Q: I am in desperate need for major shoe storage for my apartment. I am well past the usual 12-pair display rack that one would get at Bed, Bath & Beyond or something. I need a big mamma jamma! Ideally, I'd get the same rack that Jenna Lyons has in her closet (see picture). Any ideas where I could find something like this? Thanks!

Editor: This is an impressive closet — one well-deserved for the creative director of J.Crew. While few of us have similar storage space in New York, the shoe rack in question looks industrial and is most likely custom made, extremely expensive or both.
Thick glass shelves and extremely tall, I'd look for something similar at Two Jakes — perhaps a used Metro shelf could be a suitable alternative. Also, a customized Metro shelf is available from The Container Store — the InterMetro Line has narrow 14" deep shelves, ideal for shoes!
Who else has suggestions for Brandi?
