Wave Coat Hanger

This was posted way back in the early days, but as the original retailer no longer carries it and it’s cold weather season, an update was needed.

Wave Hanger, designed by Nanni Holén, adorns both halls and bedrooms. Place the hanger wherever you want your clothes, bags, and robes. Your children’s hangers can even be under yours. Adjust the length by attaching as many Wave Hangers to each other as you like. To achieve even more interesting effects, use light to create waving shadows from the hanger.

2-pack (17.7″ x 7.9″) Total of 35.5 inches when mounted side by side
Black or White.

Honey, I’m Home (Magnetic Key Holder)

A very simple alternative to the many hooks and boxes out there. I wonder if the magnet is strong enough to toss your keys at it and have them stick…if so, it’d be a neat trick.

This magnetic key holder by Arik Levy can be mounted to the wall right near your door so you never misplace your keys again! Genius.

Dimensions: 3″w x 6.25″h x 1.5″d

Lean-on Coat Rack

This would look excellent anywhere you need more space for coats or clothes, and given that it is now on sale for $150 instead of $275, you’d have to be crazy (or broke) to pass it up.

Life Line Coat Hanger

While I wouldn’t necessarily call this coat hanger “hilarious”, I would call it kind of clever.

“Never suffer through the pain of losing (or misplacing) your beloved coat, hat or sweater again, simply hang it up on this hilarious life line coat rack. Whether you’re a doctor, nurse or Grey’s Anatomy junkie, this clever coat rack is sure to make everyone laugh (and that’s good for the heart). Red enamel on steel rod. Made in China.”

Trophy Hangers by Phil Cuttance

An altogether new take on the trophy trend…

“The concept is quite obvious, traditional animal trophies are a pretty ridiculous thing, so Phil’s hangers turns the trophy notion on its head, well actually on its butt… Whichever animal you choose, it always comes in a set of 2 – with every front bit you will get the rear as well. They are made out of poly resin and are 7 cm wide and 11 cm high (2.75″ x 3.5″) and extend out roughly 3″ or 8 cm.”

Wood Rings and Hooks

With modern items usually leaning towards the polished and lacquered look, something like these wood rings and hooks would be a natural contrast (either in a room or upon the body).

Rings, $30 ea.:“The finger rings are created from hardwood tree branches and are finished with marine-grade polyurethane to make them water resistant and more durable…Because the rings are handcrafted, the sizes are approximate, but we can come pretty close.”

Hooks, $30 ea.:“Handcrafted from Maple, Beech or Birch or other hardwoods grown in Jacksonville, Vermont, these Timber products are individually unique. The wood is cut, naturally dried for 24 months and then crafted into its final shape. No two pieces are exactly alike, but the size of most of these Timber items can be customized to fit your particular needs.”

Leather Coat Rest

This is one of the strangest coat ‘rests’ I’ve seen, but in the best possible way. It has a very sculptural look, with or without outer attire. Also available in
Dark Brown if you’d prefer a more subtle look.

“This unconventional design is created using weighted balls of stitched burnt orange, red and brown leather. The coat rest attaches to the wall by the leather rope that secures the balls in place; a perfectly practical yet ultimately stylish piece.”

Concrete Bulb Hook

A concrete light bulb? Certainly something you don’t see everyday, you can hang your hat on this hook knowing it’ll stay put. Plus, you’ll probably get the ‘Where did you get that!?’ question when you have visitors, leading you to believe that your coolness factor increased.

“Made from a cement mortar mix, this lightbulb hook was poured into a hollowed out lightbulb, cured and then had the glass removed. The glass mold gives it a high shine and polished surface. During curing, the mortar mix leaves small holes in the surface whichadd texture and character. Because of this, every Concrete Lightbulb is unique. A lag bolt was embedded before curing, and sticks out 1.5″ inches to insure a solid grip into the wall when mounted.”

Overall length: 5.75″, Weight: 11 oz

Oak Coat Rack by Big-Game

With cold weather fast approaching, or already here as the case may be, this coat rack is the perfect solution for your hats and coats and such. It leans against the wall, so it would be easy to move to wherever you need it, not to mention being able to store it in a closet or out of the way when the seasons are warmer- though you might not want to since it’s so sculptural.

“Made of two slits, cut into a linear piece of wood, the Oak Coat Rack’s beauty comes from its sheer simplicity. By avoiding any glueing or assembly, the quality of the wood is beautifully highlighted, making the materials the aesthetic focus of the piece, rather than the form.”
