A Dream Dressing Room from Sweden

October 30, 2020

A perfect combination: a dressing room with built-in closets, a place to perch, and a mine-and-yours sink (plus an adjacent bath). This paneled, shades-of-gray design is the work of Kvänum of West Gotland, Sweden, specialists in traditional millwork and an official supplier to the Swedish Royal Court. It’s in one of their showrooms—so it’s a conceptual closet, but a lovely one. Take a look.
