Walk in Closet with storage for Shoes and Handbags by Tim Wood

Traditional Closet, London

This walk in closet is part of a large property in central London. The client asked Tim Wood to come up with a storage solution for her extensvie collection of shoes and handbags. Tim Wood designed and made shelving that would accommodate the exact proportions of her shoes. The rails that the handbags hang from were all specially moulded to echo the exact shape of the clients shoulder, so that they could retain their shape perfectly. The closet houses over two hundred pairs of shoes, and can easily be expanded further to accommodate new purchases. The client is thrilled with this totally bespoke walk in closet that houses her prized collection of shoes such as Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Louboutin, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce Gabbana, Manolo Blanik, Emma Hope, Salvatore Ferragamo, Lanvin, Paul Smith and Guiseppe Zanotti. The client has over seventy five handbags such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi, Dior, Gucci, Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo, Bill Amberg, Lanvin, Mulberry, Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Dolce Gabbana, Michael Kors, Vivienne Westwood, Moschino, Diane von Furstenberg, Lulu Guinness, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Miu Miiu and Burberry. Designed, hand built and photography by Tim Wood

    The width and depth of the shelves were determined by my clients shoe size!!!

    So what was right for her, probably would not be right for you. If you measure your average, smallest and largest shoe sizes, the number of shoes you have and the given space, you should be able to work out what will fit in.

    Good luck.

    Kind regards
