A walk-in closet is a true object of desire, a complete, versatile solution to any domestic organization issue. Clothes, accessories and shoes: no personal item could fail to find its right place in such a rich array of shelves, storing units and modular furniture. Available options are many and suitable to any style and furnishing need. Even a small, 130x200cm walk-in closet, is the ideal tool to maximize space combining design and functionality, managing to contain more clothing items than a regular 6-door wardrobe. If duly equipped, its interior can be fully exploited from top to bottom, including corners.
Besides, it is not necessary to consecrate an entire room to it. A modern walk-in closet can occupy a single portion of a room and even be placed outside the sleeping quarters, in an otherwise barely utilized room. Be it horizontal or angular, with traditional or sliding doors, we will now lead you to discover our favorite models, real timeless, furnishing elements produced by the best international design brands. We have no doubt but you will certainly find the one most suitable for your needs.
Let’s start with the new, contemporary style Zenit collection designed by Giuseppe Bavuso for Rimadesio. An elegant combination of glass and aluminum that, besides being extremely lightweight, guarantees maximum matching freedom: each element, from structure to equipment, is entirely customizable. A great number of freely adjustable ledgers and drawers is available according to need.
Let us continue with the likewise refined, linear style of the Gliss Master collection by Vincent Van Duysen for Molteni: a system of wardrobes and walk-in closets offering linear and angular solutions in which precious materials beautifully enhance timeless shapes. Doors are made of either transparent glass or luxury wood, even with lacquered finish. One peculiarity of the collection is the presence of suspended drawers, available also with faux-leather drawer fronts.
If you are looking for a small walk-in wardrobe, Camerino DB by Caccaro is the thing for you. A hybrid solution, a walk-in closet where everything is at hand. Doors open completely, folding at the sides in order to save space. Modular in both width and depth, Camerino DB provides an ideal solution to small-sized interiors.
Designed by Officinadesign LEMA, Open provides a wholly new wardrobe experience. A boundless solution with no doors and made up of modular systems that can be adjusted to any kind of space. Transparency and minimalist style are the keywords to a project that ensures a sophisticated interior arrangement, made even more precious by leather and textile details.

Antibes by Piero Lissoni and CRS Boffi is a capacious, super accessorized new walk-in closet with single side panels and framework structure. It offers an articulated system of interior organization elements that allows to keep everything in order and handy at the same time: drawer units, shirt trays, shoe-shelves and LED lighting. Thermal Larch, Elm Wood, White Mel, Wood Grey finishing warm up each space, lending a sophisticated modern touch.
Formal solidity and geometric rigor are the key features to the new, modular walk-in closet Senzafine by Poliform, characterized by framework sides. The name itself (‘Senzafine’, e.g. ‘Endless’, editor’s note) evokes its extraordinary modularity and aesthetic variety, as well as the solidity and durability of melamine finishing, extremely resistant to both humidity and scratches.
Let’s present another project with a likewise meaningful name: Trust by Riva 1920. The refined brand is guarantee of high craftsmanship and quality materials, and Trust is no exception: a warm, cozy walk-in wardrobe, a snug corner where to enjoy the fragrance of cedar wood, a particular kind of wood that stands out for its anti-moth power. Interior optimization is provided by a multiplicity of optional elements and up-and-down panels.
Let us conclude with an original, timeless solution: Et Voilà by Lago, the only “dressable” walk-in closet ever. Daniele Lago signs an amazing project, a wardrobe hidden behind a technical textile drape deftly replacing doors, becoming a real furnishing element, a real dust- and wear-resistant textile wall. Pinpoint accuracy and interior customization are the key features to the stunning Et Voilà walk-in closet, which adds an actual theatrical twist to any sophisticated, unconventional home interior.
