Clothes hangers are functional items, but that doesn’t mean they should be overlooked. Whether you choose wall-mounted hooks, a column with a base, a clothing rack or individual hangers is up to your taste and the dictates of the space. Free-standing hangers are great for the entrance to an office, home, or bedroom. They’re a practical to keep all the family’s hats, scarves, totes, umbrellas and jackets in one easy-to-find place. Yet they’re often small enough to tuck behind a door.
Wondering what to get the man who already has it all? If he means business when dressing for work, buy him specially designed coat hangers that hark to the dressing etiquette of times gone by. Some of these come with sturdy, curved hangers fit for a suit, and trays for other personalised grooming touches, such as cuff links. Gold accents add that luxe vintage sophistication.
For something more feminine, padded coat hangers covered in cloth can carry the room’s fabric décor right into wardrobes, adding pleasing consistency. This is especially true for rooms with exposed clothing racks or walk-in closets. Got floral cushions on your bed? Why not have the same textile pattern lining your hangers and shelves? Dressing should be a confidence-boosting experience, so there’s no need to make your clothing and accessory storage area dull and uninspired. Good Dressing is the first hint of classic furniture.
