It’s about the details. Today’s multi-faceted lifestyle demands something more than a clothing rod behind bi-folding doors or built-in shelves in a blank kitchen space. The rise of a multi-functional space has further increased the need for more storage options in the home.

For the discerning homeowner, their closet or pantry is never just that. It’s a space that keeps with the beauty and heritage of the home it adorns while serving very practical and functional purposes. As a fine custom cabinetry manufacturer, Wood-Mode has been crafting this blend of innovative storage elements, fine craftsmanship and enhanced rich finishes for more than 70 years.

“Consumers have been expressing a greater need for functionality with a desire for solutions in unique storage options,” says John Troxell, Director of Design, Wood-Mode. “Our answer to this has been the ongoing development of systems that efficiently and beautifully maximize space.”

This particular drawer from Wood-Mode features acrylic dividers that allow additional organization.

Why hunt in the closet for what you need when you can bring the contents of the closet out to you?

“As a universal design solution, pull-out towers can provide accessible storage in virtually any room,” says Troxell.

Pullout towers provides a quick visual access to shoes, scarves, ties and a multitude of items such as lint brushes, sewing kits and pocket change. It’s available in five widths and four heights for both framed and frameless cabinetry.

This particular drawer features a unique insert on the top edge of the unit that helps keep slacks from sliding off the wooden hanging slat.

Each unit starts with hand-selecting quality lumber which is then seasoned and kiln-dried on site until it meets the standards of use for fine furniture. It’s then finished, hand assembled, and individually inspected for quality. For more information about the quality materials and techniques used with every Wood-Mode cabinet, visit
