For the organized naturalist, this Quadruple Sea Stone Wall Hook from Uncommon Goods is just beachy. We like this for any entryway or, as the web site says, a sophisticated mudroom. To save on the $200 price tag, this is surely something our savvy readers can do themselves, too.From Uncommmon Goods:
These long coat hangers feature sea stones taken from the shores of New Hampshire. The stones get their uniquely round shape from years spent in the ocean being tumbled with sand and waves. Each hook features copper hardware, a light-colored hardwood back, and a completely unique stone.
The stones are functional as well as beautiful - their round shapes won't deform coats or snag loose pieces of clothing as you walk by. For each stone "harvested" another rough quarry stone is "planted" in its place. In the same spirit, for each tree used for the backplates, ten times the number of trees are planted to conserve the future of our forests.
