Modern coat rack in a dark finish

Modern coat rack in a dark finish

Over 5.8 feet in height, this coat rack in a black metallic finish would steal the scene in any tall entryway while easily complementing modern interiors.

Designer Advice:

In fact, while lighter finishes tend to look more contemporary, darker options (whether wood or metal) can set the right modern tone from the start, as they were especially popular during several 20th century decades.

Modern coat rack with interesting geometrical shapes

Modern coat rack with interesting geometrical shapes

Thanks to the creative lines of its base, this four-footed iron and wood modern coat rack really embraces the geometric shapes that characterize these interiors. It’ll also be a breeze to match your palette since it’s available in eight color combinations!

Designer Advice:

While the hooks are obviously another logical place to introduce these symmetrical lines, choosing a modern coat rack with such a quirky base can help it make a statement even when it’s buried underneath all those coats.

Modern coat tree in a monochrome finish

Modern coat tree in a monochrome finish

This ten-hooked modern coat rack is available in four finishes (white, oak, black, and cherry), but they all have one thing in common: they’re stylish monochrome models.

This makes it even easier to match your palette while experimenting with less common wood finishes.

Designer Advice:

To help your coat rack stand out, though, choose a different hue from the one on the wall behind it: for example, lighter version would end up disappearing in a room involving white or cream tones.

Buying Guide

No matter where you live, a modern coat rack can help keep your entryway organized. Even if you live in the tropics where you are far more likely to need a place to hang a hat than a coat, a tidy rack can help keep outdoor wear neat and tidy.

No matter what sort of modern coat rack you select, they all fulfill a necessary function: a place to put your outdoor things when you come inside. That might be your parasol and shopping basket or it could be your parka and hood, but having a place to put things when you enter the door is a big boost toward the organization and toward decluttering by providing a place for each of your outdoor items.

The Free-Standing Coat Rack

The free-standing coat rack is a good choice for a rental home. It is easy to set up, does not require screws or nails and creates an almost instant organizational tool. Hats, scarves, jackets and even shopping bags can be hung on a free-standing rack. Just one caution: because it is free standing, it is a good idea to balance the load. Some are not as well braced on the bottom as others. Too much weight on one side could cause it to topple over.

Wall Hanging Coat Rack and Shelf

What could be better than a shelf for items like your purse, keys, wallet or other necessary items, with a row of pegs underneath? The shelves come in a variety of styles from a simple “floating” shelf to a series of pigeon holes that are suitable for mail. With a place to put essentials as well as a place to hang coats, hats or shopping bags, you can save time and energy because you won’t be searching the house over for that important item that needs to accompany you out the door.

V-Shaped Wall Hanger

Make the most of your wall space with a hanging peg unit shaped like an inverted V. The design spreads out coats and hats while making use of vertical space as well as horizontal – packing more pegs into a narrow width than would be possible for pegs in a row.

Farmhouse Coat Rack

Combine the best of a free-standing coat rack and a small set of shelves to come up with a free-standing coat rack that avoids the inherent instability of most such items. It has a broader shelf at the base, followed by a narrower one in the middle. The poles that hold the shelve together then narrow toward the top, where they are crowned with a circular band that holds the coat pegs. It can be used as a coat rack and organizer, or it can be turned into a plant stand or display unit.
