The Skyline Coat Rack is a Smart Place to Hang Your Street Clothing

An irregular row of nails in the wall may perform adequately as a system for suspending your scarf and hat but a piece like the Skyline Coat Rack can become a bit of interior decor as well. The purely functional works for some, but it's hard to resist the playful charm of objects that offer a little more.

Designer Chris Jackson may have begun with a mere rod of mild steel but what he created satisfies as sculpture. He worked to shape the 6 mm wire into 90 degree bends with the intention of producing a simplified outline of a cluttered urban profile complete with office towers, smoke stacks and alleyways. The Skyline Coat Rack offers places to hang jackets and bags from the bits of the bar that crook away from the wall.
