Use Your Walls: Unusual Hooks and Coat Racks

coat rack shaped like foosball character

What can I say? For those of us who are attracted to the unusual, this Foosdude coat rack seems pretty wonderful. Update on August 13, 2009: The web site selling this product seems to have disappeared, and I'm not finding another site selling this product.

Another option for foosball fans is the table football coat hook.

Now let's jump over to the Netherlands for a few interesting options. Here's a basic but still somewhat unusual hook from van Esch. [via FromEurope]

Here's the coat hook called Saturn, named after the planet and its satellites.

And this coat hook, from BureaudeBank, is shaped like a Dutch bread clip (and looks pretty much like the bread clips here in the USA, too). See the pricing information here.

Returning to the Americas, the Tusk coat hook designed by John Greg Ball is available from Connect Mommies & Babies in Canada, which does ship internationally. See the contact information.

As always, Jeri, your selection of aesthetically-pleasing and USEFUL organizing tools just floors me. I'm in love with the offerings from your link to Kids Deserve Art. Would it be too outrageous for a forty-something to get the "Castle" hook? :-)

Julie, of course not! Go get yourself a castle if you want one!

Haley-O, you're very welcome. They are very cool hooks - I love finding such things!

I want to buy the Saturn hook, how much is it?

Cynthia, I don't sell anything. When I click on the link, I see the company selling it is asking for 29.95 euros.
