Cool Coat Racks for Cool Weather

The temperature’s dropping and it’s just the beginning. Winter is a-comin’, everyone – there’s no denying that. Rather than wish away the onslaught of the cold weather – and the unruly piles of coats that come with it – embrace it and outfit your foyer or mudroom with a great new coat rack.

Coat racks have gotten a bad rap as eyesores, an unnecessary piece of furniture to stub your toe on and look messy. After all, why invest in a separate entity draped with coats that don’t stay on it when you can use a couch or chair instead?

These coat racks are going to destroy that sentiment. Not only are they functional and practical (because, let’s face it, nobody really wants coats flung over their couches), they’re design elements in their own right. Many even serve dual purposes!

First up: an updated twist on the literal coat tree.

(But be honest with yourself – wouldn’t you just hang your coats on the lower “rocks” anyway?)
