The Coat Tree™ is designed by Sidse Werner. It’s one of the world’s most mobile and functional members in this category. The light and fragile look hides the paradoxical fact that it is also one of the world’s most robust and practical stands: You can hang a surprisingly great number of heavy coats on it. The dynamic design is underlined by its ability to blend in anywhere and match the style of any room.
