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.

alistair-moir-designs-001…I will turn one coat rack into two!

Moving house is never cheap and one of the reasons is because things like curtains, carpets and yes, coat racks, don’t always fit into their new home.

Solution: Turn one large coat rack into two smaller racks (See pictures!).

If, like this particular customer you find yourself with a Hooked on Hooks’ coat rack that won’t fit into a new place, contact me and I’ll do my best to convert it into two racks.

Hooked on Hooks…literally

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

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.
