A Kinder, Gentler Coat Hook

Just as I was about to order the Eames' Hang It All for our entryway, I discovered the Bach. Winner of the International Housewares Association Product Design Competition, this hook prevents that collar bulge that can stretch and distort fabric and ruin your favorite wool pea coat. And at a price of less than $50 for six electro-polished, solid stainless steel hooks, my winter coat storage worries are over.

The International Housewares Association (IHA) does not have a "Product Design Competition." This product was entered into the Housewares Design Awards, sponsored by HomeWorld Business magazine. IHA administers the judging for this program. I love the product, but no awards have been given. Finalists will be announced soon.

Interesting- on the company website it states that the Bach won the award in March 2007.
