High/Low: A Midcentury Coat Stand and a $35 Ikea Lookalike

Michelle Slatalla October 09, 2014

As we’ve been organizing mudrooms and training family members to hang up jackets this week, our thoughts naturally turn to stylish coat stands.

Two we covet at opposite ends of the price spectrum are classic freestanding wood coat trees–with tree branches on which to hang jackets:

Artek’s classic wood clothes tree, designed by Anna Maija Jaatinen in 1964. It has a metal tripod base and longer pegs at the top of the tree to make it easier to hang bags and small items below.

Above: An inch taller, Ikea’s birch stand has slightly different proportions and design features. With a white fiberboard base, the PS 2014 Hat And Coat Stand is designed by Ebba Strandmark and measures nearly 71 inches tall. It has a clear lacquer finish; $34.99. 

Above: The original Clothes Tree is available in several colors (including natural lacquered birch) from Hive Modern; $1,405.
