The brand new Ledding Library in Milwaukie, Oregon accomplishes far more than just housing books. The Ledding Library is the epicenter for community engagement and connection for the people living in Milwaukie.

Located on the edge of downtown’s greenbelt, this library was designed to bring people together and bring the outdoor scenes and colors, indoors.


With large, floor-to-ceiling windows offering scenic views of local wildlife, forests, and wetlands, our goal was to select furniture, finishes, and colors, that complimented the Pacific Northwest themed library. Equally important, we wanted to provide furnishings that would be cozy for guests and durable for crowds.
