Great in the library, wood paneling, built in bookcases and embrasured shutters. Raised panel shutters that fold into pockets built into the window jamb. This is a clever architectural detail used in the 18th and 19th Centuries when brick homes required a wall of exceptional thickness, often exceeded 12 to 14 inches. This provided a deep window jamb, which served to conveniently store the shutters when they were open. Great shutter resource http://www.shutterblinds.com/raised_panel.html
