After reading Grace's post on AT:LA about Japanese furniture store Idée, we checked out the catalog and noticed a lot of freestanding entryway racks. These types of racks are common in China and Japan, but we don't see them as much here in the US. They're a great solution for renters who can't drill hooks into their walls, and they offer a little more storage space than your traditional coat tree. For similar entryway ideas, click below...
