Trivia Thursday: Eames Hang It All

There are coat racks, and then there are coat racks. Designed in 1953, the Eames Hang It All coat rack is a stand-out with its fun wooden balls. It was originally designed with the aim of encouraging children to hang up their own clothes. While the colourful Hang It All gets a lot of attention, the black and white versions are also deserving of our attention.

Marketplace: Design Within Reach

A colleague and I recently had a conversation about the fabulousness of Design Within Reach (aka DWR). DWR is an amazing place for furniture enthusiasts as it carries designs by faves such as Harry Bertoia, Le Corbusier, Charles and Ray Eames, Achille Castiglioni, and Frank Gehry. The designs are top-notch (and the prices reflect this).

My recent DWR-focused conversation sparked a much-too-long session of online browsing (and dreaming and wishing) which has now led to this blog post.

Here are a few of my current faves at DWR (prices are in USD).


Platner coffee table, $1567


Saarinen tulip arm chair, $1840

tripod-lamptripod floor lamp, $395

Jehs-Laub-loungeJehs and Laub lounge chair, $3100


Sonno Versa mattress, $2595
(I don’t know anything about this, but mattresses are on my mind a lot these days. I like this one because “sonno” in Italian means “sleep”)

And for outdoor living, here’s what caught my attention:
