As part of the ASID Texas-Oklahoma Chapter’s SpringBoard to Design event, we are hosting a happy hour in our beautiful Austin showroom off of 5th and Lamar. During the course of this all-day event on May 18th, enjoy a breakfast and lunch during the classes, which begin at 10am. Following this, come see us in our showroom from 4-6pm for the opportunity to mingle with your fellow trades people, develop your network, and chat about what you learned from the event’s presenters.
What can the participants expect to hear about? There will be a colorful start to the morning as Feras Irikat of Ocean Side Glass Tile gets the ball rolling with a presentation on color theory and how to apply it to your work. Design elements in residential kitchens will follow, as well as a lecture on energy efficient lighting. Other topics you can expect throughout the day include sustainable design in your business, architectural glass and its applications, and a legislative talk from Marilyn Roberts, ASID, RID of Stone Solutions.
Keep in mind that, though our happy hour from 4-6pm in our showroom is the grand finale of an ASID event, we are encouraging anyone in the field interested in networking to join us. We are looking forward to seeing your bright faces there!

Happy almost Spring, everyone! I am looking forward to blue skies and higher temps although I have enjoyed the actual winter that we experienced in Central TX. We are busy, busy here at CC – lots going on!! We are launching our spring-cleaning special – complimentary professional organizing with purchase! Click here for more information….
Also, working on a six figure installation outside of San Antone, doing a lot of special finishes and custom work as well as our 3form accents. The home is AMAZING – I’ll be blogging more about it and posting pictures, as we get closer to the installation, which should be in April. The home is Japan meets the TX hill country and is owned by a couple of famous authors whose work I very much admire.
Also, California Closets of the Texas Hill Country is launching our new wood program. The finishes are beautiful – there are four of them from Maple to Espresso. We just installed our second project in wood in San Antonio. Here is a photo. We will also be installing a gorgeous espresso stained wood system at the Broadway model unit in Alamo Heights – pics to come, of course!
In more news, we are working on 4 showcase houses at the moment. Two at the Austonian, one at the Parade in Austin and the other in San Antonio at the Vidorra for the Junior League Showcase house. We are excited about all of these and to share our product and designs with the public – we put al lot of LOVE into our work to showcase the very best of what California Closets can do for the home.
We are also making some changes at both of our showrooms. In Austin we are adding high-gloss doors to our beautiful library system on the back wall; there are a couple of Mocha pairs and Ivory pairs. We are also adding 3form door insert to our wine bar in Fossil Leaf and we are super excited about that. In San Antonio we are adding a wall bed in one of our new wood finishes – we are working in the designs now and cannot wait to get that installed.
So, like I said, lots going on. In a company dedicated to progression, innovation and excellence, there is never a dull moment!
It is great to take a moment and reflect on what we are up to and share the info with others – thanks for reading. I wish you organized closets, beautiful interiors and stress free living in Spring 2010!

Welcome to my blog about California Closets of the Texas Hill County and all things custom storage! Our fabulous company has been serving San Antonio, Austin and Corpus Christi since 1983! I know…blah, blah, blah, but the great thing about this is that we have systems out there that are 27 years old and we still service and warranty those products – how awesome is that?!? And when you have the history that we do in the Austin and San Antonio communities and you regularly see and maintain custom storage systems not only do you get to see how California Closets has evolved over the many years since we pioneered the storage industry but you get to hear how much people have enjoyed our systems over the course of years! To be able to hear how our clients are still happy and the difference that our products and services make in peoples lives is such a joy and privilege.
Obviously, I am very passionate about our company for the fore mentioned reason but also because of the people that work here. We are proud to employ 23 Central Texans who enjoy their work at California Closets and strive to deliver the goods each and every day! We offer the highest quality product in the marketplace and we have very discerning clients. All of us strive to not just meet but to exceed expectations. We have team members that have been with California Closets for over 20 years (Stephanie, Design Consultant) and 15 years (Kenny, Installation Technician) –we have the BEST and most EXPERIENCED in the business bar none! From our Production Supervisor, German who has been with us 6 years to Mark, Installation Technician who has worked his way up from production Staff to Installation Technician over his 7 years to Sue, Design Consultant who has worked here for over 6 years —These people inspire me each and every day and I am grateful to work each day with them and the rest of our talented and dedicated team! I myself have been with California Closets since 2002 when I started as a Design Consultant in Seattle. Eight years later I own this franchise along with my husband, Daniel, who formerly worked with our corporate office. What a great career one can have at California Closets. When you sell, manufacture and design handcrafted custom systems and furniture it is important to have the very best personnel – and California Closets of the Texas Hill Country has that inspades!
At California Closets, we are always innovating with new products and offerings – big and small – and there is always a story to tell. Our BIGGEST news as of late is our new custom furniture offering! We are very fortunate to have artisan on staff here to assist with these types of pieces.
See our custom work on our Facebook page here: California Closets Custom Portfolio
We are very excited to have the skill and expertise with our Design, Manufacturing and Installation teams to create these projects — some of the many things that make California Closets different and unique.
The life of a California Closets owner is never dull and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you – Cheers!
