These fun hangers are by Icelandic designer, Ragnheidur Ingunn Agustsdottir and marketed through Birkiland. Cups are useful everyday objects, so why not use them in a totally different way? The cups themselves are wide enough to hang your coat or clothes on without them falling off. The cup handles are place in the upright position, presumably to help keep hanging clothes on. But if they had been the other way round, small hooks could be placed on the handles so you could hang up your keys!
Still a great conversation piece for your foyer if you have the kind of spare, clean style of decor much like that found in Iceland.
