Like many a good idea, Hooked on Hooks was born by accident out of simple necessity. Unable to find a coat rack for our own home that was not, to put it bluntly, cheap and tacky, I decided to make one from old wood and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Recognising an opportunity, I unexpectedly found myself starting a business when most people are looking to retire. Drawing on a lifelong love of working with wood (my sister still has a wooden step-ladder that I made in 1963 at the age of 13), and having worked in sales, photography, journalism, management and more, I realised I was perfectly equipped to deal with every aspect of a coatrack-making business.

If I’m a man on a mission, that mission stems from the realisation that every home in Britain, no matter how humble or how grand, needs hooks.  And despite evidence to the contrary, a marketplace awash with cheap and nasty hooks, a coat rack does not have to be a utilitarian eyesore – it can and should be a beautiful item of furniture in its own right.
