Cooler weather will be here before we know it, so you might as well gear up for fall by making sure there’s a few extra hooks for hanging up all those scarves, hats and coats.

Equilateral Nails

No, these aren’t earrings, they’re nails. Why would we need decorative nails? Why do we need decorative anything? Maybe ‘need’ is the wrong word.The purists among us might scoff at beautifying the humble nail, but, for jewelry or other small trinkets or photos, the triangle head and post (made of hand cast bronze) does justice to our finer, special things.

Corner Hanging Bar

What is this, you ask? It’s a Corner Hanging Bar, and it has come to rescue that pile of clothes on the floor. Now, this might be handier to have during the winter months, as there are all sorts of scarves and coats and such that seemingly multiply without so much as a second glance, but summer has its array of accessories as well. And, if you need some extra hanging space, this bar is a heck of a lot prettier than this guy, so you could put it out in the open in an unused corner space and not worry about building out an actual closet.

Peg Board

The old peg board: we all know it has its usefulness, but it could stand for a makeover. That’s the thought behind Human Crafted’s Peg Board. Made by hand from machined walnut, each board also comes with a bungee cord, which gives the board various storage functions. Choose a few accessory hooks and you have more possible customizations for specific items (kitchen tools, keys, etc.). Combine all three sizes for a bigger board, or just choose one for your essentials.

Glass Knobs by Tom Dixon

Pretty, aren’t they? Each Glass Knob is made of extra thick pressed glass, just like you’ve seen in head lamps or those older glass insulators. With two sizes and a few different colors, you have the opportunity to create an interesting art installation as well as a useful group of hooks for clothes and bags. Install a few in the entryway, or a bunch in the bedroom. Either way you’ll have art all the time and a storage option whenever you need it.

SR Wall Hooks

If you’re absolutely sick of scrubbing out the words ‘Drunk Octopus wants to fight you’ around the vicinity of that ubiquitous two-pronged hook (you know the one I mean), may I direct you towards Scout Regalia’s Wall Hooks? There’s no off-kilter eye and the tentacles are decidedly steadfast and sober, so it won’t inspire any more graffiti upon your walls. However, your friends could be absolute savages when it comes to writing implements and vertical surfaces, and, in that case, all I can do is wish you the best of luck. The SR Wall Hook is made of heavy gauge powder coated steel and available in a pleasing array of colors.

Pendura Coat Stand

Maybe you’re lucky and this coat stand can be shipped to you, but I plugged in Texas as a destination and I was out of luck. It’s a simple, triangular-shaped coat stand, and that’s exactly what makes it special. Angled notches on the front and back allow for coat/clothes and bag storage, and it just leans against the wall, so it’s easy to move anywhere you need it most.

Hay Ash Wood Wall Hook

As you might have guessed, this Ash Wood Wall Hook is made from a steamed strip of solid ash wood. The two upward ends provide a resting place for all manner of accessories while the curved bow allows for a gentle hold of sweaters and coats without the bothersome indentation you’d get from other small hooks. It’s a smart choice for an entryway or bedroom, or wherever else you need a tiny bit of extra clothes storage.

Cliq

If we all had an unlimited budget for closet storage, there’s little doubt we’d all want to try out Cliq, a hookless hanger. Holding up to two kilogram (4.4 lbs.), each Cliq can be used on any metallic surface and easily slides sideways- similar to a regular hanger. You’ll have to see the video below to get the whole idea, and then figure out if the sleek, minimal look is worth the cost.

Keyplate

This might not be to everyone’s taste considering its very utilitarian appearance, but it certainly will come in handy to anyone who tends to misplace their keys or other small, important things. The Keyplate replaces the existing strike plate and extends around the frame to offer up a small space for hanging whatever you need to take with you out the door. It’s a simple solution that would fit small entryways perfectly.

Romo Coat Hanger

Does this coat hanger remind you of the basalt columns at Giant’s Causeway? The answer is yes, whether you knew about the hexagonal stepping stones before I gave you the Wikipedia link or not. Designed and fabricated by Dan Romo, owner of Oakland-based Studio Romo, the Romo Coat Hanger is made of solid, cold-rolled steel and has magnetic covers to hide wall anchor bolts (a small-yet-very-nice detail).
