When New York native and talented actress, Emmy Rossum, purchased her very own home in Manhattan this year, the 800 square foot "pied-à-teardown" (as she lovingly called it) was in need of some work to open up the space's potential. Rossum contacted Elle Decor and The Container Store to help create a cohesive space with room to grow.

Emmy had an exact design in mind for what she wanted out of this Laren custom closet. She, with the help of our Laren Closet designer, Courtney Lomonaco, helped create a custom closet that showed off her impressive purse and shoe collection! She chose the Flint finish, which went perfectly with the wooden floors that they uncovered during the remodeling process.

With the addition of Clear Shelf Dividers that created a designated space for each purse, and Valet Rods that made her ability to hang and access whatever she needed with a simple pull, Emmy was able to fit her entire collection of clothes, purses and shoes into the closet that before had only hanging space. Chrome Artisan Knobs accented the Flint finish with subtle elegance that partnered perfectly with the rest of the closet.

Well we think Emmy created a "pied-à-teardown" that she'll be proud to call home for years to come. Both reflective of her sophisticated personal style and need for polished organization. To read the full story, visit Elle Decor, here!
