Bedroom Secret: A Valet Keeps Clutter at Bay

Issue 1 · New Beginnings · January 7, 2014

The most effective way to corral daily wardrobe essentials is a clothes valet. A definite upgrade from the bedroom chair, a well-designed valet will keep all your accessories in one place. We are particularly drawn to this modern reinterpretation by Søren Rose Studio of Copenhagen and New York. Crafted from walnut or oak, the Gentleman's Valet is detailed with an upper and lower shelf and can even stand in as a bedside table.
