Coat rack on demand

I am on a mission to find the "right" coat rack, after my husband's repetitive request  for a hanger up on our hallway. I am in love with the design classic Eames "hang it all", but I find myself in difficulty to decide between the playful multicoloured hooks on a white wire frame or the sophisticated monochromatic walnut balls on a black steel version.. What is your pick?



The Eames first hanger was designed in 1953 as children's furniture for a playhouse line. A couple of years ago, an original vintage Eames Hang-it-All was sold at an auction for $2125!

Here are some pinterest ideas:









And for those who think that an authorised reproduction is an extravagant buy, there are plenty of replicas on the web, or even better for the artistic spirits over there, why don't you try to create one by yourself?

  2. Oh, the colourful one is absolutely great on a white wall! You could buy the colored one and some time after, when you'll be tired of it, you can paint it brown or black. ;-D Or otherwise, you can take wooden one and colour it when you're tired of it ;-)

  3. Defo go walnut - it will go with everything as your home evolves and colour schemes change - that would be my pick! I'm totally coveting this one at the moment - http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/woodendesigns/product/wooden-coat-rack-six-hook

  6. I vote for the monochromatic walnut balls! It's simple and it's easy to design around it! Good luck! :)
