Modern Coat Racks

As evidenced by my recent Holiday Gift Guide, I've got storage on the brain. Inspired by my friend Mary Halvorson—a very talented musician who happens to be in the market for a coat rack—I've put together this roundup of seven modern, compact, and affordable (and, also, um, not-so-affordable) coat racks that look as good as they work.

New Media: Sight Unseen

Jill Singer and Monica Khemsurov met as editors at the venerable I.D. in 2005 and both developed a passion for peeking behind the scenes at the creative processes of designers—–access that came with working for an established print publication.

When David Alhadeff opened The Future Perfect in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 2003, he made it his mission to showcase new and fresh design. Seven years and three retail outposts later, he’s still on the beat, championing undiscovered talent alongside now-established designers, some of whom, like Jason Miller and Lindsey Adelman, he’s fostered since the shop’s inception. “I’m always looking for what you haven’t seen before,” he says.

Furniture Design: Misewell

Growing up in southeastern Wisconsin, Vincent and Paul Georgeson used to hang out in their father’s basement woodshop, fascinated by the process of building things. It was a formative experience: Both brothers went on to study industrial design in college, and in 2008 they started a Milwaukee-based furniture company. The next year they unveiled their first eight products at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, including the Lockwood chair, a shaped walnut or maple seat on a formed steel frame. They named the brand Misewell, a nod to Midwestern slang for “might as well”—–as in, “misewell start a furniture company,” says Paul, laughing.
