Whether the weather is brisk or drizzly, be prepared with a stocked coat rack to keep whatever you need to face the elements at hand.
KNIPPE Hat and Coat Stand
Bring a version of the outdoors in with this tree branch-inspired coat rack. The polished steel construction is large enough to hold multiple items of clothing, yet won’t add bulk to a space when empty. With hooks at two heights, there’s no excuse for the kids to leave their outerwear on the floor.
