Alma De Luce turns to Japan for inspiration to design its new jewelry closet. Fascinated by the traditional Japanese garment, the kimono, the designers have created a gorgeous jewelry closet that delves into history, elegance and symbolism. Interestingly, the word Kimono in Japanese means ‘to wear’ (ki meaning wear, mono meaning thing). The Kimono closet’s exterior is made of satin cotton fabric, while the interior and drawers are coated in a special effect (mother-of-pearl with gloss varnish). Beautiful pink cherry blossoms embroidered on the (Polar Night Blue) surface add elegance, alongside walnut wood accents with satin tassels on the door handle. The closet’s footer in walnut veneer has a gloss varnish.
