Q: My fiance and I are purchasing our first apartment! We're very excited to move from our 300 square foot converted studio into a proper one bedroom — 510 square feet! In the spirit of making our bedroom a sanctuary free of visual clutter, we've decided to use the entire leftmost wall of the room for clothing storage...
After following up on a recent Dwell article on closet systems, I fell in love with the photos of the Gliss 5th system, made by Molteni & C. I love the idea of a wall of warm wooden-looking panels concealing all of the storage!
I'm writing because I haven't been able to figure out where one can order this Italian-made system in the US. All attempts to find out, including contacting Molteni, have not yielded results. Has anyone seen this system and/or know where to find it in the US?
My second motive is to find out if any Apartment Therapy readers know of another closet system (must fit in a 30"deep space) with a similar look and feel that I might be able to explore as an alternative. Perhaps there's something better out there that I'm not aware of, or maybe Gliss 5th will be astronomically expensive.
Thanks so much!

Editor - My guess is YES, Gliss 5th is going to be expensive BUT there is a New York Flagship store in SoHo: Molteni&C Dada Unifor - Flagship Store 60 Greene St. New York, NY 10012 — and the systems are sold in 10 major cities in the US, listed here.
Who has suggestions for less expensive options?
