Double-Duty Hooks Provide a Little Extra Storage

Now here's an interesting idea: a combination hook and storage cubby for small items. It's such a good idea that a number of such products have been designed. The one above, the @ entry hook, comes from Chiasso; it's made of die-cast aluminum. Update on May 20, 2013: has acquired the rights to the Chiasso brand, and doesn't seem to carry this product.

And then there's the hooknook from Flip & Tumble, made from 50% recycled polypropylene and available in three colors. [via Cool Mom Picks]

Another such product that got a lot of attention in the design world is the Cubby, but the designers have not yet found a manufacturer. When they do, I'll let you know! Update on Nov. 24, 2012: You can now, finally, buy the Cubby.
