NO CLOSET IS AN ISLAND
Now referred to as the "dressing suite," today's once-humble closet comes equipped with every luxury to ensure a stress-free start to your day. Check out this center island from the National Closet Group's Siena Collection, which gives you a place to arrange your jewelry and store shirts. Some islands have a bench on the end so you can tie your shoelaces in comfort.
