New Florense designs are out of the closet
Most homeowners would rather die than open their messy closets to public inspection, but new offerings from Florense could change how we view mere clothing storage by introducing the new Open 4 system, in partnership with Italian designer Lorenzo Negrello from SI Studio. It includes everything from wardrobes to walk-in accessories and was designed so that clients can select from a range of customized fronts and openings—including sliding door mechanisms—without altering the internal layout. The walk-in design above is a modern version of the closet-as-living-space strategy, moving past boudoir and into sleek style.
