What organizing products are you looking for? The nice woman I spoke with today was looking for coat trees - and the first one on my previous coat rack post might suit her just fine. But I thought I'd poke around and see what else I could find. The one above is a very traditional look - a handcrafted mahogany coat tree. Update on May 26, 2011: Sadly, the website where I found this coat rack no longer seems to be working.
And here's another traditional-looking coat stand, in rust-patinated wrought iron. Update on May 26, 2011: The site that sold this coat stand no longer carries it.
OK, so much for traditional. Here's the stainless steel Nova coat stand, from Frost Design in Denmark, sold by Hightower in New York.
The same companies can provide you with the Wishbone coat stand; Homebits in the U.K. also sells this one. [via Daily Icon]
And these coat stands from Nava Design in Italy, sold by Panik in the U.K., have a somewhat similar look.
Here's another modern look; this one is called the Clusterstand. Update on May 26, 2011: I'm no longer finding this product.
Switching style again, here's a coat stand from Ute Australia. [via Topia7 design blog]
And for something really unusual, here's the Bodhi coat stand, "made from the branches of fallen trees." You can see some more pictures over on Flickr, here and here. Update on May 26, 2011: I'm no longer finding this product on the designer's web site.
