Coatracks Hooks

Slide Hook AS-1

The Slide Hook houses spring-loaded hardware to keep your towels or apparel in place. Slide items into the opening to hold, and, to release, just give a simple tug. This ensures minimal effort on your part- let’s not call it laziness, we’ll call it ‘being efficient’- yes?

Femme Fatale

I’m sure you’d have fun guessing what this is, but I’ll save you the trouble: it organizes scarves. Attach the leather holder to a coat hanger, pull your scarves through the star shaped incisions, and voilà! Storage for your precious scarves. And, don’t go thinking this is just for the ladies, I know some of you guys are stylish enough to sport a few scarves now and then (or at least when it’s cold).

Tilt Oak Ladder

If you’re in need of a unique storage solution and have some money to spare, the Tilt Oak Ladder by Jack Smith of SmithMatthias is available for purchase, and would serve all manner of purposes in your kitchen, bedroom, or bath. Add a shelf or tray for an extra spot to corral smaller items- think silverware and spices in the kitchen, q-tips and bath creams in the bathroom, jewelry and smaller accessories in the bedroom. And, don’t be shy, move it from room to room on a whim if your storage needs change, as it can lean against any wall.

Eames® Hang-It-All, Black and White

Remember the walnut version of the Eames® Hang-It-All? Well, it was only a matter of time- 3 years, to be exact- when other color options hit the marketplace, and now you have your choice of white or black powder-coat finish. Is your response ‘hooray!’ or ‘ho-hum’? I’m leaning towards ‘hooray’ as the multicolored version can sometimes feel just a tiny bit too colorful in certain environments.

El Gringo – Wall Mounted Surfboard Rack

Make Co., of the Make Bike Rack fame (which we’ve posted before), now brings us this Wall Mounted Surfboard Rack called El Gringo.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but there aren’t so many surfboard racks that look at home in your living/dining/hallway area as there are that look like a store display system. And you certainly don’t want your home to feel like you’re selling surfboards, do you? Choose between steel or stainless steel; both versions have cork pads to protect your board. There’s also a small hook for hanging your towel and/or leash. Oh, and just one last thing- if you’re making time for surfing at this tail-end time of summer, you must be doing something right. Long distance high-five from me.

Clothing rail, Rectangular

So, who wants to spend $399 on a minimalist clothing rail and/or coat rack? I’ll be the first to put my hand up, despite the slightly ridiculous price tag and the fact that it can’t be shipped outside of Australia. Don’t worry, I won’t buy it, but let’s just think of the many unappealing options (search for ‘closet rail hardware’ and you’ll see exactly what I mean) and then let’s compare the minimal iron rail to all the parts and pieces of those other options. There’s something so appealing about reducing a clothes rail down to just an iron rod with hooks, as it would probably decrease our wardrobe to only a few select outfits. Sounds a bit utopian, doesn’t it? There’s also a Vertical and Round version, fyi.

Felt Wall Accessories

Hmm, these felt wall accessories would look oh-so-soft and organized in an entryway or above a desk, though it could get a little pricey should you choose to spring for several all at once. I smell a DIY project for someone handy with a drill and staple gun (and precut wood tiles, magnets, clock movement, etc.).
