- The Valdo Coat Hanger by Cattelan Italia
More of a sculpture than a functional piece of furniture, the Valdo Coat Hanger is both beautiful and practical.

Each section features a hook to the top, to hang coats all around, making this a really functional piece.

- The Sipario Coat Hanger by Cattelan Italia
Yet another sculptural yet functional piece by Cattelan Italia, the Sipario Coat Hunger could be likened to the shape of a beautiful shell, or an iconic opera house. Original and striking, this will well and truly add the wow factor to your entrance hall.

- The Baum Coat Hanger by Cattelan Italia

With a matte white finish, the design has an almost ethereal feel to it. Stylish and simple yet expected, this coat stand will add an organic yet modern feel to your home.
- The Air Coat Stand by Cattelan Italia
