Where do you put the clothes you've worn that day that aren't dirty enough to go in the hamper, nor clean enough to go back in the drawer? I'm guessing people are content to throw them on a chair or treadmill. Antique clothes valets were designed for this purpose, but their aesthetic doesn't fit with modern décor. I'd make an argument that this Arch Clothes Valet does.
It was designed bySofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, the duo behind Swedish design studio Front. And if something about the bentwood elements seems familiar to you...
...it's purely intentional: The piece was designed for and is in production by GTV. That's Gebrueder Thonet Vienna, the Austrian furniture company founded in 1853 by the Thonet brothers, who of course brought us the iconic Thonet chair (which GTV still produces).
