Weekend visits to friends revealed an awkward development in several small apartments- the proliferation of winter gear necessitated by our recent cold snap. With no coat closets and tiny hallways, many party hosts were left with no choice but the old coat-on-the-bed routine which really only works when there is no precipitation falling!
Searching the web for a better answer, we were excited to find this collapsible coat rack by the Austrian design firm Vandasye. We think this sleek pine and aluminum coat rack is an elegant solution for coping with coats, hats, scarves and bags during the winter months without sacrificing style or too much floor space. Unfortunately we don't see any information about purchasing this piece- have any readers seen one (or one like it) here in the US?
