Not Martha

functional and gorgeous

The other week I ran across a mention of the Bach Coat Hook on Apartment Therapy. I was glad to see it as I’ve spent far too much time this year looking for wall hooks and not finding any I wanted to purchase.

The Bach Coat Hook is called a kinder coat hook, it’s designed so that it won’t stretch out your clothes and leave a bump where they have been hung. The hook is make of stainless steel and it’s seamless so there is nothing to snag delicate fabrics or linings. It won’t rust and is suitable for use otudoors (this picture, which is among the random images on the home page, seems to turn a backyard fence into a spa location). It includes both a silver and black faceplate that cover the hardware and are customizable to match your interior. The second picture on this page shows a faceplate painted green to coordinate with the room. And (this is probably far from the intention of the design team but is something I’ve spent a bit of time imagining since one of the places we have hooks in our house is at the bottom of some stairs and I’m an awfully clumsy person) the tips of the hook aren’t sharp so if you should happen to bump into it (or trip and fall onto it) it won’t hurt you. The Bach Coat Hook has gotten good reviews and won the International Housewares Association Product Design Competition this year.

Note: They are having an End of Summer Special so you can get a set of six or nine hooks at a really good discount. I’m not sure how long the End of Summer Special will be running.

They’ll also be offering a slightly different style as well as smaller garment hooks soon, the smaller hooks will fit into corners and behind doors.

The Delta Design Group has some great looking storage options that I’ll definitely come back for. They have a fantastic array of bicycle and sports storage that would look great on the inside of your home. I really like the Michaelangelo 2 Bike Gravity Rack as you don’t need to attach it to the wall (good for those who rent). That same pricipal is used in the Rubens and Vermeer shelving systems which take up as little floor space as possible.

    I hate the dimple left in clothing by pretty much every clothes hook we own. I think I might need to try some of the Bach. I don’t see the set of nine but the set of six is a really great price, especially with the notMartha discount.

    I’m also kind of drawn to the Rubens shelving system but that’s probably because Rubens is my last name. Not the best reason to buy something.

    That $10 discount paid for my shipping. And just in time for my winter coats. Thanks!

    Sarah – When you land on the product page there is a drop down for the ITEM box, you can choose nine from there. While the set of six shows up on the shopping card page in a special message, if you add the set of nine to your shopping cart it has a note that you’re saving 46%. I’m not sure if the set of nine is always priced like this, it might be.

    I think the second picture looks kinda dirty, but that’s because I’m 12 years old.

    Linda – Then definitely don’t look here.

    It actually looks like an upside down uterus, which is very pretty!

    Great hooks! I ordered a 3 pack. Thanks for the discount. I was looking for exactly that for the outdoor shower near our pool (I live in Florida), so now I’ll have that outdoor-fence-looks-like-a-spa look too!

    I clicked the link just as my husband sat down next to me and apparently he’s 12 too.

    I’m confused. Which one is going to be the corner hook?

    The curvy one:

    Or the obscence one:

    You always help me find things I didn’t even know I needed. Yay! Thank you.
