Part dressing room, part exhibition space, the most utilitarian space of the house is getting a serious upgrade.
In a perfect pairing, high design and haute couture have brought their fashion sense to one of the more utilitarian spaces of the house—the closet—transforming it from a storage work horse to a chic clothes horse.
“The walk-in wardrobe is very much a statement piece, a badge of honor,” said Philipp Nagel, director and co-owner of the bespoke London-based wardrobe company Neatsmith, adding that he created a £40,000 (US$51,315) walk-in closet for a male client on Bishops Avenue, which is also known as Billionaires’ Row. “People like to show them off.”
Ryan Serhant of The Serhant Team at Nest Seekers International and a star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York” and “Sell It Like Serhant,” concurred, adding, “It’s not so much about hanging up clothes as it is about selling a lifestyle in an Instagram world.”
With prices ranging from $25,000 to $500,000 and amenities like TVs, bars, vanities, cosmetic refrigerators, coffee makers, jewelry drawers, safes and even putting greens, some of these newly clad closets are being used as living rooms, offices, dressing rooms and entertainment venues.
