A Dream Dressing Room from Sweden

A perfect combination: a dressing room with built-in closets, a place to perch, and a mine-and-yours sink (plus an adjacent bath). This paneled, shades-of-gray design is the work of Kvänum of West Gotland, Sweden, specialists in traditional millwork and an official supplier to the Swedish Royal Court. It’s in one of their showrooms—so it’s a dream closet, but a lovely one. Take a look.

The leather-and-wood hanging bar is another Kvänum detail: the company, which dates to 1923, specializes in custom kitchens and closets created from elements in its catalogue: this is the Modern Classic Dressing Room in Ekeby Forest Green, an in-house paint color.
