No, they do not! The room looks bright in this photo because the lights are also on. When the lights are off, and you're simply relying on the solar tubes, it puts off a very soft light that does not damage clothes. Thanks!

By the way, I didn't mean to put that compliment on the closet above! :) It was meant for your work in general! Operator error.

Love the island - We are in the process of seeking quotes for our master closet and I'm so happy to run across your beautiful design. Could you please tell me where the island was purchased? Thank you.

do the solar tubes light the room with the lights off? - Do the solar tubes work well? Would a skylight heat the closet too much?

Solarise Tube Skylights
Im not sure why this picture was taken with the light on as well. Some solar tubes dont light up as well, like box store items. Another option to Solatube or Velux is Sun Glo. You can find information at

I'm not sure of the exact dimensions of this closet, but this ideabook may point you in the right direction for estimating dimensions in a space.

I am not sure what brand they are, but they are from Nob Hill Hardware in Minnesota. Call and ask for Linda. Reference the 2011 John Kraemer & Sons Luxury Home Tour house. Thanks!
