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.

Handmade Hooked on Hooks’ coat racks at The Gallery, Stourhead

21 Dec

I’ve been in art galleries far and wide, from Auckland and Sydney, to Paris and Bruges, Tokyo and Seoul, but I’ve never once encountered a coat rack – never mind three! But if there’s a secret to selling coat racks in a gallery, it’s probably this: no one goes to a gallery looking for a coat rack. All are love-at-first sight, spontaneous buys.

Featured here are three Hooked on Hooks’ coat racks currently offered for sale in The Gallery at the National Trust’s Stourhead Estate in Wiltshire. Available for purchase at The Gallery, or if you are not in the Stourhead area contact me first for online purchase and immediate dispatch by courier.

300-year-old new arrival from Hooked on Hooks

28 Aug

Handmade antique English oak hat & coat rack from Hooked on Hooks

Fresh from Hooked on Hooks is this beautiful Gothic-look hat & coat rack made from a 300-year-old English oak floorboard. All about the wood, the plinth features a church-like row of quatrefoil cut-outs. Unashamedly gnarled, holed, hard and heavy but full of character, the Georgian-era design cast iron, acorn-tip hooks make this a design that would sit equally well in a contemporary or traditional setting.
