S02 coat rack

by Grace Bonney

I’ve always been more of a coat hook girl, but lately I’ve been tempted by the idea of a nice standing coat rack. Sure it might take up some valuable floor real estate, but if it was cute, maybe I’d be tempted to use it when I walk in rather than dumping my coat on the couch like I always do. This simple but beautiful new rack is the work of designer Zhao Lei of smartwoodhouse. Made from European beech, each rack has a clever interlocking structure that is made seamless with hidden hardware joins. It reminds me of a minimalist tree waiting to be decorated with some cute bags and coats. The site is primarily in Chinese so if you’d like to order, drop Zhao an order right here via email.
