends to outfit your shelves.
