Taking a stand

19 Oct

Shopping in one of my favourite stores, Tiger, the other day, I spotted this fantastic black tree-shaped coat stand (top) for just £20. It’s not just great-looking, but usually this kind of thing costs hundreds of pounds.

It got me thinking – maybe there are other bargainous coat stands out there. While most are mega expensive, the high street is finally catching on, and even Ikea has gotten in on the act. It’s stylish Knippe hat and coat stand is just £22:

And that’s kind of it! The only others in the vaguely reasonable price range are from Dwell, below, who have a good selection. They’re riced from £69 to £129, and come in various colours and finishes. The only downside is that they’re almost too nice to cover in bulky winter coats…!

      Back when I wrote that post, you could buy the coat stand from Tiger (www.tigerstores.co.uk to find a store near you), however their stock is seasonal, so they may no longer sell it. Dwell (www.dwell.co.uk) sells a similar one, but it’s £149; and Cox and Cox (www.coxandcox.co.uk) sell one in white for £60. Just check the size as I think it’s for kids, so might be a bit smaller than you were hoping for!
      Hope this helps,
