Great Estates with Luxurious Closets

Chicly cosmopolitan or ultra-modern, there’s a closet styled for every look, on and off the runway

These homes all boast spacious, beautifully designed closets, with plenty of the sorts of personal touches, from soft carpet to eye-catching light fixtures, that make a space personal. Spectacular closets are an extension of the decoration and design of a home, and should reflect their owners’ personal taste in fashion, from the feminine and romantic to the modern and urbane.
