Bedroom Secret: A Valet Keeps Clutter at Bay

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 Sí¸ren 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. 

Above: Sí¸ren Rose Studio reinterprets the clothes valet with minimal and contemporary detailing. Available finishes include oiled walnut, oak, and black-stained wood.

Above: Used in a traditional way, the valet accommodates a jacket and a pair of trousers; it’s 48 inches tall, 18 1/2 inches wide, and 14 inches deep. 

Above: A drop-in tray holds small accessories and loose change.

Above: Modern-day accoutrements like smart phones have been taken into account in the design.

Above: A shelf at the bottom is handy for shoes or even books. See Sí¸ren Rose Studio for direct purchasing information.
