PROJECT | Upper West Side Walk-In with Essential Elegance Inc.

When your Riverside Boulevard residence has state-of-the-art amenities and white glove service, your condo deserves a walk-in-closet that is equally as luxurious. This closet is a dream with its pristine, unobstructed views of the Hudson, a calming sight as you get ready for the day or evening ahead. Part of a larger renovation, this walk-in designed by transFORM Senior Designer Grazyna Gargas for a client of Essential Elegance Inc's Farzana Mamun, is as chic as it is functional.

Notable features include long-hanging sections with top shelving for handbags and hats, double-hanging for blouses and jackets, adjustable shoes shelving with shoe fences, and a center island with a bench, drawers, hampers, and a cleverly-concealed pull-out ironing board.

Recently we spoke with Farzana Mamun to learn how this project came to be.

What was the goal of this project?

We were renovating my client's condo and needed to convert a bedroom into a walk-in-closet.

What was your inspiration behind the design of the space?

A simple, chic & elegant custom closet with easy accessibility was a must for my client! 

How was your experience working with your transFORM designer?

Simply great! I contacted transFORM because I knew you would be the right company for the design I had in mind. Grazyna Gargas (Senior Designer) and Rozalia Kiss (Senior Design Manager) were both wonderful to collaborate with.

How has the closet enhanced your client’s lifestyle?

It has significantly improved now that she has an entire room for her own closet! The open shelving allows her to find everything she needs quickly, a must when she's in a hurry.

Lastly, where are your favorite places in NYC and Brooklyn?

I just adore Central Park and Dumbo!
