Clever Closet Company was established in 1987 by Sydney based designer Sally Hart, who continues to be the owner, operator and principle designer in the company.
Sally started Clever Closet Company in partnership with a cabinetmaker. Over the years, Sally decided her business served her clients better as an independent designer with a vision for better storage solutions.
Beautiful design that is functional and practical
Sally Hart sees space in a unique way and has a special aptitude for designing beautiful, functional, organised storage, driven by a passion for helping her clients gain freedom through organisation.
Sally’s approach is solutions oriented. Sally brings to her work decades of experience designing wardrobes, utility storage and high end feature furniture pieces, Furniture designed by Sally combines the aesthetic and functional.
This is an achievement that is rarely simple when dealing with competing elements such as space limitations, architectural suitability, aesthetics, storage maximisation and ergonomics. The way Sally balances these elements means her clients are freed from the frustrations that inevitably lead to frequently re-arranging their cupboards. In the optimally designed spaces Sally creates, everything just stays organised and immediately accessible.
Sally Hart is Sydney’s leading wardrobe and storage designer. Sally’s achievements have been recognised repeatedly over the years and most recently through being awarded the highly esteemed Best of Houzz Award 2015 for service.
It’s rare to find a readymade piece of furniture that suits your needs exactly. The more functionality you need in that piece of furniture, the less chance a readymade piece will suit. One size does not fit all in the case of great storage.
Well-designed storage is essential to any properly functioning home. It’s fundamental for managing routine household activities. Without intelligently designed storage efficiency is almost unattainable. Sadly people frequently don’t realise it’s the “tool”, rather than them, which is not working effectively. This is why clients say “they have their life back” after one of our installations. Unfortunately, most people cannot recognise why a design will or won’t work, especially on paper. This is why Sally’s design expertise in functionality and life experience is so valuable in the design process.
Intelligently designed custom cabinetry comes to fore in utility areas such as laundries, and home offices as well as living room spaces where an integrated look is desired. There are many elements to consider in the design process and they often conflict. It’s a balance between what will look great, provide access, maximise storage, enhance the room and function conveniently.
The Clever Closet Company worked hard while I revised the brief for our dressing room three times. Sally understood the aesthetic and practical requirements for our space and came up with something that allowed us to reflect the mid-century origins of the house in a modern and practical framework. Her recommended suppliers worked hard to ensure the finished product was as seamless as the drawings (not easy when there isn’t a straight line in the house). We particularly like the fact that everything floats from the back walls, making the space as big and airy as it can be. She understood exactly how much hanging space and shoe space we really needed.Sarah Hart Sydney N.S.W
We rang Sally after endless frustration with mainstream wardrobe companies not listening to what we wanted. Our brief was wardrobe solutions & create a better desk/shelf area in our front entrance.
Sally was amazing. Completely understood the brief on what we were after. Listened & has great ideas. She is highly experienced & a pleasure to work with. It is so refreshing to work with someone with her level of experience who didn’t spend tell us what we couldn’t do. Sally is completely solutions orientated.
We would highly recommend Sally.Jen MullineuxSydney N.S.W
Good Morning Sally
I guess you are appreciating a day off today after your busy day yesterday.
Both David and I wish to thank you most sincerely for the exceptional effort you have displayed in designing our new closet. Really,it is almost as big as an entire room.
It has been an exciting journey from the very beginning and finished with such flair yesterday with the photo shoot. Your connection with Howards is certainly appreciated as the hangers and accessories added the finishing touch. We now have a CLEVER CLOSET.
Warm HUGS to everyone who has been involved.Lesley & David CalverPaddington N.S.W
