Hooked on Hooks does John Wayne, almost…

28 Jun

Fresh from Hooked on Hooks is this unique hat & coat rack that I was tempted to call The John Wayne but snapped out of it at the last moment. Unashamedly cribbed from a scene in a 1950s John Wayne classic western, the shape of the plinth mirrors the headboard in a bed occupied by a woman about to give birth. (Perhaps I should have named it after the baby? Perhaps I should just has stolen the design and kept mum about its origins?). Anyway – am I babbling? – I can guarantee one thing, there isn’t another coat rack on the planet with this design, never mind the wood, which is 300-year-old English oak.
