Hooked on Hooks…literally

Soon to be married to interesting pieces of wood, a variety of hooks for bespoke orders from Hooked on Hooks

One of the most underrated, unappreciated, undervalued furniture items in the entire home, must be the humble coat rack.

If you haven’t got one, your hats, coats, scarves, dog leads, brollies, walking sticks, and all, must be cluttering up – or at least using up – otherwise useful space. And of course with a coat rack, you can see at a glance exactly where something is – no more rummaging around in rooms and cupboards looking for something.

But of course there are coat racks and coat racks. Most that you find in the shops are ghastly mass-produced abominations guaranteed to look like ghastly mass-produced abominations on your wall.

But a coat rack doesn’t have to be like that – nor does any other rack of hooks for kitchen utensils, croquet mallets, etc. Every Hooked on Hooks’ rack of hooks that I make is carefully thought out and painstakingly made by hand, using top quality materials and/or very often, unique reclaimed woods. Click on Hooked on Hooks’ Products  below to see a range of ready-to-buy handmade racks of hooks. And if you can’t find what you want there, scroll through the hundreds of racks in the Archive pages for ideas. Mix and match almost anything there – wood type, colour, design and of course hooks – and I’ll send you a same day quotation for what it would cost to make.
