We've long had "organize closet" on our to-do list, but it never seems to happen. Now that we've become acquainted with Lisa Adams of LA Closet Design, we're moving it to the top of our list.
Adams's company makes wow-worthy closet systems, customizing templates such as the classic white closet (a corner carousel, overhead chandelier and central tufted ottoman) and the sleek living space closet (mirrored doors, deep glass-front drawers and a central TV island).
She also provides new à la carte services including what she calls the "day of purging," in which she walks clients through closet contents and suggests what to discard. But our favorite pieces of Adams's work are her Döttling safes, a line of überluxe safes that are custom made in Germany to fit everything from watches to jewelry to firearms. The safes are hand-crafted using centuries-old locksmithing techniques, then finished with exotic leathers and gilt hardware.
These safes start at $100,000 and can range well past $1 million, so perhaps we'll start small in our closet makeover, with Adams's accessories including sweater cases ($46), silk-and-linen sachets ($37) and "any-straps" hangers (50 for $185).
