Coatracks Hooks

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.

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.

20 Hangers Wardrobe

This wardrobe by Alice Rosignoli is made from 20 wood hangers and black ropes, which, let’s face it, is pretty ho-hum as far as materials. Surprisingly though, the simple design makes the most of a rather small area. If you’ve got a serious shortage of closet space, you might just consider a solution as uncomplicated as this.

Eames® Hang-It-All, Limited Edition

Huh? At first glance I thought this walnut version was very, very wrong, but then it struck me as a brilliant move from Herman Miller, as some of us would perhaps prefer a more subtle take on the normally colorful Hang-It-All. As it will only be in production for a few months (ending early 2011), I’d suggest getting one sooner rather than later.

Update: DWR sold out, but I found one other retailer that has a few (it seems):

Here Hook

Katie and I met the charming Richard Shed a few years ago at ICFF and I picked up his “Here Hook” and it’s one of my favorite pieces.

The Here Hook is a great design piece and at only $10 you can grab a few. Would be great in a kitchen as a dish towel holder, in the bath as a towel hook, or in an entry as a coat rack.
