The Handy Coat Rack
Coat racks were created in a time when homes had very little closet space. People stored clothing in trunks and those who could afford expensive armoires stored their clothing in this massive wooden piece of furniture. The coat rack was designed out of necessity for added storage that was inexpensive and easy to move within a limited amount of space. There is no historical point that dates back to its creation though the hanger was created around 1903. It is quite amazing that such a simple piece of furniture has stood the test of time.
Multiple Materials, Colors And Styles To Choose From
Coat racks come in a variety of materials such as wood, metal or plastic. Each coat rack was modified to fit a style for a period in time as all furniture does. Asian, Victorian, English country and traditional styles grace the still modest coat rack. The useful ness of course has nothing to do with the style. Users can hang their hat, coat and scarf. There are coat racks with shoe storage and an umbrella rack. Simple but useful from humble beginnings to today’s hustle and bustle, the coat rack is still a popular piece of furniture.
