A coat rack is a coat rack is a coat rack. Right? I mean, there are only so many ways to hang up a jacket. Well, if your vision of coat racks is limited to its function, youd be missing the possibilities of merging function with modern aesthetics. These racks show the beauty of design that turns a simple piece into a work of art. Yes, you can create a center of beauty with purpose in pieces such as these. We heart these amazing examples. #1For the cycling enthusiast, these Pottery Barn Teen Metal Handlebar Hooks come with a bike decal (no, the bike parts arent really there! Its a stick-on wall decal). Perfect for hanging book bags and backpacks. #2The Portland-based Merkled Studio offers this powder-coated aluminum coat rack, available in orange or white. Made to order. #3The paragon of understated chic, these powder-coated steel racks from Room & Board come in a handful of colorsand a small (think kids) and large (think you). #4Traditional meets sleek-modern with this Amenity Home rack with a letter-holding slot. Made with reclaimed wood, this piece is available in two sizes and brings nostalgia into the now. #5Dutch designer Robert Bronwasser has created this Tree for Cascado. Able to hold as many as 20 coats (!!), this lacquered fiberboard comes in the above three colors. Perfect for the savvy tree-hugger.
