A wall mounted coat rack need not necessarily be full of hooks. The Wave Coat Rack is one example of how unique a coat hanger can be. It looks different and modern, perfect for the entryway. No J-type hooks that stick out but instead a wave design is seen with spots for you to hang your clothes up.
The neat thing is there is also a little room at the base of the rack for you to slot in small items like mails and a pair of glasses. Who says a coat rack must look like a rack at all?
