Pretty Things That Caught My Eye: The Hook Up Edition

About time I plagued your minds with some more Pretty Things That Caught My Eye. Today I want to talk about hooks! I think they are rather comical objects to have in the home, simply because they look brilliant and then you stick your coat on them and forget about them. Quite absurd in a way. Nevertheless, I would like to invest in one because storage is running low in our little home!

Let’s start with a classic. Eames! One for the design conscious (looks over at Hiro), high quality, vibrant and iconic. The Hang it all coat rack has stood the test of time and still looks ever so contemporary. Designed in 1953 by Charles & Ray Eames:

I spotted the next two hooks in the Lifestyle Bazaar in Shoreditch. Designed by Thelermont Hupton.

Heel Coat Peg + Mirror designed by Mauricette Cornand

For the pragmatic! I am a hazard with a drill or a hammer come to think of it. These OTT hooks need no nails or screws, they just hang there! With some imaginative configuration I could create a graphic impact upon my hall door! I would get them in white I think. Designed by Byproduct UK

For my compulsion with TEA!! Look!! I most defiantly NEED a hook for my pearls! Designed by Louise Buchan.

I ever design obsessed. I read about new things that have been made with creative thought. I visit shops and showrooms and pick things up inspecting the details, the weight, the feel the colours. I can’t help myself! Having a partner who is a product/lighting designer doesn’t help.
