Hi, I’m Lisa Adams, founder of lifestyle blog, CLOSETPHILE, and luxury closet design firm, LA Closet Design. Over the years, I’ve worked with celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Khloe Kardashian and Tyra Banks to design the dressing rooms of their dreams. And, along the way, I met the venerable pair behind Consort, Mat and Brandon.
I’m beyond thrilled for my talented pals on the launch of Consort Collection. The detail-focused design duo is continually challenging traditions and infusing personality and whimsy into their work that is inspiring to me and the industry at large. I’m blown away by what they’ve created with this collection -- everything is so versatile and beautiful!
For the closet enthusiasts out there, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pieces from the line and the different ways you can incorporate them into your own closet.
Utility is often the cornerstone of storage pieces; but, this dresser offers so many great design elements -- from the half-moon brass pulls to the lacquered finish. Perfect for storing folded items like tees and workout wear, it’s as functional as it is stylish.
BANDEAU DINING CHAIR
Many would see this as a beautiful dining chair (and it is!); however, I also see a sleek and chic chair with minimal design and maximum impact. Use it as a feminine seating option at your vanity.
I’m a big believer in having a central item in the closet for sitting, putting on shoes and laying out a suitcase, and this gorgeous ottoman offers all that and more.
I love that this piece can work as a stylish stand-in bureau for those who don’t have one built in. You can fold items like undergarments and hosiery in the drawers and use the space above for floating shelves to stage your favorite shoes and accessories.
This stunning marble table could be used in a number of ways in the closet, but I envision using the top shelf for lining up clutches and handbags (separate using shelf dividers), and the lower shelf for storing tall boots. Alternatively, you could hang purse hooks below the top shelf to store totes.
For closets that don’t have the space for a large ottoman, this is a fun and fashionable alternative. It could also be used as a seat at a vanity or in a staging area for trying on shoes.
I’m all about transparent and acrylic pieces right now, and this unexpected table would pair perfectly with a chair in a dressing room. It could also serve as a display area to showcase accessories, jewelry and sunglasses (top it with an acrylic tray for an added pop of clear!).
