Near the top of Lori Goldstein’s wish list for her new Joe D’Urso-designed New York City apartment: a closet large enough to house her ever-expanding wardrobe. That was a tall order. The former fashion stylist for such brands as Prada and Versace, now a QVC star with her own LOGO label, has a bursting-at-the-seams collection of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and designer purses. (Jokes her friend Isaac Mizrahi: “Lori has four handbags for every day she’s been alive on earth.”)

White marble from ABC Stone tops a custom dressing table. The vintage Karl Springer bench is from Lobel Modern, the pendant is from 2Modern, the photograph of John Lennon and Yoko Ono is by Annie Leibovitz, and the artwork (top right) is by Aaron Favaloro.

D’Urso collaborated with California Closets to convert a hallway and smaller closets into a made-to-order boudoir. The tops of the shelving units were finished with mahogany, and a dressing table and built-in drawers were topped with white marble. “That really jazzed it up,” D’Urso notes. What’s more, Goldstein says, using rich materials in the closet helps it feel of a piece with the design of the rest of the apartment.

Aesthetics aside, Goldstein’s goal was a hyper-organized space where she could easily locate all of her clothes and accessories (“I like to see everything I have, so I remember I have it”), as well as an area for dressing. “Everything hangs in its own category,” she says. “All of my tanks and layering pieces are LOGO; I get them in every color. I have Victorian eyelet tops by every favorite designer of mine, and Hermès bags are an obsession. But since I love shopping, I do get rid of things too. It’s an ebb and flow.”

To create continuity with his client’s exuberantly decorated home, D’Urso furnished the closet to the nines. “There are six lamps, from Kartell to Apparatus, and there is wall-to-wall leopard carpeting and a gorgeous pouf,” Goldstein notes.

I love my closet as much as any other room in the apartment.

"Sometimes more. I’ve finally got the closet of my dreams.”
