Hanging by a Thread: 10 Creative Coat Hooks

There’s an old saying that goes, “Home is where you hang your hat,” meaning home is where and what you make of it.  Extend that definition to include coats, too, and the sentiment stays the same.  All transcendental passages aside, though, we’ve rounded up a series of creative coat hooks — some wall-mounted, some freestanding; some ultramodern and sleek, some upcycled from unexpected materials like skateboard wheels, vintage video game joysticks and chair backs.  All, though, serve as conversation pieces when welcoming guests into a home and ushering them out at the end of a visit, and all get the job done, hanging everyone’s coats and, ostensibly, making a house a home.
