One new project that I recently finished is a Handmade Walnut Coatrack. A client sent me this beautiful photo as inspiration inquiring about a new piece for her entryway. She wanted a long coat rack to replace her existing one, with a slight ledge so small items could be stored on top as well. She liked the idea of using sturdy 5" bronze hooks that would be in a dark oil rubbed finish.
I loved the inspiration photo above and how the hats and belongings added to the overall style and feeling of the entryway, which reminded me of how we used these 5 tips to declutter our entryway at the start of the year. For me, the height and structure of the hooks, complimented the long 48" rectangular shape of the rack. I love it when, a custom project leads to a new product in my shop!
Currently, I plan to explore other types of hardwood such as Hickory that would pop against the darker hooks, I always admire lighter wood for a Scandinavian look. What other types of wood would you like to see this rack available in? It feels like summer is just around the corner in L. A, which means we will be spending more time outdoors and at the beach. We will have beach totes, sun hats and summer scarves that all need arranging. How about you?! What activities do you have planned this summer?
I promise to post follow-up pics of this project showing the new coat racks in Hickory hardwood, along with photos of my client's entryway, so check back in with me:)
