Don't have enough closet space in the entryway? Looking for an easy way to get coats (or other clothes) hung up, rather than tossed on the floor or across a piece of furniture? Then you may want to consider either hooks or a product like the ones shown here.
The coat stand above comes from Misewell, and it's called Stretch. It's made in the USA. [Photo used with permission.]
Porada, an Italian company, makes the Flamingo coat stand, available in white, black, walnut and other finishes. One place to buy it is Mac & Mac Interiors in the U.K.
This coat stand is called Tree. It is one of the many coat stands — others include Twist, Pole and Coat Lamp — designed by Robert Bronwasser of Smool for Cascando, "a Dutch brand of innovative office and home accessories" where Bronwasser is now the art director.
Of course, you don't have to go for modern styling to get a nice coat stand. Here's Restoration Hardware's English Mac and Brolly Stand - a nice-looking adaptation of an old favorite.
And here's a combination coat, hat and shoe rack from Mark Love Furniture, found on CustomMade.
Finally, for a very different approach, take a look at the Martha coat rack from E15, sold by Nest. Yes, that's solid wood.
