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.Â

There are loads of reproductions out there and plenty of ideas about how to incorporate them into sleek, modern, classic, and traditional spaces. The chair is quiteÂ a versatile piece, so it’s little wonder why itÂ has been popular for so long.

I love geometric shapes in the home- the simple symmetry always pleases the eye, doesn’t it? This magazine rack – or is it a fire log holder? -would be useful. You could even house books or a plant in the centre.

I’m absolutely in love with this stunning drop lamp in the window at Zig Zag, of one of my favourite neighbourhood shops that specializes in mid-century modern furniture. Joe Graafmans, who owns the store and curates its offerings, has very good taste and the best modern lighting pieces I’ve seen in the city.
The light fixture I’m featuring here today is made in Italy by Vistosi and is an outstanding piece of art by day and night. As far as I know it’s still for sale ($1,195). I stopped by recently to admire it in the evening:
