Last year at a neighbor's condo I saw this awesome hanging coat rack. I can't recall the details at this point, but I believe it was made of either steel cable or thick clear tubing, suspended from the ceiling. Interspersed over the length of the cable were curved metal hooks. Empty, it appeared to be a simple mobile, but our host told us it was actually a coat rack. We'd been looking for one for our very small entrance area, and when I asked him who it was by, it seemed as if he didn't want me to know and avoided answering. I figured he didn't want anyone else to have the same rack, so I let it go.
Now our current rack from CB2 is falling apart after only a year, and I think it takes up too much space anyway, so I'm on a hunt to find this one. I saw one by inno of Finland, the "Oka A" hanging coat rack (pictured above), and while it's nice, I preferred the other one I saw. I've attached a really poor rendition of the one I'm trying to find. If anyone has any idea of where I can find the cable and metal hook coat rack I described, or if they can offer suggestions for a similar one, I'd really appreciate it! A wall hanging one won't work as we don't have much wallspace, and what we do have is concrete.
Too bad your friend wouldn't share his resources with you, and thankfully AT readers are ALL ABOUT sharing their resources. We have seen very few ceiling-hung coat racks (and we've been scouring the web looking), so readers, we need you on this one. Good luck, Veronika!
