Coatracks Hooks

Cloud Key Holder

I believe this key holder was first mentioned over on Swissmiss, and now there’s a US retailer for stateside convenience. Magnets hold your key ring in place under a little white cloud; hopefully it will help you avoid the frantic search when trying to find your keys.

Keyholder with magnets in ABS and nylon.
Designer: Duncan Shotton.
Also available from his shop for £20:

Geometric Animals

Whoa. If you’re not a fan of the taxidermy trend, have I got something to share with you. Bend Seating has trophy heads made of metal. And they’re geometric, engineered from a mathematical formula. And this makes them awesome. Wall art? Heck yeah. Coat hook? Yes please.

Sprinkle Wall Hook

Here’s something new for the wall: Sprinkle Wall Hook from Naft Design. When not in use, they’d almost look more like wall art rather than hooks, especially as some interesting shadows would occur in the right light. The hook is sturdy too, as it’s made from bronze.

The Piano Hanger

The Piano hanger takes the traditional coat hanger and smushes it flat against the wall. Inspired by traditonal piano hinges, each hook swings out when needed, and then folds back flat after usage. The Piano is available in a large (32” x 58”) and small size (15” x 58”), and in two finishes; Beech Lacquer and Oak Varnish. Designed by Patrick Seha for Feld.

These washi tape hooks sure are cute, aren’t they? Surprisingly enough, they’re made of tracing paper and can hold up to 50 grams (not a whole lot, but enough for small tools). They’d be perfect for a workspace/craft area.

I seriously like Kickstarter. There’s quite a few smart product ideas looking to get a little support, and it sure doesn’t take much money to help out. Case in point, these Wallplates by Justin Porcano. I’d say they’re an improvement on Paul Koh’s Toggle and Rocker Key Switch in that the hook (and/or envelope) function is located to the side instead of above the actual switch. Pledge $15 or more and you get the Hook version, shown on right.

For more details, visit Wallplates on Kickstarter.

Fold Key Hook

I’m a notorious key loser. Also notorious for looking for keys for like 15 minutes when they’re in my jacket pocket. Or in my purse. Or my tote bag. The problem is, I have too many places where my keys could be instead of having one designated place for them. Something like this little Fold Key Hook might just do the trick. The little “fold” could even hold my cellphone or wallet. I’m feeling more organized already.

Cork Peg (set of 2)

While I find these cork pegs to be a tiny bit expensive to cover a whole wall with, you might be burning $50 bills for the fun of it, so here you are. They’re actually a pretty good size, which is nice, and each peg comes with a magnetic mounting system. The total weight bearing capacity is 2.65 lbs when something is hung from the end and 4.85 lbs when something is hung from the middle. See the ‘how to use’ slideshow for the magnetic magic. Could be worth saving up for…

Single Drop Hook by Makr

This handmade, steel hook measures 5 inches down and extends 2.5 inches from the wall and comes with a leather base plate riser. Let’s face it, whatever you’ll be hanging has to be pretty spectacular to be spending $75.00 just for the hook. But, if for some reason you’ve been needing hand forged steel hooks with a leather base plate riser…here you go.

Moose Valet

While this might be named after a moose, some would say it resembles a bird in flight or a whale’s tail. Whatever you might see, the bent beech plywood is a nice option for hanging various clothes or accessories on.

Slit Keyholder

A couple of you have written in asking where this might be available since the original retailer ( shut its doors. Form.Function.Style carries it now for AUD $55.00.

Quote Hook coat hook

Need a bit of inspiration when heading out the door? These coat hooks from Blend Design will do the trick. Choose between ‘Keep Moving Forward’, ‘You Make It Happen’, and ‘Live Your Life’. I can think of a few others that I’d like to see (‘stop your whining’ ‘get over it’ etc.) but they wouldn’t necessarily be labeled as inspirational.

Nua Nest Set

These colorful little pod-like pieces would be perfect for putting by the door for small things like keys, sunglasses, phone, etc. They’re small enough you can hang a jacket or coat on top, which is a definite plus. Made out of rolled bamboo using traditional Vietnamese skills.

Comes in a set of five: One large red, one large turquoise, one small yellow, one small purple and one small blue.

Thru-Block coat rack

This modular coat rack could be perfect for an entryway where you might need a little customization in order to fit the space. Since it can get expensive for the larger patterns (like the 23 piece one below), you might want to start out with the 7 piece ‘freeform’ to see how it works first.

Shown above: Thru-Block coat rack with nine wooden blocks with 5 evenly spaced holes drilled through them. $600.00

Hookless Hanger

Okay, so be prepared for a little bit of an infommercial when visiting the site of, (there’s a video with sound that starts automatically, fyi)… now that I’ve warned you about that, these hookless hangers are actually pretty smart, as they save quite a bit of space in the closet. By eliminating the closet rod in favor of a magnetic strip system, there’s about a 20% gain in space with the added aesthetic benefit of a streamlined look. While it would cost a pretty penny to overhaul your whole closet, it could be a smart solution for a small coat closet where every inch is needed.

5 Natural Shirt Hangers start at $19.99 with a 4″-12″ Closet Strip costs $4.99.
