Hooks: Organizing Made Easier

hooks that look like corkscrews

Hang up your coat. I have a lot of trouble with this one, so now I use a hook instead of a hanger. — Gretchen Rubin, writing about ten easy, quick tips to keep clutter under control

Back in March, I wrote about interesting hooks over on the Core77 website. But now I have some more to share!

The corkscrew-shaped hook above is the Barrina, designed by Ernest Perera for Amor de Madre. [via Shoebox Dwelling and Remodelista]

We’re into baseball season here in the U.S., so it’s a good time to share these Homerun hooks from Sylvain Willenz.

hooks made from metal pipes

This hook comes from Oilfield Slag, which makes products from reclaimed materials.

hooks that look like a box of cookies

These hooks from Formabilio are designed to look like a box of shortbread cookies with a chocolate or cream glaze. The designer is Andrea Brugnera. [via MoCo Loco]

hook that's also a big clothespin

And finally, here’s The Beak from Vilhelmine Design — a hook that can work as most hooks do (where you toss something over it) but can also grab things in that beak! The Beak is reminiscent of the Pince Alors hooks from Swabdesign, which I’ve mentioned before. [via Design Milk]

Love that Beak, Jeri! Not only do I suggest hooks for people who don't want to hang up clothes, I also recommend them in the bathroom - much easier than folding a towel over a bar.

I'm with you, Marcie - I suggest hooks for all over the place!
