There’s no getting around it. Sometimes you just have to leave things hanging. Here are six innovative ways to do just that.
1. Gym Hook Inspired by gym climbing hooks, designer Staffan Holm fashions these sporting good wall hooks in a variety of sizes and colors for coats, scarves, and more. Coming soon from: hay.dk
2. Frank Frank is playful and fun — but strong as steel. Developed and produced by Brooklyn’s David Barry, the wall hook is powder-coated steel and comes in a variety of colors. Hop to it: tinylightbulbs.com
3. Eames Hang It All Ever notice how the Hang It All shares its spidery mount with the wire-based tables and chairs by Charles and Ray Eames? That’s because they used the same welding-wire techniques to create it. Whimsy with a reason, perfect for any room. Hang it all: hermanmiller.com
4. Tree Hooked Coat Rack After marrying, designers Alissia Melka-Telchroew and Jan Habraken saw the joining of their family trees as inspiration for their first design project as husband and wife. The modular, powder-coated hook comes in black, green, silver, or white. Branch out here: store.module-r.com
5. Tape Hooks Simple, fun, and ingenious, these hooks look like any old strip of colored tape. But the colored plastic set of three adhesive hooks is perfect for hanging all sorts of doodads around the home, office, or studio. Even a roll of tape. Irony! Buy them at presentandcorrect.com
6. Shed Hook Dual-, even triple-purpose, Domesticity’s hooks are perfect for shedding outwear, keys, even the mail — just put them all in or on the shed. Get a few and assign one to each occupant. Powder-coated steel, available in orange, white, and grey. Get them at domesticity.bigcartel.com
