11 Favorites: Display-Worthy Clothes Hangers

April 6, 2015

Have you noticed? Clothes hangers are getting interesting. You don’t need a closetful; just one or two will do–for displaying a favorite frock or a collection of scarves or necklaces.

Above: The handmade Steel Hanger from March is $40; it’s lovely (Alexa has one).

Above: The vintage-inspired collapsible Flex Hanger is $14 from Anthropologie.

Above: Ferm Living’s Wire Hanger, of black powder-coated steel, is €12 ($13.19) for two from the Finnish Design Shop.

Above: The wood and leather Georg Hanger from Skagerak of Denmark is $75 for a pair from the Danish Design Store. It’s shown here with the Georg Wardrobe Rack; $225. See more of the line in our post Storage Furniture from Denmark. (And for other inventive uses for leather cord, take a look at our three DIYs: Leather Lace and Wooden Ball Door Pull, Leather Shower Curtain Rings, and Braided Leather Drawer Pulls for $1.25 Each.)

Above: Designed by Nakagawa Masashichi Shoten, the Sigmoid Hangers are available in two sizes ($6.30 for the small and $8.10 for the large) from Rakuten Global Market.

Above: Handmade in Japan, the Brass Towel Hanger with visible hammer marks is $53 NZD ($40.14 USD). It’s also available in Iron for $46 NZD ($34.84 USD) and recommended as a hand towel holder in bathrooms and kitchens. 

Above: From Danish design company Hay, we’re coveting a set of five Copper Hangers; €10 ($10.78) at the Finnish Design Shop. 

Above: A Copper Round Scarf/Towel Hanger from UK shop Posh Totty; £7.50 ($11.73).

Above: Another notable design by Hay, the string-wrapped Cord Hanger comes in several color combinations (gray shown here); a set of three is 129 DKK ($18.99) from Hay.

Above: Fog Linen’s brass Shirt Hangers, hand-wrought in India, are $9 each.

Above: The Oksana Coat Hanger from Swiss design studio Bernhard Burkard is made of Ukrainian belt ribbon fitted with wood slats. Winner of the 2014 Bronze A’ Design Award, the ultralight hangers are $28 each (less for 10 or more) and can be customized in different woven patterns; for details and to place orders, write to info(at)bernhard(dot)burkard.com.
