We stumbled across this key holder that appears to be wood but is, in fact, magnetized in order to simply "grab" your keys! We love the simple line, the novel approach to a landing pad, and the idea that we may be able to recreate something similar on our own.
Designed by Tomàs Bedós, this key board (available here) mounts right to the wall and snags your keys, or any other metal object, with no hook or latch. We love the look of this, and think it would be a great entryway or landing strip addition.
This is also one of those objects that seems like it would be ripe for a DIY. We have a roll of wood printed contact paper in our closet that may just be waiting for a similar project... For those a bit more expert in the ways of DIY, a wood veneer over a strong magnet could work! We love when design products get our creative mind simmering.
