I ask this question in all honesty because it seems to be to be a truth universally acknowledged that a single hook in possession of a coat will very shortly be overwhelmed by about 16 other coats and eventually fall of the wall leaving a socking great hole that no amount of filler will ever plug and therefore reducing the available space left to hang coats still further.
So when I saw this, which comes from Skandivis and costs £25.50, I thought it must be a good idea because it acknowledges that we will all try and put too much on a hook and this one gives us formal permission to do that. I can’t prevent it falling off the wall for you, but at least you can pile a couple of coats on this one and then add a hanger or two.
It’s Danish you see. They’re good at form and function. My hall hooks are all form and no function. Because the other truth that we universally fail to acknowledge, is that we all own more coats than we a) realise and b) admit. And as much as we say we’re going to put the summer ones in the wardrobe during the winter and vice versa, we don’t. Not ever. Which is another truth. Right that’s enough home truths for one day. I’ll see you tomorrow where you can find out about the ten best round dining tables as requested by many of you many times…..
