city-coat-rack

A coat rack is one of those things that’s usually pretty simple – a standard hook or set of hooks affixed to the wall in a nondescript way. Or, if you’re in college, a handful of ten-penny carpenter nails hammered haphazardly into the sheetrock. The coat rack deserves more respect than that though, as the folks at Radius Design will attest. Each of their “City” coat racks portrays the gems of that town’s skyline. It was designed in Germany and therefore has a disproportionate number of German cities, but Germany has a disproportionate number of really beautiful cities. Each rack (Cologne, Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Dortmund, Munich, Stuttgart, New York, London and Paris) comes with 19 pegs for your 19 dinner guests.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
