Robert Gudanets: Custom Furniture and Luxury Closet Specialist


About Robert Gudanets, Senior Designer at ValetFor close to 15 years, Robert Gudanets worked for a custom furniture and closet company in San Carlos. When it went out of business, it was the perfect opportunity for Robert to check out Valet, which he had heard great things about and was much closer to his home. He met with Larry Fox, they both decided it was a good fit, and so Robert joined the Valet team in 2003.

Robert is a graduate of the Academy of the Republic Belarus and immigrated to the United States in 1989. He had experience working in the design field in school and created industrial art, both of which translated into the closet and cabinet design field quite nicely.

His area of expertise lies in custom furniture and luxury closets. Robert enjoys working on these types of projects because he feels that the design is what really matters and makes the most impact in these jobs. He really likes creating “contemporary, streamlined, European-type systems.”

Robert finds great satisfaction in helping people with their homes. Whether a client needs to be more organized, needs to improve the storage capacity of a space, or if there is some other situation where a customer will benefit from a custom design, Robert will always gladly help to create an elegant solution for the problem.

In 2016, Valet has been discovering and investing in new software, new machinery, and new materials. A renovation of our Campbell Showroom in currently underway, and Robert is thrilled with the new developments. “I’m really looking forward to all of the new tech,” Robert says. “The customers will really benefit with a higher quality product, as well as the exciting new materials and product options.”

He can often be found hiking, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, and traveling in general. He is an avid swimmer and belongs to a Swimmer’s Master Program.
